Dr. Ryan Lowery

Over a year ago I sent a DM to @ryanplowery with little to no expectation to get a response.

Less than 24 hours later I received a video message response full of love and positivity.

Fast forward a year and now we’re homies traveling the world speaking together and collaborating to share the keto conversation.

Ryan, just as all of my friends, feel as if we’re family that didn’t know it.

I consider Ryan a brother of mine and am honored to be in each other’s life and excited for all the change we bring to the world along with all the adventure and fun we have along the way.

Also, stay tuned for more content regarding our SPECT imaging with @doc_amen and @justpruvit exogenous ketones, among with content from @theaspi and all the fitness testing were gonna run me through.

Lance Armstrong

True or true?

Still have an email saved from 2010 post brian surgery that I wrote to @lancearmstrong and will share what that email container in person one day. I just know it!

Until then, I’ll just continue to share my gratitude and perspective I’ve gained from Lance over the years.

When I was originally diagnosed with the first brain tumor in 2010, I was on top of the world living out my dream as a pro BMX athlete beyond what I ever fathomed being possible.

When the diagnosis hit, I was a fresh 21 year old sitting in the doctors office ALONE waiting to get a report from a concussion I had received a few days prior. Never did I imagine I would be diagnosed with a massive brain tumor on accident.

I’m thankful it all happened and has worked out the way it has and Lance is one of many I have to thank for the mindset that was instilled in me on top of what my family, BMX, and my own journey instilled in me at a young age.

After a 6-hr surgery, 75 staples, and 16 stitches later, I was back riding in 5 weeks!

The fact that I’m still alive and able to love my life better than before is why I work so hard and share all I share.

It’s called GRATITUDE and PERSPECTIVE.

Brain Health Is Wealth

Wealth starts in the brain.

Wealth consists of what we feed our brains: food, beverage, sleep, content consumption (social media, news, entertainment, etc.), desires, thoughts, beliefs, self-talk, exercise, mindfulness, perspectives, and so on.

Literally, every choice we make affects our brain.

If we want success, health, wealth, love and abundance within all of these areas, we have to begin by loving ourselves and that means loving our brains!

What do you do daily to love your brain?

Sad But True

This is pretty ridiculous but sadly spot on to the direction our society is heading.

What’s even sadder is the fact that many people don’t even have control over it because their brain is being hijacked by the biological affects of the foodlikeproducts our nation consumes on a regular basis, making up for over 75% of diets and is full of sugar.

I was once there but luckily for me, and my genetic predisposition, I stayed “in-shape” and was “healthy”. At least I thought I was healthy.

The inflamed state of my body from such a processed diet, along with mutated genes and specific negative genes activated, led me to being diagnosed with a non cancerous meningioma brain tumor.

Since then, I have made some serious changes to my lifestyle and diet and I share this with all of you to inspire each and every one of you to make just one small change to your lifestyle and diet that could have such a profound impact you’ll never fathom until experienced.

You don’t need to be perfect or do it all at once. Just adopt one small change here and there, and stick to it, and share what you experience with others.

@nutritionschool refers to this as the ripple affect and I have seen it take place on a regular basis in my life.

Love your body and treat it right. You won’t be disappointed.

Persistence is How I Made It Here

Persistence to land a trick has taught me many invaluable lessons in life.

To accept this kind of pain just to land a trick on your bike changes you mentally and subconsciously in such profound ways.

I wasn’t aware of it in the beginning but in my last few years competing and progressing, I started to become conscious to what was going on.

Now I harness it all for my purpose to serve and support those around me and willing to hear what I have to say.

CONTEXT: Sushi

I get asked “how do you stay 100% keto all the time?”. Well, I don’t.

Now, if I had a sever condition such as cancer, seizures, etc., then the conversation would be different.

That said, 99% of the time I’m keto and on point. The other 1%, looks like this.

Still high in fat, cold rice (resistance starch, which is about 1-2 to 1/3 the carbs as when cooked) and @justpruvit ketones in my cup to mitigate the blood sugar spike and keep my brain fueled at the same time.

This is what I’d call my “cheat” meal, even tho I don’t believe in that phrase but for lack of better words, you get what I’m saying.

Still, no crazy sugars, processed foods, etc. Still real, whole food consumption. I also do an extended fast leading up to this meal and the next day as well as a fasted workout with some @justpruvit exogenous ketones to get back on track.

See photo 2 where I had a whole roll worth of rice we cut off 😂 trying to indulge but keto at heart problems.

This works for ME.

I should note that this DOES NOT work for everyone, especially if your metabolism is damaged or if you’ve not met your goals.

DM me if you have any questions.

Falling Down

We all fall down in life. Figuratively and literally.

BMX has taught me to always get up and try again.

This becomes subconscious when the DESIRE to succeed is so strong that you don’t see “failure” as an opportunity to quit, rather it becomes an opportunity to learn and grow.

Hitting the ground like this hurts but the feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction for accomplishing the goal you set out for is a like no other.

The cool part about non physical times we “fall down” is that they don’t physically harm us.

I’ve proven to myself every day I’m strong enough to pick myself up and keep at it for the life I envision, no matter how much it hurts.

Are you proving yourself?

Gratitude = Abundance

At a loss for words for receiving so much love and gratitude from everyone here at @justpruvit KetoKademy in Orlando, Florida!

You guys are amazing and I’m beyond grateful for the response after sharing my life with all of you.

I can’t stress enough the importance of perspective and how gratitude leads to abundance in our lives.

Love you all!

We NEED Adversity

3 years ago I got dropped from my bike sponsor halfway through ACL recovery with no notice.

That was my main source of income that I risked my life to obtain and represent the brand. It was $600/month but it paid my rent, utilities, and phone bill.

Thankfully, my mom taught me how to save and budget from an early age so I was fine. Fueled by spite, anger and rejection, I worked my butt off and placed top 3 in my first contest back.

That is one of many adversities I’ve used for my advantage.

It fueled my drive for success and challenged me to think of ways to replace that $600/month.

It put me on a new path where that’s not even 1/10 of my income per month today. I find the reason I live with so much abundance and success today is that I’m 100% on PURPOSE to serve and support.

I realize all the “problems” and “bad things happening to me” back then was a result of my choices in life and not having accountability for my reality.

Also, because I was solely on self and not grateful for the “little” I had, which could be seen as “much” to others.

Point of this story is to share how necessary adversity is for us to grow and progress past our current reality. Not just financially, but spiritually, personally, creatively, etc.

What adversity have you experienced and used for your?
