I rarely devote posts to just a shout out anymore, but I'm going to make an exception here for Anthony Colpo who has weighed in on Tim Olson "Low Carb Athlete".
This dovetails nicely on my recent post on Olson: Fat Burning Beast?
We learn a few more details on Olson's habitual diet that includes lots of fruit, "cheating" on sushi, carbs like sweet potatoes before runs, etc.
AC calls out Phinney's outright dishonesty in more forthright manner than did I. But as more details came out, I think AC went easy on Phinney. Riddle me this. Is there an evil rotten vegan athlete out there who claims to compete on their diet yet is secretly downing pounds of bacon before races and picking up pats of butter at race aid stations? Not to my knowledge. VLC stands for Very Low Credibility, apparently. Don't give me all the good they do as an excuse for blatant dishonesty.
