Nutrition And Health Are Closely Related

Print this section Over the past century, essential nutrient deficiencies have dramatically decreased, many infectious diseases have been conquered, and the majority of the U.S. population can now anticipate a long and productive life. However, as infectious disease rates have dropped, the rates of noncommunicable diseases—specifically, chronic diet-related diseases—have risen, due in part to changes in lifestyle behaviors. A history of poor eating and physical activity patterns have a cumulative effect and have contributed to significant nutrition- and physical activity-related health challenges that now face the U.S. population. About half of all American adults—117 million individuals—have one or more preventable chronic diseases, many of which are related to poor quality eating patterns and physical inactivity. These include cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, and poor bone health. More than two-thirds of adults and nearly one-third of children and youth are overweight or obese. These high rates of overweight and obesity and chronic disease have persisted for more than two decades and come not only with increased health risks, but Continue reading >>

    Is the weight loss in keto all just down to calorie deficit? Or does keto lose more weight than if you followed a normal calorie restricted diet?

    All weight loss, regardless of what kind of diet you're on, comes down to calorie deficit. If you eat at a 500 calorie deficit on keto, you will lose weight at the same rate as if you ate a 500 calorie deficit on a 'normal' diet.
    The reason some people prefer keto is that cutting out carbs and upping the fat/protein portions helps reduce cravings and makes it more sustainable and easier to stick with in the long run. There are a handful of health benefits that keto has over SAD, but more rapid weight loss is not one of them.

    I especially agree the sustainable nature of the Keto diet. I used to love cheap unhealthy fast food and sweets, and I've found it so easy to stick to Keto while still eating foods that capture the essence of the flavors I love ie. cheeseburger patties, bacon, chocolate mousse (Jello Temptations Chocolate Mouse + Mascarpone + crushed nuts), pizza (pepperoni topped with pepperjack cheese and a drop of pizza sauce). I don't crave for much because many of the foods I like I can remove the carbs which are mostly filler anyway and dominant flavor of the food is still there.
