Talk of eating low carb high fat (LCHF) for enhanced performance is on the up, as is opting to go gluten free.

The jury is still out on whether LCHF is good for athletic performance, but some research is finding that eating LCHF results in weight loss, increased and better-sustained energy levels and improved sleep.

This happens when eating LCHF, as it is thought make your body become ‘fat adapted’ which means the body begins using fat as its main energy source after carbs are restricted.

Choosing to eat LCHF can pose questions about which foods to eat and which to avoid. Sandwiches are off limits but if the thought depresses you; don’t worry as Gerry’s Wraps does a Go Low Carb wrap that is tasty and satisfying.
