Conquering Type 2 Diabetes with Rome

Have you been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes or other illnesses? Rome joined me for this podcast episode after my friend Michael Dennehy sang his praises during a recent hunting trip. After hearing his story, I knew I had to have him on the show to share his transformation with you. I love hearing inspirational stories of people who make the switch to a ketogenic lifestyle and change their health for the better, and I know you'll love this episode.

What we discussed:

  • How we were introduced and his friendship with Michael Dennehy (1:41)
  • Rome's backstory, including his weight gain for sports and how he made the transition to keto (3:06)
  • Losing the initial 100 lbs., then gaining it back due to poor habits (9:29)
  • Managing his type 2 diabetes with medication and the weight gain and poor health that resulted from that (12:08)
  • Making the switch to managing his diabetes through diet and lifestyle changes (14:57)
  • His weight loss journey and progress (21:08)
  • Obesity and diabetes in the southern black communities (24:14)
  • Intermittent fasting (28:49)
  • Withstanding temptation and sticking to the plan (34:46)
  • Fitness training and trimming down (35:34)
  • Being a positive influence on his daughter (37:05)
  • Increasing fat intake (40:19)
