Ketosis And Athletic Performance: More Than Fat Loss

The above video is a presentation by Peter Attia, M.D. His talk is somewhat technical, but I always write blog posts hoping 20,000 people will *love* them, not that 1,000,000 will *like* them. In this presentation, you will learn (in my words, not Pete’s): – More about nutrition than most MDs learn in med school. – How ketosis-adapted performance can aid fat loss and high-altitude resilience. – Why the calorie estimates on treadmills and stationary bikes are complete BS. – The three primary systems of energy production and basic organic chemistry, both of which aid understanding of all athletics. Even if you struggle a little with vocabulary, the first 30 minutes are well worth watching a few times. This talk made me immediately want to jump back on the Cyclical (or “Cyclic”) Ketogenic Diet (CKD), which was conceptually introduced to me in 1996-1998 by the writing of Lyle McDonald, Dr. Mauro Di Pasquale, and the late Dan Duchaine. It’s incredible for simultaneous fat loss and lean muscle gain, though perhaps needlessly complicated for non-athletes. I usually limited the carb-reloading period to 12-18 hours after a glycogen depletion workout on Saturdays, though I ex Continue reading >>

    Whilst training glucose is needed for anaerobic resp, esp if going higher (eg 15-20) reps.
    The only way to obtain the glucose is from conversion of amino's, correct??
    In which case bcaa's are essential pre workout whilst on keto?? (especially so when studies suggest oxidation of only bcaa's appears to be increased when in catabolic state).
    This is based on keto with no re-feeds.

    i always sip 5g bcaa, 10l-glut 1g vit c whilst training, however i never really go above 8 reps, compounds only 5-6 reps.
    then 15g bcaa, 10 l-gult and 2g vit c sipped between meals.
    my strength has went up on keto, but i think you defo have a point as i tried 1 session of higher reps 10-15 last session on much lower weight and still strggled to get past 12 reps

    A Ketogenic Diet is a muscle-sparing fat-loss diet that works by forcing the body into ketosis through carbohydrate deprivation. Ketosis is a state where the body converts fat into ketones that the body can use for fuel when glucose (carbohydrates) are in short supply. It's metabolic trickery that has some major advantages over a regular, carb-based diets.
