As an athlete I always thought of myself as healthy. I followed what the “experts” suggested was my best diet for an endurance athlete;

  • High carbohydrates
  • Low Fat

Late last year and in January of this year I took a long hard look at my health because;

  • I could not lose the excess body fat I gained and carried over the last three years
  • I wasn’t sleeping well
  • I wasn’t getting the athletic performance gains that I was promised if I followed a certain workout protocol

It wasn’t until I finally took to heart something I believe in:

If I always do what I’ve always done, I’ll always get what I always got.

I finally had to look to change everything I was doing because clearly it wasn’t working. I didn’t want to go insane believing that if I did the same things I would get a different result.

This is when I discovered KETONES and a LOW-CARB DIET.

Since February of this year my results to day have been:

  • I’ve released 26 lbs net of fat loss and muscle gain
  • I’ve gained at least 1 – 2 pounds of lean muscle
  • I sleep way better
  • My energy has really improved
  • I’m able to work out harder because I’m recovering like a 20 year old (I’m 60)

I’m as fit now with only 4 months of Ironman training that it used to take 8 months to achieve.

If I can get this much health and performance gain in a short time being relatively healthy, think what would a person less healthy or more obese might have?

I grateful I discovered Jeff Volek, PhD, RD and his pioneering work for the last two decades.

How Isagenix May Help

I’m a top distributor for Isagenix, a billion dollar health and wellness company. I’ve successfully adapted Isagenix for a low-carb approach to health.

Many of their products have carbs and during the 14-day keto-adaptation phase of a ketogenic diet, where carbs have to be restricted to < 20 per day, there are only a few that can be used. However the good news is that those that can be used are very effective when used as I will direct you.

After the keto-adaptation phase where carbs are added back to the diet, in time most of their products are acceptable on a ketogenic diet.
