Keto: Brad’s Keto Tips Health Mindset and Reaching Your Goals

Description: Brad updates you on his most recent keto happenings, particularly his intuitive approach that features the traditional compressed eating window and keto aligned meals, as well as an intuitive and spontaneous fluctuation in carb intake and total caloric intake in conjunction with ambitious workouts. Brad also details what to do when you fail at keto, and the importance of a steady progression toward keto instead of a crash course that ends up in a stress hormone back. Brad talks about the dilemma between adopting a casual approach to keto instead of an overly stressful orthorexic approach, but also being able to nail your goals without slipping and sliding into the luxuries and temptations of comfortable modern life. He provides compelling examples of the direct, no-nonsense success formula exhibited by Tippy Wyatt of “Tippy Tales” YouTube fame (put your money where your mouth is!) and Primal Blueprint film and audio master Brian McAndrew of @wholedoods Instagram fame (“I’m eating this…as long as its keto”)

Keto: Longcuts to a Longer Life, Part 2

Description: Getting your diet and exercise routine dialed (Longcuts Part 1) is certainly an essential entry point to leading a long, healthy, happy life. But it’s only a portion of the big picture. Sleep is arguably more important than any other lifestyle practice, because if its compromised than other bets are off. In hectic, high-tech modern life, our stress management skills are in higher demand than any other time in the history of humanity. Finally, relationships are what make the world go round, but we often neglect them in favor of tangible objectives like filling plate with healthy food, filling logbook with impressive workouts, and filling bank account with money. If you are falling short in the areas of sleep, stress management and relationships, your keto goals are doomed. High stress lifestyle circumstances keep you in fight or flight mode, which equates with sugar cravings, carb dependency, and burnout. Let’s take a step back from intense keto objectives for a moment and look at healthy lifestyle tips that can support your keto goals. This show will be syndicated on Brad’s new podcast, called Get Over Yourself. Check the show out, as Brad covers topics relating to health, peak performance, personal growth, happiness, and longevity, with humor and a little spice!
