Event description

Description

Keto is a low carbohydrate, high fat diet which works by restricting the body's ability to utilize sugar (glucose) for energy, which shifts it to burn fat instead. Low carb, high fat diets have been a traditional way of eating throughout history and Keto is regaining popularity, as people fail to maintain weight loss on existing diets. The rapid escalation of Diabetes Type 2 in our society has also helped rekindle interest within the scientific community for diets that restrict sugar and Keto has been proven across years of study to lower blood glucose levels, which has been shown to reverse Diabetes type 2, reduce metabolic diseases, such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and even help to counter early-onset dementia. Keto’s ability to shift the body to burning stored fat makes it an effective weight loss methodology in its own right.

Keto is a lifestyle diet - It is a change of eating that will provide sustainable long term benefits. It promotes the use of natural foods which are available to all. As such, it can be a suitable diet for those with Celiac disease and those who wish to avoid gluten in their diet.

Dr. Tiffany Keenan is a Canadian Medical doctor and has been in practice for 19 years. With an undergraduate degree in Nutrition, Dr. Keenan has always had an interest in healthy eating but years of watching patients suffer with diabetes, weight gain and the associated diseases led her in 2012 to research keto methodologies and she has integrated keto lifestyle methods into her practice ever since.

At this presentation, Dr. Keenan will guide you through the highlights of this way of eating and introduce you to her Keto Lifestyle Program, which starts in January.
