The key for carbohydrate loading to be effective for exercisers with diabetes is to ensure that your muscles can take up any available glucose, which only happens if you have sufficient levels of insulin and enough sensitivity to it to prevent hyperglycemia and promote glucose uptake.

However, the net effect is reduced liver glucose output, thus rendering the insulin­dependent diabetic potentially at risk for hypoglycemia or low blood sugar unless he or she either decreases the intake of insulin or increases the intake of carbohydrates before engaging in unusually strenuous prolonged exercise.

The reasoning for this advice has been that the combined effects of insulin (secreted in response to the high glycemic index products) and muscle contraction mediated glucose uptake (physical activity) would result in hypoglycemia immediately prior to or at the onset of exercise and thus negatively affect performance.

  • I’ve discovered decades ago, as a runner, that taking a break was a good thing. Ron Hill never took a break and also was a heavy volume runner! Such dedication. But making a him a role model for training in the 1970’s was not the best, unfortunately. It could lead to burn-out, if not overtraining, or too much volume for volume’s sake.

    What I found out by experimenting was that, even if you do the hard-easy-hard or hard-easy-easy-hard training philosophy, either on a weekly or 3-6 week cycle, there is also a macro cycle that you need to take a break. While still training, a 3-1 or 3 weeks training and 1 week easy is beneficial. But even on a bigger cycle, as in seasonal, that 10-14 day no workout is good. You can go no more than 3 weeks for that.But even after that rest or “vacation” from training, one must still ease up slowly or gradually. No serious training or need to meet zones or mileage or time. As you said, basically just go as you feel and enjoy it. Maybe be on this type of workout for 2 weeks.

    It was in this break that I jumped levels. It was in this level that I was able to break 37min in the 10k and even do sub 17min in the 5k. I could go maybe 35min for the 10km, and mid 16min or low 16min for the 5k. That is coming from a low 18min 5k and hard to meet 37min 10k.

    Even if I was not sure why this happened, the psychological unburdening of not having to think of training or having to meet targets or the schedule sort of “relaxed” my mind. No pressures.

    Bottom line is even if one does not know what happens physiologically, there are benefits to taking a “vacation” from training. In many respects, that OFF time, is still part of training. It’s time for the body to recoup, recover, and consolidate. The loss in some aspects of training as we know it where one does something is made up for that rest period. That is why, in many respects, that is still training in the bigger scheme to things. LIke the cycle of life, there is a time to plant and work, a time grow, a time to harvest, and a time to sit back and relax and enjoy the fruits of one’s labor. Then we start all over again!

  • Remember in my first season racing I actually got my first win in a Crit after taking 2 weeks off because of university exams. The first time I turned a wheel in 2 weeks was on the start line. Just remember my legs feeling so fresh I went so much deeper than I had before then.

  • 45-yo with one solid year of training under my belt, and I’m adding in this anecdote to support your video. (I love your channel btw.) A year ago I was a 230# fat guy. I bought a hybrid bike. I live on gravel roads, and I found out gravel racing is a thing so I bought a gravel bike, then found a generic “couch to 50 mile” workout on the internet. I rode a 50-mile gravel race in March and was hooked. I started doing a lot of intense intervals and speed work during the week and long rides on the weekends, along with weights 2 or 3 times a week. By June I tried (and failed) at a super-hilly century, then I completed my first century gravel race in late August. I pretty much rested all of September and the first half of October (I coach football so it’s a perfect time). I took 2 entire weeks off. In mid-September, I began to go on some rides when I wanted to on the weekends. I started lifting in mid-October again, and I’ve stretched out to 50 mile rides on the weekends again. After 2 weeks of training, I can tell you that the time off did me good. I’m not back as strong as I was, but I’m a hell of a lot stronger than a year ago. Dylan, thank you for the work you do.

  • The Keto eating plan long term was a car crash for me and a relative of mine. I developed very bad shooting leg pain just before sleeping at night, when it wasn’t just before I slept it happened while I was sleeping instead and woke me up. This was after making sure all my nutrition was on point including mineral consumption. The pain from following a keto eating plan from Thomas D led me to broken sleep, walking with leg pain, worrying about the leg pain before and during sleep and crashes in energy throughout the day. I would recommend avoiding it at all cost.

  • your videos really give us a clearer picture! i just bought a keto diet cookbook, and they always put cream etc… i can’t trust those!i think the key points of all diet is, picking healthy ingredients, no processed food haha

  • Hi! i liked this video, and also i want to use the links of your videos and apply it on a mobile application which is promoting avoidance and prevention of diabetes. that way, your videos will be watchable from the mobile app. i hope you give me your permission. thank you and God bless!

  • Thanks for making all these videos. I am a science nerd and after bing watching them (all) I am excited to get back to structure training for 2020 race season. I am:( Sad you are not taking new clients. But still happy to learn so much through your videos and comments.

  • Do you have any advice about riding in colder weather? Being an older cyclist with rheumatic aches and pains, I stay indoors when the temperature is single digits: Is it better to take up another sport during winter or just HTFU since there is no way I can cope with more than an hour on the indoor trainer? Winter riding seems impossible!

  • I heard about the Keto meal plan and it didn’t make sense so I put it off for a long time. The concept grew and a few months ago I started it on the fly. It was a spontaneous decision. I maxed out losing 15 pounds of water weight/some fat. And that was in a few months and it served it’s purpose. Like anything else there’s a balance and I every once in awhile I’ll eat a meal with sweet potato or some other carb. It’s like one day I’m keto, another day carnivore, and then South Beach. I think we need some carbs for the reason Jeff explained. Now do we need it 3 or more times a day spiking our blood sugar to new heights. No, I’m still open to new ideas and moderation plus common sense goes a long ways.

