Stephanie educated herself about the ketogenic diet after her Mother was diagnosed with a terminal glioblastoma brain tumour, which gave her 6 months to live prompting Stephanie to take an aggressive approach to slow cancer growth. After dramatically lowering her Mother’s carbohydrate intake and raising her dietary fats the cancer growth stopped, and now she is in her 7th year of being cancer free!

After her Mother’s cancer remission from a low carb high fat diet Stephanie applied the same nutritional ketosis principles on herself with incredible health improvements. After her own ketogenic transformation she then I advised a low carb high fat diet to close friends. The success stories continued so she started advising her personal training clients to go on a low carb high fat diet with even more success.

  1. Thanks, interesting video. My only criticism is the camera back and forth between the two of you. Imo (for what it's worth), I think it would be better to keep it on the interviewee unless you (the interviewer) are actually speaking. I was getting dizzy man, lol

  2. Sorry, but a lot of hot air mixed with A~D-D! I learned you never know how much energy people have until U live with them lol. Shooting from the hip. You want to get it right? Check out "John Kiefer" he's as clear as they can get and backs it up!

  3. Hi stephanie, I'm new to keto diet and still haven't got my head exactly around it lol I'm interested in starting but where I live (Northern Ireland) the animals are not grass fed all year round… And it's hard to get particular veg in organic. To follow this plan, does it have to be organic and grass fed meat before it works.. Thanks for your vids. Your good inspiration xx

  4. She seems like such a nice person. I love her energy.
    I would like to see her and Freelee get together and talk nutrition.
    They have totally different ideas of what diet is about, yet they both seem totally fit and healthy.
    **You want to get VIEWS on YouTube!? Have the two of them hook up and have a "sit down"!**
    It would be like the Incredible Hulk meeting Superman,….Lol!

  5. Follow nature. . . Fruits and vegetables have all the proteins, fats, and carbohydrates your body needs. Man (people) will invent and reinvent stuff to sell and confuse you. Wake up.

  6. Stephanie, I enjoyed your conversation with Sam about the ketogenic diet (KD). At 12:50 in the video you state that a KD is contraindicated in type 1 diabetes (T1D). Let me clarify that point. There were 1.4 million people in the US as of 2010 with T1D who could benefit from the KD. In fact, a KD is the best way to treat T1D along with lower doses of insulin compared to the currently recommended high carb diet. I’m a physician with T1D on a KD since Feb. 2012 and have patients who also have found success with it as well. The KD allows blood sugars to normalize (average blood glucose of 83 mg/dL or 4.6 mmol/L and HbA1c around 5%), with great reduction in hypoglycemic episodes and symptoms, all with less insulin. The misconception about treating T1D with a KD comes from the confusion between nutritional ketosis (NK) and diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). People with T1D need to know that NK is completely different than DKA. NK does not lead to or increase the risk of DKA. DKA is most commonly caused by infection in persons with insulin deficiency or in T1D who stop taking their insulin. Although I do not know Stephanie yet, we are both featured in Jimmy Moore’s new book, “Keto Clarity” on sale Aug. 5, 2014 on Thanks to Stephanie Persons and Sam Feltham for spreading the word about the KD.

  7. She's the best! One thing though. A ketogenic diet is perfect for both type I and type II diabetics. Richard Bernstein, the author of Diabetes Solution is a type I diabetic himself. There is less chance for error when injecting insulin on a keto diet as opposed to  a higher carb diet. That means less hypos and hypers.

    An untreated type I will get ketoacidosis no matter what they eat.  They can eat all the carbs in the world but without insulin, they will be a ketone factory.

  8. damn it… it looks like i will not be able to addopt to keto atleast for two years… i work only night shifts, i do martial arts before my night shift, i feel sore for days after my training so i guess im creating all kinds of cortisol in my body, will have to come back to keto after i will change my job… thanks for explaining everything! your doing great job guys.

  9. First time I learn about Ketogenic diet. Been a vegetarian for 11 years, trying to go vegan for the last 2 years. I've been eating much more vegetable fat than usual during the last 2 weeks… (just because my body felt likt it) AND had no more sugar/ bread/ crackers cravings!!! I take it as a sign this diet could work for me. 

  10. I'm 52 years old "OVERWEIGHT" just starting this woe and Stephanie gets me hyped everytime I run across her, I've started following her on FB and YouTube.  I'm hooked on learning this way of life.  Confusing I must admit! Stephanie ROCKS!

  11. I have been a subscriber to Stephanie Person's YouTube channel, Stephanie fitskater, for a few months now, and I have to say she is such an inspiration. The fact that she can look so ripped, at an age when most women are blaming hormonal issues for their prodigious fat gain, really is so motivating. It really shows you the efficacy of this type of nutritional lifestyle. I have read the works and watched the lectures of Dr. Jeff Volek and Dr. Stephen Phinney – both of whom are the foremost experts on ketogenic diets – but nothing beats seeing the results of this diet in the stellar physique of someone like Stephanie. It is almost as if she has found the elusive fountain of youth. With a body that any woman would envy, and with having such a convivial and down to earth personality, Stephanie is a great spokesperson for this diet. Thank you Sam for giving her, and her channel, more exposure.
