020: Danny Vega - Keto Counterculture / Fat Fueled Family

November 23, 2018 / by Scott

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 a 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.

  • 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!
