Is Keto the way to go?

What is it:

There are different types of Keto diets, but in general it is a high fat, moderate/high protein-based diet reducing or eliminating carbohydrate intake.

How it works:

When you reduce or eliminate carbohydrates from your diet, your body has to break down its own fat stores (into “KETOnes”) to be used as energy.

Some potential health benefits:

May help reduce excess carbohydrate/sugar intake.

May help reduce total calorie intake which can lead to weight-loss.

May help people consume more “whole, non-processed” foods.

Some potential health risks:

Carbohydrate-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, and whole-grains provide many important vitamins and minerals and have many health benefits such as helping digestion, joints, and preventing disease.

High-fat and high-protein diets may cause health problems and weight-gain.

Our take:

We believe consuming a diet that contains all the vital nutrients (including carbohydrates from vegetables, fruits, and whole-grains) is best. However, nutrition varies depending on many factors and some people may find they may need less or more of a certain nutrient.

And remember, whenever you begin to make changes to your diet, never make drastic changes, always make slow changes over a longer period of time!
