Diet/Weight Loss Counselors to Promote New Eating Plans to Maintain Keto Weight Loss

"A ketogenic (keto) diet is high in fat and protein and low in carbohydrates. Most of the body's cells prefer to use blood sugar (glucose) as their main source of energy, says Harvard Health Publishing. The keto diet forces your body to use a different type of fuel. Instead of providing your body with glucose from carbohydrates, the keto diet relies on the liver to break down stored fat into molecules called ketones. (This process is called ketogenesis; that's where the diet's name comes from.)"

Increasing Number of Americans Require Controlled Diets

Menu items with descriptions that reference gluten, cholesterol, sugar and other health-related topics are expanding on restaurant menus as more operators recognize that an increasing number of Americans require controlled diets. The vast majority of consumers (73%) feel that restaurants should be transparent about their food's fat, sodium and sugar content, as well as potential food allergens. Women feel even stronger about menu transparency than men.
