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.
