Keto Cinnamon Roll in a Mug: THM:S, Ketogenic, Grain-Free, Gluten Free, Low Carb

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook such as the Volcano Muffin, Strawberry Muffin, and Peach Muffin. BUT, I wanted my Keto Cinnabon to be higher in fat than most of the Satisfying muffins in the cookbook, more in line with ketogenic macros (60%-75% calories from fat, 15%-30% calories from protein, and 5%-10% calories from carbs or less) So I experimented, and subjected my poor husband to mug muffin after mug muffin, until I finally landed on the the perfect combo of ingredients+ cooking time! One note: I prefer recipes a bit sweeter than a lot of people do.  So feel free to […]

The Ketogenic Diet For Weight Loss, Energy, and Better Health | Onnit Academy

by health and nutrition advice journalist
We all know that food is our main source of energy. So why then do most people claim to be tired all the time when it’s clear from looking at them that they get plenty to eat? The problem is that they don’t get their energy from the right foods. When you follow a carbohydrate-based diet, your blood sugar rises and falls sharply with every meal. When it goes down, so does your energy—this is the crash you feel shortly after lunchtime that makes you want to fall asleep at work in the afternoon. By reducing the amount of carbs […]

Weight Watchers’ Profits Plummet as More People Embrace Ketogenic Diet

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Weight Watchers, one of the world’s largest diet companies, is struggling yet again as shares dwindle amid “competition” from ketogenic diets. In 2011, the company gave up on calorie counting, admitting it was “unhelpful.” Now, CNN Business reports people are increasingly turning away from carbs — and diets that promote them. “CEO Mindy Grossman attributed the problem to the keto diet, a popular eating regimen that makes bread and other carbs taboo. She said during a call with analysts … that keto is ‘becoming a cultural mean’ and she even called it a ‘keto surge,’” CNN writes. As a result […]

Ketogenic Diet Myths vs. Facts | Nina Teicholz

by health and nutrition advice journalist
A slew of articles in recent months have referred to the ketogenic diet as a “fad” or “trend.” It’s “dangerous,” claimed one article, and an anonymous post by the Harvard Public School of Public Health said the diet “comes with serious risks.”1 Yet strangely, these critics seldom cite scientists or doctors who work with the diet, and many—including the Harvard article—cite no medical literature to substantiate their allegations. Without substantiation, many simply rehash long-contradicted, outdated claims. A ketogenic diet is high in fat and low in carbohydrates. It’s called “ketogenic” because people on this diet shift from using glucose (a […]

A Ketogenic Diet and Alcohol: Can they Mix? | Ruled Me

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Having a social life on a ketogenic diet is something that many find hard to do. There are carbs pretty much everywhere you look, and that’s especially the case when you’re in a bar. Cutting out all the beer and wine is a great start, but sticking with hard liquor is usually the best choice. Even though hard liquor is made from natural sugars, grains, potatoes, and fruits – during the fermentation and distillation process that sugar is converted into ethyl alcohol. Drinking liquor can in fact deepen your level of ketosis, but will slow weight loss down. Ingestion of […]

The Evidence Against The Ketogenic Diet For Cancer

by health and nutrition advice journalist
The ketogenic diet was the most popular diet searched on Google in 2018 and has officially reached mega-fad status, as did the Atkins Diet in its heyday. If you don’t know what the ketogenic diet is, there are, by my estimation, 1.2 zillion articles about it online, so I’m not going to re-explain it here, but basically the ketogenic diet is a diet comprised of 70-80% fat, too much protein, and almost zero carbohydrates. Before I dig in to the ketogenic diet for cancer, I need to say this… Obesity is the second leading cause of cancer. If you are […]

Ketogenic diet: What a scientist who’s done keto diet for 6 years eats

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Six years ago, David Harper considered himself relatively healthy. The anatomy and physiology professor loved an occasional cookie, but he exercised often, cooked nutritious meals at home, and tried to stick to conventional nutrition advice: not too many calories, low amounts of fat. But Harper started to realize that saturated fat may not be so bad, and that maybe it was the carbohydrates he ate that were causing him to pile on extra pounds and increasing inflammation. “We’ve been telling people to eat the wrong diet for 40 years, and we’ve seen the results,” Harper told Business Insider. He’s is […]
