I tried powering my way through this one episode, but it quickly became obvious that these two don't know anything more about keto than anyone else who has picked it up and done it as a hobby. Once they GUESSED that breast milk does not contain lactose (which it DOES) it was time to bail. Side note: My personal belief that any female incapable of properly pronouncing her T's doesn't know what the hell she's talking about remains undefeated.

honestly, you guys talk about anything but your episode titles. the podcast should be named, "whatever my wife or husband and i feel like blurting out." this one had absolutely nothing to do with unrealistic expectations for weight loss, except for a few sentences in the beginning. I listened to at least five or six shows and have found just a little bit of valuable information that kept me coming back but after listening to this I'm done. no one is getting any value out of this. this literally sounds like a husband-and-wife chatting back and forth and being all over the place.

thank you for helping me understand that my journey is not like anyone else's. I 18 lbs my first 3 months and I had to remove myself from the forums. everyone was losing much more than me and I got discouraged a bit.. but I haven't given up. I had to really understand that I lift everyday and my body was shedding,but retaining muscle. your pod casts help! ty tons