  • Thank you sooo much. I was looking for something like this since 1 year. Just want one more help from you…. Could u please suggest me any diet before and after this excersice…

  • I found keto because I have shit genetic when it comes to storing body fat. If I eat a grain of sugar i gain a pound of fat lol… keto lets me have the body I want and I love it for that reason… also steak…

  • Love this. I subbed. My only critique is less scholarly articles and keep the explained topics stupid simple. Also….. I think Chris Horner would laugh at rest training ��

  • Hey is there any exercise besides the ones I’m doing through Your channel that can help me with the restriction on my blood flow on my legs and hands I have bad anxiety and I’m always worrying and I can’t afford a doctor or some fancy gym so I use your channel to work out is there any advice you could give me

  • Excellent Video clip! Excuse me for butting in, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you thought about Patlarny Sugar Outcome Principle (search on google)? It is a good exclusive guide for reversing diabetes without the headache. Ive heard some decent things about it and my friend Sam at last got excellent success with it.

  • TL;DR: There’s no difference in strength, but there is in muscle size because of glycogen loss (until you consume carbs again).
    I am not a scientist nor any kind of expert on the topic of keto diet but I have to say I disagree on the point that muscle performance decreases, I was on keto for 2 years and I did indeed lose glycogen, my muscles did appear quite a bit smaller and my weight was lower (72kg, 10% body fat). However, my strength was only diminished while my body was adapting to keto diet (first few weeks or so and after that I was lifting the same and even improved my performance over time) and as soon as I went off keto diet, my glycogen was back and I could literally see my muscle size increase the same day, but my muscle performance did not increase AT ALL when consuming carbs again.

  • Great video Jeff! I’ve been keto almost 3 years but I take break. Sometimes I’ll do 2-6 weeks eating carbs but I have skin issues. When I eat more carbs my eczema breaks out. Keto makes my skin look better and for vanity sake I stick to it.

  • Can anyone help? Have been keto for 2 years but stopped gaining muscle and losing weight after a mere 2 months. Did my body just get used to it?

  • how long of a break would you take after a broken collarbone? I wanted to start riding the trainer after 1 week, but I think I should take longer.. The only month I took off was Feb in 2019.

  • I did keto for like three weeks, I lost a lot of weight but it kinda messed up my mentality when it comes to eating. Like I would rarely eat and I started only eating one time a day. Once I lost the weight I wanted to lose even more so I started eating less. Just yesterday I stopped keto, at least for now probably.

  • Considering the scientific fact that dairy causes cancer and oesteoporosis.. and eating dead animals is direct cause of cancer.. this is stupid advice!

  • Dylan, a question. In your other videos too, you mention to take at least one week break after the racing season. But now the weather is perfect for riding outside. We have another week or two before the rain season, and then the occasional snow will put the outside rides to an end. I don’t want to miss the fine weather but I also want to start preparing for the next season too. Is it OK to take this recommended break in the middle of the base plan, when the weather deteriorates?

  • Nice, balanced take. The big thing he’s attacking is about how Keto guys preach their diet as if it’s the only way to get lean, which really is annoying. Dr Berg makes some really really informative videos, but his advocation of Keto as the one true way is borders on the kind of lecturing you typically associate with religions.

  • I’m only doing keto to burn stubborn fat and lose excess water before a bodybuilding show this september if the shows are opening up again.
    But even on a high carb diet I can lose 10kg/22lbs within two months… but Keto is great for getting rid of stubborn fat in theory, so I will experiment with it after I’m around 12% bodyfat and I’m at that stage stubborn fat needs to be burnt.
    Yes I will lose some muscle volume, but that will go back after you carb load and pump up for a show.

    What I’m basically saying is: Keto is a short term diet for cosmetic reasons to me.

  • Thanks for this Dylan. 4 weeks ago I had a major crush injury to my right arm and I am still smack in the middle of recovering from that. I am currently limited to 20 minutes and <150 HRM of stationary bike time (which still bores me stupid). I should be allowed back on the real bike in about 4 weeks so, even though I wasn't highly trained to begin with, hopefully it shouldn't take too long to get back to my performance peak.

  • Hi Dylan, I have a question around recovery and or training stress.

    I did a long cycle 170km on Saturday morning, with only about 3 hours of sleep the night before.

    I was trying to keep heartrate in that zone 2 range, and managed to do that for the majority of the ride. But the momment I put down any sort of effort my heart rate shot from zone two to almost max effort.. then returned to zone 2..

    But it was almost as of my heart rate was increasing far too quickly for very little effort.

    Could this be a sign of anything? Like fatigue or possible sickness? My resting heartrate is normal and outside of a moderate effort my heart returned to the low range almost as fast as it increased..

    But I couldn’t add any extra effort without shooting heart rate from 120 to 185..

  • I am not one of those people who say that there is one diet that fits all; however, you have keto all wrong. Not sure who taught you the principles of keto. I don’t do dairy or focus on eating fats. I do use some extra virgin olive oil and that is it. No butter….etc. I am always in ketosis eating a whole food plant oriented diet.

    I eat at least 8 10 vegetables/fruit/nuts/seeds per day. Asparagus, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Spinach, Different types of Kale, Bok Choy, Chard, Arugula, Okra, Avocado (fruit), and on and on. Where are you getting this notion of no fiber or low fiber on a keto diet?

    Secondly, I eat quality meats…local grass-fed beef, local-grass-fed liver, pasture-raised eggs, pasture-raised chicken, wild-caught salmon, wild-caught cod, wild-caught sardines

    I focus on whole food, quality protein, and a variety of vegetables… things like DARK CHOCOLATE 90++ cacao

    I check my blood glucose and blood ketones daily and am always in deep ketosis. I monitor my GKI index for therapeutic levels. Studies are showing that Sugar/Glucose metabolism is causing major issues for some people who appear healthy. Your advice may be dangerous for some people.

