I am really digging this new ebook, by Peter Defty, a pioneer in fat adaptation and my coach during my transition from a carb burner to a fat burner! I loved it so much I have lifted (with permission) some of his ideas for the title of this blog. He has done an outstanding job of laying out very scientific ideas in an easy to understand format. Please take the time to read this and follow the Vespa page for more great info from Peter and his team.
Even if you are on your 5th year of low carb eating, like myself, you will learn something in this section. The graphics are awesome at literally painting a picture of how carb burners create and use energy vs how fat burners do the same thing. Ever wondered by your blood ketones are low even though you are not eating carbs?? He answers that question. Get through page 21 and you can more than hold your own with 99% of the keto/low carb folks (the other 1% read The Art & Sceince of Low Carbohydrate Living by Dr. Phinney and Dr. Volek AND this E-book).
Page 22-30 takes you on a deep dive into Peter's OFM program and how Vespa factors into that. Here he uses science to show you how OFM can help you maximize your athletic potential vs a strict keto type diet.
Having had the honor of working with Peter, I can tell you his knowledge on the subject of low carb athletic performance in individuals is second to none. Even the scientists in this field will tell you that what he is doing with his athletes is expanding what the scientific community even thought was possible.
Enough of me talking about it- Please take a few minutes and download this E-book today and read it. Would love to hear you comments and questions on it!
