Peter Attia - An Advantaged Metabolic State: Human Performance, Resilience & Health
Peter Attia is a relentless self-experimenter, obsessed with the idea of a "quantified self." In the presentation he will share two components of his physical transformation as he evolved from "fit but fat and metabolically deranged" to "fit, lean, and metabolically dialed in." In particular, Peter will focus on the possible advantages of a ketogenic diet, and in the process share much of what he's learned implementing it in himself and hundreds of others over the past two years.
Very Low Carb Performance
Conventional wisdom says you need to eat carbs to exercise. As many know, that's not true. But how low carb can you go -- and are there even benefits from eating extremely low carb? Peter Attia is a medical doctor and an endurance athlete. He's learned from the world's biggest experts on keto-adaptation (such as Dr Stephen Phinney) and in the last few years he has relentlessly experimented on himself. Here Dr Attia shares his insights on very low carb (ketogenic) diets and physical and mental performance.
Jeff Volek - The Many Facets of Keto-Adaptation: Health, Performance, and Beyond
Obesity is a condition of excess fat accumulation in adipocytes where the person is literally stuck in storage mode diverting a disproportionate amount of calories into fat cells as opposed to oxidation. The most efficient approach to accelerate the body's ability to access and burn body fat is to restrict dietary carbohydrate while increasing fat intake for a period of several weeks - also known as keto-adaptation. In this lecture Dr. Volek also discusses the myths about the dangers of saturated fat intake, some clinical applications to low carb diets, ultra-endurance athlete applications, peak fat burning and oxygen consumption during endurance training, and the importance of a personalized approach to carbohydrate restriction.
