Is the Keto diet good for me?
There is no one approach to health. What is great for one person might not work for another. never think of health in terms of diet but nutrients. make sure what you eat is well balanced. the best approach is considering lifestyle changes that meet your needs and are sustainable. Keto like any other diet has its positives and negatives. it puts your body in Ketosis which allows you to lose weight but it also puts you at risk of increased cholesterol. we educated about your options and I am sure you will make the best choice for you.

What is the best approach to tackle the increased incidence of diabetes in the community
The best way to manage community health is to evaluate the perceptions of people. Design a study that studies the health beliefs of that community then consider health promotion approaches that consider multiple systems that impact the individual's choices such as the community, economic, political and environmental influences

I am battling with diabetes and obesity. I have been in and out of the hospital and currently taking 20 pills per day. My doctor recommended bariatric surgery or lifestyle change. What are some recommendations for diet and exercise for a 50-year-old male that can dramatically enhance his health indices? are there certain foods I can eat? I am ready to change my life.
first, congratulations! this is a great step you are taking and you can do it! first, you have to understand that Rome was not built in a day. be kind and gracious to yourself and be patient. trust the process. first, we will start with increasing your fluid intake, diabetes has a great impact on your kidneys so let's focus on flushing toxins out of the body then increasing healthy micronutrients into your diet. We will replace 1 meal with a nutritious alternative like a smoothie for the first month. in other words, for the first month, you will have a smoothie for breakfast every day without needing to replace any of your meals. In the second month, we will replace salad for dinner then in the 3rd month, we will replace refined carbs with more complex carbs for lunch. additionally, we will start the first month with 20 minutes walk then 40 minutes in the second month the 60 minutes in the 3rd. we will evaluate your sleep pattern, rest and herbal supplements that can help. after 90 days, we expect to see a dramatic shift in your mental, physical and medical state. It may take 6 to 12 months before you see a significant drop in the medications needed for daily disease management.
