The Low Down on Keto
What is the Ketogenic Diet? The Ketogenic Diet was initially developed and used to treat children suffering from epileptic seizures, with more research indicating the efficacy in those with glioblastomas (a type of brain cancer).

"I am trying to limit my intake of added sugar...is there an standard accepted amount of daily added sugar that is considered not harmful?"
Q: I am trying to limit my intake of added sugar. So if I am counting sugar grams from the nutritional labels, should I bother counting the sugar grams from fresh fruit?

I know I should avoid all added sugar, but is there an standard accepted amount of daily added sugar that is considered not harmful? Thank you. A: Thank you for reaching ou...
