For today's episode, we are so happy to welcome back Yemeni Mesa! For those unfamiliar, Yemeni has spent many years and most of his life in the health, fitness and nutrition world and since his career in competitive bodybuilding in the 1990s has started and worked on several notable and influencing paleo food brands. He also has a new company called Heka Good Foods, dedicated to creating delicious keto snacks and bars with all the ingredients you really want! In our conversation today, we are focussing Yemeni's expertise around ingredients, particularly those confusing lists you find on supposedly healthy foods and items at the store. We discuss sugars, fibers, net carbs and more so that you can know what you are really getting in the foods you buy. Yemeni breaks down allulose, stevia, erythritol, Sucralose and more!
