What is OFM?

 

What are the benefits of OFM?

OFM is based on biological & evolutionary science, not upon today’s media driven “sound-bite” science. Many aspects of OFM are initially counter-intuitive and contradict the simplistic reductionist “group-think” mentality regarding fat , health and performance, yet deliver real world results for athletes of all ages and abilities across sports. OFM is an outgrowth of VESPA’s commitment to our customers.

OFM works with your body’s natural physiology
Improved Physical Performance
Faster recovery
Improved body composition; i.e. ratio of lean body mass
Improved health
Improved Mental focus/Motor skills/Coordination & Emotional Stability
Feasibility & Metabolic Flexibility: It’s a LOT easier than most people think
Greater Caloric Efficiency
Carbohydrates have a much stronger, more sustainable effect using less
No bonking
Elimination of intestinal issue in most athletes

 

What is OFM?

OFM stands for Optimised Fat Metabolism . OFM resets the body back to burning “fat as fuel” the way Nature intended, even at aerobic levels of exercise which are much higher than the current science says is possible but consistent with the emerging science on fat adaptation. Once an athlete is adapted, OFM actually enhances strategic carbohydrate use so now carbohydrates work like they never worked before, using less.

OFM works! We pioneered the modern fat adapted performance movement by consistently obtaining the “game-changing” performance results and health benefits gained by getting the body back to its natural state of using “fat as your fuel” for aerobic metabolism.  Emerging science from the FASTER Study  and other studies is confirming what VESPA athletes already know; that fat metabolism plays a much larger role than previously thought possible and actually helps make carbohydrate use more powerful and sustainable.

OFM is highly individualized and not a “one size fits all” structured program. OFM empowers the athlete with the information, scientific basis, and real world application so each athlete can integrate OFM into their daily life by making achievable changes based upon each athlete’s unique situation. OFM is an integrated, multi-faceted “big picture” approach to performance and health and not another “diet & exercise” program.

The premise behind it all…

Simply put, the human body is designed to perform optimally using “fat as your fuel” for aerobic performance. This is why humans carry large stores of fat and very limited stores of glycogen. Look in the mirror and you will see…. .why not optimise utilisation of “fat as fuel”? Even the leanest athlete carries more than enough “on-board” fat calories to run a 100 kilometers, cycle a double century or complete an Ironman. Think of it this way; Fat is your aerobic energy source and glycogen/glucose is your “fight or flight” fuel. So, unless your event is the 100 meter dash or Olympic powerlifting, focusing on optimising fat metabolism via OFM needs to be a fundamental part of your program.

The OFM Pyramid

The OFM Pyramid is great tool so the athlete can understand the complex, highly inter-related aspects of the OFM Program in an intuitive way which allows each athlete to create their own personalized OFM program around their individual needs and situation rather than force them into a “one size fits all” program.

This not only achieves results but makes the OFM program feasible on a long-term sustainable level. When an athlete achieves “The Zen of OFM” OFM becomes effortless and intuitive because not only has the body made the physiological shifts but the behavioral changes that foster consistent optimal performance and health.

The OFM Pyramid is broken down into 7 fundamental elements which combine to form the OFM Program. Each element is broken down further into related sub-sections. Every sub-section is intricately interwoven with the others and important in gaining your VESPA fueled performance potential. The pinnacle is OFM, what we term “The Zen of OFM”, however, it is first necessary to start with a solid foundation, the “Fat-Adapted” Metabolic State.
