Podcast: Siim Land: Bad Keto Diet Advice with Richard Nikoley

The World's First 1-on-1 Bootcamp, Exclusively For Men.

This was a pretty decent podcast, where I’m interviewed this time. Seems to have been well received, with almost 5,700 views so far. The comments on YouTube, nearly 230 at this point, are about what you’d expect, at a glance.

Here’s Siim’s root post. Here are his notes from the post:

“Eat as much fat as you want and don’t count calories”

Ever heard that sort of advice from a keto guru?

The ketogenic diet is becoming more popular than ever before. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of false information and bad advice that gets spread around.

Welcome to the Body Mind Empowerment Podcast. I’m your host Siim Land and our guest is Richard Nikoley. Richard is a blogger, entrepreneur, and author. He also runs the Facebook group Ketotard Chronicles that dissects the stupidity from the rest.

I started writing Free The Animal in late 2003 as just a little thing to try. 20 years later, turns out I've written over 5,000 posts. I blog what I wish...from diet, health, lifestyle...to philosophy, politics, social antagonism, adventure travel, expat living, location and time independent—while you sleep— income by geoarbitrage, and food pics. I intended to travel the world "homeless," but the Covidiocy Panicdemic squashed that. I became an American expat living in Thailand. I celebrate the audacity and hubris to live by your own exclusive authority and take your own chances. ... I leave the toilet seat up. Read More

    Enjoyed the talk. If you manage to get off on your “travels with Charlie” how about doing a daily or weekly 3minute YouTube piece. The world will still need to hear from you and I’ve a feeling it would explode.
