BBC TV – The Truth About Food – Why does a high carb diet keep you going for longer?

Two Groups of identical twins are fed on a low and high carb diet to see how it effects their performance. Part of the testing includes a 35km ride across the Isle – Wight Cycle Hire provided the bikes, they required a good clean after this! On a nice day it would be a challenge but on this day it was hell..high winds and driving rain made the ride virtually impossible. You can watch the video on the BBC website. Follow the link and select “Why does a high carb diet keep you going for longer”? It’s the very last video on the list.
