The Carnivore Cast is a podcast focused on the carnivore diet and lifestyle with practical advice from successful carnivores, citizen scientists, and top researchers answering your burning questions and meaty topics. 

Nov 19, 2018

Danny Vega (@KetoCounterCulture  / FatFueledFamily) is an expert in strength, conditioning, and performance, and how to apply nutrition to optimize all of these. I’ve been following Danny for years and I would describe him as a jacked, wise, considerate, and generous philosopher-king of keto. Danny has an MS in Human Performance from the University of Florida. His passions include ketogenic and carnivore dieting, strength and conditioning, stoicism, libertarianism, and of course, raising his sons Dean and Desmond in a holistic way with his equally amazing wife Maura.


Danny and I dive into:

  • How he got into keto and sharing his story through social media
  • Keto for strength training vs. endurance
  • Moving from keto to carnivore and back
  • Flexibility around adding small amounts of carbs for performance
  • Keto/carnivore for body composition and hypertrophy training
  • His daily diet
  • Keto/low carb for kids
  • Fasting
  • Fat vs. protein
  • The value of experimenting vs. consistency
  • Loving what you do and leaving your day job
  • And much more!
