What Is The Ketogenic Diet, myths busted

Should you try the ketogenic diet for weight loss and other health reasons? Today we chat about the ketogenic diet and the effects/ benefits along with cholesterol, epilepsy, and diabetes. By the way, have rebranded to Nuvitru Wellness!

Have you tried the ketogenic diet and heard of keto flu? It is when you dive into keto too hard at first and your body is in shock trying to adapt from your previous heavy carb living. Your body should only spill ketones (liquid fats) in the beginning and your kidneys will adapt to absorbing ketones. We talk with Dr. Oubre to debunk myths and give you a functional perspective on keto

  • Is this diet only for long or short term?
  • Why ketogenic cycling?
  • What’s the ideal range of carbs?
  • How many calories should you be consuming on keto?
  • Did you know protein turns into carbs when in excess?
  • What percentage of fats should you be eating?
  • How to test ketones and is it necessary?
  • Who is at risk on a for this diet?

Micronutrient deficiencies are due to an “old” keto diet mentality lacking diverse whole foods and variety of plants and vegetables. Quality and diversity is so important. Include as many organic herbs, vegetables, and seeds as possible.

Make sure to reach out to us if you have questions with micronutrient deficiencies, blood sugar, weight loss, or the keto diet. We love our community and love nothing more that to find and treat the root cause of issues you may be experiencing. Here at Nuvitru Wellness, we take on a full body bio-individual approach.
