EP207: Detox, Hormonal Optimization & Breaking Through Keto Plateaus with Ben Azadi


The ketogenic diet can be a powerful tool for weight loss, craving reduction, brain health and perhaps even longevity. 

BUT (and that’s a big but) there are many simple mistakes that can negate all of these benefits and leave you feeling frustrated and burnt out. 

For example - did you know that consuming the wrong type of oils has been shown to cause inflammation in your body for over 100 days after!?

It sounds crazy but it’s true, so if you want all the juicy details on how to reduce inflammation, optimize hormone levels (listen up, keto ladies!), detox and how to avoid the #1 reason people fail on the keto diet, tune in to this week’s incredible podcast with the founder of Keto Kamp, Ben Azadi!
