Shawn Wells

Shawn Wells Podcast Show Notes:

In this episode, I speak with great friend and repeat guest, Shawn Wells!  Shawn is a supplement and nutritional expert, widely known as the "Master Formulator".  However, we didn't dive into supplementation in this episode.  We dove into mindset, politics, relationships, and how the future of Keto may play out.  We talked about the importance of sympathy and how to meet people where they are.  We talked about the "bliss point" in processed and convenient foods.  Shawn went into detail about how the government has played a bad hand in our nation's food supply.  We talk about the importance of surrounding yourself with positivity and growth.  Both Shawn and I are working to truly be in the moment so we discussed that as well as the art of giving.  I really enjoyed this conversation, it's always a pleasure talking with Shawn!

Robert Hogge

Robert Hogge Podcast Show Notes:

In this episode, I speak with one of my clients, Robert Hogge.  Robert was in a severe car accident which caused significant nerve tissue damage.  This injury left him nearly immobile and stuck in a life of severe pain.  He became medically addicted to pain medication and realized he had to turn his life around.  He got off the meds and turned towards nutrition to improve his health and well being.  He experienced such a shift in his well being after following the keto diet that he decided to pursue one of his life's dreams of stepping on stage as a competitor.  He worked with me and we got him absolutely shredded at 49 years old and made this dream a reality.  He now works alongside his wonderful wife in teaching others about the benefits of keto and how to live a purpose driven life.  I've got utmost respect for him, I hope you enjoy the conversation!

Meg Podcast Show Notes: 

In this episode, I speak with Meg and her journey of losing over 200 lbs and overcoming eating disorders.  Meg grew up as the "big kid" at school and developed eating disorders at an early age.  This impacted her very negatively and she was constantly avoiding interaction with others.  She gained the confidence to pursue a healthier lifestyle after seeing others with a similar background turn their life around.  We dive into binging, purging, and the downside of fasting.  We also discuss the psychological aspect of reaching your goals and the importance of consistency, discipline, forming habits, and a healthy balance.  I really enjoyed this talk as I relate to so many of the struggles Meg reflects on.

Tay Sweat on following a vegan-ketogenic protocol!

Tay Sweat

Tay Sweat Podcast Show Notes: 

In this episode, I learn all about how to be a Vegan Keto-adapted athlete with Tay Sweat. Tay is the vegan trainer but he didn't start out like that. He was overweight and diagnosed with type two diabetes when he was only 15 years old. He decided to swap out the fast food for veggies and hasn't looked back since. We dove into the macro ratios he follows and what a typical day of eating looks like for Tay. We went down the rabbit hole of eating for ethics vs eating for performance. We discuss nutrition based off of ancestral history. We compare vegan and carnivore and we stress the point of doing what is right for you as an individual. I really really enjoyed this podcast and I learned a ton about the other side of the spectrum. Hope you enjoy the conversation as well!

Jesse Jones on turning his life around with keto!

Jesse Jones

Jesse Jones Podcast Show Notes:

In this episode, I speak with Jesse Jones of Average Joe Keto!  Jesse has been able to transform his health and his life leveraging the ketogenic diet.  Prior to keto, he would run endless miles and follow a "healthy" diet to improve his composition and lose the fat....It didn't work.  In fact, all the cardio he did led to him damaging the cartilage beneath his knee caps.  This practically cost him the use of his legs and he had to put an emphasis on nutrition.  After finding keto and totally transforming his health, he has been on a mission to share his story and improve the health of others.  He has also recently had a child which has allowed him to totally change his perspective on life!  Great conversation, I hope you enjoy!
