Brian McAndrew, the man behind the scenes of all of Primal’s audio and video production efforts, takes the stage again as the honored guest on the keto-themed podcast. At the age of 31, Brian has had quite a healthy journey of vast exploration and deep immersion. He’s been hard-core keto for over two years, all the while pursuing ambitious goals in the weight room. Brian’s experiences include: dealing with a serious parasite infection contracted while swimming in an African pond (hey it’s hot in Sierra Leone for an Oregon coast boy!); plunging into the trendy LA juice bar health scene and digging a hole from veganism and chronic cardio; getting big into the familiar combo of Paleo and Crossfit; getting a burnt out on Crossfit and transitioning into a pattern of MAF pace cardio workouts along with high-intensity strength training.
Brian is constantly tweaking and testing on our behalf and today has a very groovy rhythm of simple, delicious meals, eating enough food to fuel his ambitious workouts, not stressing about testing his ketone numbers, and enjoying occasional departures from keto followed by effortless recalibrations. This is a very informative show where Brian shares insights from many resources; he processes and consumes a ton of podcasts and has 12,000 followers on his Instagram account (@WholeDoods) despite rarely writing anything more than, “I’m eating this” or showing pictures of his cute one-year-old daughter.
Brian’s meals on Instagram and Brad’s underground recipe videos have become so popular that the duo are working on a top-secret book for lazy doods who want to cook keto but can’t be bothered to follow complex recipes.
