Research over the past 20 years has suggested that strategically reducing carbohydrate (CHO) availability during an athlete’s training can modify the metabolic responses to training in a more favorable manner compared with the traditional recommendations of maintaining a chronic high-CHO diet. Several methods have been explored to manipulate CHO availability and include low-carb, high-fat diets; performing twice daily training without glycogen restoration between sessions; and a “sleep-low” approach entailing a glycogen-depleting session in the evening without consuming CHO until after a morning training session performed in an overnight fasted state. Each of these methods can confer beneficial metabolic adaptations for the endurance athlete, including increases in mitochondrial enzyme activity, mitochondrial content, and rates of fat oxidation.
