The ketogenic diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares many similarities with the Atkins and low-carb diets.

It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat. This reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.

When this happens, your body becomes incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy. It also turns fat into ketones in the liver, which can supply energy for the brain.

Ketogenic diets can cause massive reductions in blood sugar and insulin levels. This, along with the increased ketones, has numerous health benefits.

While it’s easy to think that the keto diet is one-size fits all, there are actually several different types of keto diets, and they all have different benefits, depending on what your nutritional goals are.

So, don't fall for those online gimmicks! Without expert advice and proper supervision, you may not be consuming the right proportions of food. Too much or too little of a certain nutrient can be a danger to your health and prevent you from reaching your goals. 

Our Keto programs is customized for you and can include our ketogenic meal replacements as well as guides to know when and what to eat. With medical and dietary supervision, we are able to safely ensure optimal weight loss.
