My guest today is Tyler Cartwright, Tyler is one of the founders of Ketogains, an organization dedicated to helping people not just lose weight, but also, in their words, pursue physical excellence via ketosis. In my opinion they’re one of the best organizations out there in the keto community, summed up nicely as part of their mission statement: “chase results, not ketones”, and another part which states “always follow the science”.

As it’s gained popularity, the dialogue around keto has gotten pretty divisive and vitriolic in my opinion. People have begun treating a high fat diet as the cure to all ills, disregarding all contrary evidence in the process. This type of blind faith and disregard of the evidence is the antithesis of the science-based reasoning that brought myself and many others to keto in the first place. The conversation I had with Tyler is VERY different from the one I expected to have, and I’m quite happy with that fact!

In this chat Tyler and I discuss his own story and how he went from 505 pounds to his current 225 with keto, the importance of the context of ones own life on how they should structure their macronutrient requirements, how to have a civilized debate, the pros and cons of the “citizen scientist” movement, and far more than I could summarize here!

So enjoy this wide ranging and insightful conversation with Tyler Cartwright, co-founder of Ketogains.
