In the first part of this two-part series, Joe McQuillan and Alan McCubbin introduced us to high-fat, low-carbohydrate (HFLC) diets and compared two athletes who were about to start a HFLC diet. In the second and final part in this series our authors show how the two athletes responded to their diets and show you what a HFLC diet actually looks like.

Chef Biju Thomas of Skratch Labs feeds the pro peleton at races like the Tour of California and walks us through his rice cake race food (video).

Next Level Nutrition's insight:

I make these rice cakes with the search2retain p/b health.com.au team for races of >5 hours. They're a great alternative to gels and bars.

In this first part of a two-part series, Joe McQuillan and Alan McCubbin introduce us to high-fat, low-carb diets, discuss the benefits of such diets and look at how you can try one for yourself.
