Have you ever wanted to lose weight, only to nearly starve to death to lose five pounds? Then, does that 5 pounds reappear within weeks; with a few extra pounds just for fun? What have you tried? Exercise, avoiding sugar, or eating healthy. “About one-half of teenage girls (one in every two) and one-quarter (one in every four) of teenage boys have tried dieting to change the shape of their body.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2720872/ There is a new idea trending that isn’t about “diet”. It is about a scientific approach to a lifestyle change, called Keto.

The ketogenic diet is one of the most popular ways to lose weight in 2018. It is being tried with success worldwide,  according to the study done in 2005 by http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov. The study shows 41 countries,  other than the United States have people using this trendy diet. Interested in learning more? You can get all the details you need to know at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov.

In a nutshell (pun intended) The ketogenic Diet is a low-carbohydrate and  high-fat plan that includes moderate-protein at every meal. This combination of foods, when done correctly, puts your body ketosis. This is not a healthy stage to be in for extended periods of time, and can even be deadly to diabetics, But, it is a stage of metabolic makeup that makes ones body a fat-burning machine- burning not only consumed calories for the day, but also stored fat from prior years.

In addition to weight loss, A ketogenic diet could be an interesting alternative to treat certain conditions. The metabolic compound of the limited foods and increased fat intake help regulate blood sugar levels and lessen joint inflammation.

With this trend being so popular, I am surprised the Spill and the Prowl are not stocking shelves with Keto friendly options. Stores all over are meeting customers needs for high fat/ low carbohydrate snacks and meals. Can SHISD do the same? On behalf of all Keto followers, it would be nice to see more Ketogenic options.
