INTRODUCTION TO THE KETOGENIC DIET

Ever since the reports have come out that SATURATED FATS ARE GOOD FOR US, there has been an increased amount off people who have jumped on the KETOGENIC DIET.

Terms that stand out here, are:

BulletProof Coffee,
More FAT, moderate Protein, Plenty of Vegetables.
and, Intermittent Fasting

According to the website EveryDayHealth.com:
On a ketogenic diet, the goal is to restrict carbohydrate intake so that the body must break down fat for energy. When this occurs, fat is broken down in the liver, thereby producing ketones, which are by-products of your metabolism. These ketones are then used to fuel the body in the absence of glucose.

CARBOHYDRATES come in all shapes and sizes; they are the precursors to “sugar”; and even though they do have a function in the body, too many of them can put our system into an inflammatory state.
Saturated Fats, on the other hand, provide energy without inflammation.

We have all types of fats, and Keto-Friendly products …at the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center on North 19th Avenue.
