Today we get to hear another story of someone that discovered the benefits of being low carb and fat adaptive. This time it’s Pete Jacobs, a professional athlete and winner of the 2012 Ironman Hawaii competition.
Pete says that one of his easiest Ironman competitions was when he performed on just a bit of honey and water. He stayed on a low carb diet for years after, but the health issues he had since a teenager were not going away. He explains how this led to him taking a break from competing in 2018 and fills us in on what has happened since then.
Pete shares his thoughts on the carnivore diet before talking about why bodybuilders need different foods than endurance athletes. He also brings up why, in some cases, vegetables have become the new soda and chocolate.
