Triathlete and fat-adapted ultra-endurance sports athletics coach Peter Defty is our interview guest today in Episode 1070 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

One of the surprising benefits to a ketogenic diet for a lot of people to discover is how some of the most elite endurance athletes in the world are now using this fat-adapted regimen to give them much more sustainable energy throughout their race. What this means is these athletes are actually eating a lot less of the very thing they were always told was the critical nutritional element in the performance success of their sport--carbohydrates! But for a triathlete and fat-adapted ultra-endurance sports athletics coach named Peter Defty from VESPAPower.com, he's long realized the idea of "carbing-up" before a race is based on decades-old flawed science. That's why he is taking the science of people like ketogenic research legend Dr. Stephen Phinney and training some of the best endurance athletes in the world to record-breaking performances, including Zach Bitter who we interviewed on this podcast back in Episode 944.

Listen in as Jimmy and Peter talk about this awakening of fat-adaptation amongst athletes, the scientists who paved the way for this to be talked about now, the amazing brain health benefits of burning ketones as fuel, Peter's personal journey to fat adaptation, the athletes he's working with to teach them these principles, the actual science being used to promote this, and so much more! If you want to know about the role of ketosis in exercise performance, then this is the podcast for YOU!
