    Keto Savage Robert Sikes | This is how you build muscle on the keto diet KKP: 227

    Today, I am blessed to have here with me a lifetime natural competitive bodybuilder, Robert Orion Sikes.
    Robert started Keto Savage to help motivate and educate others about the importance of following your passions and getting the results you want. Robert wakes up early, he works his A@$ off, and he sees results.
    Robert is no different than you; any success he has experienced this far is attainable for anybody willing to put in the work. We live in an era where everything is automatic, everything is superficial, and everything is expected for nothing. That life does not create greatness; it destroys it. The Keto Savage site will empower those who crave intensity, dedication, discipline, hard work, and sacrifice.
    In this episode, Robert Orion Sikes reveals the inspiration behind his brand, Keto Savage. As one of the first keto bodybuilders, Robert knew he needed to document his journey. Robert has been in ketosis for six years; he explains how he stays so disciplined. When you love what you do, it’s easy to say disciplined. So, learn how to love keto foods and to do amazing things for your body. Tune in as we speak about Robert’s Keto Brick, how to break a plateau, and we talk about big tech censorship.

    [00:30] About Robert Orion Sikes
    As a bodybuilder, Robert was shredded, but he sacrificed his health. He developed eating disorders that left him in a dark place. Plus, Robert fell into a deep debt; he got depressed and suicidal. So, Robert tried keto. His cravings went away, and he felt much better. Everyone at the gym would tell Robert that he couldn’t get big on carbs. However, Robert went fully keto, and he still competed as a bodybuilder. Robert has looked back since.  [05:45] How Robert Will Stay Disciplined
    The secret to Robert’s discipline is loving the process. You can’t become a bodybuilder overnight; it takes years and years of weightlifting. The more you work at something, the better you get. Bodybuilding involves an obsessive amount of discipline. As long as you embrace it, then you will find success. [07:45] What To Know When Starting Keto
    Know your “why” and understand what drives you. Also, knowing your “why” will help if you have a long-term view of what you want to accomplish. That way, you’ll be excited about what you do every single day. Getting healthy isn’t a good enough “why.” Instead, your “why” should be about the people in your life. You owe it to your family to stay healthy. [11:50] About The Keto Brick
    The Keto Brick sold out in two minutes. The bricks are great for backpacking, hunting, and running. The brick is 1,000 calories with 90 grams of fat. Every ingredient has the purpose of optimizing your performance. The momentum and support for Robert’s Keto Bricks keep coming. Keto products should not have seed oils or any sweeteners. If there are more protein and carbs than fat, then that isn’t keto. Get Keto Bricks: https://www.ketobrick.com [19:15] Building Muscle On Keto   
    If you are implementing progressive overload and increasing your training, you will build muscle in the context of being in a caloric surplus. Fuel your growth through adequate calories. Within eight days, Robert will hit each muscle group twice. Robert doesn’t do a ton of cardio. He likes to run as a meditative type of exercise. If you’re doing cardio, do it after your strength training. Use it as a cool down rather than a warmup. [24:00] How To Break A Plateau
    Many women chronically undereat. Their metabolic baseline has been so down-regulated that there’s not much room for them to improve. So, women need to upregula

    Barton Scott | How to replenish electrolytes and minerals on the keto diet KKP: 226

    Barton Scott | How to replenish electrolytes and minerals on the keto diet KKP: 226

