Death to Low Carb Diets? Ft Kate Deering – Episode 202

Posted by Jason Ferruggia

Have the diets you’ve followed so far failed to help you achieve the body and health that you want? Would you like to actually understand your metabolism and know how to improve it?

If so, Episode 202 of the #RenegadeRadioPodcast will revolutionize your approach to nutrition.

After years of training and following mainstream diet advice Kate’s body began to break down.  While searching for the ways to look and feel better she was introduced to the work of Dr. Ray Peat and many other nutrition experts.  Within one year of reading, researching, and personal experimentation she was able to heal her body and her metabolism.  To learn how you can do the same listen as we discuss:
