Can fat be used as a fuel in world class athletic performance? How can you use science to yield actual results in sports while sifting through intellectual dishonesty and confirmation bias in nutrition studies? This hard hitting and extremely powerful podcast grounded in realism with what actually works while not being stuck in dogmatic thinking.

Bio: Peter promotes fat adapted training and takes science and makes it happen. He’s a triathlete and ultra-endurance coach of coaches for more than 2 decades and coached world class athletes such as Zach Bitter, Timothy Olson and many more. He also works with scientists like Dr. Stephen Phinney & Dr. Jeff Volek who published the FASTER Study (FASTER=Fat-Adapted-Substrate oxidation in-Trained-Elite-Runners) in 2013.