    Just because I eliminate processed foods and sugary/starchy things does not make the diet bad. It keeps my insulin in check. I have no highs and lows. Are you suggesting that a person should not eliminate these foods?

    And, I don’t focus on eating fat. It is quite the contrary. Where are you getting that from? You are just not informed about all the ways that a person can do keto or the benefits.

    All of my metabolic markers have improved

    And no I was not overweight or unhealthy prior to the diet. The diet improves things like inflammation.

    It is not for everyone. But your perception of this high-fat approach to keto with eliminating quality Whole Foods is just wrong

    Lastly, I eat well and enjoy my food!!! I don’t feel restricted in any way. This diet has saved lives….literally. Look at Dr. Dale Bredesen’s research…

  • I’m so addicted to these videos. They’ve completely changed the way I look at the high fat/low carb, good diet/bad diet, train hard/train smart. I learn something more everytime I watch another one. Addicted. Also, I come here for the freeze frames

  • This is a great work out. I am pre. Woke up at 109. I found and tried video this morning. After I paused at 20 min mark it was 157. It’s never been that high level. I thought maybe a mistake. By the time I finished it was 114. Is there any meaning to that shift now that I am aware that I am pre and it “can be reversed”? I am determined to beat this.

  • Hi guys! I will be 65 years old this summer and I truly don’t want to feel my age more than is necessary. I consider myself a fitscript champion cause I have worked my way up to Total Body Exercise Level 2 along with chair strength training with the dumbbells along with yoga three times a week faithfully. I have been following you guys over a year and have experienced a marked improvement in my quality of life. I am so grateful for the ease and flow of your routines Charlie and look forward to try new ones as I improve. I see that you guys have tee shirts with the glucosezone logo on them. Is there anyway I can purchase a tee shirt for myself? Once again, keep helping those of us who have experienced limited mobility and have made a change. Thanx!

  • Dylan, slightly off topic, but my question is “why do cyclist feel the need to ride 160km in preperation for a 160km event?” Like I am an ex runner and have completed several marathons, however in running as part of your training you never run the full distance, maybe only 20/22 miles max would be advised. I have only been road cycling for a year but the feeling I get is that I have to do huge kms in training. We are entering to finish not race.. We are doing a lot of 80,90 and 110 km with the occasional 120-30km but nothing longer.. Interested in your thoughts.

  • Only use keto for first 2 weeks at the beginning of a diet so your body learns to use fat as an energy source and get that initial weight loss off the jump from water weight and a bit of fat.
    Fibre isn’t an issue…take fibre supp or eat food high in fibre, like most the veggies you can eat on keto.

  • I did Keto for fun for 6 days straight. 2,5 kligorams (I know it was mostly water). Athletic posture, not that much fat. The best feeling was a flat belly and freaking veins on my arms. Lack of energy was a huge minus for a guy who works out almost every single day, sometimes twice a day.

  • Believe me.Keto is all fine and feeling good until you reach a point where you are moderately lean and need to eat ton of good low carb shit to mainatin muscle.At that point supplementing or regularly spending tons of money on quality food is the only way to continue.

  • I agree with conclusions presented here. And it is what has been concluded previously by many others, many times: “You can’t outrun a bad diet.” The subtitle might be “You can slightly improve metabolic health with exercise within the context of a bad diet.”

    Smarter conclusions:
    1. We need to start eating better quality food. (Healthy fats, including saturated fat, and non-processed carbs).
    2. We need to incorporate some sort of fasting protocol into our lives.

    These two things are likely the only things that will have any impact on diabetes type II.

  • Dude your an ectomorph. You can eat a whole pizza a day by yourself and still have a six pack as long as u train. Keto is more for endomorphs, when it comes to dieting it is not one size fits all

  • The external shape and weight says nothing about your internal shape, your blood work. That said, if one is not constantly loading excessive amount of carbs just to maximize the performance or any other reason (pleasure) he is probably healthy enough.
    Keto diet sure burning water, but also burning fat much more effectively than other methods because of the ketosis.
    Performance I believe keto is mainly about the health, and not about performance. People sometime overvaluing their performance over their health causing them consuming some junk just for that. Please stop to do harm yourself just for performance. Prefer your health over performance. That said, while keto really can somewhat hurt the immidiate performance, being in ketosis actually benefit on a long exercise because you have constantly fat turning into ketones which provides constant energy even for prolonged periods, which is also eliminates the need of some energy/protein snacks in between.
    Muscles under keto diet your muscles will visually look smaller, but that’s related to the water loss, and not directly related to the loss of power. Again, prefer your health over your lookings.
    Sustainability not everyone can sustain a keto diet, but not necessarily for the reasons you think. The main concern is the variety of food allowed. If one is OK with the allowed food, then basically it can be more sustainable over other diets, because fat cause satiety much faster and for prolonged periods relative to carbs, it makes you to not eat as much and as frequent as in other carbs based diets. So one will eat less and all without additional hunger, thus it is much more sustainable.
    Carbs and Fiber are unnecessary for the human being. At this point this is science.
    Again, keto is mainly about the health. Not about the performance, not about the looking, and even not about the pleasure. It’s about eating for the nutritional value, it’s about the much better blood work and prevention of diabetes and all related diseases. Remember: loading excessive amount of carbs just to maximize the performance or looking or pleasure or any other reason can lead you to insuling resistence and then diseases even if you workout hard.

  • can you compensate the weight lose effect by taking more creatin(by this meaning more than 5 g a day) and drinking more than 5 Liter water per day?

