In this episode, I speak with Victoria Field on a variety of different keto related topics. Victoria is a former IFBB pro fitness competitor and news anchor.

She is currently working on the upcoming Metabolic Health Summit conference and making huge strides there. I really enjoyed the conversation and learned a ton. I hope you enjoy it as well!
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!
In this episode, I speak with Adam Clark on his and his family's health transformation. Adam is one of 7 brothers, five of which are keto. He was introduced to keto by his father and his older brother and has since made it his lifestyle. We go over some of the mistakes he's made with the diet and many of the lessons learned. We talk about his fasting strategy and the importance of avoiding sweeteners and caffeine in excess. Adam trains solely with resistance bands so we dove into his technique there. Adam tells how he is raising his family keto and his plans for his daughter's health. We also dove into his family's new business....homemade pork rinds! I really enjoyed the conversation and hearing about his family's story, hope you do as well!

I originally had him on the podcast immediately following his first show and we talked about his competition prep strategy. I wanted to have him on again several months after so that he could describe what the post-show "rebound" and reverse diet has been like. We also dive into the importance of embracing each phase of body recomposition and being ok with some temporary increase in body fat. Jonathan tells us some of the lessons he's learned throughout the process and what he plans to do going forward. We talk about how to build muscle in a caloric surplus and the mindset around sacrificing! I really enjoyed this conversation, I hope you do as well!
