How Keto Saved My Life


 When I was in the Army National Guard, and young (see what I did there?), I was athletic, I maxed out my PT tests, I was a sponsored competing adventure race athlete, I worked out at least 2 hours a day and ran and biked at least 100 miles a week. As "healthy" and "athletic" I looked to the outside world, I had a secret. 

My secret was that I was plagued by medical issues, some trivial like chronic adult acne, frequent constipation and acid re-flux.  Some serious, I suffered with crippling frequent migraines, anxiety and depression, daily headaches, low blood sugar episodes so extreme that I would have dangerous passing out episodes. I was young, athletic and of average body weight....but I was sick. It seemed like I was at the doctor’s office once a month, I was on several medications (all of which hardly helped at all) and my quality of life was continuing to decline. On top of all that, I was gaining weight, slowly over the years and I was at my top weight of my adult life.

About 5 years ago, at the age of 35, out of desperation for dealing with my continued low blood sugar episodes and the fact that I was continuing to gain weight despite a high level of physical activity and "eating healthy" I turned to Dr Google. I just Googled "eating plans for hypoglycemics" and stumbled upon this thing called keto. Being extremely skeptical, I picked up a few books on the subject and started listening to keto based podcasts. I was astounded by how ignorant I was about the ways the human body operates and how I had been doing so many things in my life thinking they were "healthy choices", yet it actually was the worst choice for the way my body worked. I devised a plan. I was very afraid of having dangerous low blood sugar, so I created my own eating plan that slowly got me to a ketogenic way of eating over 90 days (these eventually became the Fire Team Whiskey .22, .38 and .50 CAL eating plans). 

What happened next, I still look back and consider a miracle. Within a week my acne started clearing up. Within 2, my sleep and mood began to improve. The constant fatigue I fought was gone in 30 days. All of a sudden, I had endless energy and had no need to overdose on caffeine each day to push through like I used to. The acid reflux and constipation dissipated. My anxiety and depression subsided into almost nothing. My headaches and migraines? GONE! The fat began to melt away. Pretty soon I was having to donate my clothes, buying 2 sizes down...then over time, 4 sizes down! 

At the age of 40, I am now fitter, healthier and have the lowest body fat I have ever had. I am on zero medications. I haven't seen a doctor in 4 years. 

While my health and fitness transformation was taking place, I was working in the military medical field. I sat down with Soldiers everyday suffering from the same stuff I had suffered from and even worse. I felt compelled to create a company to introduce the ketogenic way of life to other military members, veterans and first responders. That is how Fire Team Whiskey was born. 

I truly believe these programs saved my life. I started on the path to lifelong health, fitness and living free from all chronic medical complaints that most people have at the age of 40. It is not just me, but many other Fire Team Whiskey participants who have experienced the weight loss and medical health improvements from using our programs. 

Sure, you can try doing a keto diet on your own. But, with so much misinformation out there about this way of eating, you would be going in blind. Why wouldn't you get a guide that has already been proven and has gotten other people crazy amazing results? I don't know about you, but I am all about using a map when I travel instead of just trying to figure it out as you go along with the "go it alone" approach. 

My goal with Fire Team Whiskey is to save lives. In fact, I am so confident that you will see instant improvement in your health and fitness within 2 weeks of starting one of our programs, that we are willing to give you 2 weeks of our .22 Caliber Health and Fitness program completely free. This is the same program that I used when I first began this journey 5 years ago. 

I want to give you what I spent months reading books, listening to podcasts and experimenting with to put together absolutely free so you don't have to "go it alone" or spend months doing your own research and experimentation to get results. You can START TODAY. 

Remember, this is a long-term commitment. If you are looking for a crash diet to lose a few pounds then put right back on again plus some, then this program is not for you. If you are looking for a magic pill or shot, this program is not for you. If you are looking for a long term solution that is proven to help you lose weight over time, improve all of your medical health markers and have you feeling younger and healthier than you have ever felt in your life, then you have found your fire team! Since this is a journey and not a sprint, our Fire Team Whiskey Membership is for one year. This helps you make a long-term commitment to your health and fitness. 2 weeks for free, then after that, you pay $99 for 365 days of health. That is .28 cents a day. Wow. What a bargain! That is way cheaper than any gym membership you could purchase, and your gym doesn't even bother giving you any nutrition support (actually there are a few chains of gyms that happily feed you bagels and pizza on a weekly basis at the gym location to make sure you will always feel like you need them because you can’t seem to lose any weight...hmmm). 

2 weeks free of what took me months to research, experiment with and formalize. This gets you started on this journey faster. Start Now.
