blood glucose levels and preserve lean muscle mass. Examples of protein
foods are fish, chicken, turkey, meat, eggs and cheese. Protein drinks such
as whey protein isolate may be utilized.

There are numerous benefits that come with being on Ketogenic Diet: from
weight loss and increased energy levels to therapeutic medical applications.
Most anyone can safely benefit from eating a low-carb, high-fat diet.