  • Wow jeff
    Its a most informative video till date for me about all myths..
    But only now one question here…
    Is it true that fat loss speed is more in keto than low carb or low calorie diet??
    Not that first few days of water loss,i m talking abt speed after that water loss days

  • Lovely Video clip! Sorry for chiming in, I would love your thoughts. Have you considered Loowarn Inconceivable Desire (probably on Google)? It is an awesome exclusive guide for reversing diabetes type 2 minus the hard work. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my close friend Aubrey at last got excellent success with it.

  • Due to snow i dont ride for at least four months of the year but swap to running and gym workouts.
    Come spring i loose very little, and anything that has been lost comes back in a couple of weeks. In fact i often find that i am eventually quicker than the previous season.

  • Awesome.Not taking vacations or rest weeks seems to br very good for the performance on the first 2,3 months.Bit after thaf you start losing A LOT of performance and start sleeping bad,feeling tired,demotivated,etc

  • Hi..i am doing this exercise in the morning with empty stomach.
    On day 1 my sugar level is 107 before exercise & it raised up to 120 after exercise.i felt that i might be doing it wrongly.. but today my sugar level was 93 before exercise & it goes up at 105 after exercise..can you plz guide why sugar levels are going up after exercise..

  • Thanks! The science seems pretty clear about training breaks, makes me feel better about my 1 week ski trip end of march each year where my CTL takes a major kick in the nuts and i get a major guilt trip. At least i try to make it coincide with a recovery week. Truth is, it’s probably a good thing, but 7 days off the bike feels like an age.

  • I’m not sure but,if anyone else is searching for diabetes can be reversed try jadonite proven diabetes buddy (have aquick look on google cant remember the place now ) have heard some awesome things about it.

  • I wonder what Jeff thinks about the Golden Era bodybuilding diet of Low Carb High protein and high fat. Cause i would like to really try it!

  • This came up on my suggestions. I am going from fitness zero and aiming for ultra marathon rather than cycling but the title looked interesting so I started watching. Very interesting, useful information which I am sure is applicable to most sports.

  • If you have really high body fat, it’s definitely a good idea to cut out carbs. It’s not something you should make as a permanent life style though. It’s a great “diet” though, I get to eat plenty of steak, pork, chicken, eggs and cheese. I’ve cut a ton of weight doing it short term.

  • Hey Dylan. Been watching your videos and was wondering why you don’t sell structured plans directly on TrainingPeaks? I’m looking for a winter plan that incorporates strength training that I could use every winter. I’ve scoured the plans on TrainingPeaks and found a few that incorporate strength training. I prefer your lifts to the plans on TrainingPeaks. Would also prefer a structured plan to just follow using TrainingPeaks, Garmin, and Zwift.

  • Keto works for me. Been going strong for several years. I started it high fat but now I do high protein and moderate fat. I’ve tried going back to high carb lower fat diet and my body does not respond well. I’ve gained alot muscle and lost alot of fat. I think everyone is different. It depends on how our bodies work.

  • Typical keto dieter in the comment section: I have lost 150 pounds of fat and gained 300 pounds of muscle in one month…yet you never see before and after pictures.

  • My glucose level was 97 when I started. At first check, it went up to 112. At the end of the exercise, it went to 111. What shall I do? I am usually between 87-97.

  • I’ve keto dieted between this video starting until it finished when I stopped watching it. I’m in it for the long term. It’s another fad diet. Just eat in a normal way.

  • Brilliant video!
    Although I had swapped to keto and see lots of other benefits with it (mental focus, no hunger, feeling lighter and having more energy) I see the points. That said my diet is more like low carb, high protein and in / out of ketosis due to intermittent fasting and lots of exercise.:)

  • The thing about keto is at first your performance goes down but after your body adapts and becomes more efficient and storing and using the small amount of carbs you intake then your performance goes back up and endurance is increased.

  • Anecdotal, but I recently took a 9-day break except for 3, 30-minute super easy jogs. Those were more about maintaining the habit. I also relaxed my diet somewhat, but not to the point of becoming a glutton.

    My first day back I felt strong and had a significant improvement in strength and mental focus. Those gains have continued, although I will admit to being significantly more tired in the evenings than before going on vacation. I also realized two significant mistakes I was making. I can’t say if I noticed what I was doing incorrectly because I came in with a clear head, or because that was one of those “lightbulb” moments.

    So obviously not the 1 – 2 months that was discussed in this video, but in my sample size of 1, a short break does have a 100% correlation to improving performance. =P

  • I think, as an addendum to this video, there is a difference between a well formulated ketogenic diet and the stereotype of the Atkins diet. There are many forms of the ketogenic diet, but a well formulated diet does use fiber, all phytonutrients, etc, it’s not necessarily the fatty meats, eggs and bacon just no bread. There are also ways of using short term ketosis, IF, and longer term fasts, timing high carb meals which achieve the same benefits of long term ketosis, without some of the negatives.

  • Im 66 and was swimming 1200 meters 3x week and lifting weights two days per week along with mountain bike rides of a couple of hours. I had knee replacement surgery on Aug 22 and the on the other knee Oct. 22. Although I have lost over 35 lbs since Feb of this year my fitness level is now in the crapper. I know that when Im cleared to start back at the gym in a couple of weeks, its going to be hell. I guess the only positive will be that I havent gained any weight back following surgery. This video is helpful. I liked and subscribed.

  • Just so you know, I run all your videos as a playlist while I’m at work. I feel like a champ just listening, which leads me to my question: How much does watching/listening/being coached enhanced performance? It might seem like a stupid question, but my moral for training and MTB in general is much higher after “getting stoked” watching videos. #WWBHDD

  • Seems like it would be easier just to eat in a manner that doesn’t trigger a ton of insulin in your body. This way, you’re just trying to exercise off toxicity. Root cause people. Root cause.

