Back in 2016, Danny Vega was a carb-fueled powerlifter. He ate and trained according to conventional wisdom, but he started to notice he didn’t feel his best. After his cheat days turned into cheat weekends and his health began to suffer, he decided to ditch conventional advice and try a ketogenic diet. But he didn’t go at it alone. He and his wife Maura wanted to adopt a healthier lifestyle as a family, so they began teaching their two sons about nutrition, keto, and healthy habits. Danny’s children had always been homeschooled, so he and his wife were used to giving them a hands-on education. It was no different when it came to nutrition. They gradually worked their way from drive-thru meals and Wendy’s hamburger patties to healthy amounts of meat and low carb veggies. Getting healthier as a family is challenging, especially when eating out and buying processed snacks is much more convenient. Danny and Maura learned a lot along the way, and that’s why in today’s episode I’m sitting down with Danny to talk about their journey. Danny is a powerlifter, father, and co-host of The Ketogenic Athlete podcast. He received his Masters of Science in Human Performance from the University of Florida and he’s a former Strength and Conditioning coach. In our chat, we dive into how to teach children about food, how to get your family on board with healthy habits, how Danny trains now that he’s fat-adapted, and a lot more. We go over: How Danny first discovered the ketogenic diet How Danny felt after starting a keto diet as a powerlifter Everything he and his wife did to gradually improve their sons’ diets The problem with kids’ menus Why children should be eating the same foods as healthy adults How modern diets contribute to insulin resistance in children Why it’s important that children reset their hunger and palate when transitioning to eating real food Why changing a kid’s palate is difficult — and how to make it happen Why hyperpalatable foods are problematic How Danny’s kids eat now Why you should avoid forcing vegetables on children Why Danny and his wife homeschool their kids How to find social groups for homeschooled children How to teach your kids about movement Why Danny and his wife don’t put screen limitations on their children What the Montessori teaching method is The multiple problems with traditional education Why tailored education matters How Danny and Maura teach their children about money management, entrepreneurship, and building character Why Danny went carnivore What SuperStarch is and how it can help fat-adapted powerlifters The new training style Danny is following

Prof. Eran Segal presented conclusions from the research on the TEDxRuppin stage and made us question common dietary beliefs. For additional information see http://genie.weizmann.ac.il New research led by Prof. Eran Segals and Dr. Elinavs research unit indicates a drastic change in blood sugar levels between two individuals on identical diets - this may explain why some struggle to lose weight while others, on the same diet, stay lean and fit. The scientists even developed an algorithm that can calculate ones blood level based on his or her biology and lifestyle. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
Knowing all about healthy diet and nutrition is one thing but how do you take all that you learn and apply it to yourself and your own family, especially when it comes to raising your children in a healthy way? This podcast talks about incorporating routines, training and a healthy diet into your family as a whole.
🔴BIO: Danny and Maura Vega are Miami natives who now reside in Tampa, Florida. Danny was the starting runningback for his high school football team and led the county in rushing yards. He went on to receive his bachelor's degree from Columbia University in 2004, where he was a member of the football team. After college, he pursued his Master's of Science at the University of Florida, where he worked with the national championship men's basketball team, women's basketball, tennis and golf. He then went on to become the Strength and Conditioning coordinator for VCU basketball, helping the Rams win the 2007 conference championship.
Maura had a passion for dance since she was a young girl. She is classically trained in ballet, jazz, and contemporary. After high school she found herself struggling with her weight, and spent the next several years restricting food and even went as far as trying out a plant based diet for the sole purpose of "being skinny." A ketogenic lifestyle has not only freed her of her disordered eating, but she has also found relief from severe postpartum depression and anxiety.
These days, Maura and Danny can be found spending most of their time with their two boys. They have a unique way of thinking when it comes to children, and how to raise them. They unschool both of their boys who are also now following a ketogenic diet. Both boys have found relief from allergies and autoimmune issues with a ketogenic diet. They hope to inspire and change the way we see and treat children, and also how we feed them.
