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 and FatAdaptation.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 how he got interested in fat-adaptation when he bonked during a race, how adding in more fat to his diet vastly improved his running, how his allergies improved after cutting the carbs out of his diet, why fat-adaptation hasn’t become more the norm in endurance athletes, the emerging science coming from Dr. Jeff Volek’s FASTER Study, why the carb-loading science has showed positive results, how athletes get away with eating more carbohydrates than the less active population, why athletes are turning to the ketogenic approach to performance, whether you can maximize performance and optimize health at the same time, what the VESPA product is and does, the Optimized Fat Metabolism (OFM) program he uses with athletes to eat low-carb to improve performance, whether a professional sports team would buy into becoming fat-adapted, how Dr. Steve Phinney complimented Peter about his work, whether Tom Brady is tinkering with fat-adaptation, how stress is anti-ketogenic, why he can say things as an empiricist that the researchers can’t say, and what things he is observing that the research needs to be paying attention to. If you want to know about the role of ketosis in exercise performance, then this is the podcast for YOU!

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.

The importance of optimizing your gut microbiome is on the radar screen of so many researchers, practitioners, and even educated patients these days that it’s almost impossible for the rest of the world to continue to ignore it. That’s why a doctor, clinical researcher, author, podcaster and functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Michael Ruscio from DrRuscio.com (listen to his previous interview on the show in Episode 985), one of the world’s foremost authorities on gut health and digestion, is currently performing two clinical trials in the treatment of digestive conditions. He realizes that this message is the future focal point of medicine and is doing his part to take that message around the world. To that end, Dr. Ruscio will be giving a full day of talks about this subject practitioners and laypeople alike on January 17, 2016 at the (re)Find Health conference in London, England.

Meet Dr. Michael Ruscio in London, UK on January 17, 2016

Listen in as Dr. Ruscio and I share about his own gut health problems that led him to look into this, his upcoming January 17th London event, how to cut through the good and not-so-good in the microbiome research, why the recommendation to eat more carbs to feed the gut flora isn’t necessarily a good idea, the “elemental diet” concept he uses with patients, how having SIBO should change how you feed your gut bugs, what people can do to get rid of bad gut bacteria, how metabolic individuality matters when it comes to the diet that’s right for you, how you can figure out where you are on the carbohydrate spectrum, why starting low with carbohydrate intake can be better for most people, how to best optimize thyroid health, the autoimmune thyroid issue that is tied to the gut, why saying a low-carb diet damages thyroid health is dead wrong, and whether fasting would be a problem or a benefit for someone with thyroid autoimmunity. Dr. Michael Ruscio is a brilliant articulator of this complex issue and we hope you enjoy this interview with him today.

Two of the emerging areas of research and clinical knowledge to emerge in the world of health over the past few years has been proper hormone balance and optimized gut health through advanced lab testing that most conventional medical doctors just simply aren’t running on their patients. Balancing hormone levels for optimal human function and rehabbing the GI microbiome are two critical areas of interest that are being used by the most cutting-edge medical practitioners now. One such example of this is today’s podcast interview guest–registered nurse Amelia Luker from NourishBalanceThrive.com (you may remember Christopher Kelly from there was helping Jimmy with blood tests earlier this year).

Amelia struggled eating what she thought was a healthy low-fat, high-carb diet for many years before switching over to a more low-carb plan to improve her health. But it wasn’t until she discovered saliva hormone testing where she found out she had low cortisol and a gut infection that her health truly improved–and now she’s helping others in their own pursuit of optimal health as a functional medicine practitioner. Listen in as Jimmy and Amelia have an engaging conversation on her journey into functional medicine, why she made the switch from a hospital setting to what she does now, the negative effects of a poor diet, the role of stress in chronic diseases, how fixing hormonal problems is challenging with so many moving parts, and her controversial position on why raw potato starch (the so-called resistant starch that has become popular in the Paleo community in recent years) might actually make gut health worse not better. This is a fabulous interview you won’t want to miss!
