  1. Wondering what’s happening with the Diet Beta Test…I signed up and paid the fee and haven’t heard anything since the confirmation email.

  2. I listened to this a few days ago and tweaked my diet. What a change! I’ve tried ketogenic diets before but it’s never been this effective. I know Jimmy isn’t a fan of the test strips, but I had some one hand and this is the first time I have measurable ketones. I’ve lost 4 pounds in 4 days. I LOVE what I’m eating (cheese sauce on my sauteed chicken is ok?! YES!) I feel amazing! Thank you both so much!

  3. Interesting. I’m getting myself set up to try this. Have been trying to loose 20# by doing high protein, complex carb and eating every 2 hours. I basically have to hover around home to be able to eat this clean, which is tough when we travel for sports etc. I did ok on it, but as soon as I stopped, I gained my weight back. i really need a lifestyle change vs. a diet. Finger’s crossed this will work!

  4. Hello! Just listened to this podcast today and I’m curious if there’s a few tips/tricks for beginners? Do I really just start with bacon and eggs?
