My name is Brian Williamson. I’m a 40-something husband and father of three. I’ve been active my whole life (running, martial arts, lifting, etc.), but I can’t say I’ve always been healthy. I have topped the scales at 270 pounds (I’m 6’2″). My journey toward a ketogenic lifestyle began with some research into methods to alleviate the affects of epilepsy (one of my children has epilepsy). Ketogenic diets have been used for close to 100 years for helping people with epilepsy. That research led me to discover the science behind the ketogenic way of life, and allowed me the tools needed to accomplish the health and fitness goals I wanted achieve. I have helped convert several of my friends to the ketogenic lifestyle and they are reaping the benefits, too.
By adopting the ketogenic way of life, I have lost 60 pounds, improved my mental and physical health, and started enjoying life.
