I think the biggest benefits for me were steady energy all day and no food cravings at all. I ate when I was hungry, which was two to four times a day, and I really didn’t crave anything while on the boat. And we rowed up to 21 hours per day each, with an average of 12 to 14 hours per day.

Husband and wife break records completing the Great Pacific Race in only 45 days fueled by a High Fat Diet to raise awareness and raise funds against sugar.
 

In early August, Silicon Valley entrepreneur and endurance athlete Sami Inkinen, 38, and his wife, Meredith Loring, 34, finished the Great Pacific Race by rowing from California to Hawaii.

It took them 45 days to complete the journey, making them the fastest pair to ever row across the Pacific, the first couple to row from Monterey, California, to Honolulu, and Inkinen, who is originally from Finland, the first Finnish person to row across any ocean.Inkinen and Loring rowed across the Pacific to bring awareness to the dangers of a diet high in sugar and carbohydrates and to espouse the benefits of a high fat diet. They decided to fuel themselves with a high fat diet during the journey; obtaining a majority of their calories from fat, some protein, and limited carbohydrates, as new research is suggesting that high fat, low carbohydrate diets may actually be the healthiest way to eat after all.

Although Inkinen and Loring had limited rowing experience, they were able to complete a journey that proved a miserable failure for many other racers, and in doing so they were able to raise more than $200,000 for a cause close to them: bringing awareness to the dangers people face by eating diets high in sugar and simple carbohydrates, which has been linked to diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
