What would be the benefit of doing that? What would the risk be?

No you need to eat carbs especially for high intensity exercise. If you don’t then your performance will suffer. You should be eating carbs and food with low fat prior to an exercise session. You need .7 – 1.8 grams of protein per kg and 5-12 grams of carbs per kg and both depend on the intensity level of your exercise routine.
Cutting out carbs pre-workout should be OK, If you have consumed carbs in the past 72 hours. I usually consume MCT Oil (medium chain triglyceride) before my workout and keep my carbs lower, but not completely out alltogether.
The MCT Oil is a fat that does’nt store on your body like a long chain triglyceride, twice as dense as a carb, this should give you plenty of fuel needed for your workout.
Simple rule of thumb used for protein consumption…take one half of your body weight and convert it to grams…ie: 180 pounds = 90 grams of protein.
NO Explode…save your money…work with food first to get your results.
Train hard every workout session…push yourself to your limits…shock yourself and try something new, mix it up, keep your body guessing, feed it, hydrate it and rest it!
