There is controversy in the scientific and popular communities about the effects of the ketogenic diet on performance.

The reported benefits of a ketogenic diet for athletes are:

  • You can go for longer. The increased ability to burn fat during exercise gives you larger fuel reserves.
  • You recover faster post-workout.
  • Improved body composition.
  • Greater well-being and less inflammation.

Why nutritional ketosis might detriment athletic performance:

  • Some studies have reported a reduced ability to perform high-intensity exercise.
  • Feelings of subjectively lower energy.
  • Decrease in exercise efficiency.
