DH Kiefer came on and we had an awesome conversation. Kiefer’s books ““The Carb Nite Solution: The Physicist’s Guide to Power Dieting” and “Carb Backloading: Manual for Total Bodyfat control” outline the strategic use of carbohydrates within a low-carb high-fat diet as a tool for sparking certain hormonal cascades to affect body composition and health. His protocols involve cutting carbohydrates out of the diet, and only utilizing them selectively at key times to maximize their benefits and minimize their many drawbacks.

Kiefer and I talked about the benefits of ultra low carb living, the function of carbohydrates, the optimal strategic use of carbs within a ketogenic or low carb framework, problems and limitations with paleo dogma, ultra low-carb training, nutrient timing, importance of flexibility in diet, his new product that boosts insulin without the negative effects of high carb intake, and much more.
