    I’m struggling with this one. In our sport, there our so many outliers to the first idea of “eat everything.” Sage, Tim Olson, Scott Jurek, Elle Greenwood, Mike Wardian, Zach Bitter, Yassine. Also, I’m pondering whether commonalties can really be linked to performance in that way. For example, If we surveyed what music elites listened to, is it fair to draw conclusions about certain bands relation to performance?

      nice points. I think you need to find out what works for YOU. Matt has very good data, but so do some other nutritionists that recommend a high-fat, low carb diet. Per Matt’s earlier book, “Diet Cults”, you need to customize what works for you and quit preaching that your diet is the ONLY diet.
