Ben Azadi is the founder of Keto Kamp and author of the book Keto Flex and an expert on all things keto. Today, we’ll deep dive into details of how to successfully implement the keto diet and the anti-inflammatory benefits of keto, which create a more healthy you!


Growing up on fast food, video games, and an unhealthy lifestyle, Ben found himself an obese adult weighing 250 pounds. In addition to being physically obese, he talks about himself as being “mentally obese” he was at rock bottom, searching for ways to end his life. “I knew I had to get my act back together.
