Prof Tim Noakes on the Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) Diet – Run Talk SA Episode 12

Prof Tim NoakesFor the first time on Run Talk SA we have only featured one guest on an episode. This week Brad caught up with Professor Time Noakes from the Sports Science Institute of South Africa in Cape Town. The Prof’s theories on the Low Carbohydrate High Fat (LCHF) Diet have been the talking point of many a radio interview, magazine article and dinner table discussion over the last few months.

On the show this week, amongst other things, we asked Prof Time Noakes:

  • What is the Low Carb High Fat Diet?
  • What is his take on the Sports Supplement industry? Is it necessary or is it a waste of time and money?
  • Would Bruce Fordyce have been able to win the Comrades Marathon on the LCHF Diet?
  • Could someone like Chris Froome, who won the 2013 Tour de France, perform as he has on the LCHF Diet?
  • Why do some people lose more weight than others on the HFLC Diet? And does exercise have a role to play in the weight loss?
  • Is Ketone Adaption safe and if so is it sustainable?
  • What is the Central Governor Theory and can you bypass your brain?
  • Does the LCHF Diet affect your cholesterol negatively?
