Default Low Carb Diet propelled Chris Froome to (now four) Tour De France titles

Chris Froome wins fourth title:

Article from last year:

British cyclist Chris Froome won his third Tour de France on Sunday, and a key part of his preparation was eating a low-carb diet.
In fact, Froome insists that it was adopting a low-carb diet in 2012 that helped launch his cycling career. He now eats a protein-based diet, but despite profoundly reducing his carbohydrate intake, he has not lost any muscle.

Regular readers of our site will be aware of the benefits a low-carb diet can have, particularly for people with diabetes. These include weight loss, better blood glucose levels and, in some cases, a reduced dependency on medication.

Another story from last year in Business Insider with diet details.

Shocker! NOT!

I'm sure none of us are the least bit surprised that he's maintained his muscle mass - he's probably even built a good bit of muscle eating LC, combined with all the cycling.

Keto-doping and possibly using "Vespa?" In any case, natural doping or not, this victory will turn some heads in the carb-loading sports world.
Well done! **
