    Thanks very much for the reply, Scott. Hearing that in your work with both men and women the fat adaptation intervention works and is beneficial is very reassuring. Thanks so much for sharing your wisdom with us so we can learn.

    And Aaron and mountain_stoke, thanks for the podcast reference, I just listened to an episode and it was great. Definitely will tear through them.

    Hi Scott and all, I wanted to jump onto this and ask if you have any thoughts about how this applies to female athletes? The literature cited uses exclusively male study subjects (a common problem in both health/medicine and sports science…. I am sure there are relevant studies out there but they are fewer). As Stacy Sims famously says, “women are not small men.” There are reasons that is metabolically really a benefit in terms of endurance challenges, but it also might mean that the ideal macro ratios for us are different and our fueling strategies during exercise might be too. Do you have any observations/experience that would either suggest that your approach described above is equally appropriate for women, or that we should modify it in one direction or another?
