Chocolate Fat Shake
This Tim Noakes Chocolate Fat Shake Recipe puts Noakes’ low-carb, high fat diet (LCHF) into perspective.
Like the Paleo diet, healthy fats are the backbone of this Banting styled eating plan.
In fact the benefits of this type of shake, in terms of its fat content, demonstrated how fat can be beneficial for the body’s performance instead of being a bad thing as we have become conditioned to believe.
Interestingly this fat shake recipe originated from a blog post on a popular South African cycling forum (The Hub SA) some years ago.
According to Noakes fat is your friend & is also an appetite suppressant which will therefore keep you feeling full for longer whilst providing you with enough fuel to keep your energy levels topped up for longer.
So when a cyclist or endurance athlete says they do not start their training days without having their fat shakes first it makes a massive statement as to the important role that fat plays in keeping your body fuelled for long lasting energy.
