A recent lecture by Dr. Jeff Volek on the subject of a ketogenic diet both for health and also athletic performance. Volek has been a leader in conducting studies with ultra-endurance athletes (like Tim Olsen, Zach Bitter and Mike Morton—all holder of various ultra-running records) who have used low-carb diets to upregulate fat burning metabolism. As Volek details in the talk, in his F.A.S.T.E.R. studies they recorded record fat-burning rates.

Newsworthy is how nutritional ketosis research has vectored into longevity and epigenetic signaling. Volek reports on this new and truly interesting material.
