Is the KETO Diet Good For Weight Loss? Maria Emmerich Says YES But It’s Also GREAT For Fighting INFLAMMATION!
We hear a LOT about the Keto Diet lately. Many of us, myself included, (in the past) have been very skeptical of the Ketogenic Diet because it can sound like a fad or a trend. It’s ok to be skeptical- and many people who have been on a fitness journey for a while don’t like to “jump on the latest bandwagon” so they don’t even investigate new approaches. Note: this is not to try to convince you that you NEED TO SWITCH to a Keto approach to eating. If what you are doing works for you- keep at it! That said I am a firm believer that if you are stuck and not getting results, it’s time to CHANGE THINGS UP. For women who have been dieting/watching what they are eating and working out consistently for a while and yet, are not losing weight, I’d strongly recommend investigating the keto diet for fat loss. Why? Even my doctor is now suggesting that for my particular health and hormone issues, a keto approach (low carb, moderate protein, a good amount of healthy fats) is best for me. Combining that with fasting (y’all know I’ve done intermittent fasting of many kinds since way back in 2009)– is a solid solution for keeping my insulin issues in check. Tune in to listen to Maria’s extensive experience and make your own decision on what’s best for you. If you want to find out how my dietary changes are going and how it’s helping my hormones/insulin resistance and weight loss– feel free to PM me or also- join my private Facebook group for women: A Year Of You First where I share daily tips/articles insights into what I’m learning along the way.
