KDP Ep 031: Keto, Weight Loss Surgery, and Personal Transformation with Brenda Richards


Welcome back to episode 31 of the Ketodontist Podcast! Today, we have a guest on the show Brenda Richards. After spending most of her adult life yo-yo dieting, she had to make a drastic change to lose weight and opted for weight loss surgery. After her “honeymoon phase” was over, and still had more changes she needed to make, she adopted a whole foods, nutrient dense version of a ketogenic diet, as well as strength training. She is now a coach for Ketogains Bootcamps, and is a certified personal trainer and sports nutritionist.

In this episode we discuss:
Brenda’s personal story leading up to her decision to change.
The side effects and complications of weight loss surgery.
How surgery only got her so far and why massive diet change was still needed.
What got her started down the low carb path
Groups and communities that were instrumental in setting her down the right path.
How she went from being a Ketogains Bootcamp client to a Bootcamp Coach.
Her journey from being an intimidated, inexperienced lifter to lover of strength training

And MORE!

KDP Episode 030: Mike Berta Talks About his 90% Fat Keto Experiment vs Whole Foods Keto


Welcome back to episode 30 of the Ketodontist Podcast! After a bit of a break, we’re right back at it. Today, we have a guest on the show Mike Berta. Mike has been low carb for a few years, and over this summer performed a self week-long experiment where he tried to consume 90% of his calories from fat to replicate an experiment performed by Dr. John Limansky and Jimmy Moore. His results and specifically his blood markers were…. shocking to say the least.

In this episode we discuss:

How did Mike get started with low carb?

What has been Mike’s experience with keto in the past, and how has it evolved over time?

How having a physician that understands low carb can be of benefit

What prompted him to replicate a week long, 90% fat diet

Did he find fat satiating as claimed in the keto world?

How did this diet impact his blood markers, and how did they respond once going back to his normal diet?

What has been his experience with Ketogains Bootcamps?

How did the two separate experiments differ?

And MORE!

10/10/18 Keto Meal Prep Vlog: Beef, Broccoli, and Mushrooms

Here is an example of simple meal prep when doing Keto for fatloss. Pick a meat, pick a low carb veggie or two. Keep it simple! To echo the Ketogains methodology: target protein, limit carbs, use fat as a lever. If you have extra fat on your body, you don’t need to be eating tons of it.

KDP Episode 029: Don’t Fear (Or Glorify) Fat

Is coconut oil worse than other fat sources?

Is saturated fat bad for you?

Who should, and shouldn’t, avoid saturated fat?

Why context is important on determining fat intake
