I’m just finishing up listening to this amazing episode! It’s totally enlightening really! My lady has been suffering from lack of weight loss, lack of energy, just not getting all the benefits of Keto despite doing everything, we’ve tried zero carb, cutting dairy, cutting everything, just eating meat and eggs. When Amy went down that list of symptoms it was like she knew my lady! One of the things I do find in the Keto community is when you come to a group with an issue of not losing weight, they always point to not hitting macros, cheating, not being honest. That becomes so very frustrating, Though I think we will look into the thyroid issues and see if we can find a resolution. Thank you @Daisy

I’ve enjoyed this episode a lot and I’ve listened to it several times already. Thanks for the interview.


So many people need to listen to this and really GET IT. You don’t need to pile on fat, if you have body fat to lose. The object is to burn THAT fat.


I agree although there is a balance to be had. You don’t need to pile on fat needlessly but you don’t need to scrimp on it either. I have a feeling that there are a large number of people who are talking about the same sort of level of intake of fat but have a distorted view of what other people’s “high fat” is. I feel like maybe we need to answer a short questionnaire to gauge what someone’s context is before arguing about how much fat is a good thing! There is a part of me that bristles when people start saying that others eat too much fat but then there is a part that agrees if the “too much” is what I consider to be too much. But my acceptable level might be someone else’s idea of too much and on it goes. It’s a bit of a minefield really but there is certainly a camp out there that thinks eating to a very high set goal s a good thing just as there is a camp that is determined to stick to low fat. I prefer to stay somewhere safely in the middle even if I have to pick splinters out of my bum from sitting on the fence :smiley:


Very true. A lot of people are still fat phobic.


What I like about a recent post of Amy is about how she hates that everyone seems off track and will scream if anyone asks her about “macros” again.

stop eating bad carbs and eat whole foods and KCKO

She is the reason I started keto, my mentor!
