262: Swedish Low-Carb Triathlete Jonas Colting

Hello and welcome back to The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

In Episode 262, Jimmy interviews Sweden’s premiere triathlete, Jonas Colting. Jonas actually uses a low-carbohydrate nutritional approach to attain his peak physical performance, and my, oh my, what results he’s had! Jonas has catapulted to one of the most elite athletes in the entire world–and he’s done it by livin’ la vida low-carb!

Listen in to today’s interview as they talk not only about such feats of fitness as biking into the Arctic circle, but also for news on the developing story of official low-carb acceptance by Sweden’s government and population (as previously reported first exclusively right here at this podcast in interviews with Dr. Annika Dahlqvist and Per Wikholm).

    Jonas was awesome, he really protrayed the situation here in Sweden well – how it’s all so twisted.

    I was talking to my friend just today, and asked if her father’s family was still eating low-fat milk and low-fat margarine, and she said “Yeah, they still eat healthy”.

    It’s just terrible, this misinformation/infomercial stuff. But I hope it’ll all be reversed so that at least the next generation doesn’t have a hard time eating real food.

    And this battle over the definition of what “healthy” is at the heart of everything I have been trying to do over the past few years.

    Laura, we’re still moving everything over from the old site to this new one, so I’m not sure if the link will work. Try this one from my blog post about it. THANKS!

    Love this podcast, Jimmy. I especially loved hearing Jason say that he eats a high amount of red meat. The idea of training less as a competition grows near is interesting. I will be posting this pod cast.

    I have quite a few posts on Mark’s Daily Apple under the intermittent fasting blog.

    Jonas was quite articulate stating why low-carb works to make him a better athlete. I enjoyed doing this interview.

    Jimmy this was very interesting. In fact your whole site is very interesting.
    I have been running for years and have spoken to people in the past about reducing your carb intake to improve your performance. Thanks for all the information. Keep up the good work!

    Money Saving Listener Tip:

    Use that old margarine in your fridge as chain lube.

    A very interesting take on Sweden. Clearly was not what I had visioned.