    Today, I am blessed to have here with me, Founder of Upgraded Formulas and a Chemical Engineer, Barton Scott.
    Barton always had sharp cognitive function, but he began to suffer memory loss and mental fatigue. How could this be, at such an early age? To make matters worse, tragedy struck at the same time, when he unfortunately lost his mother.
    After taking many supplements during this time frame, nothing was working. Faced with adversity and looming health issues, this is when he decided that he must pursue solutions. 
    He grew frustrated with how mineral supplements lacked effectiveness and absorption into the body rendering most products in the market useless.
    He set out to fix the problem, using his background in Chemical Engineering and experience as a nutritionist, he was able to identify the issues with the current offerings and applied a solution based on sound science.
    Through research, and many trials and errors, he realized if you could get mineral particles small enough to absorb into our cells, that was going to be the winning formula for effectiveness. That's where he applied nanotechnology to minerals, and developed a solution that makes the minerals we sell today completely bioavailable - the impact of which we can see during our testing protocols.
    It was then that he set out to create what today is Upgraded Formulas, founded with maximum bioavailability and measurable absorption to ensure you are getting results.
    In this episode, Barton Scott opens the show explaining the inspiration behind his company, Upgraded Formulas. Unfortunately, typical supplements and our food isn’t enough to get all of our minerals. Barton came up with a better way: highly-effective dietary supplements that are absorbed better by the body than any other products. Plus, Barton created a hair test that is ideal for determining your heavy metal toxicity and mineral deficiencies. Tune in as we talk about the importance of testing, which minerals will be helpful with keto, and Barton speaks about his 11-day water fast.

    [00:25] About Barton Scott
    Faced with severe health issues, Barton realized that he needed to develop a solution that makes minerals absorb into the body. Minerals and heavy metals are a critical thing to focus on to optimize health. Every day, Barton would take 600 mg of magnesium every day – unfortunately, he just wasn’t absorbing the minerals. Barton created a new category of supplementation called Nano Minerals to increase healthspan, focus, sleep quality and slow down accelerated aging. His mission is to support you by creating, highly-effective dietary supplements that are absorbed better by the body than any other products. [10:20] Getting All Of Our Minerals From Food
    Unfortunately, our food isn’t enough to get all of our minerals. We all have some level of gut disfunction. So, we shouldn’t be surprised that our guts are not efficient systems. The environment is not perfect either in terms of efficiency. As life goes on, we have less and less nutrition in our food. Topsoil is depleted; therefore, there are fewer nutrients in our foods. [13:10] About Barton’s Hair Testing Kit
    Say goodbye to blood draws and urine tests. You don’t need to go to the doctor anymore to take care of your body properly. They test for key minerals, heavy metals, and understanding your metabolism. The kit is super easy to use; you collect the hair sample, send it in, then you receive fast test results!

    Junaid Kalmadi | Are green juices actually healthy for you? KKP: 225

    Junaid Kalmadi | Are green juices actually healthy for you? KKP: 225

    Today, I am blessed to have here with me the founder and CEO of Farmers Juice, Junaid Kalmadi.
    Farms are the lifeblood of a healthy food ecosystem. Farmers Juice partners with a network of trusted local farmers to source only the highest quality ingredients.
    Their sourcing is organic (year-round when available) from family farms in California.
    In this episode, Junaid Kalmadi speaks about his journey to opening Farmers Juice. They separate themselves from other juice companies because Farmers Juice focuses on local farms, they donate some of their proceeds to Kiss The Ground, and they have keto-friendly juices.
    2020 has been a challenging year; it’s time that we focus on self-care and self-love. One way to practice self-care is through giving our body the nutrition it needs. Tune in as we talk about the misconceptions of cold-pressed and the benefits of juice on our mental health.
    If you want to be in ketosis and check out the juices, you can do it here using code “ketokamp” https://thefarmersjuice.com/ketokamp.

