(Ep. 37) Becoming Metabolically Flexible with Ben Azadi

On this week of The Beats, Kelly Kennedy sits down for a second time with her good friend and founder of Keto Kamp, Ben Azadi. During their conversation they touch on an abundance of topics, but a single theme persists: the importance of flexibility and consistency. Although they may seem contradictory, when combined–health is the result.

There are so many variables that play a part in our overall health and Ben does an awesome job at focusing in on the variables that create the most impactful and beneficial results. He is known as ‘The Health Detective’ because he investigates dysfunction, and he educates, not medicates, to bring the body back to normal function. Ben is the founder of Keto Kamp; a global brand bringing awareness to ancient healing strategies such as the keto diet and fasting.

Ben is a resource that never stops flowing, please make sure to checkout his website BenAzadi.com. He has books, courses, podcasts, case studies and so much more!! He is also very active on instagram @thebenazadi and his YouTube channel Keto Kamp.
