The ketogenic diet can be powerfully healing. We often recommend ketogenic diet foods to our clients because it’s minimally invasive and powerful, whether they’re struggling with weight management, blood sugar imbalance, Type 2 Diabetes, neurological disorders, hormonal imbalance, or a cancer diagnosis.

Research indicates a ketogenic diet helps induce weight loss in obese patients and does so at a faster rate than other dietary interventions. Researchers have also linked ketogenic diets with lower levels of fasting glucose and the reversal of insulin resistance. We’ve certainly seen this in our practice! It’s one of the reasons we recommend a short ketogenic intervention to clients with any sort of metabolic dysfunction, blood sugar regulation problems or weight loss resistance.

Limiting our intake of carbohydrates to less than 50 g per day might sound simple, but when we consider that the Standard American Diet might soar to more than 300 g per day, we can see that it represents a pretty significant departure from our previous “normal.” A well-built ketogenic diet plan is usually described as high in fat, low in carbs, and moderate in protein. It does NOT have to mean eating only bacon, high-fat cheeses, and butter. In fact, we still recommend that you focus on the principles of a Paleo or grain-free Mediterranean diet, i.e., eliminating dairy and focusing on high-quality meats, fats, and vegetables.

Our Oven Baked Turkey Meatballs are the perfect addition to your ketogenic diet. There’s no need to sacrifice flavor when it comes to your health! And remember, all of our recipes are anti-inflammatory diet recipes!
