Tim Noakes, MD, is a South African scientist known for challenging common paradigms of exercise physiology. He espouses the controversial low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet, sometimes called LCHF or even "Tim Noakes." In the early 1990s he cofounded the Sports Science Institute of South Africa. Since 1996, his physiological research has produced more than 370 scientific articles. Noakes took on the sports drink industry with his studies of hyponatremia, and was awarded the International Cannes Grand Prix Award for Research in Medicine and Water on that front. In 2005 he undertook a series of pioneering experiments in the Arctic and Antarctic to understand the full range of human capability in extreme cold, and coined the phrase "anticipatory thermogenesis" in the process.

A lot to take in and I am finding focusing difficult with all the new knowledge I have received from this book. Just a ton to absorb and work on. In a matter of a couple of days after reading the book, I had taken well over 30 seconds off my average mile time. Ran a 16 mile build up run and felt great, no aches or pains, and ran it around 10 minutes faster than I had a year ago, almost to the day.
Anyone looking to go minimal on the footwear, this is a must read! Good luck!
