A healthy and happy holidays to all our friends and family at TNC
'Tis the season for friends, family, cheer, celebration, and… food. Whether you’ve recently started dieting, have been watching your intake for a while, or plan on starting in the new year, the Ketogenic diet should be on your radar. As the name suggests, Ketogenic diets capitalize on your body’s natural state of ketosis, where your body uses fat for energy instead of glucose. Your body enters ketosis through a low carb/high fat diet and is good for weight loss, controlling blood sugar, symptoms of epilepsy, and even acne.
WHAT TO EAT
Natural fats, fish, meat, cheese, above-ground vegetable, leafy greens, nuts and seeds
