Peter Defty describes himself as an empiricist who takes the science research and makes it work in the real world.
He is a coach of coaches who has been working in the ultra endurance arena for close to 20 years. He took up running at the age of 40, and discovered that there seemed to be a fundamental flaw in the way people train and run distances. His first exposure to marathon distances showed him that perhaps carbs aren’t the best way to go about fueling for big races.
At that point, he was hooked on how he could improve his performance (and other’s) by becoming fat adapted and utilizing the large fuel source available and avoiding the dreaded “bonk” that happens around mile 18 of every marathon.
Peter is a wealth of information, thoughtful, and is very interested in getting the word out about how keto can help athletic performance. Danny and I had a great time talking to him, and I know you’re going to enjoy listening to him.
Peter continues to work to change the current “gotta have carbs” paradigm with world-class and elite athletes. If you’d like to learn more about Peter, you can find out more here (vespapower.com)
