Primal or Paleo Eating: Becoming a Keto-Adapted, Fat-Burning Endurance Athlete

I just read an interesting article on Mark's Daily Apple, about a couple who used to follow the 'healthy grains' carbo- and sugar-loading philosophy in their endurance training lives. Like many of us, they trained for many hours for triathlons, marathons and bike events, using grains and sugars to fuel these workouts, and like many of us, found they couldn't get out of the cycle of burning huge amounts of calories and eating them all again later, and then some. They found they not only didn't lose weight during the training season, but put it on 'effortlessly' during the off season.

Burning the Calories Before Refueling? Should we be Exercising in a Fasted State?

We've talked about the idea of bonk training before, and I don't claim to know a lot, but know I have done it. Often it was not "breakfast" time, but for various reasons it was still over 6 to 8 hours, sometimes more, since the previous meal. This might have been due to odd work hour schedules or preoccupation with all sorts of things, but sometimes I showed up at the park to skate in a fasted state.
