Episode 92: Pros & Cons of the Keto Diet

Sep 3, 2018

Episode 92: Pros & Cons of the Keto DietToday we are diving into the popular Ketogenic diet–what it is, what it’s all about and why anyone would want to willingly jump into this diet! As Nutritional Therapy Practitioners, we’re sharing our take on the Keto diet, a few of the “pros” and some of the “cons” and why this diet can be amazing for some, but not so much for others.

We get a lot of questions about this diet specifically, but also on other diet trends and on today’s episode we wanted to make sure to clear up our thoughts and feelings on diets, in general. We’re big fans of creating balance within your food and lifestyle and we’re openly sharing how we feel about these trendy diets.

Since so much can be said about the Ketogenic diet, we wanted to share some resources with you in case you want to dig deeper. These resources cover both sides of the coin, those in favor and those less excited about the Keto diet so please take the time to look into each thoroughly if you’re considering trying it out.
