Fat Fueled and Faith Empowered with Danny Vega

Danny Vega joins us for this week's episode, where we talk about a range of topics. In this show, we go deep into Danny's faith and the path that God has set him on, and what he currently doing. Danny is passionate about biblical manhood and family leadership, and we have a great discussion on these topics.

Danny is a well-known influencer in the Keto and Carnivore community, so I had to pick his brain on all things keto as well as get his take on intermittent fasting. We cover mental clarity, the best ways to fast, and the wrong way to do intermittent fasting, which was eye-opening. Danny pulls back the curtains on what its like to be an influencer and also reveals what's next for he and his family. 

A native of Miami, Florida, Danny received his bachelor’s degree from Columbia University in 2004 where he played football. He then earned a Master of Science in Human Performance from the University of Florida, where he worked with the national championship men’s basketball team. In 2006, Danny became the Strength & Conditioning coordinator for VCU basketball, helping the Rams become the 2007 conference champions. Danny was also a top ranked power lifter and indoor rower. 

He called himself a Christian since 1996, but since 2020 he realized he was not on the narrow path. In November 2021 he had an encounter with the All Mighty that renewed his faith & walk with our Creator—and since then he‘s learned that a lack of obedience & not walking in the spirit is what has plagued the modern church, and why it lacks fruit. It’s his mission to spread this message & wake the church out of its collective spiritual coma however the Father chooses to use him! He lives in Tampa with his wife Maura & two sons, Desmond and Dean.
