Keto was the most searched diet in 2020, with over 26 million google searches, while Intermittent Fasting was second, with over 11. million searches. But as we head into the last ¼ of 2021 I can safely say that we are now seeing a number of serious faults with ketogenic fasting world.

More and more people are running into hormonal issues, weight gain and a ton of weight loss resistance from the keto/fasting diet. So what is happening ….why are we seeing so many problems arise with this supposed magical weight loss diet. In this episode, my guest is going to give us the answers to these questions and is going to share with us the Big fat keto lies.

My guest today is Marty Kendall, who is the author of the book Big Fat Keto Lies. Marty is an engineer who seeks to optimize nutrition using a data-driven approach. His interest in nutrition began eighteen years ago in an effort to help his wife Monica gain better control of her Type 1 Diabetes. But since then, he has worked to develop a systematized approach to nutrition tailored for a wide range of goals.

Marty has been sharing his learnings at and has developed Nutrient Optimizer and Data-Driven Fasting to guide people on their journey of nutritional optimization.
