Lets Taco 'bout Diet Trends

In my previous post I spoke about how dieting does not work long term. I talked about wanting to make a lifestyle change and eating what makes you feel good.

In doing so, you may find that you notice certain foods or food groups cause you to have stomach pain, bloat, feel lethargic and so on. If that is the case you may want to look more into eliminating these foods from you diet. This is something that takes the dedication towards making a healthy lifestyle change, not a quick fix. Do not let the haters talk you out of experimenting with different food choices either, again everyone's gut is unique and it is all about how you feel and what works for you.

Lets start the most controversial-The Ketogenic Diet

(you can lump most low-carb diets and loosely put paleo here)

1) Hakuna Ma-Keto

It means no worries for the rest of your days. You eat all the cheese and bacon you want, and magically you are down three pant sizes. Oh but wait, isn't it bad for you? Doesn't it make you feel like crap, starves you body and can cause adrenal fatigue...I know I don't need extra fatigue!!

The ketogenic diet, (or most low carb diets) if done correctly, can have amazing benefits.

If you have type II diabetes, are overweight to where back, gastric, knee or hip surgery is on the table, suffer from certain types of seizures, have PCOS or a candida overgrowth in your gut, keto could be right for you.
