(Ep. 12) The Science of Ketosis with Ben Azadi

On this episode of The Beats with Kelly Kennedy, Ben Azadi joins me to talk about what keto is and how that relates to teaching your body to burn fat. Ben went from being depressed and clinically obese to lowering his body fat to 6% and becoming a keto educator. In this episode, he debunks widely believed myths about fats and provides a helpful list of all the bad fats you should throw out and the good fats you should be consuming more. Ben shares his tips and hacks for keto and talks about using keto as a tool for healing, not a forever diet.
