This week we have Panos Papadiamantis, co-founder of PNOE, a mobile breath analyzer used for cardio pulmonary metabolic testing. That's a fancy way of saying the it's a mask that you strap over your mouth and nose to measure the gases you exhale and determine the mix of O2 and CO2 to determine how much fat and glycogen your body is burning. Panos is going to help us understand how it works and what the advantage of a mobile device like PNOE is over testing in a lab.

In endurance sports, he or she who can go fastest from point A to B wins, right? The operative word in that sentence is 'endurance'. If we're talking about an event of greater than 2 hours and you are truly racing, you are using a limited energy resource of carbohydrate, which is stored as glycogen in your muscles and liver.
Just like you wouldn't start a road trip without knowing how much gas you have in the tank or what your gas mileage is, you want to know at what rate you burn glycogen. Don't guess. You will burn glycogen at an increasing rate at increasing intensities. You want to know either when you are going to run out, or what amount of carbohydrate you need to consume to not run out.
Panos Papadiamantis has some pretty impressive degrees and has a great accent. Let's get into the interview and we'll chat about it a bit when we come back.

Bill and Khem, did you guys see people doing demos of PNOE in Kona? It really turned heads in Kona. I can only imagine how many heads would turn if someone saw me running down the street here in Highlands Ranch.
It will be interesting to see what coaches offer PNOE here. We're going to have Bob Seebohar back on the show in a few weeks to talk about Birota Foods and we'll have to ask him if he's considering picking up a unit. I can think of a number of places that would offer something like this - CU Sports Medicine and Resilience Code in Inverness.
We have some great content that we've put on the MHE website and in the show notes. Navigate to MHE>Content>Resources and scroll to Metabolic Testing. We'll have a sample report as well as a number of video resources for PNOE. You will want to check out the report for sure as it goes into some of the concepts that we have discussed with Dr. Inigo San Milan, Olympian Jim Galanes and Bob Seebohar. Specifically what muscle fiber types are used in various degrees of intensity, how that translates into breath rate and fuel sources, and nutrition recommendations to improve metabolic efficiency and promote fat as a substrate source.
