    Thank-you for sharing these parts of your journey Mani. I also have only just been introduced to the terms “metabolic health, ketogenic diet, and eating until satiety of high fat foods.” I have only been on this path for a year and have completed my first 3 day fast a couple weeks ago thanks to all of your research and help! I can’t wait to read more about your journey and continue to get better and apply these findings to my own journey. I went from not being able to wait 3 hours in between meals for food to easily waiting 18 hours to break my overnight fast. MIND = BLOWN!

    • You drove alone through Mexico, Central America, Colombia, Peru to Uruguay — a fantastic journey, despite all the F-E-A-R being promoted about it. But F-E-A-R can mean face-everything-and-rise! During that transition through different cultures and experiences you shifted your diet and believed in the transformative power of your body. It’s taken me nearly a decade, and as you’ll see in Part 2 there were some rough patches. Hopefully sharing and “thinking together” will make us all richer. Congratulations on your journey!
