Keto parents have kids. That we know. What we don't know is how that plays out in the family. Do you encourage your children to eat ketogenic? High fat? Less fruit? Doesn't that sound crazy? Guests Mark Miller and Karen Mangiacotti run a 7-kid household in which most of them have drastically cut sugar and carbs, and have even increased their fat intake. So what happened? You'll have to listen to find out. Be warned. Karen and Mark are naturally hysterical. Get some facial tissues.

Karen Mangiacotti and Mark Miller
Karen Mangiacotti and Mark Miller met in 2004 on another one of Carl Franklin's podcasts, Mondays. They have been Keto since Mark was diagnosed with cancer in January 2016 and they wanted to make sure they were no longer feeding the cancer carbs to grow big and strong. Cancer is gone now, but left behind the gift of a Ketogenic lifestyle they have both embraced. They have 7 children in varying stages of Keto and an insanely busy household where they still manage to make Keto meals every day.

Carbohydrate intolerance develops as part of the aging process
