This is my new research project. I did a little reading on a low-carb blog, can't remember which one, that talked about the correlation between low-carb high-fat eating in some people groups and greater average height. One example given was the Maasai. After watching this video of David Rudisha's world record run in the 800 meter yesterday and seeing his built all of what I read made sense. This amazing runner was running for his tribe and they honored him for it.
My 15-year-old daughter is still fine-tuning her low-carb diet and I am curious if she will grow any more in height, which should help her swimming performance. I already can see that here energy level is increasing and her stroke technique in all disciplines is vastly improved after 4 short private lessons this week.
If anyone has any links or other info on this topic I would love to hear about it and discuss it here or on one of the low-carb or paleo groups.
I am reading the book by Volek and Phinney about "The Art of Low-Carbohydrate Performance". I love it so far and hopefully will blog about it very soon. <link>
