Keto is the crazy fad diet of today, and with this excitement comes an excess of hype, misinformation, and a flawed approach. Host Brad Kearns talks about how to do keto the right way, with particular attention to doing the necessary prep work to develop metabolic fitness before you commence your first formal foray into nutritional ketosis. You'll learn why a regimented approach might be too stressful, and that the concept of refeeds and accordant strategies might be best addressed with Brian McAndrew's simple suggestion to not worry about it, because "life will give you refeeds." You'll learn how to stick it out if things get a little difficult early into keto, and how the most profound benefits are enjoyed when you complete a minimum six-week period of strict nutritional ketosis. You'll also learn about Brian's pre-existing commitment to keto that overrides any potential application of will power or decision fatigue on a day-to-day basis. Commit to a simple strategy where you choose from a list of approved foods and don't consider any outside options. Enjoy this informative show that will help you succeed with keto!

I’m not a big app guy, instead preferring to keep a loose running tally of how I’m eating, training, and living, but my understanding is that kids these days love smartphone apps. Besides, I often forget that not everyone lives and breathes this stuff. Not everyone geeks out over all the minutiae and maintains an extensive database of keto and Primal-related errata in their heads.

So today, I’m giving you a list of the top 9 keto (and keto-relevant) apps.

“There can be only one.”

It’s the iconic quote from the only good Highlander movie, referring to the eternal battle immortal warriors wage across time to become the last of their kind and gain special powers over all lesser beings. I won’t say there can be only one perfect diet, but it is fun—and illustrative—to compare and contrast the different diets, not so much as a “contest” but as a method for winnowing out the differences and giving readers an idea of what might work for them.

Today, I’m going to compare the Keto Reset (my particular Primal brand of the keto diet) to other popular diet trends.

First, what is keto all about?

Longtime readers of the blog are so inundated with the latest dietary research and results from years of personal experimentation that they often take the simple, basic dietary truths for granted. But it’s the simple ones that make the most difference. Today I’m going to sift through the knowledge base to winnow out the dietary truths that, while basic, fundamental, and important, are unknown or misinterpreted in the “normal population.” If you think someone you know or care about could learn from this list, send it along.

What follows are some basic dietary truths that everyone needs to understand.

It has many names and monikers.

Male menopause.

Andropause.

Age-related testosterone deficiency.

Hypogonadism.

Manopause, my personal favorite.

Although it isn’t as sharply defined as female menopause, male menopause is a catch-all for the gradual cascade of mental and physical health issues that men face as they approach and pass middle age and their testosterone drops. Wherever possible, I will insert “man” puns into the symptoms and conditions. Consider yourself warned.
