On this podcast, Johnny Deacon of MyDNAcoach.com interviews Luis on the basics of a well formulated Ketogenic Diet, as well as some of the current myths and misconceptions around it.
“Regarded as one of the worlds top experts in Ketogenic Dieting within the evidence first community, his balanced and refreshing practices with Keto was incredible. –
This episode is absolutely a 101 to Ketogenic Dieting. We go deep on no nonsense advice and the intelligent way to transition to a Keto outlining a specific system for transition whilst guiding you through common challenges and misconceptions, one of which is Bullet Proof Coffee being a foundational aspect, which it is absolutely not.
I really respect what our recent guest @darthluiggi (Luis Villasenor) had to say around people wanting it all at once (size, fat loss, health, perfect nutrition) and we were in agreement that less is more and to focus on one pillar at a time. What’s the one outcome you want? What’s the priority. And then expand time and release yourself from the pressure of trying to achieve that one goal within 90 days. Take 12 months and nail it properly with guidance.”
