Intro to Strict Ketosis, Keto Running, and an Interview with Ken Niemimaa

February 2, 2018

Month two of a deep dive into the keto diet kicks off with a look at going into strict ketosis – eating under 25 grams of carbs a day, increasing quality fat intake, and getting in lots of greens. In conjunction with entering ketosis for the month, the guys talk about how to kick off a month of running while in ketosis, and the unique challenges keto running presents. Why a month of running? Because Alex and Rick welcome their first guest to the show – ultra runner Ken Niemimaa who joins The Paul Project to talk about his 11th annual February (Run Every Day) Challenge, where he challenges people to pick a distance and then get outside for 28 days in a row to run it! #noyimmyyammy

Some of the topics discussed:

  • What’s the February (Run Every Day) Challenge and how do you take part?
  • Is the keto diet complicated?
  • What can a runner expect while in ketosis?
  • How can you get your kids involved in helping you eat keto?
  • What’s a keto flu, how long does it last, and why does it happen?
  • Is fasting necessary on keto?
  • How can you manage eating at a restaurant while in ketosis?
