Looking at the date of my last post, I guess I let the summer get away from me. Hopefully you all are out enjoying the benefits of your OFM lifestyle in this great weather! This summer I did do a lot of driving and listened to several great podcasts on the ketogenic diet and OFM (often referred to in these as modified low carb or modified ketogenic diet). Tim Ferriss has done several great interviews on the subject with some of the top researchers in the field. You will also hear our friends Dr. Phinney and Dr. Volek's names come up often. Download these for your next road trip or long run and you will learn a lot more about this field than you will reading this blog! Note: Most of these are really long. So you probably are not going to rip through them all in an afternoon....but if you drive from Florida to Nebraska alone they will be over before you arrive.
Dr. Peter Attia with Tim Ferriss (Dec 2014)
This one is a few years old but pretty entertaining. Below are the topics covered at the times copied from Tim Fierriss' site:
Dr Peter Attia Solo (March 2015)
I enjoyed this one a little more than the first as it was a little more focused. This was released as a double episode, so you just want the second one (#65).
Dr. Dom D'Agostino with Tim Ferriss (Nov 2015)
These two with Dr. D'Agostino get pretty deep into the science but I liked them a lot. In this one there is a lot of discussion of using this diet to fight cancer, which I think everyone should be interested in. And I was certainly interested in his diet while traveling (although I don't think I'll be carrying my own tuna with me).
Dr. Dom D'Agostino Solo (July 2016)
I'll be honest, a few of these questions/answers I had to listen to a few times to understand but there are some great nuggets of info in here. And if you can't stand the sound of Tim's voice, this is just a solo talk by Dr. D'Agostino. Cool info for runners on performance at altitude, some cholesterol talk like we have had one here, and great content on females and this diet.
When you are all done listening to all four of these, please leave a comment and it will motivate me to get another real blog written for you. I want to tell you about the 52 hour fast I embarked on after listening to these podcasts and how I recently failed to meet my own standards.
