Wellness Warriors Radio

Jun 8, 2020

This week, we're bringing back one of our most popular topics and a special rebroadcast episode on all things Keto! 

We guess you've probably heard of it, but we share our perspective on why Keto is all the rage and why it’s exploded in popularity. We focus on the trending part of the Keto diet which is mostly for fat loss or weight loss, and just for general health. We cover the basics of ketosis and how our bodies use fat as its main source of energy. If you are currently using the Keto method or are just curious about the fast-growing approach, we share some truths and debunk myths surrounding the Ketogenic approach.

In this episode we talk about…

  • Background & types of Ketogenic diets
  • Ketosis and its impact on our bodies
  • How to get into ketosis
  • Net carbs vs. total carbs
  • Importance of quality of food on a ketogenic diet
  • MCT oils and exogenous ketones
  • Chasing numbers vs. chasing results
  • 3 types of ketone bodies and ketone tests
  • Importance of glucose to ketone ratio
  • Health benefits of a ketogenic diet
  • Personalizing a ketogenic diet
  • What the ketogenic diet is NOT  

Plus, check out our free Top Keto Foods list to get started on a healthy ketogenic diet today!
