Brayden Met His Weight and Fitness Goals

Since 2011 I’d struggled with my weight. Putting on a few extra pounds after getting married didn’t help the situation. I wasn’t obese per se, but I was definitely overweight. I wasn’t sick and didn’t feel “unhealthy,” in fact, I trained for and raced in a sprint triathlon. But buying bigger clothes and generally getting bigger and bigger had a toll on my mind. My wife and I had tried several different diets, including the raw food diet, a juice diet, slow-carb diet, etc. We even tried keto, but ...

Polyunsaturated fats, in particular, sparked the first investigations into how certain fats may be essential for optimal health, growth, and development.

The 10 Best Tips for Keto Diet Success

The 10 Best Tips for Keto Diet Success

The ketogenic diet is a diet like no other. It combines the power of calorie restriction with the unique benefits of nutritional ketosis to provide people with an effective way to lose weight and improve overall health.
