What The Keto Diet Does To Your Gut
Hello, my friend. I'm Dr. Chad Walding with NativePath Nutrition.
Today, I want to talk about gut health as it relates to the ketogenic diet.
Now, this is really important because, as you might remember, a ketogenic diet is a high fat, moderate protein, low carbohydrate diet. It's more protein and fat than people are used to taking in.
What I'm noticing, and this is having been seeing thousands and thousands of people go through ketogenic diet programs, is that they have really poor gut health and they can't, their body, their stomach can't process and break down that much protein and that much fat.
The main reason is because they're coming from a context of eating foods that are very irritating to the gut.
The key is moving towards more whole real foods, but also focusing on improving gut health.
One simple, easy way to do that is to start taking a good quality probiotic.
What I highly recommend is our NativePath Probiotic.
