The Keto Masterclass with Robb Wolf

Nov. 22, 2017

This episode is a roundtable discussion with Tommy Wood, MD, PhD and New York Times best-selling author Robb Wolf on Robb’s new Keto Masterclass, a 45-day program to kickstart your keto lifestyle.

The masterclass is an online training course that I completed ahead of recording this episode. Think of the class as a comprehensive instruction manual complete with troubleshooting guide for fat loss and improved metabolic health. If you’re brand new, the course is perfect for you. If you’ve been living the lifestyle for some time, it may still be helpful to read the manual to see if there’s anything you’ve missed.
