The Ketogenic diet for endurance athletes – podcast

There’s a diet for everyone these days, and health-conscious consumers are constantly testing out different eating habits. When it comes to athletes, there are serious considerations to think about when it comes to energy, preserving fat stores, boosting endurance and staying in shape. The Ketogenic diet has been in the spotlight in recent years with proven benefits. However, a sound understanding of how ketosis occurs in the body is essential for understanding the fine balance of the Ketogenic diet.

Ongoing research has generated awareness about the Ketogenic diet’s benefit for endurance athletes in particular. Charlotte Bastiaanse, associate editor at Vitafoods Insights, talks to Dr Stephen Burns, associate professor at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, about the construction of a Keto diet, the science behind ketosis and the benefit for athletes.
