Elle Russ chats with KETOGAINS co-founders Luis Villesenor and Tyler Cartwright.
Luis has always been passionate about fitness due to a personal interest in improving his own physique. Always curious in learning the “whys and how’s” of how it all works, he has been studying and researching nutrition and strength training since he was 17.Upon discovering ketogenic diets in 2001, Luis has been on a low carb regime ever since, which he has used to favorably recomposition his body and improve his health.
Luis decided to develop KETOGAINS to share his experiences and knowledge and help people attain their health and fitness goals. Luis is regarded as one of the most experienced and knowledgeable persons on Low-Carb / Ketogenic dieting, and is the “go to guy” when applying a Low-Carb diet for Bodybuilding and Strength Training by well-known and respected insiders, leaders, influencers of the low carb/paleo and general fitness community.
Tyler Cartwright has a fascination with learning, reading, and self-improvement. A decade ago, with his weight at a hulking 505 lbs, his doctor told him, "All-in-all you're as healthy as a horse, but you're also as big as one. I'm not going to test your blood for what I know we will find, because I think you can fix this with diet and exercise." After pressing the issue, he tested his blood at a private lab and found his HbA1c to be over 13 (Type 2 Diabetes). Upon hearing that, he embarked on a journey to leverage that knowledge along with some passing experience and knowledge of a ketogenic diet to improve what was sure to be a food-shortened life. Along the way, in addition to resolving Type 2 diabetes, he shed 295 lbs without the aid of surgery or medication. His wife has lost over 125 lbs.
