How much protein on keto? This sounds like such an innocent question. But it’s not as straightforward as it seems.
If, like me, you have known about and applied the keto diet for some time, it’s principles may seem like common sense. You may have forgotten how radically different it is from the diet recommended by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (USDA CNPP).
This article is the third in our series on the ketogenic diet, so I am not going to repeat the information given elsewhere, but you may want to read the previous articles to get a better understanding about ketosis and about carbohydrates (specifically vegetables).
If you are trying to get into ketosis and stay there, one of the most important things to learn about is "keto vegetables" – the vegetables that are allowed in a keto diet. Some people ask which are keto-safe or keto-approved vegetables.
Ketosis means that your body is producing ketones and your brain is using them as its source of fuel, instead of using glucose. That sounds simple enough. However, understanding why this switch of fuel is so beneficial to your health, and how to get your body into this state requires a bit of learning.
Tinea versicolor is not a dangerous disease, but it is extremely irritating and upsetting for those who have it. Whether you choose the medical route or a tinea versicolor natural treatment, it can be very frustrating, with many people complaining that what they are doing is not working.
There seem to be two stages to dealing with this: first, treat the current infection, and second, prevent it recurring.
We’ve had a more detailed discussion about this in our article called How to boost a tinea versicolor diet for remarkable results.
There’s no question that the correct tinea versicolor diet is essential if you want to rid yourself of this embarrassing and irritating infection. However, treatment and prevention require several extra prongs of attack to be really effective. You can boost your results by following our 10 tips.
We’ll start by looking at what tinea versicolor is, and then look at what you should do if you have it. To note, is that it is also sometimes called pityriasis versicolor.
It is surprisingly tricky to find the best paleo protein powder. Have you ever started a project thinking that it will be pretty easy and straightforward, and then finding that it is anything but? Well, that’s what happened to me with this review.
What I found was that, although we might think we know what the paleo diet is, "the devil is in the detail". There are all sorts of little things that make the difference between paleo and non-paleo.
How long does it take to get into ketosis? To be honest, I hadn’t heard about ketosis until a few years ago. And I certainly wasn’t asking how long it would take me to get into ketosis! Now I’m glad that I did hear about it, and that I did get into ketosis, because it has made a significant difference to my health and my life.
If you’re still wondering what ketosis is and whether it’s important, I hope that I’ll be able to answer some of your questions. At the end, I’ll be asking you, "How long does it really, honestly, genuinely take to get into ketosis?"
The many health benefits of berberine may be setting it up for a position as one of the most powerful supplements in the world. It is one of the few natural products that has been shown to be as effective as, and even more effective in some cases than prescription drugs.
Today, berberine is becoming recognized for helping with a whole range of medical conditions, including metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and triglycerides, heart disease, cancer and inflammation.
I am really excited to write about the proven effectiveness of berberine for weight loss – or, to be more accurate, fat loss. I have been searching for the best berberine supplements on the market to help with fat loss and I have found a few interesting products.
If berberine were a pharmaceutical it would be considered a miracle drug. The list of health benefits that it offers is impressive, to say the least. Numerous studies have also shown that it is performs better than some of the drugs prescribed for problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and obesity.
How often have you read posts and just got irritated by half-truths about topics? May I have a little rant? There are multiple benefits if I choose flaxseed oil for skin health. So why don’t we stick with what it does so well and not try to make a whole lot of unsubstantiated and downright fake claims about what is not good at?
Before we talk about out which is the best flaxseed oil for health, we need to discuss whether it’s good for your health at all.
Some proponents of all-natural and health products seem to believe that flaxseed is healthy, reconsidering their recommendation that flaxseed oil should be an essential part of your diet.
People also seem confused about what it is good for. They wonder whether they can use it for weight loss, to control diabetes, to lower cholesterol, to minimize menopause hot flashes, for gout and inflammation, for joint pain, for cancer, as a laxative, or even for thyroid health? Can it be used while pregnant and breastfeeding, and is it good for their babies and toddlers? People even ask if it is good for dogs and horses? Is flaxseed oil good to use on hardwood surfaces such as floors and furniture? Can I use it to season a cast iron pot?
