Before he came across the keto diet, Shawn suffered from Epstein-Barr Virus, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Hashimoto’s disease, fibromyalgia, depression, insomnia, obesity and a pituitary tumor. He considers his health history a gift because fixing his own issues led to him developing an expertise that allows him to help others every day. Shawn is a fellow in the International Society of Sports Nutrition, and a nutritional biochemist. He has over 20 years experience on keto and is known as the world’s greatest formulator (he’s now formulated over 500 products).

Hi, I’m Rob!

Hi, I’m Rob! It has been said “You are not what you have learned, but what you’ve overcome.”

I have overcome my share of obstacles in order to architect the life of my dreams and uncover the key to lasting, meaningful success. Growing up in Queens (literally on the wrong side of the tracks), my early years were tumultuous, marked by hardship and violence.
