In this week’s episode of What The Fat, I interview Robert Sikes, founder of Keto Savage. Robert is a natural, pro ketogenic bodybuilder, creator of The Keto Brick, and author of Keto-Adapted Performance Manual. Join us as we discuss all things keto and muscle building. We dive deep into topics such as disordered eating in the bodybuilding space and how a ketogenic diet can help improve body composition and performance.


Enjoy the show!



Robert Sikes is a bodybuilder, entrepreneur, and coach who uses the keto way of eating to improve body composition and performance. In this episode, Robert breaks through the myth that we need carbohydrates to build muscle. We discuss training, mindset, and how to optimize your results on keto.
