Women purchase the Custom Keto Diet for two primary reasons: It gives excellent results for natural weight loss, and it reduces their risk for degenerative diseases.
For the past couple of years, the Ketogenic diet has become more prominent in discussion of women's nutritional enhancement.
In a nutshell, following a Keto diet means you will be eating natural foods, with a carb-restrictive menu, while meeting your energy requirements through ingesting quality fats and a little more protein.
Two of the first authors to peg the consumption of carbohydrates as unsafe for our health were, Dr William Davis, with his ground-breaking best-seller, Wheat Belly, and scientific investigative writer, Gary Taubes, with his own best-seller, Why We Get Fat.
(Taubes has now come out with a new best-seller, The Case For Keto.)
The primary attraction of the Ketogenic diet is that it is NOT just another fad diet. It's results are backed by years of scientific research, and peer-reviewed articles in respected medical journals.
Actually, it is not a diet, at all. Women purchase the Custom Keto Diet plan because it is blueprint of fact-based nutritional principles that empower women to a more positive lifestyle.
They also do it because they cannot get accurate nutritional information from the very people they are supposed to trust.
Marjorie Evans (36) is a nurse from Brookings OR. She said,
"I started hearing about the tremendous benefits of following a Ketogenic diet several years ago. It was mostly from friends who trained at the CrossFit gym, in town. They had lost a ton of inches, and looked really toned. I didn't pay that much attention, though, because I figured they were actually burning it off with all the running and rowing, they do.
However, two other friends, that I went to college with, contacted me through FaceBook. Each of them had lost 20 lbs in just about 4 months, and they looked like Olympic athletes! I was blown away.
They told me they had been following a Ketogenic diet, and the only exercise they did was to walk 45-60 minutes each morning.
Their pictures stayed with me all day.
During a break, I started a conversation with a couple of doctors about what I was seeing in my friends. They cautioned me that the Keto Diet was just another fad, and stick to eating whole grains and low-fat foods.
This was kind of a downer to hear this.
The next time I talked with my friends, I told them what 'so-called' medical experts at my hospital said about the Keto diet.
They all laughed, and said two doctors at their CrossFit gym gave a presentation a few weeks ago, and told the members that the majority of doctors do NOT have to take any kind of nutrition class to graduate from med school!
That could not be possible, I said.
They assured me it was true. One of them even gave me a podcast on a thumbdrive where a woman said she graduated from a prestigious Ivy League medical school...and NEVER had to take a nutrion class!
One of the doctors told the group that less than 20% of all medical school required a nutrition class to graduate."
She continued, "I was stunned! Even though there were studies coming out about the valid connection between eating natural foods, and preventing degenerative diseases, the doctors were clueless!
doctors said that if you went to Veterinarin School, you had at least 2
years of pet/animal nutrition...and possibly more!
To top it off, the physicians speaking at their CrossFit gym said the lag time between when valuable information is presented, and when it finally gets filtered down to family practioners is...are you ready for this?...20 YEARS!
It takes almost two full decades for for doctors to accept valid research, that has gone under much peer-review.
They said, when it comes to nutrition, it is a combination of being pig-headed, too lazy to keep up with reading research journals, too entrenched with what they heard in medical school...and many do not even consider nutrition as a serious modality to help their patients.
They'd rather learn about a new drug!
Right now, your doctor has critical nutritional information that can significantly benefit your health, and provide preventative protocol for Alzheimer's disease, Type 2 diabetes, and heart disease...but you will not find it being discussed for another 20 years!"
Today's women have become carbohydrate-dependent. Food companies enrich (???) their products with sugar and industrial seed oils to make them taste delicious. The average American woman consumes over 300 grams of carbs EVERYDAY!
Women can snack mindlessly on so-called "diet cookies" that are labeled "fat free!", but their carb and sugar content is astronomical.
Carbs/sugar stimulate insulin - high insulin results in fat storage.
And, although these foods taste out of this world, they are sabotaging women's bodies, and their overall health, especially their brain health.
At my CrossFit gym, our Nutritionist said, "If you are undecided about following a Ketogenic diet, here are just three things I want you to remember about carbs.
#1 - They taste delicious! Nothing makes processed food taste better.
#2 - They put fat on your butt. A lot of it. You will get much heavier each year if you continue eating your present level of carbs.
#3 - They wreck your blood sugar regulation. They cause chronic inflammation. They make you extremely predisposed to developing Type 2 diabetes, and Alzheimer's disease once you pass 40."
Women purchase the Custom Keto Diet program because it provides them a game-plan for losing weight, for getting rid of belly and thigh fat...and keeping it off.
Weight loss on a Ketogenic diet is done all naturally. There are no starvation-type days. There are no dangerous drugs to take.
There will be aggressive elimination of sugar foods, refined high-carb foods, and industrial seed oils OUT of your present diet.
You will be eating clean, whole foods, and you will lose weight naturally.
Sadly, women are 2X as likely as men to develop Alzheimer's after age 60. There are almost 6 million people in the United States that are suffering from this treacherous disease, and 66% of them are women.
Dr David Perlmutter, the foremost neurosurgeon in the U.S. and best-selling author of Grain Brain, said, "Alzheimer's is a preventable disease. You can change your brain's destiny simply by adhering to a Ketogenic diet. When you get sugar foods, refined grains, and seed oils completely out of your diet, you remove the degenerative factors that harm your brain."
Alzheimer's does not all of a sudden show up one day as you get close to 60. Biological markers are present 10-20...and sometimes 30 years prior to the onset of this spirit-killing disease.
Women have the opportunity, RIGHT NOW, to block the the advancement of these critical markers. All they have to do is make some specific dietary changes, and stick to them.
A Ketogenic diet is actually not a diet...it is a lifestyle guide for optimal nutrition and protection for women's brain health.
Women purchase the Custom Keto Diet because they wish to give themselves the best opportunity for a functional, and independent life after menopause.
Contracting Alzheimer's disease, or Type 2 diabetes, which is a precursor to dementia, is scary and upsetting.
The ways to reduce the risk start with following a Ketogenic diet.
Women purchase the Custom Keto Diet because it is easy to understand, it makes sense, and it gets measurable results.
