Are you someone who is dealing with autoimmune issues? How does keto help to heal, manage or even reverse it? Find out as Cristina Curp shares her own story of being healed from autoimmune diseases and her knowledge about keto as it relates to autoimmune health.

  • Finding food freedom in the keto lifestyle

  • You can change the shape of your body and it doesn’t matter what number comes up on the scale. Building muscle is important. Focus on getting strong.
  • When you eat the right foods that are giving you energy and giving you fuel and you go into the gym feeling your best, you’re going to feel how capable you are. It gives you a sense of accomplishment.

Action Steps:

  • Troubleshoot your diet.
  • Take your focus away from losing weight.
  • Embrace what your body can do and what it’s there for.

Cristina said:

“All programs have their merit but I always encourage people to tweak as needed because it doesn’t matter how well a program is written; unless you’re working one on one with someone, it’s not going to be specific for you.”

“Having those muscles in place, it’s really the fountain of youth. It’s so important so you don’t get injuries and stay agile, and be able to move if you get older.”

Hey there, I'm Shawn!

I’m obsessed with nitro cold brew, 90% dark chocolate, and helping coaches and practitioners build a business they love. With nothing but a passion for helping others and the desire to never have a boss again, I quit the corporate world and built my own million dollar coaching business over the past decade. Now, I help others do the same.
