Ketosis, Fat Adaptation and how it affects your Glycogen

In this interview with Mike Mutzel, I discuss real world fat-adaptation and how everything changes with performance fat adaptation. Some key points:   I stress individuality and how one size does not  fit all when it comes to sports nutrition.The best level of Ketones probably are sub-clinical for athletes  Beta-oxidation is actually the principle energy pathway […]

Your Natural Physiology – The Key to Boundless Energy

In this video I discuss how Vespa works with your Natural Physiology to unlock the boundless energy stored in your body without concentrated sugar and carbs, which can cause inflammation and a host of health challenges for athletes. Watch the video and read the article on why this is working for hundreds of athletes: Your Natural […]

The Holy Grail of Health and Performance – 3 Key Principles

Immediately after bonking at my first marathon back in 2000 my fat adaptation journey started with a simple question…”What were the evolutionary pressures which shaped us as humans?” ‘Primitive’ Man, did not have a bowl of oatmeal, then grab a couple of gels before he went hunting. His and his tribe’s lives depended upon mental and […]

OFM and the Mitochondria Performance Advantage

Mitochondria are literally your cell’s energy powerhouse. This is where ATP is produced. On a cellular level, the more your cells contain, the larger they are, the more capacity your body has to train, compete, and remain healthy & robust.  OFM provides a “Mitochondrial Advantage” in numerous ways. Fat-Adapted Metabolic State: Simply put, a molecule of fatty […]

Fat as Fuel – Understanding How Cholesterol Really Works

The fundamental shift to “Fat as fuel” provided by Vespa’s OFM protocol makes for an equally fundamental shift in physiology. In so many metrics of health and performance Vespa/OFM athletes simply do not fall into the normal parameters. One particular area is Cholesterol / Lipids. Because Cholesterol is a form of  FAT and is the […]

Results Driven, Nature Based, Science Backed

Are YOU wanting RESULTS or are you waiting for the Science? In the end, results matter and why OFM is the de facto leader in fat-adapted performance. OFM even “leads the science” by pioneering fat adapted performance long before it became published science. In fact, OFM Athletes made up the LCD Cohort in the ground-breaking […]

What is OFM (Optimized Fat Metabolism)?

OFM stands for Optimized Fat Metabolism . OFM essentially resets the body back to burning “fat as fuel” for most of the aerobic spectrum, because 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 […]
