Kieren Dsouza

I'm an ultramarathon runner & endurance athlete. In 2016, I became the first Indian to qualify for & finish the Spartathlon, a 246 kilometre footrace from Athens to Sparta held annually in Greece. I've been a full time runner since 2016. I also do many mountaineering projects & race at some of the biggest ultra trail races across the world. I've also been representing India at the Trail Running World Championships since 2017.

Current fitness goal

I want to be fitter for the events I have planned. I have a couple of races lined up this year so the goal is to be competitive at them. I have a mountaineering project lined up as well and I want to be fit for it.

My cheat day looks like

I have something called "cheat workouts." I will go and do what I am supposed to do, but I feel like doing more, so I will just do that as my cheat workout. I won't record it or note it down so I when I look back I won't know, it is like it never happened. And my cheat workouts are like 1.5 hour runs (not a stroll in the park!) or I hit the gym. I also have food cheat days almost every day. I am very aware of what I am eating and I am constantly cheating on it. I absolutely love a tiramisu, so I'll get those whenever I feel like.

Favourite Character

Road Runner from The Looney Tunes Show

Trend I'd like to see dissapear

People just living their lives on social media. Would be nice to live it in-person for a change, off the screen.

  • I have used this product for many months during training. And I use it regularly post most of my training.
  • This one is a great-tasting product, that I look forward to consuming post training, even on those hard training days when I would not have an appetite to eat anything.
  • It’s a great post-workout drink to help with recovery. I really like it.
  • Recommend this for active people. Especially those who are serious and intense about their training.

  • It’s a great tasting protein powder, that’s light on the stomach and easy to digest. Give it high marks for taste, texture, palatability and digestibility.
  • Give it a middle score for recovery and performance improvement. If you are active, this is a good product to have in your pantry.

  • Mostly consuming this in the evening either post or pre dinner, I found this Unived powder to be easy on the stomach, and quite helpful with recovery...especially during the time of my training phase (as I prepare for races and runs) where I train with a lot more intensity. I liked the flavour.
  • People serious about training, who need to consume "protein-on-the-go" or more protein easily.
  • The dosage is ideal, but dosage also depends a little on the requirements of the person, how they train, diet etc.
