The six-time Kona champ adheres to a ketogenic diet, which is high in healthy fats, and low in simple carbohydrates. Scott breaks it down like this: About 60 percent of what he eats consists of omega-rich, good fats (seeds, nuts, olives, coconut oil, cold-water fish), 20–25 percent is protein, and the remainder consists of fiber-rich carbohydrates. After 3 to 4 weeks of following a ketogenic diet, the body begins burning body fat stores as its primary fuel, not carbohydrates. Scott also touts the benefits to healthy brain function.

I ran cross-country and track at St. Paul Highland Park Senior High for 4 years. Actually, I wasn’t allowed to officially run varsity track in ninth grade because the St. Paul City Council voted it down. As a freshman, I did run the mile in 4:37 and the two mile in 9:55 in nonconference meets. My best times for the mile and two mile were 4:22 and 9:26.
