If you have ever been confused, frustrated, or downright angry at following the standard typical nutritional advice put out by people who you trust with your health and nutrition then this challenge is for you. Dispensing with the B.S and providing you with the actual WHY you haven't achieved success in the past and WHY you will within the next 47-days and beyond.
This isn't a Challenge, this is your LIFE!
Becoming ‘Keto-Adapted' is the process of changing your metabolism from depending mostly on glucose for your fuel to ketones. In other words, switching from using carbs as your fuel source to fat. It does take time for the metabolism to adjust to such a dramatic change but the changes you will feel will be evident within days, but the benefits and improvements will continue for many weeks and months to come.
What is the Ketogenic Diet and the 47-Day Challenge?
The 47-Day Ketogenic Nutrition Challenge is the beginning of your defiance against everything we have ever been taught about what is really a healthy diet; it requires you to open your mind, let go of government nutritional inventions based on how much money it can make for that industry and instead focuses on scientific and real-world based knowledge and application.
Ketogenic or keto or low carb high fat (LCHF) is a way of eating that has been around since the dawn of man. It's been used to ward off and reverse some major diseases including most cancers, epileptic seizures, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, obesity and a whole lot more.
‘The most beneficial aspect of a strongly ketogenic environment and metabolism is that they protect us from nearly all the modern diseases plaguing us today, including heart disease and obesity.'
– John Kiefer
Think of this as a lifestyle that takes you away from all the bad stuff. So it kind of is an elimination diet as well. And the most important thing we are eliminating is carbohydrates.
There are essential amino acids (protein) and their are essential fatty acids (fats), but there is no such thing as an essential carbohydrate. The carbs we want to get rid of are the ones that spike blood sugar and result in an insulin release: things like processed foods, sugar, whole wheat, whole grains, beans, soy, corn, and such.
Controlling Blood Sugars Is The Single Most Important Aspect Of Your Nutrition In Terms Of Fat Loss & Health
— This is The What that is going to stop you from being ‘Crungy', cranky and hungry. When you eat carbs they get digested and turned into glucose (sugar in your body), in response your body raises blood sugar levels and releases insulin to bring those blood sugar levels down.
Unfortunately when there is sugar present in the body and blood stream you cannot burn fat. By limiting carbs you turn yourself into a fat burner (or using ketones (fat) as your fuel source).
— Carbs and too much protein can lead to increases in blood sugar levels. When those levels drop so can you– in terms of your energy and performance.
When blood sugar drops down that's usually when you get hungry again.
People eating the standard american diet are on a blood sugar roller coaster. Up and down throughout the day. Problem with that is you never tap into your fat stores to burn fat, and usually you are pushing more fat into the fat cells making them bigger and fatter– meaning you become bigger and fatter.
— Ketones are the preferred fuel source for your brain and your heart. Mental clarity goes way up when you are running on ketones. When your blood sugar and insulin are too high that really affects your brain and your energy– you basically have to eat carbs all day long to fuel yourself to keep going.
— Triglycerides go down, Good HDL goes up, LDL switches from the bad particles to the good, fasting glucose levels drop, visceral fat (belly fat) drops, thyroid function improves, blood pressure improves, and much more. Basically everything that determines your health on a blood test goes back to normal, above normal, or to an excellent condition.
–– When your body isn't busy trying to lower blood sugar levels back down and your brain isn't overstimulated with carbs it's a lot easier to fall asleep. Inflammation is down, hormones go back to normal functioning, all lead to a restful, regenerating night of sleep.
— I'm sure this is a reason that a lot of people will be entering this challenge. But this is just the byproduct of running on fat as your fuel source. Once you restrict carbs that sets off a cascade of awesomeness!
No more anti-nutrients, so your body can digest the nutrients you are eating, hormones go back to normal, and the body goes back to normal.
‘The ketogenic diet is not a weight loss diet– it's a fat-burning diet. If you have excess fat stores, the body will use them up. If you don't have excess fat stores, your body will use the fat you eat for fuel, and it will let you know when you need to eat more fat by making you hungry.'
