Fat adaptation is the metabolic reorchestration from a predominant fuel source of glucose to a predominant fuel source of fat. This is the normal, preferred metabolic state of the human. Before the food pyramid created the obesity epidemic, humans were in a constant yearly cycle of fat adaptation, based on factors such location, climate, season and food supply. The inability to tap into fat reserves is what causes a ‘nutritional bonk’ or ‘hitting the wall’. If you’re an endurance athlete whose splits just get slower and slower during a marathon off the bike or ultra-marathon, you becoming fat adapted means you will never run out of fuel, and you will completely transform your endurance potential.
