EMB #348 Keto Lifestyle 2

Part CEO, part personal development wonk,and part biohacker info geek, Thom King is a self-confessed serial entrepreneur. While his favorite book list contains many success-oriented and personal-development classics,the traditional definition of achieving success (e.g. make a lot of money) is not what inspires or motivates King. He follows more of a “you aren’t doing well unless you’re also doing some good” line of thinking. King’s company has been built around the simple principle of “do the right thing.”

In 1999, Thom’s personal passion for food and his concern over the explosion of metabolic disease led him to found Steviva Brands, now known as Icon Foods, with a mission to stem the tide of “diabesity” by providing consumers healthy alternatives to sugar. In recent years, his passion for food and optimal health have intersected with his embrace of a ketogenic (low carb, high fat) diet. Thom’s latest project is a line of ketogenic condiments intended to help more people successfully adopt a healthier lifestyle.

    Great info about the Keto Diet, thank you Drew for brining Thom on the discuss this, and he is the Stevia King! What a great combination!

    As a brain health specialist, specializing in dementia prevention and reversal, many folks in the middle to severe stages of dementia have severely improved their cognizance by following a strict keto diet. The brain is predominately fat, not just sitting around belly or hip type fat but intelligent fat, fat which has been stripped of energy and function by dementia. Bringing fat back into ‘play’, into production of energy in brain cells, greatly improves brain function.

    Thom mentioned the cerebral flush and this is part of the glymphatic system, the brain’s cleaning and healing system which is predominately active at night while you sleep. Thus the importance on continual deep sleep 7 hours minimum, preferably 8 or more each night.

    Keto is not for everyone, but works remarkably well to restore cognitive function. For those suffering from MCI or mild cognitive impairment, my suggestion is NOT a direct keto 3 day fast(if they can do it fabulous but most with MCI cannot) , but rather a gentle keto and paleo rotation, alternating every week, for the rest of their lives. Thank you for getting the word out! Helping you keep your memory, have good brain health and age successfully, Janet— http://www.JanetRichPittman.com