  • 27 years old, lifelong type 2, beginning to experience kidney issues. This workout has given me energy i didn’t know I had left in me. Thank you.

  • This is the only video that got me motivated to do something about my diabetes. I started with this 30 min. program, and now I walk 80 min every single day. I am a senior. THANK YOU!

  • Am forever grateful to God for curing me from Diabetes type 1 after many years of finding a cure am ready to share this with anyone out there who he or she might also be thinking or believing no cure for Diabetes kindly email me [email protected]

  • Ahman. I agree with all,you said. I,get so tired hearing people reading how they read every diet book out there. I immediately think, yeA, fad diets. Then ask,them if they,had read so so many books on the subject, would any of them actually be an accidemic nutrition book? I then explain why read fad books that come and go, or will only hyper focus on a minute little and single aspect, which is narrower from a nutrition book. It you are willing to read so many books then go strait to the primary first hand resource, accidemic nutrition book. At least there you know everything you read is a gold nugget. It is packed full of gold nuggets. And, that is all it covers are a welth of gold nugets information to how to do that approach from a proper informed source.

    Some just go blank to such a simple statementm others will argue that will be too advanced and complicated for them to read. I,will ask them if they feel they,can read at a high school level. They will say yes. Then I point out, then what do you think freshmen classes at your university nutrition department is geared for as far as a persons reading ability. You guessed it, apperson who can read at an high school level. Hexk o have taken the course and read the bookm if you are in middle school, you should be able to read, understand and fallow it. Heck, I would not doube the samexis true for when I was in elementry. It is not a hard resdm and all science fact based. If they wantctoclearnxhow,to eat, then go to the link of information, an actual nutrition accidemic book. Not one of those barns and noble book, bit an university book.

    Heck, I was doing that back when I first moved out to live on my own. I was working like crazy. Many,times 2 full time jobs. And, sometimes I would work 3 jobs at that time 2 full time and one part time. That was actually my high school graduation summer life. Right onto the work force, work, work, and more work. Back then I tried to fit in some collegem but, it did not work with me working so many jobs and so little sleep. I did not think I would ever go to college. But, there were many things I wanted to learn and understand. What did ilI do about it? Went to my university book store. Look at all the books they were selling for all the courdes they were teaching that semester. And, I would buy them to read. Heck,,at that time I hated reading. Vut, I was also hungry for answere to what and how to do something. I was not even your best reader at the time. I have two learning disabilities, and went through public school when they did not accommodate people with learning disabilities. With being dylecix and ADHD, attention deficit hyperactive disorder. Yep, a,double dose. It was just assumed i,was doing bad in school because of that which also in turned me into hating reading. Though I read these books anyways. Actually read them for enjoyment. I 1st tikexin my life,, I earned to enjoy reading. Later I was able to go to college, and ended up getting degree in those subjects I enjoyed tlreading so much.

    So, if I say i could have very likely read those books in elementary school. And, have no problem understanding the accidemic books with 2 learning disability, there is a good chance you could do the same.So, dont use the excuse that you think it will be too complicated and difficult for you to read, just think of all the time you had waisted with reading fad diet books vs. an actual book on the sucject.

  • Keto works in short bursts (2-3 months). That’s what im doing now, after covid19, i went from 18% BF to 15% in 1.5 months, as a 30y old man with NO exercise whatsoever

  • I’m not the keto zealot, but could you offer an explanation how did I get wast improvement in strength and endurance (especially vo2 max) results when I’ve eliminated carbs along side with the same results with some of my atheltes?

    I’m a kinesiologist from Croatia and I’ve been thought the same thing in school, but it seems that in my gym there are some people that do MUCH better on meat or keto diets in regards to sports training and results. And it baffles me. Especially because one is soccer player, other soccer goalkeeper, third rower and fourth powerlifter.
    Its interesting because in one example one athlete initially did 500m row in 1:41 and afters switching to meat diet did 1:19 in a span of 6 weeks. When I’ve seen that some people do very well I’ve decided to try it out and had similar results.

  • So i wasn’t crazy all these years… phew!!!

    Not even racing or anything but after 1 to 2 weeks off riding i noticed an increase of “power” on the first 2 to 3 rides after that break… but never had prove nor did i really care:p

  • HIIT when done at very high intensity will raise insulin. As valuable as HIIT can be, in the context of T2D, I think making a more strategic choice of the style of HIIT would be wise, i.e. for T2D patients find a style of HIIT that doesn’t raise insulin.

  • How about gaining weight while cycling? I know most people are trying to lose weight to be their ideal race/cycling weight. But some people just are under their ideal weight which is probably uncommon?

  • In summer I had a 5 week holiday/break but after it only took me one week to get my endurance back and five weeks to get an improvement on my FTP (246-250 both at 53.5kg)
    (I’m a 17 year old junior however so my natural development meaby helped a bit)
    keep up these great informative/scientific videos

  • Love your info X.
    But their is a rite way and wrong way to do anything, if your not getting enough fiber on keto you need to do more research. And get more veggies in your keto diet, Your not eating rite.
    Gluconeogenesis your body will make glycogen when it needs to.
    I personally am adding weight to my lifts regularly, and my preferred work outs are heavy lifts 2-3 sets 8-15 reps 3-4 times a week 1.5 hours average hardly any cardio.
    But like you said in previous vids I love my diet and can see doing it forever.

  • I’ve been on Keto for 6 yrs, and my penis went from 5 inches to 9 inches. Pretty girls ask for my ph# all the time. And my salary tripled within 4 months

  • Regarding the data around 8;00, these are the conclusions I would draw…
    1. The body doesn’t NEED to be in a “fed state” in order to do exercise. Blood glucose is easily increased during intense, or even moderate, activity in a fasted state. (try this on yourself with a glucose monitor).
    2. When people do exercise in a “fed state,” the body will focus on reducing serum glucose if it is too high (because it is toxic). Biology is smarter than we give it credit for.

