He shares his thoughts about the ketogenic diet and exactly how to go about figuring out the best diet for your specific body. We discuss genetic testing, how to interpret your tests, and what to do about common mutations like MTHFR. We also talk about heavy metal testing, stool tests, and what to do with the information you get.

Ready to enhance your fitness levels and finally look and feel your best?! There are a lot of fitness guides on the market, but most of them are not programmed well, require extensive amounts of cardio, and don’t actually produce long-lasting results. If you want a fitness program that lays EVERYTHING out for you and will help you finally achieve your goals, check out the MAPS programs from Mind Pump Media at www.mindpumpmedia.com/christinaricewellness. I recommend MAPS Anabolic to anyone who goes to the gym and wants something that will increase their strength and fitness levels while also reducing body fat, and I recommend MAPS Anywhere if you’re looking for a program that doesn’t require a gym and focuses more on bodyweight exercises.
