The Keto Diet has nutritional challenges you need to address.

In this interview Carrie Pattison discusses the ketogenic diet. The keto diet is very popular and people do lose weight. However the keto diet also has some nutritional challenges. We will discuss what the keto diet is as well as what it is not. Carrie will describe the keto concerns and how you can support yourself during dieting.

Specific Concerns

  • Keto Flu – Sometimes people feel worse when they begin the diet. Why is this and what can you do to minimize this?
  • Electrolyte Imbalance – Electrolytes are often low in the keto diet.
  • Excess Protein – What are the concerns with too much protein in the diet?
  • Nutrient Deficiencies – Lack of essential nutrients is a problem with the keto diet. Carrie discusses the specific nutrients to consider.
  • Digestive Issues – The keto diet is low in fiber, high in fat and high in protein. This can cause digestive problems.

Targeted Nutritional Solutions

Carrie discusses many of the products from Natural Factors that can be part of your nutritional program. We have discussed many of the nutrients in previous interviews with the experts from Natural Factors.

  • Aids to weight loss – Berberine, apple cider vinegar.
  • Anxiety and sleep – Suntheanine, Tranquil Sleep, Magnesium
  • Electrolytes – Deep Ocean Minerals, Fermented Greens.
