Please join me in welcoming Dr. Ian Lake! Dr. Lake is a medical doctor and type 1 diabetic who ran 5 marathons while fasting for 5 days. He ran a total of 100 miles in 5 days! Dr. Lake’s main goal was to show how nutritional ketosis can be safe for type 1 diabetics.

Keep in mind that to accomplish this dangerous and amazing feat, Dr. Lake trained his body in many different ways. Taking something like this lightly could have been deadly.

A type 1 diabetic can not produce insulin in enough volume to maintain blood sugar. This is very different from type 2 diabetes. People with type 2 diabetes have more than enough insulin and often have too much, leading to insulin resistance.

Dr. Lake explains that our bodies can multifuel, which means we can use sugars and fats for energy. In an ideal situation, our bodies can flip between whatever fuel they need. To burn fat as fuel, your insulin has to be low.

Dr. Lake lost over a pound of fat per day during his 5-day fast. To prepare for a longer fast, you have to become fat-adapted. You must lower insulin to adapt your body to running on fat fuel. To lower insulin, lower the food that stimulates insulin—carbohydrates.

Diabetic ketoacidosis is a dangerous condition associated with type 1 diabetes. Ketoacidosis occurs when sugar in the blood can not get inside of the cells, starving them of energy. Some medical professionals believe that ketosis can put you at risk for ketoacidosis, but other doctors are against this idea.

Dr. Lake currently follows the keto diet, leaning more towards the carnivore diet. His diet consists of about 100 grams of protein per day, dairy, and some leafy greens.
