I've recently gotten into cycling and read some interesting things. Boiling it down what i'm going to base this on is your body learns to burn whatever it is that you eat. Ex. Eat a lot of carbs, body gets very good at burning sugar, you gain fat as it stores it. So, what I don't get is why not do a (% of Cal. wise) high fat diet? Reason being, if your body is taking in a lot of fat, it learns to burn fat, and as result as long as your taking in the correct amount of Cal. the amount of fat in the body will decrease. As much as this sounds cool i know it can't be right, so someone please tell me what i'm missing.
