Meet Your Host

Brian BWelcome! I'm so happy you're here!

My name is Brian B from MrSkinnyPants.com & the KetoDietSummit.com

I'm a 46 year old, retired, 5x world champion dancer. I'm also lifelong low carb eater. After leaving the dance floor I found it harder and harder to maintain a weight I was happy with. Injuries prevented me from being as active as I was. What I was doing before wasn't working as I aged. So, I turned to the keto diet for help. Keto has helped me stay at a weigh pretty close to my "dancing days."

In this summit I'm excited to share the best, practical advice from industry leading experts. People who understand the struggle of middle aged people like you and I, who are trying to maintain a healthy weight using keto. I know you're gonna love what you learn here!

All my best, Brian B

Michelle Borthwick
Keto is Easy

I'm Michelle Borthwick ( sometimes known as Michelle Keto)  and my work lies (way) outside the standard one-size-fits-all Keto you find on "Google Coach".  

I tend to work with "women of a certain age".  Women who have some life behind them.  Women who believe that  giving up on how they look isn’t an option.  Women who know age is just a number.  Women who tend to live by their own set of rules.

My comprehensive program includes  diet hacks,  private coaching sessions, expert tips and accountability. It addresses: activity level, age, hormones, lab work, lifestyle, palate, food cravings, health, sociability, motivation, mindset and more.

I’m the proud founder and CEO of Keto is Easy Coach where my specialty is (way) outside the standard Keto world. Most commonly referred to as the Keto weight loss "stall buster," my propriety customization approach and nuanced application creates a permanent Keto lifestyle that is effective, easy and sustainable.

Before I began my own Keto journey, I owned a successful marketing and branding agency, where the demands of my business life led to my being overweight and dealing with multiple health challenges.  Every day left me depleted of energy, suffering with Gerd, plantar fasciitis, migraine headaches, severe brain fog and prediabetes. (in a glamour focused business that required tireless hours, endless creativity and spunk…of which I had none).

I honestly found Keto because I was desperate to save my life…and I haven't looked back.   Fast forward… I’ve lost 37 pounds, reversed prediabetes and all my health problems are gone!

I’m now living my passion as a full-time Keto coach to serve and inspire other women to get their life back, get healthy, find hope, and lose that last bit of stubborn weight.   I tend to work with "women of a certain age".  Women who have some life behind them. Women who believe that giving up on how they look isn’t an option.  Women who know age is just a number.  Women who tend to live by their own set of rules.

My business, Keto is Easy Coach, just celebrated two years in business, one of my top referral sources is doctors and health professionals and I’ve helped hundreds of women change their lives all from all over the United States.

In addition, it’s such an honor and privilege to serve as a consistent voice about Keto in the national and local media as a regular contributor to Modern Mom and various other publications where my work has been published as an expert keto coach. Keto On!

Brenda Bennett 
Sugar Free Mom

Brenda Bennett, popular food blogger Sugar Free Mom, knows what it’s like to struggle with sugar and carb addiction and what it’s like to be doing keto alone without her husband following the diet. She’s found freedom in the keto lifestyle and the ability to make recipes the whole family will eat. Since 2011, her blog has become the most popular sugar-free source on the web today. She has a devoted following of those looking to simply reduce sugar consumption, many who follow a low carb or keto diet and many who have multiple allergies. Her readers can identify with her as her own children have tree nut, peanut, and soy allergies and she herself has a gluten and dairy intolerance. Her cookbook, Naturally Keto includes a wide variety of over 125 recipes from breakfast to desserts, many dairy free and nut free, as well as a 4-week meal plan, a beginner’s guide to starting keto, tips on dealing with a reluctant spouse, kitchen essentials, and fool proof fabulous recipes for entertaining a non- low carb crowd.

Brenda developed her signature online 6 week Sugar Detox Course in 2012. Her Sugar Detox course has helped thousands of women break free from sugar and carb addiction. She became a certified keto coach in 2018 and a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner in 2020

She helps others develop the confidence and habits to create lasting change and greater health by sharing her wealth of knowledge and over 25 years of experience in psychology, addictions studies, fitness, nutrition, yoga, health and wellness. 

