Dr. Paul Laursen joins Debbie in this episode. He is a low carb researcher, elite endurance coach, and co-founder of HIIT Science. He focuses on exercise and performance research, having published over three-hundred peer review papers.
An Ironman athlete himself, Dr. Laursen tells us about how he noticed that he was becoming unhealthy while training for a competition. He swapped to a low carb, high fat diet which brought on a profound personal transformation. Debbie talks about when she realized a high carb diet was not right for her, either.
Dr. Laursen discusses how to become fat adapted, noting that it mostly has to do with diet. He also brings up some states that athletes fall into during which they are sabotaging their process.
