The ketogenic diet is a high fat, moderate protein, low carbohydrate diet, with a typical macro nutrient ratio of 80/15/5. First invented by Russel Wilder, the ketogenic diet was the standard of care in the treatment of epilepsy until the discovery of the drug Dilantin at which point the diet was phased out and replaced by anticonvulsant medications in the 1930-40's. Evolving nutrition science and advances in medical research over the last 20 years have begun to suggest that the root of many chronic illnesses such as Type 2 diabetes, cancer, obesity, heart disease, Alzheimer's disease & neurodegenerative conditions have a metabolic and/or autoimmune origin. The ketogenic diet has since evolved into several subsets of macro ratios, which include, LCHF (low carb, high fat), the carnivore diet and a Paleolithic ketogenic diet, to name a few. Our programs account for the metabolic flexibility, goals and health of each individual and we highly encourage our clients curate a nutrition and fitness plan that is fun and works within the framework of their lives.
While exercise is not required to be successful on a ketogenic diet to lose weight or improve overall health, it is highly encouraged to find a balance between KETO and a training program that works for your lifestyle and goals. One of the most beautiful aspects of fitness is the abundance of exercises that train the same muscle groups. We believe the key to success is incorporating movement that not only feels good, but corrects muscle imbalances that lead to injury and chronic pain. Fancy and expensive gym memberships and equipment are not required, it is possible to train in the privacy of your own home using your body or minimal equipment. At The PALEO Pharmacist LLC we teach you how to put together an effective exercise program that works for you and your goals. Fitness should be fun!!! Right??
