How to win on fat: Becoming a fat-burning machine for athletic performance

Ketosis is becoming more and more of a recognized strategy for athletic performance, especially since two of the top performers in this year’s Tour de France – including the winner – were on some type of low-carb diet.

One of the few people who had an early interest in ketosis for increased performance was the coach and ultra athlete Peter Defty. In this talk from the Low Carb USA conference, he talks about what he has come to realize – everything from stress, weight management and how to get adapted – by getting top athletes to become fat-burning machines.

There were over 70 lobbying groups wanting input into the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans before finalization. The elite athletes are going to get the publicity that will shock big sugar, big agra and big food. They will not be able to buy the podium.