-Dr. Eric Westman
How The 47-Day Ketogenic Challenge Will Change Your LIfe
Understand this is a challenge. And it is not an easy Challenge. This is the gateway to change your life.
You can find testimonials from our first couple challenge participants throughout this page and can see the finalists interview and before/after's here for challenge #1 and here for challenge #2. You can also see some of the fabulous recipes that the participants made at the bottom of this page.
Some will stick with one of the 4 plans in Keto Blueprint, and some will make some alterations. But I guarantee if you complete the challenge you will never go back to eating the way you did before, simply because you know how great you feel on this type of eating plan ……… and you remember how you used to feel before.
The tools are important, but more important is YOU!
By signing up and entering this challenge I need you to promise me one thing………
You will learn, you will do, and you will teach.
So you will learn what Low Carb High Fat is all about and the benefits, then you will do by implementing what you learned, and finally you will teach others what you learned. And the cycle repeats.
That is how you start a revolution. A Nutrition Revolution.
Because I cannot make somebody do this. I can only speak and write the truth, and hopefully that will inspire a person enough to take that first action and actually FEEL and EXPERIENCE the changes that will occur– then that person is changed FOREVER!
Hopefully that person is YOU!
Because what we have been doing has made 3/4 of the United States overweight and over fat, and 80%+ sick and unhealthy.
This way of eating is going to become the mainstream, and it's going to happen in the next 20 years. You can either become an early adapter and change your life and the life of those around you for the better or you can wait. Those who wait a lot them will get sicker, fatter, and ultimately die prematurely and unhappily.
But it doesn't have to be that way. Carbs are addicting; carbs are inflammatory; carbs are keeping you from the greatest version of YOU!

*The webinar is to educate you on exactly what Keto is (remember: learn, do, teach) . There is a lot of negative stuff online about Keto from uneducated sources. I used to be one and spoke negatively about it. So I want you to have a clear understanding and ask any questions you have.
If you go to your doctor and say ‘I am doing a ketogenic challenge', 60% of them will either have no idea what you're talking about and the rest they will say that is a very bad idea.
The average physician it takes them 17 years to implement new findings, studies, technology, nutrition, etc……. I'm not waiting 17 years and neither should YOU! It takes them 10 seconds to implement the newest drug to their patients BTW 🙂
This challenge is to get you to jump start you on your way to a healthier life, never going back to the Standard American Diet (S.A.D) again!
**Leptin is the master hormone. It is the controller of all energy metabolism. Energy is pretty important to life. A human with no energy at all we call a cadaver. Some of you starting the keto challenge will also need to start with the Leptin Reset Rx as laid out in the webinars.
You will feel better, look better, and perform better. Your workout performance will be better, your work performance will be better, and your overall life performance will be better.
By removing the ‘bad ‘foods', and some of you will be shocked at what ‘the bad' is, you remove the stuff that has been holding you back and you are able to feel, look and perform better then ever!
The ketogenic diet has been around for a while. I decided to give it a go in July 2014, literally just 4 days before my daughter was born on July 10th. Our newest edition was added April 3rd, 2019 and keto/LCHF plays a role everyday in my life still.
Why start a new nutrition challenge days before a very huge life changing event? Because I'm trying to be the best version I can be the strongest version I can be of myself.
But after doing Paleo since 2011 and feeling the best I've ever felt in my life, I asked myself is there a way to feel and perform better?
The answer is YES!
And the way is the ketogenic diet.
I had first heard of KETO or ketosis or the ketogenic diet back in my body building days back in the early 2000's. I read an article on it that said it was dangerous due to the possibility of ketoacidosis. But I've since learned ketoacidosis is something that is very rare unless you are type one diabetic. But that was the old me. Closed minded to anything.
Fast forward to the me now open minded to do anything. And very thankful for that. Since starting Keto in July 2014 I've done 4 versions of the diet, all to varying successes, and I have my favorite. But this challenge I will share all of them in the Keto Blueprint.
There is also a new addition for the webinars and the ebook as of April 2019. Leptin. If you are overweight or don't have any energy then you are most likely leptin resistant (LR). We need to fix that otherwise nothing will change. Keto/LCHF will play a big role in fixing LR.
