Atkins Diet: Myth of Carb-loading

Exercise & Low Carb (Part 2)
or Can you be a marathoner while doing low carb?

I am convinced that you certainly can be. My current estimate or goal for my half marathon in two weeks is to be sub two hours. I know other marathoners (both half and full) doing Atkins, and I am attempting to prove myself to be another one. The scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals were actually quite interesting and as far as I can tell NOT disputed by any other researchers.

Here are links to the documents:

Real life anecdotes are nice, but having science and published reports to back you up legitimizes what I have saying all along. Once you get acclimated to burning fat you no longer live under the same dread of bonking or running out of glycogen during your exercise.
