Chris Froom Quit Carbs, Lost 20 Pounds and Won the Tour de France – 3 Times!

Here's a true atomic bomb in the sports nutrition world.

Chris Froome, winner of Tour de France 2013, 2015 and 2016, now says that the winning concept was saying goodbye to most carbohydrates, and introducing more fatty protein such as salmon and eggs. By doing so, he lost 20 pounds, increased his power to weight-ratio and started winning.

Business Insider: After Chris Froome Cut Back on Carbs for More Protein, He Lost 20 Pounds, Started Winning the Tour de France, and Became A Millionaire

It's quite funny that there are still many people who think that you need to load up on carbs to exercise at all. This is just a great example showing that that simply isn't true.

If reducing carb intake can make Chris Froom win one of the most competitive endurance races on the planet, multiple times, how could it help you get into better shape?
