You're not making sense. Human performance has improved significantly in the past 100 years through improved training and nutrition. Your claim essentially is that humans performed better 10,000 years ago. In direct conflict of what we have learned but if it makes you happy, go for it.yea well before we learned how to farm we all ate a keto/paleo diet.
and humans had enough energy to run from the dinosaurs so there is that
Think of it like lactose intolerance, possibly not as bad; many (most?) people who go a long time without drinking milk, find themselves sensitive to it when they resume consumption; the actual symptoms may vary depending on the individual, the specifics, and the quantity, and cover a range, from bloating, gas, or discomfort, to pain and diarrhea.^what do you mean "making consumption of generous amounts of carbs, less ...trouble-free,"
I think that's a pop myth. National Geographic magazine periodically profiles "modern" hunter-gatherer societies, eg tribes in the Amazon. It's clear that getting animal protein is a special treat for them. Successful animal kills are rare. Much of their diet is plant-based carbs, as it is for modern kenyan distance runners.yea well before we learned how to farm we all ate a keto/paleo diet. ...
Don't forget that the fat you wear can also come from the carbs/sugars you eat. They (excess) get transformed into lipids. Primarily by the liver. Biology 102.the fat you eat is the fat you wear.
Firstly, to start off, Eskimos have certain adaptations such as enlarged liver and enlarged kidneys to help them cope with the large amount of meat and fat they eat. If you do not have these adaptations, then you can forget about eating like an Eskimos and expect to stay alive long.I think that's a pop myth.

One modern exception are the far-northern indigenous peoples, whose diet can be predominantly seals -- an extremely fatty animal. You don't see any Inuit tribespeople among elite distance runners ;-)
Eat excess of anything, you will get fatDon't forget that the fat you wear can also come from the carbs/sugars you eat. They (excess) get transformed into lipids. Primarily by the liver. Biology 102.
dude, good that you gave it up. Forget the ketogenic diet, their research and studies are mostly funded by the meat and dairy industry. The government no longer fund such diet studies because these studies have been done so much in the past (shame that most of us are conditioned to think that past studies are worthless studies) that the results are unequivocal: a high carb (not to be confused with process sugar), high fiber diet, is the way to do.Well after 4 weeks of keto or trying to do keto I am having second thoughts. I am a little lazy in the macro-nutrient tracking thing. So I don't have any data to pass on but I met my macros and kept my carbs to 20gr a day.
What I found is that I had no energy on the bike, the flats were ok but I died on the hills. This maybe attributed to the "keto flu" or the time when your body is transitioning from a carb energy source to a fat energy force I don't know or maybe I just wasn't consuming enough calories over all. From what I have read to transition into full keto could take 1 to 4 months and I just don't have time for that.
I believe that both sides of the keto debate have solid arguments to affirm their position. There are many stories of athletes using keto and performing well though they will admit that their anaerobic high intensity output is compromised some. Dave Scott the triathlete uses keto.
But the bottom line for me is that there is not enough benefit for such a drastic lifestyle change. I will try a hybrid keto plan kind of along the lines of what Team Sky is doing. They limit carbs when they can but use carbs on the bike. It is a little easier for the team members because they have a chef and a nutritionist to do the thinking for their diet.
But there is something to this keto thing the science is there to confirm the advantages. We have not heard the last of this debate by a long shot and I predict that some pro teams will be using some form of a keto nutritional program.
TL/DNR: To much trouble, I missed eating carbs
