Frequently Asked Questions – Adapt Your Life® Academy

Adapt Your Life® Academy


Adapt Your Life Academy is an e-learning Academy that offers multiple keto and low-carb related online courses.

Dr. Westman is an internationally sought after authority and educator on the science and practical applications of low-carb and ketogenic diets. For the past 20 years, his clinic at Duke University has been the destination for physicians and patients alike, wanting to truly understand and implement the low-carb ketogenic diet to treat chronic illness. He is known for his research, having spearheaded some of the first clinical trials in the U.S on low-carb eating. He is an internal medicine physician and board certified in obesity medicine. He is a past president of the Obesity Medicine Association and is a New York Times best-selling author. He is the clinical director of Adapt Your Life® Academy.

We have just launched the Academy and our first course is a Masterclass taught by Dr. Westman, called ‘Keto Made Simple’ or ‘KMS’ for short. Click here for more information. 

Nope! It’s the perfect fit for anyone who is just getting started with their weight loss and health efforts, but it will also be helpful for more experienced keto followers who are looking for a refresher and to get back to basics. It provides a solid foundation and understanding of the keto diet that will leave you feeling confident that you’ll be successful with keto going forward.

Yes. However, as with any new diet, if you have a medical condition or you’re on medication, we recommend that you consult with your doctor first, particularly if you are taking medication for type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure. Changing the way you eat is often even more powerful than medication. As you get healthier, your medication may become too strong and adjustments will need to be made under your doctor’s supervision.

We have additional offerings on the way and exact availability dates are currently being worked out. We’re planning to have our next course available sometime in March which will be geared toward breaking fat loss stalls on low-carb/keto diets, and will be provided by Amy Berger, CNS, based on her book, The Stall Slayer.

Yes, as of now, our courses are online only.

Yes! As an AYLA member and student, you will gain access to a private (student-only) Facebook group where you’ll be able to ask questions and get support. The ADAPT Team will be active in the group during the entire duration of the course, which is 3 weeks & Dr. Westman & nutritionist Amy Berger will be live in the group twice a week to answer your questions too.

Yes. The course itself is a video training course inside of a private student-only portal. ( The Facebook group is NOT the course. The Facebook group is essentially an ‘additional support’ option over and above the course, for a period of 3 weeks. It is not mandatory to join the Facebook group, but we highly recommend it in order to get the full intended experience and added benefits of support and community.

The KMS Masterclass is a self-paced video course with Dr. Eric Westman. It includes 3 weeks of group support within a private Facebook group (exclusively for KMS students), where Dr. Westman, Amy Berger and the ADAPT team will be there to support you during the 3 week program. The course itself has 4 modules (three lessons in each module), designed for rapid implementation and sustainable momentum so you can get started as soon as possible if you’re new to keto, or get back on the right path if you’ve been doing it for a while but need to reorient back to the basics.

Great news – you will have lifetime access! All the written content in your resource library is downloadable, including the video transcripts, meaning you can download it onto your computer, so you will always have access to it, whenever, wherever. The video content, however, is not downloadable. As for the members area, you will have access to it for a period of no less than 4 months, and possibly longer.

We offer an ongoing learning and support membership (only offered to Academy ALUMNI). Once the Masterclass is over, you can join the membership if you wish. The AYLA membership was inspired by our first cohort of students who wanted to continue on with us. It comes with a TON of added value, weekly LIVE sessions and ongoing access to Dr. Westman, Amy Berger and Team AYLA and is 19.95/month, cancel at any time.

The Masterclass is based on the method Dr. Westman has used in his clinic for over 20 years. The food list and method of implementation is backed by clinical research and thousands of patients who have lost weight, reversed chronic illness, eliminated medications, and regained their vitality and zest for life. Plus, armed with the knowledge you’ll gain in the Masterclass, you’ll be ready to get started with keto or jump back in if you’ve been away for a bit, with nothing to buy but your food! No special gadgets or devices needed, no complicated tracking software. Just great low-carb foods.

There is free information readily available on the internet. A lot of it. However, much of what you’ll find is conflicting, confusing, and downright incorrect and scientifically inaccurate. Following the wrong advice can lead you further away from where you want to be.

His simple, 4-step N.E.S.T. framework will leave you feeling inspired, confident, and ready to move forward on your own. It’s straightforward and uncomplicated. You don’t need to sift through hundreds of videos and spend thousands of hours trying to keep track of unnecessary details.
