In this episode, I speak with the founder of Catalina Crunch, Krishna Kaliannan! Krishna was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and epilepsy and looked to the ketogenic diet to help with seizures.

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.
