    This episode is all about being a fat adapted athlete and high performer following a meat based flexible ketogenic diet! Fat adapted ultra marathon runner Zach Bitter broke the 100-mile world record with a time of 11:19:13, beating the previous mark by almost 10 minutes!

    The 33-year-old has been the American record holder for the past six years after running a time of 11:40:55 at the Desert Solstice Invitational. Bitter celebrated accordingly with a buffet of cheese.. "I’m incredibly fortunate to be a stepping stone on the path to discovering how fast a human can cover 100 miles. Stay patient, stay focused, and most of all NEVER doubt what you are capable of doing when you set your mind to it."

    Zach is an extreme endurance athlete and coach with a focus on ultra-marathon foot races. He is a 3x National Champion (2x 50 Mile Road, 1x 100km Road), and has represented Team USA at the World 100km Championships on three occasions.

    Prior to beginning a ketogenic diet you should undergo a health screening with your physician to confirm that a ketogenic diet is suitable for you and to rule out any conditions and contraindications that may pose risks or are incompatible with a ketogenic diet, including by way of example: conditions affecting the kidneys, liver or pancreas; muscular dystrophy; pregnancy; breast-feeding; being underweight; eating disorders; any health condition that requires a special diet [other conditions or contraindications]; hypoglycemia; or type 1 diabetes. A ketogenic diet may or may not be appropriate if you have type 2 diabetes, so you must consult with your physician if you have this condition. Anyone under the age of 18 should consult with their physician and their parents or legal guardian before beginning such a diet].
