In the 1970s 4.2 million Americans were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and today there are 30 million people being treated for the disease. It’s obvious that something in the American diet changed. The amount of sugars being added to foods in addition to a food pyramid designed to sell agricultural products have left much of the nation unhealthy and addicted. To take back control of our health and nutrition we need an approach that satiates us and allows our bodies to heal themselves. Enter the keto diet. While not new and definitely not a fad diet, keto immediately impacts blood sugar levels and reduces the amount of medication necessary to keep insulin levels in check.
Drew welcomes Lauren and Mary of Fearless Keto. A mother-daughter team dedicated to providing support to women and girls who want better health but have difficulty breaking past eating patterns. Lauren struggled with committing to a healthy lifestyle in spite of the direction of her mother, Mary, who is a Certified Dietician. Both women share the story of what motivated them to create a support group and to provide products help people gradually adopt a keto lifestyle.
