Episode #447 Peter Defty On Strategic Carb Timing Part One

Are you an aging low carb endurance athlete? How do you become fat adapted and when do you add in carbs- strategic carbs to improve performance.

The difference of Keto for “normal” people and keto for athletes…50 grams vs. 200-300 grams a day.

How do we know what carbs to eat, how many grams are okay and when to take them?

Are you going to knock us out of fat burning if eat carbs? How to test if too little or too many carbs? Are carbs needed for athletes?

Why can’t we just be carnivores?

Not all carbs are evil – which carbs to eat and when to improve fat loss, health and performance.

OFM stands for Optimized Fat Metabolism. OFM essentially resets the body back to burning “fat as fuel” for most of the aerobic spectrum so your body prefers to metabolize fat at high aerobic rates, rates much higher than the current science says is possible but consistent with the emerging science on fat adaptation.

Once an athlete is adapted, OFM actually enhances strategic carbohydrate use so now carbohydrates work like they never worked before, using less. OFM (Optimized Fat Metabolism) was created & developed for VESPA athletes to consistently obtain the “game-changing” performance and health benefits of using VESPA and getting the body back to its natural state of using “fat as your fuel” for aerobic metabolism.

OFM is an integrated, multi-facetted approach to help the athlete make that fundamental shift back to burning “fat as fuel” for aerobic metabolism, even at higher aerobic levels. Emerging science from the FASTER Study is confirming what VESPA athletes already know; that fat metabolism plays a much larger role than previously thought possible and actually helps make carbohydrate use more powerful and sustainable.

Are you struggling to get the desired results from your current fueling, training and performance plan? Are you trying to do all the “right” things but still feel fat, exhausted and sluggish each day? Do you strive to get your body and VIBRANT self back again?

How much fasting is good for you? When should you do fasted exercise? When should you break a fast? When should you eat? What should you eat? N = 1 experiment! Life is not a race, it is a journey but you can learn how to course correct with Intuitive Fueling and Training as a fat adapted athlete.

The struggle is real and I understand the challenges as well as frustrations in finding the right answers to feeling and looking your best -especially when you think you are doing everything “right”. Doctors may tell you that your lab results are “normal” and there is nothing is wrong with you – but you know that you are off and not performing your best in life or sports.
