Keto Response – Ryan Lowery Keto Claims

So I was told by many of you about Ryan Lowery and his response video about the Joe Rogan Podcast. In it, he attempts to discredit much of the science behind much of what was said and refers mainly to it as “claims” So of course, i did what anyone else would do and fight “science” with science. Let’s discuss what he claimed, what studies he cited, and my response to his points.