Coaching others to reach their personal version of ultimate wellness is her passion.

Cheryl came to low carb and keto in 2016 after a particularly difficult time in her life in which she was gaining weight, not sleeping well and overly stressed, despite lots of healthy behaviors. 

Once she began low carb, there was a huge shift in her health and outlook. Not only did she lose the weight she gained, but long term anxiety, depression, sleep and brain fog greatly improved.

At 48 she’s feeling better than ever and uses her experience and research into keto to educate and coach others to greater health and wellness.

She posts keto food ideas daily on her Instagram stories and recipes, research and wellness content at HealNourishGrow.com

Rosemarie Hilton
Rosa the Sweet Chef

Rosemarie Hilton has been a longtime lover of health and wellness. Even as a youth she found joy in watching her favorite cooking shows on PBS.

Her inspiration for culinary arts came from the countless hours of watching cooking shows such as Julia Childs, Yan Can Cook, and Jack Pupan, just to name a few. The art of cooking has always been fascinating to her, and she found pleasure in creating amazing dishes from simple ingredients.

In 2017, Rosemarie ventured to begin the ketogenic diet after years of struggling with chronic fatigue resulting from unhealthy eating habits.

After seeing how well Keto worked for her, she started making keto recipes for others. The popularity of her recipes propelled her to start a business as a personal chef which resulted in producing a keto bakery. Customers nationwide have raved about her low carb, sugar free desserts and bagels. And now at 54 years young she continues to serve the community while living a happy healthy keto lifestyle.

Stephanie
Stephanie Ketogenic

My low carb, high fat consulting credentials are completely self-taught.

I first began educating myself regarding Keto Adaptation when my Mother was diagnosed with a terminal Glioblastoma Multiforme brain tumor.The prognosis was 6 months to live. This prompted me to take an aggressive approach to learn ways to slow cancer growth. I dramatically lowered her carbohydrate intake and raised her dietary fats exponentially. Immediately my mother’s cancer growth stopped. She is now in her 7th year of being cancer free.

After my Mother’s cancer remission from a low carb and high fat diet prescription, I began to apply the Nutritional Ketosis principles on myself. With success I was able to enter and maintain Ketosis and enjoyed incredible health improvements.

After experiencing the incredible benefits of Ketosis myself, I applied these low carb and high fat principles on my closest friends. The success stories of better health continued in people around me. My next approach was my personal training clients. In a 2 year time period I was able to Keto coach 8 subjects with 100% improvement in their weight loss and health goals.

Today I have Keto coached thousands of clients with amazing results. Initially I set up a live consultation with each individual. Together we determine what their goals are in trying to Keto Adapt, and discuss all prior health issues, diets and attempts to Keto Adapt on their own. The MOST important concept I teach to clients is what a pivotal role stress plays in one’s ability to Keto Adapt.

I have been able to collect and study Keto Adaptation failures and successes in my ongoing Keto Coaching and Research practices. I continue to spread the word to people of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, gender and moral principles on the benefits of Ketosis. I am constantly in contact with my clients before, during and after consultations. I am honored and excited to help support this emerging movement of people wanting to improve their health.


Jessica Fox
Keto Queen's Kitchen

Hi I'm Jessica, I'm a Health & Wellness Educator and a Keto Coach.  It’s been four years since I lost 168+ pounds!

I worked through my childhood of past sexual trauma, went to therapy, journaled the hell out of subconscious, and corrected serious negative core beliefs. I HEALED my emotional wounds.

I found myself again after a devastating divorce & a very difficult marriage.

I have continued to maintain my 168 pound Weight Loss without any regain. Growth is painful, it is difficult, and there will be moments you think you can’t handle anymore. You can. Lean into it and breathe. The only one keeping you from living the life you want: is you.


