On yesterday’s episode of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show,” Jimmy interviewed a man named Peter Defty who is a triathlete coaching ultra-marathon and endurance sports athletes to tap into their body’s natural ability to burn fat for fuel. On today’s show, we keep that conversation going with a great friend of the show, former endurance and Ironman athlete, health blogger, and bestselling author named Mark Sisson from MarksDailyApple.com who knows a thing or two about endurance athletics having competed at a very elite level over three decades ago in distance running, triathlons, and Ironman competitions. When his health began to take a nosedive as a result of his performance-driven dietary choices, Mark began investigating better ways to fuel his body and realized that carbohydrates were the problem not the answer. Now he realizes the mistakes he has made and is passing along this newfound wisdom to the athletes he is helping to compete at a high level with less training, less carbs, and quicker recovery. Mark has outlined it all in his compelling new book that is a must-read for anyone interested in the physiology of how the body moves entitled Primal Endurance: Escape chronic cardio and carbohydrate dependency and become a fat burning beast. Listen in as Jimmy and Mark dive head first into this critically important, cutting-edge topic!

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!

Our host Jimmy Moore has been in the midst of a fasting experiment in the month of January (see all the details of this N=1 experiment in his daily Periscope updates at JimmyScopes.com). Prior to beginning this fast, he decided to drive two hours up I-85 from Spartanburg, South Carolina to Concord, North Carolina to see an emergency medicine and functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Jeffrey Galvin, MD from Vitality Medical Wellness Institute (you may remember hearing Dr. Galvin back in Episode 604) to get a DEXA scan as a means for determining the baseline level of body fat and lean muscle mass. As Jimmy was doing a Periscope video of his DEXA scan (see below), a spontaneous interview with Dr. Galvin commenced that ran the gamut on a wide variety of health topics that was just too compelling not to share with you the listeners of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” ENJOY!


https://vimeo.com/150435615

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Galvin discuss the results of Jimmy’s DEXA scan measuring body fat and lean muscle mass, how much a DEXA scan costs and where you can get one done, why he believes Jimmy will lose a lot of muscle on his January fast, his concerns with low-protein liquid diets, why he doesn’t care about what a patient’s weight is, how mainstream medicine is starting to get the diet and lifestyle connection to disease, why mainstream medicine is currently failing at helping their patients get better, the lack of knowledge about the importance of thyroid health, why Metformin may be the first life-extension drug, the electrolytes concern he has about an extended fast, whether you can sense an arrhythmia coming on, how people can find doctors like him in their area, how he tries to determine what his patients want in their health goals, why his “normal” ranges on health tests is radically different from conventional levels, how lifestyle is the stool he seeks to optimize for his patients, why he’s not a perfectionist for his patients to be 100% strict, how you can’t get ketoacidosis eating a low-carb, kegogenic diet, and the connection between dementia/Alzheimer’s disease (Type 3 diabetes) and insulin resistance. This was quite the compelling interview that we knew you’d love to hear!

When our host Jimmy Moore moderated a prestigious panel about the role of ketogenic diets in the treatment of cancer at the Ancestral Health Symposium in 2014, it was merely the beginning of a revolution happening in the treatment of cancer. We’ve been sharing about this topic quite a bit over the years beginning with the work of ketogenic cancer researcher Dr. Thomas Seyfried back in 2009, another ketogenic cancer researcher named Dr. Colin Champ in 2012, and keto cancer counselor Miriam Kalamian in 2013–and today we have a real life example of a eye cancer survivor named Patricia Daly, a Fully Qualified Nutritional Therapist from Dublin, Ireland who is now helping others use the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet principles that quite literally saved her life! She’s authored an e-book to assist other cancer patients called Practical Keto Meal Plans for Cancer.

Listen in as Jimmy and Patricia talk about her 2008 diagnosis of a rare form of cancer in the eye, the disappointing answers she got from her oncologist about her cancer, how this experience got her to delve deeply into nutrition, what juicing for cancer is supposed to do for patients (and why it doesn’t work as well for many), her cancer relapse experience in 2012, why her doctor told her she would become blind, why she turned to the ketogenic diet for her cancer, the things she saw in her vision that showed her how close she was to going blind, her November 2015 “scare” that helped her realize the cancer is gone, why she no longer regularly tests for blood ketones anymore, the physical manifestations of being in a constant state of ketosis, what her ketogenic diet looks like on a plate, the role of intermittent fasting in her health plan, why consuming organ meats is so important, the mental struggle she dealt with adding fat back into her diet, when she studied nutrition to use as a profession, her memory of helping her first cancer client (who had exactly the same cancer as she did), the Alchemy business in Dublin, Ireland that serves bone broth, her upcoming new book about low-carb ketogenic diets on April 8, 2016, and her Keto For You online course.
