Hosted by
Scott & Don

Christopher Kelly, a professional endurance mountain biker, joins The Nation to explain how his dependance on sugar and carbohydrates began causing him some health issues including pre-diabetic blood sugar levels.  After listening to his busy physicians he took control of his health and began learning everything he could.  He then began a diet reset that evolved into a high fat and lower carbohydrate lifestyle.  He compares his experience with our co=host, Zach Bitter and the benefits they have seen.

  • Who was wearing their Suunto during the recording? I kept looking at my wrist while listening to the podcast.

    • I’m not sure. Both Don and I have Garmin Fenix 5x. We didn’t have Christopher on video. It might have been Zach?

  • […] Trail Runner Nation brought on Christopher Kelly to discuss his transition to a high fat, low carb diet and what that did for his training/lifestyle. Chris is a very smart sounding British guy; the accent gets me every time! I will say that this podcast starts out a little slow: during the first 10 minutes or so I had no idea what they were talking about. But it did get better and I walked away with a new appreciation for the fat-adaption ideology. Guest star Zach Bitter also adds a wealth of knowledge to the conversation. He seems like he has his dietary regimen pretty dialed in. Finally, to really hook you parents out there, Chris talks about how his daughter has never had a sip of cow milk! And she is still being breast fed at 3.5 years old. Learn why by checking out the podcast here: Trail Runner Nation Interview with Christopher Kelly. […]

  • Just listening to this now. Kelly is describing me. I had no idea until a heart attack almost took my life last year that I was pre-diabetic. I will try to connect with him on his website. Thanks, guys, as always for having such helpful guests!
