Have you heard of the keto diet?
The keto diet…or ketosis….or the ketogenic diet - they all refer to putting your body into a state of nutritional ketosis through consuming close to no carbohydrates (usually under about 20g or 30g per day).
It's very hot and trendy right now, but it's not a new concept. This type of eating has been around for a long time and used as treatments for things like epilepsy, other brain diseases, and some doctors even prescribe it for certain cancers.
But the main reason it's gained popularity recently is for it's potential to help people with weight loss. You may have even heard from a friend or family member that they "went keto" and lost a bunch of weight.
While I am not against the ketogenic diet for some people, some of the time, I am not a fan of it for most people, most of the time.
Watch (or listen to) my latest Workshop Wednesday video in which I dive into this topic. I was able to reverse my PCOS and insulin resistance holistically, but without going on a "keto" diet. In this video I share 4 ways I've been able to do this and how you can start to get many of the same health-promoting and weight loss benefits of the ketogenic diet without actually being in ketosis as well.
