Former MMA fighter and low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic athlete Kyle Kingsbury is our guest today in Episode 1129 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
One of the hottest sports in America today is mixed martial arts as evidenced by the $4 billion sale of UFC that took place just this week. Today's featured interview guest is a former MMA fighter and newly-converted low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic athlete named Kyle Kingsbury. He doesn't currently have an active website, but you can follow him on Twitter. Kyle started his athletic career playing football making it all the way to the collegiate level at Arizona State University before shifting to mixed martial arts. He reached the pinnacle of his fighting career appearing on The Ultimate Fighter Season 8 and The Ultimate Fighting Championship.
After completing his MMA career in 2014, Kyle decided to focus on optimizing his nutrition as a means for improving his athletics. That's what led him to study and implement the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet into his routine. Now he spreads the word about living better through lifestyle choices. Listen in as Jimmy and Kyle discuss his progression as an athlete, what his old diet looked like compared to how he eats today, his views on and uses of fasting, the practical application of ketogenic diets in athletic performance, and all the amazing benefits that come from eating keto. It's great hearing from someone like Kyle who is a fabulous advocate for nutritional ketosis!
