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.

055 – The Keto Reset Diet with Mark Sisson

Mark Sisson is the bestselling author of The Primal Blueprint, a former world-class endurance athlete, and one of the leading voices of the Evolutionary Health Movement. His blog, MarksDailyApple.com, has paved the way for Primal enthusiasts to challenge conventional wisdom’s diet and exercise principles and take personal responsibility for their health and well-being.

The Keto Reset Diet: Reboot Your Metabolism in 21 Days and Burn Fat Forever
Learn how to make perhaps the most profound health and weight loss boosting lifestyle change you will ever make—transforming your body from carbohydrate dependency to become a fat burning beast. In his new book, Mark Sisson, bestselling author of The Primal Blueprint and publisher of the popular health site and blog MarksDailyApple.com, reveals his proven effective ketogenic eating strategy for losing weight and improving health.

When you go keto, you will reset your metabolism for effortless fat loss using a targeted ketogenic diet of high-fat, low-to-moderate protein, low-carb foods, and complementary lifestyle practices that help optimize metabolic and hormonal functions.
Unlike other ketogenic plans, Sisson first teaches readers the real secret to rapid and sustained weight loss, which is in becoming “fat-adapted” before entering full nutritional ketosis. This process allows your body to learn to burn fat more efficiently, resulting in increased and sustained weight loss over the long-term.

054 – Gut Health & The Fast Tract Diet with Norm Robillard, Ph.D.


Norman Robillard, Ph.D., is a microbiologist and researcher who spent 20 years in the pharmaceutical industry before founding the Digestive Health Institute. His goal is to develop holistic treatments for digestive illnesses based on a clear understanding of the underlying causes of disease. Norm was the first to recognize a connection between bacteria in our intestines, nutritional malabsorption and the symptoms of acid reflux. Based on his extensive research, he created the clinically proven Fast Tract Diet, a safe and effective alternative to proton pump inhibitor (PPI) and H2 blocking drugs. Fast Tract Digestion books are now available for Heartburn and IBS on the books page. Bacterial overgrowth fueled by nutritional malabsorption is a factor in several other digestive health conditions. Research in this area is the main focus of the DHI. Additional versions of Fast Tract Digestion are in the works for a number of these conditions. Norm received his Ph.D. at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and completed post-doctoral training at Tufts University.

051 – Natural Movement with Ryan McGowan

genomics-nutrition-genetics-weight-lossRyan McGowan is a former athlete and endurance junky turned Primal. In March 2009, he stumbled across an article that rocked his world. After reading (and re-reading) this convincing piece, he reduced his training significantly, altered his eating style, and became healthier and fitter than ever! Inspired by this way of living, combined with a growing disenchantment with the commercial construction industry, Ryan walked away from his career to pursue his passion full time in 2010! His engineering brain still gets stimulation through analyzing mechanics of human movement, designing practical training regimens, and building fun and new “equipment” to play on!

When it comes to training, Ryan is a minimalist! He prides himself on creating efficient programs for his clients (and teammates) so they can participate in events of any distance with the least amount of time and mileage investment. He is a Level 2 MovNat Certified Trainer, Level 1 Kettlebell Athletics Instructor, Level 1 Animal Flow Instructor, and won Providence Journal’s Readers’ Choice Award for Best Personal Trainer in 2017!

As far as helping his clients become healthier and improve their body composition, Ryan shares with them the Weston Price and the Primal Blueprint guidelines for nutrition. He also encourages his clients to participate in events to put their skills and fitness levels to the test.
