fat utilization in a keto-adapted athlete

Keto-adapted, what does it mean?

New post by Jacob Wilson aka “The Muscle Prof”


Day Four of The Muscle Professor Academy touches on the topic of Keto-adaptation. Being Keto-adapted leads to different benefits for athletes

What does it mean to be keto-adapted? Keto adaptation occurs when your body switches from carbohydrates to fat and ketones as its primary source of fuel. This means that instead of carbohydrates, specifically glucose, feeding the body fat is broken down into alternative fuel sources to replace the need for carbohydrates.

In this study we see that athletes that are keto-adapted have a much higher…

Carb Refeed when doing a Ketogenic Diet?

Carb Refeed is one of the predominant terms used against ketogenic athletes, people say you need carb to do endurance or any kind of exercise, but is this true?

New post by Jacob Wilson aka “The Muscle Prof”

Do you Need to Carb up on a ketogenic diet? The answer is NO! In this study 22 elite athletes on either a high carb diet (50 % of calories) or a ketogenic diet (Carbs only 5-10 % of calories) performed a long duration endurance event meant to deplete muscle carbohydrate stores (glycogen).

After exercise subjects…
