The Keto Kamp Podcast With Ben Azadi

Jan 18, 2021

Today, I am blessed to have here with me a lifetime natural competitive bodybuilder, Robert Orion Sikes.

Robert started Keto Savage to help motivate and educate others about the importance of following your passions and getting the results you want. Robert wakes up early, he works his A@$ off, and he sees results.

Robert is no different than you; any success he has experienced this far is attainable for anybody willing to put in the work. We live in an era where everything is automatic, everything is superficial, and everything is expected for nothing. That life does not create greatness; it destroys it. The Keto Savage site will empower those who crave intensity, dedication, discipline, hard work, and sacrifice.

In this episode, Robert Orion Sikes reveals the inspiration behind his brand, Keto Savage. As one of the first keto bodybuilders, Robert knew he needed to document his journey. Robert has been in ketosis for six years; he explains how he stays so disciplined. When you love what you do, it’s easy to say disciplined. So, learn how to love keto foods and to do amazing things for your body. Tune in as we speak about Robert’s Keto Brick, how to break a plateau, and we talk about big tech censorship.

[00:30] About Robert Orion Sikes

  • As a bodybuilder, Robert was shredded, but he sacrificed his health.
  • He developed eating disorders that left him in a dark place.
  • Plus, Robert fell into a deep debt; he got depressed and suicidal.
  • So, Robert tried keto. His cravings went away, and he felt much better.
  • Everyone at the gym would tell Robert that he couldn’t get big on carbs. However, Robert went fully keto, and he still competed as a bodybuilder. Robert has looked back since. 

[05:45] How Robert Will Stay Disciplined

  • The secret to Robert’s discipline is loving the process.
  • You can’t become a bodybuilder overnight; it takes years and years of weightlifting.
  • The more you work at something, the better you get.
  • Bodybuilding involves an obsessive amount of discipline. As long as you embrace it, then you will find success.

[07:45] What To Know When Starting Keto

  • Know your “why” and understand what drives you.
  • Also, knowing your “why” will help if you have a long-term view of what you want to accomplish. That way, you’ll be excited about what you do every single day.
  • Getting healthy isn’t a good enough “why.” Instead, your “why” should be about the people in your life. You owe it to your family to stay healthy.

[11:50] About The Keto Brick

  • The Keto Brick sold out in two minutes.
  • The bricks are great for backpacking, hunting, and running. The brick is 1,000 calories with 90 grams of fat.
  • Every ingredient has the purpose of optimizing your performance.
  • The momentum and support for Robert’s Keto Bricks keep coming.
  • Keto products should not have seed oils or any sweeteners.
  • If there are more protein and carbs than fat, then that isn’t keto.
  • Get Keto Bricks:

[19:15] Building Muscle On Keto   

  • If you are implementing progressive overload and increasing your training, you will build muscle in the context of being in a caloric surplus.
  • Fuel your growth through adequate calories.
  • Within eight days, Robert will hit each muscle group twice.
  • Robert doesn’t do a ton of cardio. He likes to run as a meditative type of exercise.
  • If you’re doing cardio, do it after your strength training. Use it as a cool down rather than a warmup.

[24:00] How To Break A Plateau

  • Many women chronically undereat. Their metabolic baseline has been so down-regulated that there’s not much room for them to improve.
  • So, women need to upregulate their metabolism.
  • Trying a calorie surplus will help upregulate your metabolism.
  • When you have a calorie surplus, that doesn’t mean you can eat whatever you want.
  • Having a cheat meal will have negative psychological effects. Instead, focus on desiring things that will improve your wellbeing.
  • Keto flexing will help your good cells get stronger.

[33:20] About Big Tech Censorship

  • Robert is doubling-down on his own website.
  • He is revamping the entire website so big tech will not censor his macro content.
  • That way, he won’t have to rely on social platforms to be his end-all be-all.
