Peter Attia – An Advantaged Metabolic State: Human Performance, Resilience & Health

From one of my HBG “heros” Dr. Peter Attia, the author of the blog The Eating Academy and President of NuSI (the Nutrition Science Initiative)

Peter Attia – An Advantaged Metabolic State: Human Performance, Resilience & Health – YouTube

Peter Attia is a relentless self-experimenter, obsessed with the idea of a “quantified self.” In the presentation he will share two components of his physical transformation as he evolved from “fit but fat and metabolically deranged” to “fit, lean, and metabolically dialed in.” In particular, Peter will focus on the possible advantages of a ketogenic diet, and in the process share much of what he’s learned implementing it in himself and hundreds of others over the past two years.

Peter is the President and co-founder of the Nutrition Science Initiative (NuSI), a California-based 501(c)(3). Peter is also a physician and former McKinsey & Company consultant, where he was a member of both the corporate risk and healthcare practices. Prior to his time at McKinsey, Peter spent five years at the Johns Hopkins Hospital as a general surgery resident, where he was the recipient of several prestigious awards and the author of a comprehensive review of general surgery. Peter also spent two years at the National Institutes of Health as a surgical oncology fellow at the National Cancer Institute under Dr. Steve Rosenberg, where his research focused on the role of regulatory T cells in cancer regression and other immune-based therapies for cancer.

Peter is a 2012/2013 recipient of the French-American Foundation Young Leader’s Fellowship, which recognizes the most promising leaders under 40. Peter earned his M.D. from Stanford University and holds a B.Sc. in mechanical engineering and applied mathematics from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, where he also taught and helped design the calculus curriculum.

On Diet

The other day I was watching Morning Joe (like I do every morning) and one of the guests was David H. Freedman who was there to talk about his just published article in Atlantic…

Falling Off The Wagon

Low Carb Confidential’s written a good essay about what is essentially “falling off the (ketosis) wagon“: Anatomy of a Failure: Recovering from a Dieting Disaster | Low Carb Confidential

I understand the sentiment, thinking, and circumstances all too well.

A good ride on my default route tonight. I’m think I ride best in the heat. I’m thinking I get lose a lot easier in the heat.

The 7 Minute Workout (HICT)

The Scientific 7-Minute Workout –

Exercise science is a fine and intellectually fascinating thing. But sometimes you just want someone to lay out guidelines for how to put the newest fitness research into practice.

An article in the May-June issue of the American College of Sports Medicine’s Health & Fitness Journal does just that. In 12 exercises deploying only body weight, a chair and a wall, it fulfills the latest mandates for high-intensity effort, which essentially combines a long run and a visit to the weight room into about seven minutes of steady discomfort — all of it based on science.

“There’s very good evidence” that high-intensity interval training provides “many of the fitness benefits of prolonged endurance training but in much less time,” says Chris Jordan, the director of exercise physiology at the Human Performance Institute in Orlando, Fla., and co-author of the new article.

Work by scientists at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, and other institutions shows, for instance, that even a few minutes of training at an intensity approaching your maximum capacity produces molecular changes within muscles comparable to those of several hours of running or bike riding.

Interval training, though, requires intervals; the extremely intense activity must be intermingled with brief periods of recovery. In the program outlined by Mr. Jordan and his colleagues, this recovery is provided in part by a 10-second rest between exercises. But even more, he says, it’s accomplished by alternating an exercise that emphasizes the large muscles in the upper body with those in the lower body. During the intermezzo, the unexercised muscles have a moment to, metaphorically, catch their breath, which makes the order of the exercises important.

The exercises should be performed in rapid succession, allowing 30 seconds for each, while, throughout, the intensity hovers at about an 8 on a discomfort scale of 1 to 10, Mr. Jordan says. Those seven minutes should be, in a word, unpleasant. The upside is, after seven minutes, you’re done.
