what is a ketogenic diet

Ladies, are you wondering what is a ketogenic diet and is it the best #1 diet for tip top health? I can easily answer this for you!

Ever since I watched a weight loss show on tv and saw the “Caveman Diet,” I have been curious about learning what is a ketogenic diet and is it a safe and effective way to lose weight? I watched various contestants on the show eat a vegan diet, a raw food diet, the caveman diet, and the Paleo diet, and another contestant just used exercise to lose weight and eat a regular diet. The contestant that ate the Caveman diet seemed to lose weight the fastest, and he seemed happy, but I had to wonder, was it a safe and healthy way to lose weight or not?

I watched him eat a lot of butter, high-fat dairy products, eggs, steak, avocado, and coconut, and I sat there wondering if all of that fat that is part of learning what a ketogenic diet is, was indeed a good thing or not. I did not see him eating salad, greens, berries, or vegetables and wondered about his antioxidant levels. I have always preferred to have my clients eat plenty of greens, berries, and a side dish, maybe 4 oz. of lean protein and a side of good fat. Growing up in the 70s and 80s, I was in the generation of kids raised on the low-fat diet craze. 

Over time I had to ask myself the question, what is a ketogenic diet doing to cardiovascular health, and the immune system and will people be able to keep the weight off that they have lost? I know people have said that it was okay if the total cholesterol levels went up. Still, I had to think about the cholesterol and lipoprotein levels, inflammatory levels, and particle sizes. 

I started running bloodwork on my clients in Atlanta, that came in doing a ketogenic diet and found that many had a higher Lipoprotein A level and C reactive protein level. Both markers indicate a genuine concern for cardiovascular disease. And when I would run comprehensive antioxidant testing, they would test low. 

So, this holistic nutritionist had to come up with a plan to help people get into ketosis (fat burning), stay there and be healthy all at the same time. And I did! Instead of asking what a ketogenic diet is, I had to teach my clients what a healthy and realistic way to do a ketogenic diet is. The goal was to get healthy, fit, and lean while avoiding causing health problems.

Can you get into fat burning successfully without eating keto? Yes!

Can you do a ketogenic diet and be healthy at the same time? Yes!

Are you ready to learn what is a ketogenic diet and a healthy diet lifestyle? Great!
