Have you ever wondered what my morning and evening routines look like?

Or how I power down each night?

Maybe you’re curious to learn how I juggle running a business and working out with staying in ketosis.

If questions like these have ever come up, today’s podcast episode is for you.

I’m Dr. Anthony Gustin, the founder of Perfect Keto, and in this episode, I sit down to answer more of your top keto questions.

But this Q&A is a little different than the last three I’ve done.

For the first half of the episode, I’ll share a peek into what a typical day looks like for me, including what I eat, and how I workout.

I’ll also talk about how long I’ve been following a keto diet, what I wish I knew sooner, and the difference between a DC and MD.

From there, Chris Irvin, our Head of Education and The Ketologist, and I dive into improving mental health and the truth about fiber.
If you’re out there following a lot of people whose lives look super glamorous, you forget about your life in the present, which leads to a lot of mental dis-ease. Click To Tweet

We also tackle whether or not we’d follow carnivore again and why exogenous ketones give some people stomach upsets.

As a special treat for tuning in, you’ll also get a sneak peek into the latest Perfect Keto products that are already in the pipeline.

And if that wasn’t enough, you’ll even discover the one celebrity I’d punch in the face.

For any readers wondering more about me, I’m a board-certified chiropractor and functional medicine practitioner, on top of founding Perfect Keto.

Since shifting out of my clinical practice, I’ve made it my mission to help as many people as possible achieve optimal health and well-being.

I do this through educational pieces — such as this podcast — and by creating high-quality, clean, keto-friendly products to make living low-carb easier and tastier.

Another thing you’ll learn about me in this episode is that I use social media intentionally and with purpose.

So while I share my knowledge to over 115k followers, I make sure my social media use doesn’t consume me or create negative energy.

I’ll show you how that’s possible in this episode.
