There’s no disputing LeBron James performance and energy, his well documented Low-Carb, High-Fat diet is evidence to the fact that fat is the perfect performance enhancing fuel for maintaining stamina in sports of duration.
Kobe Bryant Eats High-Fat and Low-Carb to Give Him a Performance Enhancing Edge of Constant Energy Over His Opponents
(Australians) The Parramatta Eels Rugby League Team, Australian Cricketer Shane Watson all Eat Low-Carb, High-Fat Diets.
There is no doubting Rugby League is one of the most physically punishing and demanding sports on the planet so a player needs as much strength and power as he can get with energy to fuel it for 80 grueling minutes. The performance enhancing effect that the energy from fats gives players through a game seems an unfair advantage.
The Parramatta Eels are one of the 16 Teams in the world’s top competition, the Australian NRL (there is one New Zealand Team as well). So when one of the game’s statesmen, the highly respected Tim Mannah speaks, people tend to listen.
Quoting Tim Mannah, Captain of the Parramatta Eels.
Even in terms of preparing for a game you used to get encouraged to carb load and eat your bowls of pasta,” Mannah said. “I used to eat loads of pasta, toast and everything in the lead-up to a game. We’re getting taught now that is the wrong thing to do. Eating a steak the night before and eating an omelette in the morning – it is funny how we have been taught one thing your whole career thinking that is right. I started doing it last year and I felt better last year. I feel even better now.
