Carbohydrate restriction is one cornerstone of the VESPA/OFM Program and this two book set provides the science of making that critical physiological shift to burning “fat as fuel” for sustainable high athletic and mental performance and lower oxidative stress & lactate load for dramatically improved recovery. Not only that but Vespa GM, Peter Defty, was an editor for both books and VESPA, OFM and select Vespa/OFM athletes are featured in the profiles section of “the Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance”. Carbohydrate restricted diets are commonly practiced but seldom taught. As a result, doctors, dietitians, nutritionists, and nurses may have strong opinions about low carbohydrate dieting, but in many if not most cases, these views are not grounded in science.
Now, two New York Times best-selling authors provide you with the definitive resource for low carbohydrate living.
Doctors Volek and Phinney share over 50 years of clinical experience using low carbohydrate diets, and together they have published more than 200 research papers and chapters on the topic. Particularly in the last decade, much has been learned about the risks associated with insulin resistance (including but not limited to metabolic syndrome, hypertension, and type-2 diabetes), and how this condition is far better controlled by carbohydrate restriction than with drugs.About the Authors:
