Welcome all seeking refuge from low carb dogma!

Keto Clarity Academy ~ Medical Disclaimer


Blogstress Note:  I'm trying to finish up a project outside the Asylum, have had lots of computer issues that have made this frustrating to say the least, coupled with family obligations and "real job" starting back up.  An unfinished, older, now past-its-shelf-date post went live the other day that I have since unpublished.  I may or may not re-publish it merged with another at some point.

I've been meaning to weigh in on the whole Keto Clarity Academy launched by Jimmy Moore and Melanie Miller (of Evangelizing Low Carb fame), and a more in depth look will have to wait until higher priorities are fulfilled.  



Here is the current front page of Keto Clarity Academy.  Finally, the stock photos have been replaced, though at this time we still don't have bios and official roles of the four ladies joining Jimmy and Melanie in this endeavor.


For $75 (down from $100) you can take KETO 101 based on Jimmy's book.  The blurb on the bottom reads:

KETO Clarity Academy
Based on the best selling book by Author & pod-caster Jimmy Moore. The KETO Clarity Academy is a fantastic starting point for the ketogenic lifestyle. KCA specializes in helping clients achieve their personal goals, improve health gains and receive knowledge of the science of the ketogenic lifestyle.



The About page:


KETO Clarity Academy is a professional keto lifestyle school specializing in helping clients achieve their personal goals and improving their health gains, knowledge of the science of a ketogenic lifestyle and success. The scope of our business offerings covers areas such as KETO Lifestyle Coaching, personal improvement coaching, motivation, weight loss, online coaching, personal accountability offerings and health coaching.
We are in business to help the everyday average person that is struggling with health issues, weight gain and needs a clearer understanding of why their body is not responding to diets.
Our goal is to teach simple, practical ways to implement a whole-foods, nutritional ketogenic diet for optimizing weight-loss and health.

I didn't recall Keto Clarity reading much like an instruction manual, though it does have some of that.  It's a hodge podge of quotes (Moments of Clarity) mostly second-rate "experts" from the IHC intertwined with Jimmy's past (and fleeting) success with keto.  Interspersed with blurbs (Doctor's Notes) from Dr. Eric Westman.  By the time Jimmy was touring to promote this book he'd put most or all of the weight back on causing him to embark on his fasting fiasco!   But I thought it might be interesting to copy the medical disclaimer here.  I sure hope the KCA class based on the Keto Clarity book carries the same disclaimer!  It's one of the most thorough ones I ever recall seeing!  The large-font paragraph should be expanded to include the staff of KCA.  Even when Mrs. Moore becomes a quack NTP.
