The Ketogenic Diet: For Weight Loss and Chronic Disease
This popular diet is a high-fat, adequateprotein, low-carb diet, which creates an ability for the body to burn its own fat. This provides a metabolic reset for the body. In addition to weight loss, the diet has shown great benefit in ridding the body of many degenerative conditions. As we remove the foods that are creating imbalance, the body can naturally detox.
