Robert Sikes

Robert is a lifetime natural, competitive bodybuilder. He started training as a junior in high school weighing a whopping 115 pounds. In the beginning, he followed traditional, “bro-dieting” wisdom which consisted of eating 6 or 7 meals a day filled with carbohydrates and very high protein. This nutritional protocol led to a downward spiral of health issues and disordered eating. After his third bodybuilding competition, Robert decided to try something new and began experimenting with a high fat, strict ketogenic approach to bodybuilding. He formulated his own approach to contest prep nutrition leveraging keto and earned his pro-status with bodybuilding in 2017.
He has since dedicated his life to learning and teaching others the benefits of following a well formulated, ketogenic lifestyle. The lessons learned led to his creation of the Keto Brick, a 1,000 calorie, ketogenic performance meal. Robert now works alongside his wife Crystal and their amazing team to continually create content and add a ton of value within this community. His mission is, and will continue to be, empowering others to believe in themselves and truly tap into their full potential by optimizing their body and mind.

Within six months, Dorian had lost 47 pounds, came off all medications, and finally got his mojo back. The Ketogenic lifestyle changed their lives and they wanted to give back. However, ketone testing was expensive at $4-$5 a strip.  In 2017, Dorian successfully launched Keto-Mojo, lowering the cost of ketone testing  99 cents a strip, offering the first affordable, accurate blood glucose and ketone testing meter with a lifetime guarantee. Keto-Mojo continues to lower the expense of testing, while adding more value and features.
