Podcast 70: Optimizing a Keto Lifestyle with Danny Vega

I had the great opportunity to interview Danny Vega about Optimizing a Keto Lifestyle. Danny and his wife Maura have the blog and podcast the Fat Fueled Family.

Danny grew up in Miami, Florida and has always been interested in nutrition and fitness. Ever since he was a young kid, he wanted to be a “strong man”. 

In high school, he was the starting running back for my football team and led the county in rushing yards. He then went on to receive my bachelor’s degree from Columbia University in 2004, where I was a member of the football team and a three-time Dean’s List recipient. After college, he pursued my Master’s of Science in Human Performance from the University of Florida, where he worked with the national championship men’s basketball team, along with women’s basketball, tennis, and golf programs. He then went on to become the Strength & Conditioning Coordinator for VCU basketball, helping the Rams win the 2007 conference championship and making it to the second round of the NCAA tournament. 

He had been out of collegiate Strength & Conditioning for almost a decade, but I have continued to compete in sports such as Crossfit, powerlifting, half marathons, and now rowing. In June of 2016, he discovered the ketogenic lifestyle and never looked back. He found so many benefits within a week of switching, that I knew this would be my new way of life. Inflammation and injuries from years of playing on turf and beating myself up with heavy lifting were gone. He regained control over my hunger and found mental clarity and an increase in productivity that he had never experienced before. In August of 2017, after over a year of dipping his toes in the water, his two boys joined us. 

Desmond, his oldest, felt an immediate increase in energy and improvement in his allergies and asthma. Dean, his youngest, has had astounding improvements in his eczema and mood. Our children are immune to cravings. It has been an amazing thing to see. He thought his kids were “picky” just like most kids supposedly are; keto changed their taste buds and now they crave real, nourishing food like the recipes you will find on this PDF. Best of all, they do not feel restricted in any way!

He understands that transitioning the family can be challenging, Danny and Maura, Danny’s wife, hope his blog help you conveniently transition your entire family to a low carb lifestyle so that you, too, can experience all of the profound benefits we have!

Podcast 63: Brenda Richards’ Journey from an Obese School Teacher to Fit, Strong Coach

Brenda has been a yo-yo dieter her entire adult life…until now. In 2009, she reached out for help at her highest known weight of 407 pounds. In the spring of 2010, she had weight loss surgery, which took her to maintain at ~290 pounds after the honeymoon period of weight loss her surgeon described had ended.

During the winter of 2016, Brenda nearly passed out in the store. Her doctor ordered several tests, including one which resulted in her being identified as prediabetic. At that time, her doctor suggested considering a Paleo diet, an anti-inflammatory diet, or an Atkins diet. She began researching and found the Ketogains-style approach to the ketogenic diet, which is basically a blend of the other three.

She began her ketogenic portion of her journey in the spring of 2016. After six months on the diet, she was no longer prediabetic.
Brenda’s passion for strength training is a direct result of her experience in Ketogains boot camps with Luis, Tyler, and Zach. She’d never lifted prior to enrolling in one and was extremely intimidated and overwhelmed her first day in the gym, BUT she went back and has kept going. She has participated in back-to-back camps, first as a client and now as a coach. She is certified by the National Council on Strength and Fitness as a personal trainer and is preparing to enroll in the Bayesian Bodybuilding course.

Brenda has degrees in mathematics, computer science, and educational administration. She works full time as an instructional coach. She has a passion for educating and empowering people to find the courage within to risk trying something new and push beyond their comfort zones to achieve levels they didn’t know were within reach.

Credentials

  • Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) – National Council on Strength & Fitness (NCSF)
  • Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics & Computer Science – Central College
  • Master of Education in Educational Administration – Grand Canyon University

Podcast 41: Secrets of The Funky Kitchen

If you think making nutritious homemade foods from scratch takes too much time or costs too much money, you need to know about this. 

 

My colleague, Sarica Cernohous, wife and mother, practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and author of The Funky Kitchen, is hosting a FREE webinar on March 3rd, where she'll reveal her favorite tips and tricks for making delicious,  homemade meals using traditional food preparation techniques in less than 30 minutes a day.

 

Sarica explains how it’s not enough to shop for healthy food at the supermarket, or even the natural foods' store. The next step to truly vibrant health is to prepare that food in ways that make it easy to digest and absorb the most nutrients. 

 

It’s easier than you think. Sarica will dispel the common myths and show you exactly how to get started preparing nutrient-dense foods just like your great-grandmother did. 

 

Your family is going to love this.

Imagine coming home from a busy day to a house that smells divine with a warm, home-cooked meal. 

  

Imagine the vibrancy you and your family would feel, eating nutritious meals that contain ingredients you choose—rather than what is dictated by food manufacturers and takeout restaurants, where their first concern is costs and the bottom line—not your health! 

  

Imagine creating meals in less time than it takes to stop in at the deli counter at the grocery store or sitting in your car for takeout—and at a fraction of the cost. 

  

Imagine the energy and clarity you would feel, eating truly nutritious foods regularly, to fuel your body in a way that shake mixes, energy bars, boxed, canned and frozen foods can never match. 

  

This can be your life when you learn Sarica’s 3 secrets of creating wholesome, homemade foods in much less time than you would imagine.

 

And these methods save money, too!

  

I can’t think of anything more basic and powerful than fueling our bodies at every meal with real foods, made with nourishing ingredients—this is foundational to all other efforts we do for ourselves and our families.
