Keto OS Side Effects and Benefits: Is It Worth It?


Cheese and salami are apparently the best foods for your teeth


Vanessa Spina, the Ketogenic Girl, is back on the Low Carb Conversations Podcast! Vanessa is a ketogenic coach and educator, creating meal plans, delicious recipes and working with others to help them maximize health and loose weight with a ketogenic diet. She shares with us her story on how after years of chronic pain, fatigue and body image issues, a properly formulated ketogenic diet turned all that around. She even had a new book release on November 7th, Keto Essentials. 

Kara, Leah and Vanessa debate the new trend of exogenous ketones. Are they the most effective way to burn fat and get into ketosis? Vanessa explains her take on them and how she would rather see her clients make their own ketones and utilizing their healing properties. In the second article, it is explained how cheese and salami are the best foods for our teeth health. They provide the most fat soluble vitamins needed for healthy bones and keep the environment surrounding our teeth happy.

Learn more about Robyn's amazing turn around from guttate psoriasis through functional nutrition and Lisa's bio-individual approach to her thriving practice in Los Angeles.

Lisa, Robyn, Kara and Leah discuss an article surrounding moderation, that proposes moderation is the true key to health and success. But with so many different views on what eating "moderately" means, how can that be true? The main points from the article are: extreme diets create all or nothing mentality and unhealthy relationships with food easily persuade audiences. Lisa and Robyn break it all down, and discuss if moderation is truly the answer.

Ready for low fat avocados? Leah reads a shocking health headline about new avocados being sold in Spain that have 30% fat. What?! If you're thinking what we're thinking, head on over and listen to the response.

Listen in as Mandy shares her transformational story resolving her severe digestive issues through addressing her finances. She discovered that nutrition is not always the only answer; and she had to take a deeper look at her life to get to the root cause of her problems. Melanie talks about how keto gave her her life back, and eventually went on to start Keto Academy with the one and only Jimmy Moore!

Leah, Kara, Melanie and Mandy first discuss a headline related to finances to physical health. Mandy gives examples of how addressing the cause of your stress can resolve the physical symptoms in your life; and gives tangible tips to getting your finances on track. Melanie talks about how she sees stress related illness in her practice all the time and ways to deflect the stress.

Leah then reads a conflicting article about which foods are best for warding off hunger. The article pushes that amino acids from animal protein provide the most satiating affect, yet recommends a plant based diet simultaneously. See what they had to say about that one!

And remember out secret health headline, it's a sweet treat.
