There is a reason why elite athletes are now jumping on the ketogenic bandwagon. Unlike weekend warriors or casual exercisers, elite athletes are extremely tuned into their bodies. In other words, they definitely notice the way different diets affect the body. One such athlete is Gabrielle Reece. Gabby is known for her accomplishments as an elite athlete, mother, author and leader in the fitness industry.
I recently talked with Gabby about the ketogenic diet. She has discovered what many elite fitness experts are noticing: If you eat fat before a workout, body fat is burned more efficiently and endurance and performance are increased.
Needless to say, she is fired-up on this topic and is passionately working with the Laird SuperFood team to research and develop products that may help induce ketogenesis. See our ketogenic blogs for some recent science and information on this revolutionary way of eating. KetogenicDiet Part I, PartII & PartIII.
