Brandy, better known as @Monet_Reloaded on Instagram, is a single mother of two who went through a 200+ pound weight loss. Her story is truly an inspiration for anyone, male or female, who wants to lose weight.
She’s not only a consultant for underground & indie music artists and producers, she’s an online fitness and wellness coach who specializes in the Keto Diet. When we heard her story of triumph from a number of her fans, we knew we had to feature her.
