Episode 30: Clearing Up The Keto Confusion & Finding YOUR MetFlex

podcast Jun 27, 2020

Today’s episode is a little different than normal Friday solo episodes. I’m going to share the podcast I did with Genova Diagnostics on their show called The Lab Report


Description from The Lab Report Podcast Website:

Rachel Gregory is a Board Certified Nutritionist, a health and wellness specialist, author, and the owner of MetFlex Life, a platform that provides educational content as well as coaching services in achieving optimal health. She champions the ketogenic lifestyle, but also advocates for a more tailored approach as opposed to a cookie-cutter method for her clients. Rachel is also the author of the 21-Day Ketogenic Diet Weight Loss Challenge book, a weight loss guide that follows the ketogenic lifestyle with recipes and exercise programs.

Rachel joins us to share what it means to be metabolically flexible and how it relates to the ketogenic diet. She describes how she became passionate about training and nutrition. She explains how to make the ketogenic diet work for you and why it’s normal for a woman to struggle with the diet. Rachel also discusses the importance of accountability as well as addressing other points that affect your overall wellness, such as sleep.

“Ketosis is not a fad; it is a metabolic state.” - Rachel Gregory
