Meet Your Ketogenic Buddies

Charles and Tiffany are your ketogenic buddies — we’re a married couple whose lives have changed after trying the diet for the first time in 2019. We’re also Registered Nurses since 2012.

Our journey all began when Charles got hired by a keto company. The pictures of their recipes were the ones that caught our attention. “How can a diet be this good?” we asked. That’s when we learned about how the diet worked and gave it a shot. Hands down, best decision ever made.

Charles Michael Yamut, RN

Charles earned his BS nursing degree in 2012. He’s a long-time fitness enthusiast who loves sports, running, and weight training. His reason for embarking on a keto diet journey is to maintain lean muscle mass while gaining more energy. Previously, he was on a standard high-carb diet which increased his cravings for unhealthy refined food. Not only did that make him feel tired and bloated, but it also led to digestive issues. In his spare time, Charles loves playing video games and watching comedy movies.

Tiffany Joy Yamut, RN

Tiffany earned her BS nursing degree in 2012 and got certified as a nutritionist in 2017. She used to be diagnosed with PCOS, overweight at 60 kg, have hormonal acne, high levels of bad cholesterol, and struggled with low energy throughout the day. By reducing carbs, all her symptoms disappeared. Keto also made her realize how fun and rewarding a clean, healthy lifestyle can be. Currently, she’s doing carnivore, a stricter version of keto, to achieve total healing. She’s been featured in Verywell Health, Smart Fitness Expert, and other top health and wellness websites.
