Moving Beyond Keto:  Burn Fat, Lose Weight & Boost Performance

Tim’s story of overcoming obstacles and making life-changing decisions for better health offers an empowering template to empower yourself to attain “Higher Health & Peak Performance” at any age.

In this podcast clip,, Tim McConnell shares his health recovery journey from facing severe chronic health challenges, to taking control of his health and totally transforming his weight, health and fitness.  Tim started his path to wellness with exercise and a standard American Diet. Naturally, the weight he lost came right back in spite of the exercise. This led Tim to the ketogenic diet. The weight started coming off and stayed off but there was a problem . . . Tim would find himself completely drained and famished from a 40 mile ride because he lacked strength and endurance on Keto.  

By coincidence, Tim caught a Vespa ad on his Facebook feed leading him to try Vespa and go down the rabbit hole of OFM.  The result of adopting Vespa and OFM was and continues to be transformational. Tim has lost the excess weight and keeps it off while maintaining the strength and endurance to ride 100 miles and then do chores before he sits down to a meal.
