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!

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.

1061: Patricia Daly Beats Back Her Eye Cancer With A Ketogenic Diet

Dublin, Ireland-based Fully Qualified Nutritional Therapist and ketogenic cancer survivor Patricia Daly is our interview guest today in Episode 1061 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

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.

1060: Professor Grant Schofield Asks What The Fat Is Going On In Nutrition

Auckland, New Zealand-based professor of public health, researcher, and author Professor Grant Schofield is our interview guest today in Episode 1060 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Fat is making a pretty major comeback of sorts over the past couple of years as more and more people are finally realizing we’ve been sold a big fat lie about how harmful it is to our health. And for a respected PhD public health academic for the past two decades hailing from Auckland, New Zealand known as “The Fat Professor,” the time is now to take this message to the masses in a big way. His name is Professor Grant Schofield from ProfGrant.com and he has authored a brand new whimsically-titled book on this subject entitled What the Fat?: Fat’s IN: Sugar’s OUT Practical guide and recipes (learn more about it at WhatTheFatBook.com).

Listen in as Jimmy and Grant talk about how the subtitle of Cholesterol Clarity inspired the title of his book, why he never intended to get involved in nutritional health, how he used to believe that health was all about exercise, why he believes the calories in/calories out hypothesis is “ridiculous,” how exercise performance is enhanced on a low-carb, high-fat diet, how Professor Tim Noakes in South Africa has been such an inspiration, the cognitive dissonance he and others in the exercise world had about nutrition, the sketchy world of nutritional health research, the health star rating system being used in Australia and New Zealand (demonizing butter still while pushing flavored milk as healthy), how the latest New Zealand Dietary Guidelines specifically target low-carb, Paleo, and intermittent fasting as being too dangerous for people to do, why it’s a no-brainer to remove carbohydrates as part of a healthy diet for diabetes and obesity, whether the fight to make change happen is worth it, the healthy living principles that should go along with LCHF, why we need to let kids get back to being kids again with play, how even adults forget about the importance of playing, and the importance of people doing more N=1 experiments to progress the message forward. This is a critically important interview you’ll want to listen to and share.
