If you're like me you need a boost to get back to a clean low-carb diet. What better way than a Mexican Fiesta with your old (and some new) keto friends? I've held many keto dinner parties at my house, and Mexican food is always a hit! Julie Fox-McClure is making keto and gluten-free tortillas from her amazing mix. Start with a frozen margarita made with allulose and fresh lime juice! Enjoy a bowl of fried pork rinds with gooey chorizo queso dip and home-made salsas. Build your own fajitas and enchiladas with all the veggies (fresh, grilled, and/or pickled), cheeses, guac, and crema! Top off the night with Julie's amazing flan! Those other people can eat protein bars! We're having a party!

My story is all too common. I spent the first 50 years of my life abusing my body, like most of us. I'm a software developer, and spent many days and nights sitting on my butt eating poorly, and not getting any exercise. Every time I tried to exercise it was just too painful. It didn't feel like something I could do, and I didn't have the grit to push through it.

Learning about the destructive power of sugar in general, and fructose in particular, I got rid of most of it. I stopped drinking soda, stopped eating sugary fruits, and swore off fruit juice. That was phase one. However, I still loved my ice cream and all manner of desserts. Of course, bread was a big part of my life, as it is with all of us. It was a good start, and probably prevented me from gaining weight quickly. However, over the years, weight just piled on.

I had used a low carb diet to lose weight twice before, with good results. But it wasn't until February 1, 2016 that I completely threw myself into the ketogenic diet - learning all the science, separating truth from fiction, and cooking for myself (mostly). I have Richard Morris, my good friend from Canberra, Australia, to thank for sharing his vast knowledge of nutrition science. Once it was obvious what was going on, we started the podcast 2 Keto Dudes.

My blood sugar dropped to normal levels, my trigycerides dropped, my blood pressure dropped, my HDL rose, and my LDL is slowly returning to normal. Oh yeah, in 6 months I lost 76 pounds. In March I stopped taking Metformin and statins. In April my doctor, concerned about heart disease, ordered a carotid artery scan, which came back negative.

In September, 2016 I decided I was going to dedicate the second half of my life to saving as many lives as I can, or at least being a catalyst for personal change. Eating keto was the easiest, most fun, most rewarding thing I've ever done for myself. It was difficult at first, especially to put aside long-held beliefs about eating fat. I just had to constantly revisit the science. I obviously got over it.

Richard and I give all of this valuable information away for free. You can download our 23-page booklet, The Ketogenic Diet in a Nutshell for free. You can read 3 critical scientific studies on the 2 Keto Dudes Blog and you can see more videos, books, and science from my personal blog post, Critical Research in Support of the Ketogenic Diet.
