With the 100-Mile American Record already under his belt (for 5+ years), ultra endurance athlete Zach Bitter just outdid himself on August 25th, 2019.

He crushed the 100-Mile World Record, setting a 6:48-mile pace and besting the previous world record by nearly 10 minutes.

Zach is notable for his low-carb, high-fat, animal-based lifestyle as a professional endurance athlete. He first transitioned to the ketogenic diet during an off-season, and immediately felt his sleep, energy, and recovery improve.

By developing a flexible, fat-adapted metabolism, he's able to tactically use carbs to maximize racing performance.

In this episode, Geoff & Zack discuss:

· Zack's 100 Mile World Record, his mental game during racing, and why he got into ultra-endurance sport

· LCHF diets for therapeutic cases vs. performance cases...does an athlete have more "leeway" with eating carbohydrates?

· Carnivore diet for leaky gut & autoimmune issues
