The Keto Diet: The Truth Will Set You Free, But...
Hydration 101: Are you meeting your water needs?
“The truth will set you free… but first it will piss you off”- Gloria Steinem (Made more famous by Pharrel and Rihanna)
Today I am diving into waters that I have previously ran from like the plague. Whenever I see and hear crazy hype about the newest diet on social media and podcasts, I inherently cringe and want to go hide under a rock. Why? Because I know that I’ll see friends, family members, patients, and random people on the street trying that newest diet, and then asking me if I, too, think that it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. But as it turns out, I still love bread (slices or otherwise), and today, I feel compelled to write this post. We’re going deep about the ketogenic diet. We’re going to discuss real biochemistry and science. I’m going to cite peer reviewed scientific literature. And most importantly, we’ll discuss, as we always do, how you can practically eat and truly BE healthy in the real world. Here. We. Go.
8 simple habits to emerge from the holidays happier and healthier than ever
You’ve probably heard the old adage, “Drink 8 glasses of water a day.” You may have heard that water is important to either overall health, or weight loss, or both.
But what’s the real story behind this conventional wisdom? Can we look to real physiology and science to guide our thinking and behavior on hydration?
The holidays are upon us! Do you use the holidays as a time for reflection, mindfulness, and resetting healthy habits? Or do you feel that the time between Thanksgiving and January 1 to be stressful, busy, with too much unhealthy consumption and not enough exercise?
If your holiday experience is something like “Christmas is fun, but the holidays are stressful,” or “My New Years resolution is always to get back to regular exercise and eat vegetables again,” you’re not alone.
