Today we revisit episode 031 with Dr. Dom D'Agostino.   We dive into whether or not the Ketogenic Diet will help athletes workout more effectively.  

Dr. Dominic “Dom” D'Agostino is a Professor in the Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology at the University of South Florida. He joins Drew to discuss how athletes can obtain peak performance and resilience through nutrition and a ketogenic diet. As a Senior Research Scientist at the Florida Institute for Human & Machine Cognition, Dr. D'Agostino focuses on developing and testing metabolic therapies using a ketogenic diet and supplements. He enjoys working out and bodybuilding, so he knows first-hand how effective this therapy can be.

 

Key Takeaways:

[1:09:20] Our brains and cells are already hardwired to use ketones as an energy source.

[1:15:54] If a person does eat a ‘treat’ food, what can they do to minimize the impacts of glucose?

[1:21:20] Why aren’t you studying the microbiome?
