Careful, These AREN’T Low Carb Foods – Healthy Keto Diet

Occasionally, we accidentally eat food that have more carbohydrates than we thought. We also, sometimes eat too much of a low carb food, therefore eating more carbs than we thought.

I can say that I was surprised by some of the carbohydrate counts on a few of the foods that Patrick presented. This again reinforces how important it is to read labels and weigh your food. The only way that you can be certain that you have not eaten more carbs than you body can manage is to weigh them.

Ate Like Dr. Berg and This is What Happened – Healthy Keto Diet

What will I eat if I cut out bread, rice, potatoes, and pasta? The common question that is asked by those who learn about the ketogenic diet. Especially if Keto is being presented as a solution for metabolic issues. When I was faced with this question, I just ate like Dr. Berg given the amazing results I saw that he had in his own health and helping so many other people.

Making the decision to eat like Dr. Berg was not hard. You see, the pain in my hip was so extreme, I was desperate to find a real solution. I also prefer to use all natural solutions, so food seemed to be the obvious solution.

The fear of not being able to eat food and the fear of being hungry all the time, like all other diets, seems insurmountable to most people. So finding Dr. Berg’s videos explaining that I would be able to eat such a large amount of food was very comforting.

Another Attack on Coconut Oil, This is Why CBC is Wrong – Healthy Keto Diet

There a many reasons that have been discussed to promote the use of coconut oil. Health and weight loss benefits among some of the benefit of consuming coconut oil.

We all know that high fat, high carb leads to excessive weight gain. But they do not even speak about sugar in this video.

Honestly, I do see where bringing sugar into the story would have probably upset whoever sponsored this video. There seems to be a strong underlying “saturated fat is bad” message. Which makes me think that they used coconut oil to take a shot at keto without actually saying it out loud. The cyclist who puts fat in his coffee, going to the coffee shop and ordering two coffees with coconut oil. Seems that they focused on those fatty coffees a bit too much.

Jillian Michaels and Intermittent Fasting: Why She’s Wrong – Healthy Keto Diet

I’m constantly baffled by the videos that I watch from Jillian Michaels. Her ability to mislead people about their health while in the same breath promoting her book is amazing. The question I have is, if you cannot even define intermittent fasting, why would I believe anything you’ve written about autophagy and apoptosis.

As I’ve often said, you do not need to agree with a way of life to appropriately define it. You can always sell products and services to people that are unnecessary because people like to have easy answers. That is not going to change because the truth about carbohydrate is being shared.

The Game Changers, Misleading on Purpose! – Healthy Keto Diet

The game changers was a very misleading movie and I think that was done on purpose. The majority of the movie was spent trying to convince us to set aside what we know about health for their fictional idea that a plant based diet will improve disorders we know are caused by excessive carbohydrates.

It is unfortunate that we allow ourselves to push agendas at the expense of people’s lives. I would have loved to have seen some proper research and evidence to help validate the claims made in the movie, but …
