Some Important Things to Keep in Mind

Keto is great when it is working for you. Benefits include weight loss, lower blood sugar, mental clarity, and general well-being. However “Keto is not magic” as Sahil from Headbanger’s Kitchen has said.  You still need to count your caloric intake and commit to doing regular excersise to avoid pitfalls like dropping out of Ketosis and weight loss stalls.

My goal with SeriousKeto is to create a resource for people who enjoy cooking and who want to have fun creating keto foods that they thought they’d never be able to eat again. Sometimes, this means my keto will be a little “dirty” — not enough to knock you out of ketosis, but enough to make the “keto police” angry at me.

Unlike most doctors, I love questions and ideas from you… I used to be a fat, miserable, ignorant doctor, until I slowly discovered the power of removing the slow-poisons of the standard diet, and replacing them with the nourishment of a proper human diet…

Dr. Eenfeldt spent twelve years working as a doctor and eight of those years as a family physician, treating patients with low-carb, high-fat diets. During that time he witnessed amazing success for people with obesity and type 2 diabetes. But despite that, helping one person at a time couldn’t change the status quo. So in 2015 he quit.
