Learn about the basics of fat adaptation by downloading the SFuels and Endure IQ Quickstart Guide. We take you through the what, the why, and the how of how to begin your low carb approach to long distance triathlon.
Dr Dan Plews chats to Professor Grant Schofield about the background of Endure IQ, and why the first Endure IQ course "Practical Application of Low Carbohydrate Performance (LDT101)" can be a game changer.
In this course you will learn how to transition, adapt and maintain a diet which optimises your fat burning and endurance capacity. Once you have completed the course, you will have all the knowledge you need to be a fat burning machine and apply this approach with ease to your life, training and racing.
Check out a brief demo of the course itself.
Each Endure IQ online course is guided by providing background of knowledge and experience to the following questions.

With his interest in the low carb approach to endurance performance extending past his extensive research in the area and into daily living, he aims to provide you with both the fast hard facts and the realness of the LCHF lifestyle in training, racing and daily living.
Dan will be joined by guest experts in their respective fields, Professor Grant Schofield (Public Health) and Dr. Mikki Williden (Nutrition).

"The normal sports nutrition model suits a few people I’m sure, but for me to not fade around 8hrs in a 9h 30 race was the key element and I happy to say, after 5 months of giving the LCHF approach a go, Ironman Santa Rosa was my best run performance in 10 years and I had only 2 gels the whole marathon, with no energy dips. I wasn’t sure how I’d go, but training sessions had given me confidence plus a 70.3 five weeks earlier. I now continue the quest to tweak the current levels, as its not easy, but always learning and look forward to improved performances into my 40’s! Dan, having done LDT101, my understanding is much greater and I can hopefully help others with issues and share the love."
"After completing the course on the application of the LCHF approach for long distance triathletes I can recommend the great program the guys EndureIQ have put together. Even if you are not a LCHF coach understanding the ‘practical application’ of this approach is key to applying it to your athletes or working with those following this dietary approach. The course is hosted by academics but with a ‘real world’ view and importantly personal ‘experience' of the LCHF application for long course."
"Super valuable course if you are interested in how food can effect your performance and your general health. The material is compact and very visual thanks to all the video recordings. Plenty of scientific examples for those who love digging into more detail but also easy to follow if you just want to understand the concept and how to approach LCHF. There are so many ‘’diets’’ on the market that are recommended for long distance athletes. Dan and his team are looking into some interesting facts and evidence why many athletes are struggling when it comes to food, body composition and taking the performance to next level. If you think the LCHF is not your cup of tea, it will still put lot of things into perspective in long distance sport performance. It is a course that links science, proof and practise into one holistic approach."
Can I do the course even if I am not a Long Distance Triathlete?
Yes. Whilst the context of the course is within long distance triathlon, the basic principles within the course apply to anyone doing endurance sport.
Do I need to complete LDT101 before completing LDT102 or LDT103?
No. The content for each of the courses is independent from the other courses so you can complete them in any order you would like.
Does LDT101 course content apply to vegetarians and vegans?
Our course content includes recommendations based on all food groups. We do not cater for vegetarians or vegans specifically in the course content, so it would be at your discretion of how to best substitute from the recommended food groups.
Do I get lifetime access to the course materials?
No, due to copyright the video learning materials are only available until course access closes (7 weeks from the date of enrollment). However, you do receive a workbook to facilitate your learning and there are practical resources available for select lessons that you can download. We recommend that you take notes throughout the course that you can refer back to once course access has ended.
Do I get lifetime access to the Endure IQ Community on Facebook?
No, due to the time that it takes to upkeep the Facebook page, access to the Facebook group will end upon conclusion of your course. You will however be able to download certain materials from the Facebook group to refer back to once course access has closed.
What happens after I complete the course?
You will receive a certificate of completion and we’ll direct you to further courses that will continue to advance your knowledge.
How do I know the course is credible and contains correct information?
This course is evidence-informed and based on coach, applied practitioner, and athlete based experiences.
