“You guys are leading the science” are the precise words of Jeff Volek RD/PhD when he was first revealing the data from the FASTER Study at a conference in 2014.
In March of 2015, “Metabolic Characteristics of Keto-Adapted Ultra-Endurance Runners” was published, and a seismic shift in metabolic science occurred because never before had a study demonstrated that humans were capable of metabolizing fat at such high rates and intensities.
This resulted in a paradigm-shift in the science of human metabolism and performance, which many are still trying to wrap their heads around and a few remain critical of.
Performance level fat adaptation was and is created in the field of competition rather than in the lab. As I’ve said before, “The data corroborates the experience. It doesn’t drive it.”
Years before FASTER, the LCD Cohort participants were training, competing and winning by following the OFM protocols, including using VESPA. How do I know this? I personally helped virtually every one of the fat adapted athletes in the study to become fat adapted.
Science Not Voodoo
My work was actually first recognized by Dr.’s Volek & Phinnney back in 2010 and subsequently profiled in their 2012 book, “The Art & Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance”.
What is more important is this: the athletes we work with, my Team and I continue to develop this ‘Disruptive Technology’ each and every day. Our testing ground is the real world of everyday life so we can create individualized and doable strategies that work for YOU!
The Benefits of Fat Adaptation
By focusing on optimizing fat metabolism, not only do humans perform better across all metrics of performance, but more importantly, you achieve optimal metabolic health which:
- Maintains a healthy weight and lean body composition.
- Goes a long way in preventing chronic diseases like Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease and many forms of cancers.
- Dramatically reduces inflammation.
- Optimizes native immune system.
- Puts your body in the best position to fend off any virus as I outline in this vlog.
- Reduces oxidative stress to a minimum to slow the aging process to a crawl.
- Maintains optimal hormonal health and balance.
Science is catching up
Leading change is never easy. We've been ridiculed, opposed and dismissed.
But science is catching up and moving in the direction we've always been going. Is it perfect? By nature, innovation is partly about making mistakes and detours precisely to find optimal solutions. It’s a process I’ve been on personally for the past 21 years and professionally for the past 15 years.
That experience will fast track your journey to avoid many of the common misconceptions and pitfalls which occur because of focus on the tools like diet, exercise, supplements, medication, meditation etc. OFM, on the other hand, focuses on YOU, the individual.
So ask yourself, who do you want to follow and align yourself with? Those leading the science or those following it?