    3. We need to redefine what a “fed state” means. We need to make a distinction between “fed state” (having just eaten a meal in the hour or two previously) versus “energy loaded state” (having ample liver and muscle glycogen available due to consistent and ample food intake)
    This latter distinction is the state of virtually everyone in the western world.

    One further comment: This all serves to highlight the inadequacy of the energy balance model (the implication to arbitrarily burn off excess energy consumed) in application to animals. This industrial propaganda needs to be exposed for the mind-control deception it is.

  • Thanks for another great video. I would be interested in hearing about training for a high altitude race. I plan on riding the Breck 100 this year. Curious about how much training close to event altitude should be done and how fast you lose the acclimation.

  • I am 75 years old and these exercises are perfect for me. But I am on blood thinners does exercise effect blood thinners I go have it checked once a month but I jusr started these exercises thank god for youtube thank you for putting it here on youtube.

  • Wrong: about keto, you can build muscle on a low carb diet because protein burns like sugar in the body (50% of it will turn into sugar for the 20% of the cells in your body that cannot use ketones (what is produced from fat) for energy )

    And humans only recently are eating carbohydrates including fruit, out ancestors ate fat and meat not carbs, it’s true that carbs are anabolic but they come at a heavy price because they trigger too much insulin, which creates immflamation and can damage arteries.

    Right: keto is not the only way, correct.BUT it is the easiest and healthiest way, those carbohydrates have antinutrients like lectins,gluten,oxalates, and so on and so forth which also haven’t been studied extensively likeyou say about keto studies.If you look at the major food alergens list, many of them are vegetables.

    Personally what I agree with: paleo keto is the best way, where the only vegetables in your diet are things like coconut oil.This will help you have strong muscles,lots of energy.

    Also one last thing: Water is stored in your body in excess when eating carbohydrates, think of all the good it will do to your body and kidneys by lifting a heavy burnden.

    Elimination diets are the best way to go for people that have health problems and many people do.We will have more type 2 diabetics soon per amount of population, than we ever had before (i am talking about ratio here and it doesn’t matter if world population has gone up).

    The only reason WHY YOU don’t have diabetes 2 yet, is because you burn all the sugar in your muscles, but eat sugar and skip a week of workout and you will start getting insulin resistant and get non alcoholic fatty liver, which you won’t be able to solve after a certain age unless you go low carb.

    In human evolution people were hunters not carb farmers!

    Have a look at this guy:, bigger size than you and eats keto.

  • Technically, a Ketogenic diet is any diet that puts your body in to a state of nutritional ketosis. After much trial and error I’ve discovered I’m essentially carbohydrate intolerant, making Keto a good fit for me.

  • It’s gr8 to follow the routine. I have brought my glucose level from 612 (Post Lunch) to 119. Medicines also aided this reduction. This was achieved in mere 30 days. Now medicines also have been halved.

  • I’m on keto and I won’t reintroduce carbs until I’m able to afford a nutrition program like WildFit or Athlean-X that tells me how to do things in the right way.

  • Hello Sir, I hope you are fine, can you please tell me any exercise to lower my Cholesterol, I am really very worried about it, since the last 2 days I have started going for a long walk, I want to do exercise also please… need your expert guidance. Thank you once again. God Bless You

  • great, great exercise I just knew today. I wish I ‘d known it long before. As instructed, I measured my blood sugar level. It was 144. After completing the whole 40 min exercise, my blood sugar level was 103! Unbelievable! Thanks so much. I’ll do it daily from now.

  • Hey guys I’m trying to gain HEALTHY weight I work out 6 days a week for 1 hour at high reps. I weigh 157 pounds and 5’10 If use this diet but keep my 3188 calories a day will I start to see more definition in my body? Also will I continue to gain weight which is my goal as well

  • The Keto Diet has changed my entire life, I’ve been 3 months with this diet and with a supplement that has helped me a lot, I have lost already 30lbs, in 31 days. This is a dream come true, I mean it!

  • All I know is I did keto for a few months and got more shredded than I’ve ever been in my life. What I found out though is that I had to eat a lot of protein (like more than I expected), and workout EXPLOSIVELY! But I have horrible genetics.

  • I have discovered sustainable Keto during this lockdown, was expecting to have loads of micro aggressions after watching this video but honestly you’ve made some great general arguments. I too have questions on the efficacy of keto for muscle gain, I know it coupled with IF and OMAD during a cut period is anecdotally incredible if you can make it sustainable. Im sure you don’t subscribe to all those buzz word techniques I mentioned but as you said with Your best point… ‘If it works great’. Ultimately we are all experts on our own bodies, some people just experiment more, some people react differently and at the end of the day when I’m in the gym bulking I happen to eat very similarly to you as I have seen from your in-kitchen videos, common sense should prevail regardless of your Macro breakdown keeping our overall diet clean and non processed is always your best diet no matter what your macros or goals are. One thing I know you beat me for if your gym work rate! I’m not always your biggest fan as you’re blunt and maybe a little aggressive when using clickbaity… but as I said I can never fault your workrate or genuine passion for good health ����

  • I used Keto but definitely can say it’s more of a time frame diet unless you prefer to limit carbs every other day is sustainable once you hit the body fat level you want. IF is easy long term if you pick the window you prefer

  • A great gift on my birthday _ this video is! Thanks Andy
    My favorite part as a High High Protein proponent was Andy stating excess protein will most likely be excreted! @ 2:44

  • I would only ask people who “doubled muscle mass” in one year of keto diet and who writes similar things in comments: just explain how you did it with just 20% of protein calories daily? What a fantastic, I would say incredible results you have! Keto is just a fat burning diet with results of light regular aerobic and normal balanced food. It’s not a magic tablet. And it has it’s price. Just eat balanced food daily and start walking couple miles, for beginning, and you’ll change your life forever.