The main things that has happened to me while being in nutritional ketosis and on the low carb high fat nutritional protocol are:
- No more hunger- I used to eat a minimum of 6 sometimes 10 times a day. Now it's usually just 3 and a lot of the times it's just 2. Sometimes it will just be 1 because sometimes I just forget to eat– something I could not do when I was a carb burner.
- Energy- I sleep better, I don't need as much, and my energy never crashes morning, afternoon or evening.
- Constant seeing of my abs– On Paleo my body fat would hover between 13-17. Now it ranges between 8-12%.
- Not having to plan my days around food– I would constantly have to think where am I going to be, what am I going to eat and when is my next meal.
- Save money- Having fat as my main calorie source is a lot cheaper then protein, plus you simply don't need as much protein because fat is protein-sparring.
- Mental Clarity- This for me has been the biggest and most important factor. When your brain gets the nutrient it craves (FAT) then it works better. 2/3 of our brain is made up of fat!
- Strength increased– In March 2015 I finally reached 300 pounds in the squat for the first time since my back injury in 2004. Then 2-weeks later I got 315 (below). And 4 years later up to 330. Who says strength declines with age?
And those are just the physical, outside rewards. A lot of stuff on the inside has changed, including cholesterol profiles improving (good HDL and LDL going up, bad LDL going down), blood sugar levels stabilizing, triglycerides going down, and more and more.
Now whenever I'm not doing a specific challenge I typically eat 90% keto/lchf and the rest of the times paleo. Treat meals are very rare for me anymore, because I simply have no cravings; fat will do that because it is nature's treat 🙂 Usually once per month is good for me.
Plus some of the recipes you'll gain access to actually taste like treats. Wait till you see my ‘ice cream' recipe. Myself and family routinely eat pizza, pancakes, cake, brownies. All Keto-ized- no sugar, no gluten, no soy, no grain! You'll get access to all those recipes as well!
It's been a real-life changer for me and I hope it will be for you to.
I plan on doing this for the rest of my life, with little tinkering here and there to fine tune what's best for me and my clients.

Frequently Asked Questions
’ What are the ‘prizes' for the Keto Challenge?
Everybody will be rewarded with the prize of better health, weight/fat loss, and inches gone! If you are entering for any other reason then this might not be the challenge for you.
If you enter this challenge because the reward prizes are something that intriguesÂ you then are you really doing this for the right reasons?
Do I need to enter the Challenge if I only want to watch the webinar?
No you do not. The webinar and challenge will be sent to everybody who registers, but you do not need to enter.
Also you can simply do the challenge on your own without participation in the actual challenge. Although the accountability you will get by going through the actual challenge with others will be a lot higher.
What will I be eating?
Fat 🙂 The ketogenic diet is a very simple way of eating, but highly complex in that every person who does it needs to be customized. Some will be able to eat more carbs, some less. Some more protein, some less. It all depends on what you have done up to now in terms of your nutrition and health.Â
Isn't Fat Bad For Your Health?
This is one of the biggest myths about nutrition. Fat is the preferred fuel source for your body, heart and brain. This is the main fuel source on the ketogenic diet.
Fat is not the deadly killer and causer of heart disease and stroke and everything else. The USDA got it wrong and are still to this day getting it wrong.
This will be the biggest misconception that we unveil in the webinar and the challenge!
I've done low carb before and it didn't work! I felt like crap the entire time.
Then you simply weren't in a state ketosis. You probably weren't eating enough fat. You probably were eating too much protein, so you were basically hungry all the time.
No diet that makes you hungry will ever work in the long run. Ketosis is all about controlling your hunger so you run on your own body's fat stores.
How long does it take to get into ketosis?
This will vary greatly from person to person. Some can get into it within a few days, others it might take a month or more. The webinar and the Keto Manual for the challenge will go into great depth on the how's of getting into ketosis.
Is ketosis safe?
This is a myth that stems again from uneducated people about what it actually is. With the plan being low carb, that doesn't mean it is without nutrition. In fact, you will actually be getting more nutrients then you are probably used to. So everything will start to work properly again.
