The Natural State with Dr. Anthony Gustin

May 28, 2018

Whether you're a competitive endurance athlete, biker, CrossFitter, or barely entering the fitness world, you've probably heard that the best way to fuel your body and speed up recovery is by loading up on carbs. 

You may have also been told that the source of those carbs doesn't matter, so you can indulge in pasta all you want. 

When Steph Lowe was doing long-cross triathlon a few years ago, she was told the same thing, but she refused to go with the flow. 

She believed there had to be a better way to increase performance and endurance without relying on sugar and processed foods. And she was right. 

After her own experience as an athlete, Steph Lowe became a sports nutritionist and founded The Natural Nutritionist, where she uses a LCHF ketogenic diet to help other athletes improve not only their performance, but also their blood sugar, metabolism, gut health, mental well-being, and much more. 

In this episode, she breaks down why athletes are harming their performance by relying on carbs, and how to make the switch to a ketogenic diet for better results.
