(Q&A #11) - Keto and Gut Health, Adjusting Carb and Fiber Intake, Eating Fat for Better Health, and Pregnancy Advice

We’re so far away from eating foods we should be eating, which leads us to being diabetic, fat, sick, or low in energy. Click To Tweet

There’s been close to twenty episodes published since Chris Irvin, our Education Manager at Perfect Keto, the co-author of our book Keto Answers, and The Ketologist, and I sat down for our last Q&A and we have a ton of great updates to share since then.

Thanks to our awesome listeners like you, the questions keep pouring in, which is why we knew we had to come together for another Q&A episode.

This time, we’re answering questions like:

Are you guys still following a keto diet?

What does your current carb and fiber intake look like these days?

Do you eat breakfast?

Do you avoid nightshades?

Do you change your protein intake throughout the year?

Chris and I also chat about the latest pregnancy advice and how this is beyond outdated, the harmful ingredients found in formula, and what really makes up breastmilk.

We also dive into stearic acid, linoleic acid, and how the different types of fat affects our health, and so much more.

This is another jam-packed Q&A episode you don’t want to miss.

Many things in health — sleep, diet, exercise, etc. — are really just things we have to focus on and pay attention to and put energy into. Click To Tweet

If this is your first time tuning in, my name is Dr. Anthony Gustin and I’m a board-certified chiropractor, a functional medicine practitioner, and the founder of Perfect Keto and Equip Foods.

It’s my belief that our artificial habitats have forced us into having artificial health problems and this show is my attempt to dive deep into topics like nutrition, sleep, movement, relationships, and more so you can reclaim your natural state of health.

In this episode, Chris Irvin, our Education Manager at Perfect Keto, the co-author of our book Keto Answers, and The Ketologist, joins me to answer more great questions from our listeners.
