Fat Guy Forum Episode 18 - What's Gormy Eating?

This episode of Fat Guy Forum is pretty different! We'll see what you think! I gathered your questions about my eating on my ketogenic weight loss journey after the last solo Gormy episode and took to the mic to answer them to the best of my ability.  A couple of caveats! First, I am no doctor or coach, what you get here is my opinion. Please look into the things that interest you and work with your doctor if you're going to make a dietary change! I dive into some of my original meal ideas and approach, and how I approach things now working with my Deeper State Keto Coach Jon Shane aka @theketoroad, we talk the challenges of approaching macros and keto science, and I even start to talk about what comes next for me.  I will say there were some tech issues, that I hope won't ruin the episode! There's an unidentified scratching noise I did my best to squelch. Instead of scrapping the whole thing I am pushing forward. We'll see how it goes, right?? I hope you find some interesting or helpful advice in this one! Find Gormy on IG at @gormy_goes_keto, Twitter at @gormygoesketo and you can email the show at  TheFatGuyForum@gmail.com!
