Peter Defty is today’s guest. He pioneered the current low carb performance movement using a fat adapted approach that has evolved over the years called optimized fat metabolism (OFM). Like any true innovator, Peter is regularly ridiculed and dismissed by the “experts.”
Working with athletes for years, Peter has demonstrated the competitive edge that a fat fueled approach offers. He’s been challenging the current science, and it’s important to get his message out there. Peter pushes the boundaries of human performance through using fat as fuel.
Debbie and Peter discuss carb dosing and how many carbohydrates we can tolerate without going on a blood sugar roller coaster. Lots of keto research is based on people with chronic diseases, but the information applies to endurance athletes a little differently.
