When Ketosis Is An Emotional Rollercoaster

Doing keto for weight loss, especially for someone with significant weight to lose, can be a straightforward affair: restrict carbs below 50 grams, and it’s likely that you will often be in some form of nutritional ketosis no matter what your fat-to-protein ratio is.

Emergency Keto Sauces
