This documentary helped us to understand the importance of the keto diet
2 June 2018 | by alexahopSee all my reviews

My husband had already tried the keto diet and lost 20 pounds in two months. But he was drifting off it and he stopped losing weight. So, we watched "The Magic Pill" together. We both got really jazzed about the diet. Long story short, now we're both on it.

As a note, the description of the diet in "The Magic Pill" is a description of a Paleo diet, rather than the keto diet. If you want to know the specifics of the keto diet, don't rely on this movie. Instead see Dr. Eric Berg's Youtube videos and also the brochure on his website about the keto diet. There are lots of other websites that also give the specifics of the keto diet. It's a pretty simple diet to follow and easy also. It's really a way of eating rather than a temporary diet.

Also, there are some great recipes for keto bread and keto desserts. I sweeten them with stevia. But you can also use erythritol or xylitol, which are considered safe artificial sweetenera. Keto bread and keto desserts make a long-term approach to keto eating possible for my husband and me.
