What can folks expect from your class?

JR: Attendees can expect a clear depiction of the science of ketogenics and how following a ketogenic lifestyle can, not only promote weight loss, but can be use a form of disease treatment and prevention. At Keto Rocs we believe holistic healing and using food and keto as the cure for Epilepsy, Fatty Liver Disease, ADD/ADHD, Adrenal fatigue, Alzheimer disease, Autoimmune disease, hormonal imbalances, PCOS and Diabetes

What is the most important lesson you’ve learned in your area of expertise?

JR: I’ve tried every diet from the Mediterranean diet, Paleo, Atkins, and the Tim Ferris diet,but nothing gave me the weight loss gains like following a ketogenic lifestyle. I lost 55lbs in 4 months. The most important lesson I’ve learned is people may not have the same results I did,or other clients may have. People are different and you should take individuals medical history in consideration when coaching people. Women are different from men when it comes to weight loss, trainers and nutritionist need to be aware of how hormones play a big factor in
health and wellness.

How do you balance personal and self care time with your business and teaching commitments?

JR: It’s a challenge balancing my career with my passion project of health and wellness. I must be diligent in answering text messages and emails about questions and menu approvals. I normally spend my days off on conference calls with clients. Clients often send me pictures of plates, menus and meal plans which helps but having a phone conversation is normally only by appointment.

What accomplishment are you most proud of in 2019?

JR:  am most proud of starting Keto Rocs and helping 20 clients reach their
individual goals.

What project are you most excited about coming up in 2020?
