Ketogenic dieting is such a big buzzword right now, but there’s a lot of misinformation surrounding it, especially when it comes to using it for metabolic flexibility. How can we use ketosis to burn fat, without it controlling our whole lives? Why is fasting one of the most powerful metabolic tools we have in our health toolkit? How do anger, resentment and hate destroy our physical health? On this episode, I’m joined by the founder of Keto Kamp, Ben Azadi. He shares on the tools we can use to optimize ourselves mentally, spiritually and physically.
Keto and the Atkins diet are not the same. Atkins did not focus on the quality of the fats; it was high fat, high protein and low carb. Keto is high healthy fat, moderate protein and low carb.
Instead of taking energy, blood flow and resources to digest food, when we fast, all that energy gets used to heal the body, fuel the brain and tap into the divine.
There’s a big difference between what you need to do to gain health and longevity, and what it takes to put on size. Your eating should be tied to your goals.
Studies have shown that the amount of silver fillings in people’s mouths is proportional to the amount of mercury they have in their brains. Ceramic fillings are toxin-free alternative.
At the start of the show, Ben shared the transformation he had in his life, and how reading and taking responsibility were the key to the change. Next, Ben shared on the ketogenic diet, and how it differs from Atkins. We also talked about the big lie we’ve been told about mercury fillings, and how to use fasting for autophagy.

Ketogenic dieting is a tool we can use to reset our metabolism, reduce cellular inflammation and teach our bodies to burn fat for fuel. If we’re doing it right, it can allow us to meet our weight loss goals, but still give us the freedom to flex in and out of ketosis. The goal should be to use optimization techniques like this and fasting to improve our quality of life, but that doesn’t just mean in the physical sense. We also need to work on self-awareness, self-love and gratitude. Ultimately, we’re born with an empty bucket, and emotional stressors/bad health fill it up very quickly. Once all the toxic stuff overflows, that’s when we get serious illnesses, and life slips out of our hands.
