063 – Keto for Women (and Men) with Shawn Mynar


Today’s is guest is Shawn Mynar, a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP™), Restorative Wellness Practitioner, Certified Personal Trainer, Real Food Foodie, and Passionate Health Seeker!

She grew up with the standard American diet until finding out she had an autoimmune disease, ulcerative colitis (UC) in 2008. Through experimenting and changing her nutritional approach, she healed herself through a ketogenic approach. She is now thoroughly versed in issues related to autoimmune disease and numerous other disorders.

She hosts the Keto for Women podcast which consistently ranks as a top podcast in Fitness and Nutrition on I-tunes.

Top takeaways

  1. Don’t fear GOOD FATS. You need to increase your fat significantly to ensure you become ketogenic.
  2. You need to moderate protein to stay ketogenic. Too high protein is a very common mistake.
  3. Toxins are stored in fat so you need to choose high quality cuts of meat.
  4. You can’t go ketogenic with subpar foods – you can but you shouldn’t. This is Keto for Health.
  5. Use blood ketones to fine tune ketosis. Test for information. When you feel great, test to find out optimal ketone levels. Get the specific number.
  6. Be in ketosis for 3-5 weeks before you intermittent fast.

062 – Keto & Cancer with Miriam Kalamian


Miriam Kalamian is a nutrition professional specializing in the use of the Ketogenic Diet for cancer and other metabolic diseases. She holds a Master of Science degree in Human Nutrition from Eastern Michigan University.

Her passion for helping others implement this diet comes directly from my personal experience. Her son Raffi was diagnosed with a brain tumor in December of 2004. Standard of care therapies failed to stop the relentless progression of his disease and it became painfully clear that we needed to switch gears quickly. An Internet search led her to Dr. Thomas Seyfried’s research supporting the use of the Restricted Ketogenic Diet for cancer.

059 – Starting a Keto Business with Victor Macias & Kristoffer Quiaoit


Two entrepreneurs with a love of Keto. What do you get?
Keto Kookie

Today I talk with co-founders of Keto Kookie, Victor Macias and Kristoffer Quiaoit about their ketogenic journey and business.

Kristoffer: An educator, foodie, and Keto convert, I discovered the Ketogenic or low carb high fat lifestyle listening to a Tim Ferriss podcast featuring a neuroscientist named Dom D’Agostino. Fat is good? No way. It can reduce body fat, improve mental clarity, reduce inflammation, help with diabetes? Impossible. Well, it wouldn’t hurt to try. After gaining 6lbs after my honeymoon, I gave Keto a shot and lost 8lbs in 2 weeks. It even helped me play basketball with less soreness and more energy. Excited about the results, I convinced my friend Victor, founder of Male Standard, to give it a shot.

Victor: I started Keto, gave up coffee, and eventually found myself with more energy than before. We both loved that we can grab a protein style cheeseburger with mayo and feel proud. One thing was missing, however: DESSERT, SNACKS, SWEETS. We had sweet cravings and missed snacks we could just grab out of the pantry.
