The Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa

Keto anyone?

Has anyone done Ragbrai fully (or almost) in ketosis? I’ve done all my previous rides on carbs and am planning on riding on fat in 2019 (with a bit of liquid carbs on the side…)

Any observations? Thought? Experiences? Suggestions?

It should work for you, I guess. Just carbs might be better, if you only can choose one. I eat mainly carbs and fat on RAGBRAI, plus a can of tuna & 1/2 gallon of orange juice, per day. . I avoid those cuts of pork & vegetable fiber. Not because I’m a fanatic about diet, but because you really just need the readily digestible foods that are rich in calories, and hydration. Fat is just harder for me to digest, than carbs.
