ketogenic diet

When it comes to resolving type 2 diabetes, nutritional ketosis is a powerful tool. Nutritional ketosis occurs when your body breaks down fat for energy rather than carbohydrates. Also called the ketogenic diet, nutritional ketosis is achieved when blood sugars are low, no insulin is released into your system, and your body starts producing ketones. Research now supports the use of nutritional ketosis to rapidly normalized blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetics. During this episode, Dr. Vaughn discusses the benefits and challenges of nutritional ketosis.
