Live Simply Podcast: Keto 101 with Dr. Josh Axe

I’ve received many questions over the past year on the topic of keto, and being someone who hasn’t practiced keto or spent a lot of time researching it, I’ve been hesitant to share anything on this subject. When I saw Dr. Axe was coming out with a book on this subject, I knew he was the perfect guest to have on the show.

Live Simply Podcast: Keto Explained with Dr. Josh Axe

I personally don’t follow the keto diet, and don’t plan on doing so anytime soon. Keto is a variation of a real food lifestyle and one that can be followed for specific reasons, as Dr. Axe shares. I wanted to talk with Dr. Axe about this topic since it’s such a trending subject and there’s a lot of information out there and a lot of myths.  If you’re considering keto, I hope today’s episode helps you navigate this way of eating in a responsible and body-friendly way. Dr. Axe is a wealth of information on this subject.
