VESPA is an integral part of the OFM protocol. Observationally, VESPA plays a central role in driving high level fat metabolism but also allows athletes to take greater advantage of the carbohydrates they use in the diet and during fueling for endurance sports and yield the winning/record setting results and PR/PB’s performances VESPA/OFM athletes are experiencing.
Our speculation is VESPA keeps the athlete “locked into” high level fat metabolism even when concentrated carbohydrates are introduced back into the diet and during fueling and the high insulin sensitivity gained from the physiological shift to the “Fat-Adapted metabolic State” allows the carbs to be quickly and sustainably be converted to energy for only the very peak part of the aerobic spectrum and any surges into the anaerobic spectrum of metabolism.
Performance is only half of the story. Using VESPA and OFM these same athletes experience greater health, less injury and are better able to handle the training and competing loads.
Because VESPA drives high level fat metabolism, many athletes have also successfully used VESPA to “jump start” their fat metabolism as they transition off of carbohydrate dependency.
