Today's Keto Clarity expert interview is with a St. Petersburg, FL-based internal medicine, nephrologist, and obesity medicine practitioner named Dr. Keith Runyan. In 1998, Dr. Runyan developed Type 1 diabetes at the age of 38 which was fairly well controlled with intensive insulin therapy, but he was plagued with frequent hypoglycemic episodes. In 2011, while training for an Ironman distance triathlon, he was looking for a better way to treat his diabetes and perform endurance exercise and he decided to give the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet a try. In February 2012, Dr. Runyan began the diet for the treatment of his diabetes and learned that this diet was also effective for the treatment of numerous other conditions, including obesity. Dr. Runyan completed an Ironman distance triathlon on October 20, 2012 in a full state of nutritional ketosis and feeling great doing it. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Runyan share about how powerful a modality for optimizing health shifting from your body over from being a sugar-burner to a fat and ketone burner can be. We've got a few more Keto Clarity expert interviews left, so don't miss a single one.
