On today’s show is Yemeni Mesa. Yemeni is the president of Know Foods, a company that makes low-carb bread and other treats that are grain-, gluten-, soy-, and dairy-free and so don’t produce a glucose spike. He is also a former bodybuilder and has been in the business of health and fitness for over 20 years. Know Foods aims to solve a common problem for those on low-carb or keto diets—how to still enjoy those foods that you might miss so much! He’s been a big proponent of the keto diet, and still manages to eat his own products all the time. During our chat we unpack his personal story and journey. We look at the different companies with which he has worked. We also talk about the ingredients, the unique sweetener, allulose, that is vital to his products, and how you can have your cake and be keto too! It’s all coming up, so listen in—you do not want to miss this episode!