  • hello Sir, I was having 10.8 sugar level just after 2 hours of a meal, then I started to do your level 1 diabetes exercise and when I checked in the middle of your teaching exercise it was amazingly decreased to 8.1, thank you very much for the help and support and the best teachings… love you Sir

  • Dylan your advice on block training saw me get stronger than ever at the end of this season. My previous best 20min was 390w (2015) I managed 388w but backed that up my 383w in a 2×20 workout about weeks ago. And I was comfortably doing threshold intervals at 370w with my expected average and max hr as well as perceived exertions.

    I’ve just taken a first full week off.
    But now the weather has turned (Rain and 4-7C aaaallll week) and it’s bound to get worse (west coast of norway), and now I’ve totally lost all motivation to get back into it ��
    I’ve ridden over 17000km/630hrs so far this year so maybe that has something to do with it.

    So this video is perfectly timed for me!!! I think I’ll just take this week off too and hope it’s a. It drier next week ��

  • After completing my first 32h event last October I took a complete break from training that was supposed to last about a month, but due to a vacation and the holiday season became closer to two months. I lost quite a bit of VO2max, but started a 16 week training schedule again to be ready for a 9h event in March. I actually feel stronger now than I did in October, so I guess my near-two-month rest did me well.

  • I’ve not a great taste for fatty food with the exception of a juicy grass fed steak. Bacon e.g. is not a thing to me. On contrary, starches make me feel satiated and taste good without fats, a cup of white rice is very tasty to me. Every time I tried keto, and I mean 6 months minimum, I felt crap. Ate a lot never being satited no matter the veggies (or not). The longer I could is the carnivore way, since I loooove meat. Nevertheless on the long (1.5y +) it made me lose energy and, as keto, made me fatter. I still can’t understand all these people saying they lost fat and gained muscles. Maybe if you are obese as starting point, or there are genetic differences?

  • i feel like low carb is good because of how sustainable it is. It plays a lot into hormone regulation, but essentially your energy levels stay high though out the day, you dont get those crashes or sugar cravings, and its the only time i have been able to let myself eat as much as i feel like, and not get fat, because my body feels satieted and hormonally my body is regulated hunger well.

  • Im not sure it was mentioned as to how long it would take to get your fitness back to when you previously had stopped. So from what i understood from many years ago, was that for every week off it will take you 3 weeks to get back to the same fitness level. Does that sound about right? if not what do you think the timeline is approximately?

  • These videos are just so fantastic and you are an excellent communicator. Thanks for the content. If I decide I need a coach, I am definitely of a fan of how and what kind of content you put out; its good stuff!

  • Detraoning during the winter. I inadvertently did that this past winter and I’ve been riding much stronger this summer than I did at any point the past two summers. Once I started back up I started by just riding at low intensity for longer periods. After a few weeks of those types of rides I started picking up the intensity and the gains have been amazing. Again, I somehow managed to do this all by accident and it seems to have worked like a charm. The info you provided here seems to only reinforce what I thought to be true. Thanks for putting together another great science-based video. Keep up the great work. I really appreciate/enjoy them.

  • I watch Dr Berg and he says carbs negativity towards the brain, the skin, the muscle, the hair. Then I’m like okay. But then I watch athlean x dude and he looks awesome and sounds mentally sharp idfk anymore what to believe…it’s really confusing and discouraging to not know what direction to take, nevermind the discipline…

  • I sort of follow the keto diet. Lots of fat and protein and a moderate amount of carbs. I also take a plant based vitamin supplement and a variety of herbal tonics. My key focus is to concentrate on nutritional density and calories. The more the merrier as I have a high metabolism, even at 60. I just call it keto as it’s closest to what I do. No one’s the same, so no diet works for all. But nutrition and calories still matter.

  • Just to be clear regarding volume and intensity, if you ride 5 days a week with 4 of the days are 1-hour ride (2 days of HIIT) and the 5th day is a 3-hour long endurance ride. So reducing volume means perhaps just 1 day of HIIT and a 3-hour long endurance ride for the week?

  • I had about 2 weeks of minimal, almost zero riding. Then started up again. I came back within 3 rides to setting many PRs on trails I have ridden a lot over the last several years. I even got a few trophies and a KOM I have been chasing on Strava. I had lots of rides over the last few weeks on the same trails where I rode well but no PRs or 2nd Or 3rd bests due to have ridden them so much. Go ahead, take a break, indulge (a little) and come back stronger and fitter.
    Your body will thank you for it.

  • For Starters I was keeping up with the lady on the right. Now I am keeping up with the Lady on the left. I’ve lost 13 pounds. Blood sugar in the mornings average in the mid to upper 90’s and mostly low 100’s. I started playing my own music with the video and mute the sound on the video because music motivates.

  • As a senior cyclist, my strength training takes priority over bike training when time crunched because of the effects in daily living. It’s worked well for me because times in three recent race were faster than those of last year. I still have plenty of room for improvement, lol, but nice to see incremental ones to fuel the motivation. Always enjoy your videos ��

  • i’ve been doing keto for about 1 week but i can see myself doing keto diet for life. all i can say is that my head feel more focused or better mentally.I used to have headache all the time but when i enter keto diet it all gone. I eat less but feel more full. not sure if it gonna maximize muscle gain because i do feel my workout not as intense as when i am in normal diet.

