How are you defining endurance training?

I've read that high intensity and low carb don't work well, but endurance with low carb should be OK. I don't have any personal experience with this (yet, I've switched to a low carb diet to help control my blood sugar). Given that I've never had any calorie related nutrition problems on the bike, I'm hoping that the type of biking I do (moderate intensity distance riding) will be sustainable on a low carb diet.
