Episode #262: The Fantastic Four Keto Show

Description: Join this dynamic roundtable of kool keto kids Brad Kearns (co-author of Keto Reset Diet and Instagram @bradkearns1), Brian McAndrew (KetoReset.com success story, the filmmaker and audio master for all primal content, and Instagram @wholedoods), Layla McGowan (co-author of Keto Reset Instant Pot Cookbook and Instagram @strong.and.wellfed), and Dr. Lindsay Taylor (co-author of Keto Reset Instant Pot Cookbook and Keto Reset Cookbook and Instagram @theusefuldish) 

The group discusses the matters of the day in the Keto Reset Facebook community and the keto movement at large. In particular, are we applying an overly regimented, high-stress approach to our keto goals? Layla says we shouldn’t even worry about our macros until we have established a strong foundation of healthy, nutrient-dense eating and a sensible (i.e., NOT chronic) exercise program. Brian, who has been hard-core keto for 2+ years, explains that to reduce temptation and decision fatigue, he relies on a simple rotation of repeating meals that he enjoys. This was also a great insight from Luis Villasenor from KetoGains.com, who encourages people who are just getting started to eat the same exact thing every day (you know the macros work!) for a while until you build some momentum. Brad explains how 2018 has been about living in the “keto zone” for him, where some days or blocks of time are keto-aligned (under 50 grams of carbs per day) and other periods are more liberal with carb intake (especially in conjunction with strenuous workouts.) The group wonders whether an extreme approach to anything, be it athletic training or dietary compliance, might lead to a burnout rebound effect.  

The group discusses the common dilemma of how to adjust keto strategy to align with athletic goals, and also tackle the frustrating issue of social media pressures influencing body image. The question is posed: how much (re: results) is enough, where further results just aren’t worth the hassle? The audience is also reminded that our cultural ideas are typically fake people – often doped up, airbrushed, or primed for a single photo opportunity with a physique that is vastly different than their day to day average appearance..
