I have been eating a hardboiled egg prior to my workout but she said my body should have extra carbs.

Has anyone else been doing the IP Alternative Phase 1, I know some have because they are diabetic or young adults, but has anyone done it so they can exercise?

Looking for feedback to see how it works and whether it hinders your results, I would still like to lose another 7-10 lbs before moving to phase 2.
My coach did not recommend this and I am a hard core exerciser, and she knows me well...

I have done a lot of research in ketosis and exercise. Once you are in ketosis your athletic performance should actually increase. If you feel you need anything extra it is protein or fat, not carbs.

Coaches are not experts. You should research this yourself and decide.
