Doesnt the body need glucose for energy and endurance

The answer here is "yes," but only if you're in the usual "glycogen/glucose/pyruvic acid" cycle activated by a diet that relies on carbohydrates. Once you've made the "metabolic shift" to the Anabolic Diet and you're burning dietary and body fat for energy, you don't need the glucose from the carbohydrates.

Even if on a high carb diet, fat is still an important source of energy and actually a more efficient fuel than either carbs or protein. It shouldn't be too surprising to find that energy levels and endurance aren't hindered once you switch over to burning free fatty acids as your main energy supply.
