Ketogenic Blog Series Part I
Top Environmental Toxicants You Should be Avoiding
Diet isn't a dirty word. What and how much we eat has an incredible amount of power to impact our overall health.
Even though most of the time people hear of diets before swim-suit season, or as new-years resolutions, the best reason to consider dietary changes isn't for vanity. If our health can be improved by changes in diet, then it's worth the effort to see how it can do so. Especially in specific, doctor mandated situations, diet changes or plans, like the ketogenic diet can have amazing effects that go far beyond weight loss.
Part two of our ketogenic diet series will discuss the beneficial effects that a ketogenic diet has on cancer.

The good news is that changing your diet is one of the best ways to have a positive impact on your health. Our doctors put together a naughty-list of foods to avoid. Check it twice, and put it into practice so you can live a longer, healthier life.
