Athlete Scenario: I'm an ultramarathon runner and recently heard from fellow runners that I should eat a low-carbohydrate, high-fat "ketogenic" diet to avoid "hitting the wall." In the past, I've been told to focus on eating more carbohydrates, especially before competition. What’s the best way to fuel for my race?
