Elle Russ chats with Tyler Cartwright – 15 years ago, Tyler was nearly dead. He weighed a quarter of a ton, he was falling asleep while driving, while talking, and while working. He was eating 12,000 Calories per day chasing blood glucose spikes and crashes just to stay awake. His A1c was in excess of 13, and he was nearer to death each day. A series of events over time and his own desire to improve brought him face-to-face with the gravity of this situation and he began to fight for his well-being for the first time in nearly two decades. He shed 300 pounds of excess body weight and has maintained the loss for over three years. His A1c, BG, and all markers of metabolic health have returned.
Tyler now coaches and teaches others how to do so, both through his cofounding of Ketogains with Luis Villaseñor, and through his recently published book, Kintsukuroi: Rebuilding Hope & Embracing Change. His work and his coaching have helped thousands of people to succeed and inspired countless others to pursue their goals. He is an international public speaker, loves a great conversation, and enjoys reading on various topics (with a library well over 2500 books). His wife, Jamie, and their daughter live at home outside of Nashville, TN with their dog Dixie.
