Moving away from a vegetarian diet transformed Randy Webb’s health

Keto Chat Episode 14 is with Randy Webb, Licensed Professional Counselor in Arizona and Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington. Randy was my counseling internship supervisor when I was completing my graduate degree in 2012, and at that time, he was a vegetarian. When I went to visit Phoenix in March 2016, I was excited to talk to Randy about a couple of  the therapies he’s passionate about. But then I discovered that he had a big surprise for me regarding his diet!

What we talk about:

  • Randy’s surprise development of metabolic syndrome, fatigue, sleep trouble, and kidney issues when he was eating, what he thought was, a health diet.
  • His journey from a low-fat, high carb, vegetarian diet to a lower carb, omnivorous diet
  • Who inspired Randy to look at his diet and give up oatmeal and consider eating sardines for breakfast
  • What health improvements he’s seen since changing his diet
  • Which dietary change had the biggest impact on his health markers
  • How Randy became interested in hypnotherapy
  • How trauma can lead to mindless eating, emotional eating, or stress eating and what can be done about it
  • How EMDR therapy empowers a person to build their own internal resources for health and well-being as opposed to other talk therapy that focuses on identifying and changing what is “wrong” with a person
