The ketogenic diet is generating a lot of buzz these days. Headlines often refer to it as a fad, Atkins 2.0, and even warn of its potential issues long-term. But let's all remember this important fact: there isn’t one perfect diet suited for all humans. From bio-individuality to lifestyle differences, we all operate a little differently.
If done correctly, the ketogenic diet can be a powerful tool for burning fat, finding mental clarity, and improving digestion.

Additionally, Drew taps into the mindset shifts and emotional breakthroughs that are part of any lifestyle change.
