Going Down the Mindset Rabbit Hole with Roy Blenkin

Do you have a victim mentality? Roy Blenkin is a type one diabetic and went against the paradigm to control his condition by following a ketogenic diet as recommended by his endocrinologist. We began corresponding last year, and he's doing some amazing things in his life. It was a pleasure to have him on the podcast and I know you'll enjoy this episode as well.
