This blog is dedicated to bringing you the latest nutritional news, research and information about the benefits of the ketogenic lifestyle.

Why I don't trust the USDA

If you're wondering why I don't trust the USDA, The American Heart Association, and The American Diabetes Association (and why you shouldn't either)... this 43-minute video sums it up perfectly:

If you don't have 43 minutes to spare, here's my take on it:

It comes down to deciding who you should trust... "the wisdom of the crowds", or "the vision of the anointed".

 

A few prominent doctors, scientist, and researchers came up with a theory in the 1950s that saturated fat lead to high cholesterol which led to heart disease based on some very flawed science.

My Interview with the maker of the Food Lies documentary

 

I am so excited to share this pre-recorded episode of The Keto Show with you!

I was able to interview Brian Sanders, the documentary filmmaker behind "Food Lies" and host of the Peak Human Podcast.

Over the past couple of years, Brian has interviewed all kinds of health experts, doctors, scientists, journalists, and other professionals about optimal human nutrition.

  • Heart-healthy whole grains (HINT: THERE IS NO SUCH THING!)
  • Vegetable oils are healthier than natural fats like coconut oil, olive oil, and butter --WRONG AGAIN!

The Livin' La Vida Low Carb Show with Jimmy Moore

So excited to have had the opportunity to share a bit of my health and weight loss journey on the #1 low carb podcast in the world!

Jimmy Moore has been hosting the popular Livin' La Vida Low Carb podcast since 2005 and has literally interviewed every expert in the field.

I was thrilled when he invited me to be on his show after I sent him a video suggesting his mindset may have to do with some of the struggles he has recently been experiencing. 

We chat how having the right mindset is super important when it comes to making lifestyle changes.

We also discuss the other benefits of the keto lifestyle (besides weight loss) as well as how important it is to customize your keto as there isn't a one size fits all approach.

Here's a 1-minute preview:
