 If you have been curious about the ketogenic diet but unsettled by conflicting opinions regarding the efficacy and safety of the protocol, progressive research is proving the diet to be beneficial for many. While opponents of the keto diet try to suggest that fat intake results
in negative cholesterol outcomes, trials such as this show otherwise. In fact, the ketogenic diet incorporates fats (avocado, olives, olive oil, salmon, and nuts to name a few!) that are advantageous for heart health
and overall wellness. Water is an important element of our everyday lives, especially on keto. In the beginning of your journey with the ketogenic lifestyle you should make sure you are getting adequate amounts of liquids, especially water, to replenish all water lost. When you cut down on carbs, your body begins to search for an alternative source of energy–fat and ketones.