    [00:25] About Junaid Kalmadi
    At college, Junaid gained forty pounds. Throughout college, his cognitive performance was down. No one would hire him after he graduated! So, Junaid started his own business out of necessity. Even though his business was up and running, Junaid had anxiety and depression. He got the dream but still felt like crap. Three years ago, Junaid took six months off to focus on being healthy. He started meditating every day, fasting, and keto. He lost twenty pounds and felt amazing. Eventually, Junaid began to introduce cold-pressed juices into his diet. Junaid’s juice journey led him to start Farmers Juice: (code: ketokamp) https://thefarmersjuice.com/ketokamp. [09:15] The Logistics Behind Farmers Juice
    Farmers Juice will deliver nationwide to the 48 states. In terms of the process, the first step is the plant lifecycle. There is a time where plants have peak nutrition. They catch the plants during that time and juice it then and there. Farmers Juice will use a lot of ugly produce that wouldn’t get placed in Whole Foods. Once they juice the plants, then they use an innovative technology that introduces cold water and high pressure from every angle. That pressure will neutralize all the negative pathogens and maintain the integrity of the juice for thirty days. [11:45] Keeping Farmers Juice In Your Fridge
    After you open the juice, drink it within three days. If you have no intention to drink the juice, don’t open it. If the juice hasn’t been opened, it will last thirty days in your fridge. [12:30] The Misconceptions Behind Cold-Pressed
    Most companies do not take the level of attention to make sure the plants are organic. Many juice companies are not organic because it’s more affordable. Farmers Juice will take the extra step to make sure it’s organic. Most juices are anywhere between eight and twelve dollars. Farmers Juice is $5.99 per juice. Lastly, most juices are high in sugar. Junaid has created keto-friendly juices working with Dave Asprey. [16:30] About Junaid’s Juices   
    The Greens Only box of juices is ketogenic and low glycemic. It includes 20 organic cold-pressed juices and ten shots. Many of the juices contain cucumber, dino kale, lemon, and ginger. All of the juices will give you a good energy boost. [23:10] The Benefits Of Juice On Mental Health
    It’s critical to love yourself and take care of yourself. One of the best ways to do that is to have healthy habits. Work on appreciating yourself through nutrition. When you have fast food, it changes how you felt for the rest of the day. When you eat s

    01:30 Video overview. Does too much protein kick you out of ketosis? The role electrolytes play with getting into ketosis fast. Why toxins might be the reason why you can’t get into ketosis. 
    02:00 The first reason why you aren’t in ketosis… too many carbohydrates. If you’ve wondered how many carbs you should eat to get into ketosis, you’ll find the answer here. Keep an eye out for carbohydrate creep. It’s important to read the ingredients list. Some people need to drop total carbohydrates to under 20 grams in order to achieve ketosis. 
     
    03:15 The second reason why you aren’t producing ketones… a process called electrolyte dumping. When your body transitions away from being a sugar burner to a fat burner, it releases excess water. When you don’t replenish electrolytes on keto, this can result in common symptoms when doing keto such as brain fog, the keto flu, and not feeling good on the keto diet. 
    Consume 1-2 teaspoons of high quality salt. I use Redmond’s Real Salt:
    Here are other ways to replenish your electrolytes and minerals on the ketogenic diet…

Can you practice intermittent fasting with the keto diet? Yes, they go hand in hand. However, fasting is a muscle you want to develop over time. 
     
    08:35 The number four reason why you can’t get into ketosis on keto…. Poor sleep and too much stress. Yes, too much stress will kick you out of ketosis. When cortisol is high, glucose follows and ketones drop. 
    Sleep deprivation and higher cortisol and insulin

    09:47 Sleep issues on keto? Follow these tips. 
    The Power of Sleep Book: https://amzn.to/3pJGLLz
    11:24 The fifth reason why you have low ketones on a ketogenic diet…. Toxins! This is the most common reason why people struggle to get into ketosis, or why you keep getting kicked out of ketosis. This is why you don’t feel good on keto. 
    The Fasting Trio: https://bit.ly/2WKSBrL
    Free Toxicity Quiz: http://www.toxicmiami.com
    15:30 The bonus reason why you can’t stay in ketosis …. Unstable fats such as vegetables oils and fish oil. 
    18:20 How fish oil is sabotaging your keto results. 
    STUDY: Page 251 in the PEO Solution:
    "21st Century Warning: 4½ Months to Rid Patients of the Damaging Fish Oil Excess21 It takes 18 weeks to reverse the negative effect of the incorporation of EPA / DHA from fish oil into the cell membrane. This four–month time frame is important to understand, as it coincides precisely with the time frame of significant vascular health improvement, that was accelerated by ceasing fish oil use, as shown in the IOWA screening experiment."
    20:20 3 proven ways to get into ketosis fast.
     MCT’s are 3 fatty acid groups with a glycerol backbone 
    Their metabolization is unique and gives us instant energy
    3 types of fats, short chain, medium and long chain
    C8 Caprylic has been shown to be the most efficient for ketone production
    MCT’s are not stored as fat, they are used for fuel and converted into ketones immediately
