From my perspective, the focus on avoiding glycolysis is new. I never heard about it under I heard about it here.Unfortunately any discussion of high carbs becomes focused on glycolysis, and a general admonishment to avoid heavy use of this pathway degenerates into a slap fest over all things glycolytic, to the point where it is difficult to even have a conversation about the benefits of this pathway ...
Nothing I've read has suggested that glycolysis is to be avoided altogether, which is impossible, anyway. The newer wisdom is that athletic performance that used to be achieved through training the glycolytic system can be achieved through other means - avoiding the glycolytic system for the most part - that are overall better for many people and many situations. Glycolysis "costs" more than using other energy systems.
I was reading something earlier today that suggested that adherence to _any_ diet plan is more important that _which_ diet plan was being used. That seems right to me.
