Moving away from a vegetarian diet transformed Randy Webb’s health

Keto Chat Episode 14 is with Randy Webb, Licensed Professional Counselor in Arizona and Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington. Randy was my counseling internship supervisor when I was completing my graduate degree in 2012, and at that time, he was a vegetarian. When I went to visit Phoenix in March 2016, I was excited to talk to Randy about a couple of  the therapies he’s passionate about. But then I discovered that he had a big surprise for me regarding his diet!

What we talk about:

  • Randy’s surprise development of metabolic syndrome, fatigue, sleep trouble, and kidney issues when he was eating, what he thought was, a health diet.
  • His journey from a low-fat, high carb, vegetarian diet to a lower carb, omnivorous diet
  • Who inspired Randy to look at his diet and give up oatmeal and consider eating sardines for breakfast
  • What health improvements he’s seen since changing his diet
  • Which dietary change had the biggest impact on his health markers
  • How Randy became interested in hypnotherapy
  • How trauma can lead to mindless eating, emotional eating, or stress eating and what can be done about it
  • How EMDR therapy empowers a person to build their own internal resources for health and well-being as opposed to other talk therapy that focuses on identifying and changing what is “wrong” with a person

Jim Kellner shares how hypnosis helped him lose weight on a low carb approach

While I was in Phoenix, Arizona a few weeks ago, I sat down with Jim Kellner in his office to chat about how hypnosis can help change habits to support weight loss. Jim is a hypnotherapist and comedian, and as it turned out, Jim had used hypnosis himself to lose weight on a low carb, nearly ketogenic diet.

Watch and listen as we have fun chatting about how stage hypnosis differs from hypnotherapy for optimal performance.

And stick around until the end where Jim hypnotizes me! Do I quack like a duck or bark like a dog? Or do I make Jim a pie?

Speaking of pie, here is my Keto Chocolate Cream Pie recipe that we talk about in the video.
