One of my goals for 2019 is to
meet as many of you guys in person as possible. So I have decided
to do meet-ups when I go to the NTA Annual Conference in Portland
and the KetoCon in June, and when I’m in L.A. for Expo West. So if
you want to meet me as much as I want to meet you, have it be on
your radar and watch out for the official announcement of when and
where the meet-ups will be in the upcoming episode! You can also
find all of the information for everything I’m going to try to do
this year at www.shawnmynar.com/events.
Also, I have my new
Favorites page on my website where I share all the things
that I love. I think a really important part of my job is helping
you find good quality products that don’t have crap in them, and I
take a lot of pride in my ability to do that. So go check it
As always, if you have any
questions, be on the lookout for the next Keto Hot Seat call for

your body is telling you, you can’t do what’s right for you when

“Trust the process. Stop
comparing. Remember the ultimate goal in life is just to live it
and enjoy it every single moment and let it all just go… If you’re
feeling really, really good or you’re noticing great improvements
with your health, then keep doing that.”
