“I’ve been hearing a lot about this diet called the Anabolic diet. Have you heard of this diet? Body builders seem to use it because the diet is based on low calorie dense foods that fill your stomach while keeping you in a calorie deficit. So it’s mostly good healthy food, but has a low emphasis on fat, and they find a lot of low calorie replacements for traditional foods. My question is this, could this type of diet be useful to long distance runners? Especially those who are trying to lean up a bit for faster times. Secondary question. Can you talk about the differences between what happens to a runner’s metabolism and a weight-lifter’s metabolism?” -Stephen
