  • Overview

    Obesity continues to climb at an alarming rate. In 1960, the percentage of the population in North America was at 12 %, projections for percentage of the population that will be obese in 2020 is over 40%. Health costs are higher along with increased related disease states to an obese patient. The Ketogenic Diet is gaining more and more popularity in helping people lose weight. With the gaining popularity, its important for health care practitioners to understand how it works, and what is ketosis. Is the diet for everyone? Is it safe? Are there risk factors to be aware of? This presentation will cover how the body goes into ketosis from diet, with a food focused approach.
