Peter Attia – Ketosis, Fat Loss, and Physical Performance

I ran across this video through a post written by Tim Ferriss last summer. This is basically the trigger that got me into studying ketogenic diets, nutrition, and biochemistry.

Ketogenic diets are those diets where people eat mostly fat (at least 60% of the total calories), moderate protein (10-30% of the total calories) and very little carbohydrates (less than 10%).

This type of diet is in total contradiction to the general medical guidelines, which recommend eating at least 50% of the total calories as carbohydrates, and the rest of 50% should be predominant in protein and low in fat.

However, the science behind and the experiments that people do by following keto-diets advocate for themselves.

Peter is an excellent speaker who can easily make you understand complex medical terms. He can even make it fun!

I find his rationale pretty unbiased. He’s been doing experiments on his body, the same way Tim Ferriss does. And the same way I ended up doing.

If you’ve enjoyed Peter’s presentation, you can find more about him on his blog The Eating Academy.

A recently released book that I’d recommend on ketogenic diets is Steve Phinney and Jeff Volek’s The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living.

      He was the one that got me into this as well. I’ve been inspired by his rigor and by the fact that he wants the have the whole picture as well as the details. And that he’s able to make them easily understandable for everyone with non-technical background.

      Thanks for stopping by Martin.