  • my sugar level is 6.3 every morning i am prediabetes i have been trying this exercise from 4 days but there is no change in my sugar level what should i do?? can u give me suggestion please??i would be so grateful

  • I like to use a general 1% rule: you lose about 1% of your fitness per day. I also apply it to weight loss where your hillclimbing times are 1% faster per pound of body fat lost.

  • Hey, i like this gulose exercise,especially design for diabetes, thanks family for this excerise! It off the chains!������♒♻♎◻��〰������������〰◻����〰��〰

  • I did a recovery week three weeks ago, performing only three days of low zone 2. I lost so much of my fitness that I’m still trying to claw my way back to racing form. I will never, and I repeat NEVER, do another recovery week. Next time when the legs are fatigued, I’ll give them a few days off or light duty, then it’s right back to the intensity. This same thing happened a year or so ago when I attempted one of these so-called “recovery” weeks.

  • Kudos for the video content! Excuse me for the intrusion, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you heard the talk about Patlarny Sugar Outcome Principle (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a smashing exclusive guide for reversing diabetes minus the normal expense. Ive heard some decent things about it and my friend after a lifetime of fighting got astronomical success with it.

  • The older I get, I feel like the easier it is for me to lose fitness when I take time off. I suffered massive burnout this year after a 130-mile gravel race and took 2 months off, while still doing 30-40 miles of easy commuting / week. When I got back on, my FTP had dropped over 30%, possibly more because I did not test. Also I gained 12 pounds. Fortunately I’m back to baseline after 3 months of consistent base and I’m aiming to kill it next race season!

  • I think his main point is true, you have to be able to stick with it. However there are a lot of misconceptions about Keto. First it is NOT easy to start keto, first week or month you will be craving bread and carbs sweets etc like you’re starving even when you’re filled with steak and butter. Second, only the first phase of the diet is 5% carbs 20% protein 80% fat, and yes you will lose muscle, but long term you can increase your carbs a bit and protein significantly. Long term it actually does have muscle sparing effects since you’re body is more geared to burn it’s own fat rather than muscle. One thing I never hear anyone mention is that bodybuilders and athletes can eat more carbs and protein on the keto diet than sedentary people. If a bodybuilder burns 100 more carbs per day for energy and 100 more grams of protein for rebuilding muscle, then ad that to the Keto diet and what’s left over is the same equation you started with in the first place, plain keto diet.

  • I am a hobby MTB rider from Bulgaria. I enter a hobby races during the season in the hobby category and usually place in the top 10%. Riding hard a few months before the events feels doable at the beginning, but towards the end my motivation starts to drop a lot. A classic case of burnout I think. As a hobby cyclist I can afford to take brakes off the bike more often and for longer without any consequences. After a longer break getting back on the bike feels so refreshing. Its like discovering the passion for riding all over again. I used to feel guilty when not riding for a few weeks, but it looks like even the pros do it and I guess the human body and psychology need a rest as well.

  • I’m pre-diabetic and my weight is always from 92 lbs to 94 lbs and I never take diabetic test at home but I like your exercise because it help my muscles. I felt better after I did this exercise. I have to take a few minutes at half way because I felt tired. Thank you very much. I will follow your exercise everyday or every other day because I’m lazy.

  • Just ate a pound of butter and drank a litre of cream..Keto is great! Although my heart has stopped beating and I can’t feel my legs, I’m sure it’ll be fine with more fat��

  • Wonder why I can’t get rid of this dawn phenomenon…. it’s making me crazy and it’s actually gotten worse. This morning 109 and my blood work from last labs my A1C went from 5.7 to 5.4

  • I used Keto as a hack for first 20lbs. then transitioned into a low carb ‘lifestyle’. I have lost 40lbs. and kept it off for 3 years.

  • 2:20 in you lifted up your shirt and showed your abs. I know you advocate for a balanced macro/micro sustainable eating plan, but beyond appearance and considering health more than striations or inflammation more than muscle belly fullness, do you still think that a higher carb intake is as healthy for a person past the desire of simply trying to look lean?

  • I’ve had 3 months off at the start of the year (fractured tibia) then 12 weeks of training then got a bone contusion with another 6 weeks off. I’ve had another 12 weeks back on the bike. Do you think it would be necessary to take a break at all before the end of the year? I was most likely going to leave it until early in the season next year.

  • Jeff I agree with your main point on individually finding the right diet, but you didn’t mention by far the most profound benefit of the Keto diet (or what Keto theories probably most commonly lead to a low carb approach combined with Intermittent Fasting), and that is overcoming Insulin Resistance, redefining Insulin Sensitivity, and ultimately providing the means to cure Type 2 Diabetes. Overcoming and defeating Type 2 diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease is one hell of a golden bullet. But don’t take my word, Dr Jason Fung has the clinical experience and the facts if anyone is interested.

  • This is glorious, been searching for “diabetes 2 cure” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Diyenry Subjective Dominance (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now )? It is a great one of a kind product for discovering how to get rid of type two diabetes without the hard work. Ive heard some great things about it and my buddy got cool success with it.

  • True that. If don’t have anything to compare your energy level but except when you were fat, of course yo gonna feel better. Great explanation.

  • Hey Dylan, a couple questions about the topics covered in this video. I recently injured my knee in a crash and was forced to take it easy for 3 weeks, but somehow managed to ride in my goal event (Pittsburgh Dirty Dozen) without any pain. At one point, I took 5 days completely off. I have definitely noticed increased heart rates for given RPE. Does this also apply to max HR? I clocked a new max HR by 2bpm while going for a Strava segment yesterday.
    Additionally, do you think I should still take a full week off now that my off season is beginning, given the detraining that I was just forced to do?

    Thanks for the wonderful information that you give away for free every week!
