What is the Keto Diet?
A ketogenic diet is a low carbohydrate way of eating that triggers a metabolic state of ketosis. While originally formulated to reduce the amount of seizures in epileptic children, the additional health benefits being recorded are staggering.
The body thrives in state of ketosis and many experience major health improvements including:
- effortless weight loss
- high energy levels & sharp mental clarity
- managed blood sugar (even reversal of T2 diabetes)
- improved mental health (depression, anxiety)
- hormonal regulation & fertility (PCOS)
- better digestion (IBS)
- ... and more!