Vitamins and Minerals will turn on enzymes that have been dormant; enzymes will control your hormones; your hormones will control YOU– this will include performance, energy, fat loss, sleep, feel good neurotransmitters, and more!!!
The real dangers are the carbohydrates, and especially consuming too many of them– even if they are considered ‘healthy' by many so called dietitians and experts. Running on glucose as your major source of fuel increases triglycerides, the bad cholesterol, causes inflammation, and opens you up to any myriad of chronic sicknesses and disease.
The major criticisms of a ketogenic diet are for the most part theoretical. We do not observe any of these commonly touted issues in our patients.
~Dr. David Perlmutter
Why 47-Days? Why not 30-day challenge like most challenges?
I'm not a normal person 🙂 I mean I'm living my life as an Improvement Warrior! So I work everyday at not being ‘normal or average' by any means.
Two reasons– 1. I don't like even numbers. 2. In 30-days some people might not be in a fully keto-adopted state. The time it takes for a person to get into it and feel the benefits of it could take as little as a week up to 6 weeks. But the manual and the accountability that we have set up will ensure you get there as soon as possible.
Remember 47-days is just the kick-off. Some people it may take months or years to get yourself back to complete health based on your history. Your health didn't decline in 47-days so expect small changes overtime.
How many calories should I consume?
That's the beauty of keto. You don't need to count. You eat when your hungry, not by the clock.
But you do need to eat. Remember calories are ENERGY to your body and mind. No energy coming in, regardless of the type of nutrition plan, your body and mind will not work properly.
This will be one of the big things besides eating more fat that people need to wrap their head around– you need to eat calories to get healthy and get your ideal body.
I don't want to lose weight. I just want to get healthy? Is this good for that?
YES! In fact it is what keto is for. This is a ‘getting healthy' diet, not a weight loss diet. Again weight and fat loss will occur, that's one part of being healthy.
The other parts include the things that really matter for a healthy body to not only function properly but to thrive! So fasting insulin and blood glucose will get under control, blood pressure drops, triglycerides go way down, bad cholesterol goes down, good cholesterol goes up, and on and on.
Will I have to give up _____ forever?
It depends on what your goals are and what _____ actually is. If your goal is to stay in ketosis then a lot of things will have to be eliminated. But during this challenge you will find a lot of new things that taste just as good or even better as _______.
I usually eat ketogenic 90-95% of the time, the other 5-10% is paleo. This is for the week. So this allows me to eat a little more carbs, like sweet potatoes, spaghetti squash and such. Eating these more ‘carby' foods is kind of a treat.
Eating this way never knocks me out of ketosis, because it's done in moderation, but it does knock my total level down a bit. But I'm training and eating to increase my strength and performance in my workouts.
If _____ is pizza or a donut then you have to weigh the consequences with what you are training for?
Sometimes I will knock it out of the park and have a treat meal or even an entire day. I plan them out in advance and the very next day I'm right back on my plan.
I have type 2 diabetes, will this plan work for me?
Again, I'm not a doctor, but I wouldn't trust a regular physician unless they were specifically practicing non-traditional medicine. With that said, in my opinion, if your doctor is ‘managing' your diabetes, so you come back every month or so, then I would find a new doctor. Type 2 diabetes isÂ reversibleÂ and curable.Â
The ketogenic diet plan is one way to help reverse it. With type 2 diabetes it's all about issues with maintaining and controlling blood sugar and insulin. 2 things that the ketogenic diet does perfectly.
In the manual we go over a host of diseases and issues that the ketogenic diet can help or even cure.
Are Workouts provided as well?
You will have the option to join our strength & conditioning fitness program in New Albany, OH ($47). Or our online workout program LBN Online Strength & Fitness Workouts ($10).
Both programs will be sent to you with more information once you register for the challenge.
I did this before and had amazing results! Is there a way for me to help spread the word?
Yes! We have a referral program (also known as an affiliate program) where you can help to spread the word for this challenge. We will actually pay you a referral commission for each person who joins our challenge.
