How the Ketogenic Diet Can Help You for Weight Loss

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The ketogenic diet is a nutrient restrictive diet that was initially developed somewhere in the 1920s as a treatment for epilepsy. The diet can be described as a high-fat, low-carb, and adequate-protein diet. Besides being a successful treatment for epilepsy that does not respond to medication, the ketogenic diet is also considered a weight-loss type of diet. And although the ketogenic diet may help you lose weight, it is generally not considered the best approach to sustainable weight loss.

How Eating More and Moving Less Helped Me Lose Weight and Change My Life

BY JULIE FREDRICKSON My name is Julie Fredrickson and I am the co-founder of Minimum Viable Fitness, a fitness, and nutrition program designed to fit the lifestyle of busy professionals. I’m also a three-time start-up founder, a powerlifter, and a passionate advocate for taking a balanced approach to entrepreneurship. But I wasn’t always fit, and I didn't always have the most balanced approach to my health. When I first attempted to turn my life around via diet and fitness, I learned I was doing it all wrong.

It's a mistake to assume that two practices are mutually exclusive, meaning we can do one OR the other like Drink diet Coke OR drink water, Smoke OR exercise, when in reality the items are completely separate....
