180 Nutrition -The Health Sessions.

#39 We chat to Sami Inkinen, a world class triathlete and tech entrepreneur. Whilst we don't encourage anyone to eat 5000 calories of saturated fat a day, we feel it's a very important message that Sami shares with us.

Sami and his wife recently did a phenomenal achievement, where they physically rowed from California to Hawaii. It took them 45 days straight rowing, up to 18 hours a day, and some days they didn't even get any sleep.

Awesome achievement, but more importantly was the message behind it, as they did it without the use of any sugar and sports gels, pushing the message that you don't need sugar to power the body daily, not even as a world-class athlete like that.

So they did it running on, yes, about 70 to 75 percent fat on each meal, and we were very keen to get him on the show and pick his brains about this, because there are so many things we can learn from it. 

In this episode we talk about:

  • How he ended up being involved in the documentary Cereal Killers Two
  • Why he decided to embark on his toughest challenge yet, rowing to Hawaii from San Francisco
  • How they prepared for their meals. Sami was eating a whopping 8,000 calories a day!
  • The effects of eating 5000 calories of saturated fat a day whilst rowing
  • What he uses instead of sports drinks
  • What Sami eats in a typical day
  • And much much more…
