The Keto Prescription
When it comes to preventive care, there are many different paths you can take. You can either seek out medication with your primary care physician or take matters into your own hands with a more holistic approach. For those who wish to change their health and lifestyle for the better with the support of a trained medical professional, The Keto Prescription with Dr. Jodi Nishida is here to help.
What is Keto?
Keto, or the ketogenic diet, is a dietary lifestyle that is low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and rich in healthy fats like avocado and extra virgin olive oil. Traditionally, the body runs on carbohydrates for energy. The keto diet, however, works by sending your body into a state called ketosis. During this state, the body burns off fat for energy rather than carbohydrates. This results in both weight loss and a series of health benefits for our patients.
Dr. Nishida is an advocate of the “clean” keto diet, meaning a diet that is devoid of heavily processed foods. She works with each patient individually to educate them on the best dietary habits for their lifestyle, often promoting eating a wide variety of vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats.