Brenda Watt
WattWorks Nutrition

Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant™ | Natural Nutrition – Clinical Practitioner | Functional Nutrition Coach | Certified Keto Health Coach | Certified Carnivore Coach |Certified Culinary Nutrition Expert | Watt Works Nutrition C.E.O. | Wife to a Supportive and Amazing Husband | Mother to Four Outstanding Adult Sons | Lifestyle and Nutrition Cheerleader | Lifelong Learner

My initial interest in eating “the ketogenic way” was peaked a year later when Dr Dale Bredesen wrote about the success of applying a low-carb high-fat eating style with intermittent fasting as a way to reverse or at least slow the onslaught of Alzheimer’s disease. My mom had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and I was willing to try anything to slow the progression of her precious memories.

The more I dug the more I realized this made sense — reduce carbs and eat only when hungry.  No matter where you are right now, together we can create a well-formulated protocol that fits your needs and lifestyle.


Lauren Berryhill
Keto Coach Lauren

Lauren Berryhill is a Certified Nutrition Specialist and Certified Personal Trainer who has lost over 100 pounds during the course of her weight loss and fitness journey using a ketogenic diet approach. She has led a keto lifestyle for nearly five years.

She struggled for years with binge eating disorder, body dysmorphic disorder and became over weight due to her addiction to food.

In early 2017, Lauren heavily researched the Ketogenic diet as she was desperate for a complete lifestyle change. Since going keto, she has cured her pre-diabetes, has overcome her food addiction and has recovered from her eating disorder.

In 2020, Lauren became pregnant with twins and continued to follow a whole foods based ketogenic diet with a few minor changes as well as her workout routine. Her prior pregnancy in 2015 was full of complications like preeclampsia, high blood sugar and other issues. After healing her body with a ketogenic diet prior to her second pregnancy, she carried her twins to full term at 37 weeks with no complications and delivered a healthy baby boy and girl. In addition to a healthy keto pregnancy, her postpartum recovery has been much quicker and easier while also staying keto. She was cleared to workout at two weeks postpartum and has been able to lose the 57 pounds she gained and additional weight all within the first three months postpartum. Lauren feels that her experience with a keto pregnancy and the postpartum period gives her the extra knowledge to help others know how to navigate their own journey.

Lauren offers one on one nutrition and fitness coaching as well as custom macro profiles, meal plans and fitness plans.


Abby Keuhn
Keto Keuhn Nutrition

I got my first degree in 2008, which was in psychology from UW-Eau Claire. Then in 2015, I completed my Human Biology degree with an emphasis in Nutrition from UW-Green Bay.

In August of 2017, I became a Nutrition and Dietetic Technician, Registered. This title allows me to work with people in showing them the relationship between food and health.

While on my own journey to better health, I learned that I felt best with the fewest carbs possible and having more fat in my diet. That's where my journey to keto began. My fibromyalgia has improved, which has been one of the biggest benefits. A few other benefits I have experienced is that I’m not constantly thinking about when I can eat next and that I have more energy as well.

Judith Kohlheim 
Keto for the Soul

In August 2019, I started my Ketogenic lifestyle. I began my journey very unsure, but quickly learned how great this lifestyle really was. I then created a self-accountability Instagram page using the name Keto4thesoul_. This was a page that I purposely did not share with close friends or family due to dealing with self-shame. In fear of accountability.

Once the weight started coming off and my mind set started shifting, I started feeling more comfortable. Soon everyone started asking “What are you doing, and how do I start!” I then started K4TS Facebook support group. This group not only helped others but once again it helped hold me accountable. I began posting daily and truly found a passion for helping others become healthy, mentally and physically.

Fast forward to December 2020. I got invited to a new social media platform, Clubhouse. I immediately went searching for any clubs pertaining to keto and there were NONE!! I was shocked. I decided to put myself out there and applied for my own club. Keto 4 The Soul was approved January 2021. I soon learned that this was in fact the very first keto support club! I quickly started meeting like-minded people and the rest is history!

Coach Bronson Dant
