  • What is the Ketogenic diet (keto diet)

    The keto diet is really low in carbs, turning your body into a mean lean fat burning machine. There are benefits, but also some side effects.

  • Myths about diets

    As a dietitian, I meet a lot of patients who come out with these crazy myths about diets. Everybody who can read and has internet connection is a doctor today. Some of them argue with me, based on things they read on some website. Now let's bust some myths about diets, proven by science, not made up by grandma.

    Basically, whole carbohydrates contain natural fibers (unprocessed) and refined carbohydrates were...

  • Healthy snacks for kids

    There are few "REAL" healthy snacks for kids, and I will name the ones I know, but I will also name some that are less unhealthy than "REGULAR" snacks.

    For some reason, I see many articles about this subject (probably a very popular keyword and an opportunity for some to get some clicks), but most of the recipes contain sugar, and you know how I feel about sugar, right?

    I see "healthy" as unprocessed, simple, packed with nutrients food that can release the energy gradually. There's a...

  • Sugar: The main ingredient for obesity

    Added sugar is the worst ingredient in the world. Half glucose/half fructose, sugar will be your enemy, especially if you are obese. Fructose is metabolized by the liver, regardless of the amount you ingest. The problem is, overloading the liver with sugar will force it to transform it into fat. Almost all of it. So every time you eat food that has added sugar, you "stick" some fat on your belly.  The belly is the least of your problems, sugar adding fat to the liver itself, causing...
