Keto for Runners
Most of the appeal of the keto diet is the effect on body weight. Losing excess body fat could be beneficial for health as well as performance in certain sports. For example, weight reduction may be an advantage if you are looking to be lighter as a runner, or during distance cycling events as you will have less load to transport over a given distance.
Since those on keto report less hunger, this diet could benefit people in weight class sports like fitness competitions, rowing and MMA, who need to lean up without feeling like they're restricting themselves.
