  1. fantastic! I ordered the book because I want to go keto but must heal this thyroid issue that has plagued me for 25 years! I'm also excited about fermented beef sticks! lol

  2. What are your thoughts regarding dietary ketosis from supplements like Pruvit KETO//OS? Im curious if it has a health benefit or if you're basically just peeing the stuff out giving you a reading of being in ketosis.
