Jessyca is a recovering bulimic and compulsive overeater. After battling eating disorders for 31 years, being hospitalized multiple times, and trying every diet and/or weight loss gimmick under the sun, she found herself at 309 pounds, her heaviest weight ever.
Chronic depression led Jessyca into almost total isolation, and she rarely left the house. She finally reached a breaking point: her blood pressure was so high that she was in danger of serious health complications, and she could no longer even walk around the house without feeling exhausted. Knowing that she had achieved a measure of success on low carb diets before- as long as she stuck to it, that is- she decided she had to do something to regain her health, and committed to beginning a low carb lifestyle again.
Finding the Ketovangelist website and Facebook page is something Jessyca continues to be thankful for. As she read and researched more, and finally began eating keto, Jessyca learned that this lifestyle was very different than the low carb diets of old. For the first time in her life, she was free from the cravings and food obsessions that had plagued her since age 11. The Ketogenic lifestyle gave her recovery; freeing her from obsessive counting and weighing that goes hand-in-hand with the unhealthy "dieting" mentality. Not only is she down 120 lbs. so far, her blood pressure is also excellent. In addition, she no longer a needs medications for anxiety and bladder disease, and has ceased her weekly migraine shots.
Jessyca spent the last ten months coaching and mentoring friends, family, and members of her community for success on the Ketogenic lifestyle. Her entire family is living keto, and they are happier and healthier than ever before. Jessyca is passionate about sharing her story and teaching others who may benefit from making the jump to a Ketogenic lifestyle. She believes in keeping keto simple, where food can take it's proper place as fuel and not as a burden or an obsession, making this a truly sustainable lifestyle change.

How did a professional comedian become a fitness expert?
Like most natural health experts, T.C. Hale (aka Tony Hale) began his career in stand-up comedy. Touring professionally as a comic for nearly a decade, he never envisioned that he would one day teach the world how to sleep, poop, and even lose weight.
On Valentine’s Day, 2004, Tony lost his voice and it never came back. After twenty-three doctors couldn’t figure out the problem, Tony decided it was time to dig for his own answers. Eight years later, not only did Tony figure out his own issues, he also happened upon hidden information about how to improve countless other health problems.
Though Tony likes to boast about the fact that he holds no legitimate credentials (nor does he believe that we need any more “experts” from the same pool of knowledge already failing so many with health issues), he is greatly respected by his peers in the natural health industry. The biggest manufacturers in the health, fitness and organic products industries send Tony their products every year in hopes of winning one of his GearAwards.
Beyond working with many celebrity clients, Tony is on the executive board of the Coalition For Health Education, a nonprofit association that helps professionals and their clients learn about health through nutrition. Additionally, Tony teaches monthly webinars about nutrition to doctors, nutritionists and other health care professionals from more than thirty-five countries.
You can also find Tony producing documentaries like, WHY AM I SO FAT? A film that teaches the truth about weight loss while showcasing Tony’s client, Gabe Evans, who lost 200 pounds in 9 ½ months by treating Tony’s word as gospel.
