Ashley Ball, PharmD Candidate, LECOM-School of Pharmacy, put together a great article on the comparative benefits of low carb vs. high carb intake to maximize athletic performance. She brings to the forefront the need to individualize a food plan based on the activity and duration. What is very interesting is how this information can be used with our diabetes patients to improve outcomes for them as well.

I know we have probably had 100 or more articles on these topics, and the results seem to be all over the place. I shared this article with Dr. Sheri Colberg, and her analysis is right below the article.


I am going to try some of the recommendations this weekend while cycling and will give my impressions next week. I might even close both my eyes so it can be a “double blinded” study.



We can make a difference!
