Joshua Perry was born and raised on Cape Cod, MA where he developed his passion for BMX bike riding. He moved to Greenville, NC when he was 17 to pursue a career as a pro-BMX athlete and to ride with the best riders in the world. Josh won his first pro contest as well as the best trick contest, winning him a brand new Harley Davidson motorcycle. Following his big win, Josh made his first X-Games appearance and continued competing in the Dew Action Sports Tour (2007-2013).

In March of 2010, a hard crash on his bike led Josh to the hospital in fear of a head traumatic brain injury (TBI). After almost a year of migraines, bouts of temporary blindness, and being repeatedly told that nothing was wrong, an MRI to rule out a concussion revealed a mass taking up the entirety of the left side of his brain. At the young age of 21, Josh faced mortality.

In April of 2010, Josh underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor taking up the entire left side of his brain. This was a major turning point for him and put him on track to learn about nutrition and take better care of himself.

Suzanne Ryan discovered the ketogenic diet in January 2015, and it completely changed her life. When she started keto, Suzanne weighed 289 pounds, and her energy level and self-esteem were at an all-time low. She felt tired, sick, and frustrated by her inability to stick to a healthy diet. After just one year, she had lost 100 pounds and developed a new mind-set surrounding food. Suzanne is currently down 120 pounds, and she’s passionate about helping others find the same success.

Suzanne began talking about her weight-loss journey, offering encouragement, and sharing tips and recipes on her YouTube channel, Keto Karma. She also has a popular blog, Keto Karma, where she posts helpful information, recipes, grocery hauls, and other keto-related tools and advice. Suzanne deeply believes that people should look within themselves and realize that they already have everything they need to change their lives for the better.

Suzanne has appeared on: The Today Show, Live with Kelly & Ryan and The Dr. Oz Show. Her work has also been featured in: First for Women, Women’s Health, Closer Weekly, Health Theory, Woman’s World, Insider, Reader’s Digest, Shape, Harper’s Bazaar, Popculture.com and more.

Suzanne lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, Mick, and her daughter, Olivia.
