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!

Ketogenic diets have seen a meteoric rise in popularity over the past few years as more and more people are recognizing the therapeutic use of a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet for improving their health. This has opened the floodgates of people wanting more information, recipes, and meal plans that fit this new keto lifestyle. That’s precisely the need that a food blogger named Vanessa Collette from “Ketogenic Girl” (listen to her in Episode 172 of Low-Carb Conversations) is filling with her brand new Ketogenic Meal Plans & Coaching Services. Vanessa is currently studying to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist to combine a formal nutritional health education with her passion for helping people optimize their health through nutritional ketosis. She understands the frustration so many people have to become keto-adapted and is committed to helping clients raise their blood ketones and lower their blood sugar levels.

Listen in as Jimmy and Vanessa talk about how she got interested in ketogenic diets, the concern about why food isn’t used more as medicine, where she learned about the dangers of sugar and carbohydrates as well as the health benefits of ketosis, why the Atkins diet doesn’t work well enough for a lot of people, how Keto Clarity improved her knowledge of ketogenic diets, why testing ketones is so important, why she aims to keep her clients’ blood sugar levels below 90, how blood sugar can dip into the 60s and 70s while in higher levels of ketosis, why weight loss isn’t the primary benefit of a ketogenic diet, the amazing energy and brain health benefits of going keto, how ketones are the way our bodies were designed to be fueled, her ketogenic meal plans and coaching services, the most common mistake she sees people making in pursuit of ketosis, why 1-3 mmol on the blood ketone meter gives you the most benefits, the role dietary fat plays in producing ketones, a typical low-carb, high-fat meal she enjoys, how the low-fat diet infiltrated our culture, and the experiences she has working with clients one-on-one to produce change.

1068: Dr. David Ludwig Takes A Closer Look At Why We Are Always Hungry

Pediatric endocrinologist, medical school professor, nutritional health researcher, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Ludwig is our interview guest today in Episode 1068 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

The greatest nemesis in any given diet plan is hunger. When you are hungry, then your body starts to scream at you to feed it more food by giving you clues like hunger pangs, fatigue, and other such symptoms. But a Harvard-based pediatric endocrinologist, medical school professor, and nutritional health researcher named Dr. David Ludwig (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 403) from DrDavidLudwig.com would argue that it’s not necessarily the overeating that has made us all fat–instead, it’s getting fat that makes us overeat. This is why we are constantly fighting the desire to consume more and more to try to satisfy that persistent physical cue to eat. It’s the premise of Dr. Ludwig’s brand new New York Times bestselling Always Hungry?: Conquer Cravings, Retrain Your Fat Cells, and Lose Weight Permanently.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ludwig talk about the methods that help children helps adults too, Dr. Ludwig’s 2012 “calorie is not a calorie” JAMA study, the difference in energy expenditure and weight changes with low-carb vs. low-fat diets, why an isocaloric meal comparison will produce the same weight loss results in the short term, why continuing to cut calories is problematic, the power of hunger signals and why they should not be ignored, Dr. Ludwig’s 2004 fast-acting carbs Lancet study, how the process of getting fat makes you overeat, why insulin is the Miracle Grow for fat cells, why having hunger as a good thing is a “cultural delusion,” whether continuous exposure to refined carbohydrates can make you more sensitive to all carbs, why diet order matters in the effect on your metabolism, the three phases of his plan, the modifications in the plan for people with carb sensitivity, why some people may not see results on his plan, why his plan is not a ketogenic diet, how he works backwards from his approach to Atkins to ketogenic, and how ketones are a very clean fuel for the body.

An out of control appetite is the nemesis of many would-be dieters with high hopes for losing weight and improving their health. But for Dr. Bert Herring, MD from BertHerring.com, he understands why people overeat and is now seeking to help patients correct this problem. Dr. Herring is best known for his book on intermittent fasting entitled The Fast-5 Diet and the Fast-5 Lifestyle (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 503). But in his latest book AC: The Power of Appetite Correction, Dr. Herring gives practical guidelines based on conversations with his “Fast-5ers” for correcting the appetite disorder that is leading to overconsumption of food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Herring talk about why he wanted to write a follow-up book to his Fast-5 program, why eating in such a way to turn down appetite is key, the tools he created to help correct the appetite, the hormones involved in appetite and why they’re not as important as you might think, how cortisol can bring on intense hunger, how stress raises cortisol which increases insulin that can make you hungry, why you should expend a little work into making your food to respect the process, how he uses the acronym AC to adjust the thermostat of your body, his thoughts on extended fasts up to 3 days long, why each person needs to customize the fast that works for them, the “dark stigma” that still exists with fasting, why he’s not a fan of fasts longer than a few days without medical supervision, when he believes it’s possible to go “too far” in your fasting efforts, nature’s natural mechanisms to control appetite in the animal kingdom, the intense pull of food advertising, how our bodies are like the Stone Age even though our culture is not, and how we the consumers are the “product” of the television commercials.
