Keto Rid Me of Food Cravings and Turned Me Into a Fat Burning Machine

I am writing this article about Keto for you if you cannot lose weight no matter how well you eat or how much you exercise, if you have uncontrollable food cravings and/or food addictions, if you suffer from bulimia or binge eating disorder, if you have high blood sugar or insulin levels and/or if you have inflammatory conditions that do not resolve. Several years ago I took a supplement (Red Rice Yeast Extract) at the suggestion of a physician who believed that my LDL cholesterol was too high. The supplement, used in place of a statin to lower cholesterol levels, raises blood sugar (glucose) and insulin levels. After a year or so on the supplement, I ended up being pre-diabetic. ...

The Key to the Ketogenic Meal Plan

Recently I discovered that my blood sugar and insulin levels were elevated. After doing some research I discovered that the underlying reason my blood sugar was elevated was that I had been taking Red Rice Yeast extract. Why? It was recommended to me as a natural alternative to taking a statin. What I failed to do while taking it, was also supplement with CoQ10. This is super important for anyone considering taking statin or taking red rice yeast extract. Determined to lower my blood sugar level, I recently embarked on a ketogenic meal plan. Ketogenic meals are typically associated with people seeking weight loss, precisely because they lower blood sugar and insulin levels. But there are actually many reasons someone ...

Oh, Sugar!

In my practice, I spend a lot of time trying to educate my patients about food. One of the major learning curves for my patients is sugar. It is truly astounding how much sugar is in our food. I blog about this all the time. So I thought I would address the number one myth that I encounter in my practice: “I don’t add sugar to my foods, so I am ok, right?” WRONG. You don’t have to add the sugar, it is already there. Most people believe that “added sugar” means the sugar you add to your iced tea or put on your cereal. The Centers for Disease Control defines added sugar as “all sugars used as ingredients in ...

What Do You Mean “It Isn’t Really Olive Oil?”

If my readers know anything, they know that I am on a fake food crusade. We are all tired of buying foods that appear to be one thing, when in fact they are actually something else entirely. Take for example, olive oil. One of the basic staples of every kitchen. My guess is you have a bottle of it in your cabinet right now. If you are like me, and love to get a good deal on a quality item, you probably have a rather large container of it in your pantry. I’m guessing your bottle says it’s 100% extra virgin olive oil, that it is imported, and possibly it has some other phrases that lead you to believe it ...

Recipe: Cauliflower Chili

For those of you who are unaware, Cincinnati is chili country. We have strong opinions about chili in the Queen City. So I decided to try out my clean chili recipe on my unsuspecting neighbors at our block party last weekend. If I may brag for a moment, I won the “Best Chili” award! So what set my chili apart? Cauliflower. Yes, you read that right.  It can be used to make pizza dough, rice, and mashed “potatoes.”It is an excellent substitute and incredibly versatile. But even more than that, it is so good for you!  Back to the block party. Everyone was shocked that my chili was meatless, vegan, and grain free, because it had so much flavor and such ...

What Is An Antioxidant?

What is An Antioxidant? Antioxidants are the nutrients found in food that neutralize free radicals by sharing an electron with the free radical, making it whole again. Thus, antioxidants stop the chain reaction of free radical formation and the oxidative stress that prematurely ages us.  As a result, antioxidants provide protection against a long list of conditions and chronic diseases.  More importantly, they keep us from aging prematurely. Antioxidants come in several forms, including the vitamins A, C, and E, alpha lipoic acid, plant-derived polyphenols, and the element selenium. They are also found in nuts, broccoli, and colorful fruits and vegetables.  Blueberries, pomegranates, broccoli sprouts, green tea, and dark chocolate are just some of the antioxidant-rich “superfoods” found in almost ...
