Health authorities are warning that keto foods and snacks can be a lifesaver for people struggling to lose weight.
They are also making it easy to make keto-friendly recipes and snacks, which can also be used to help people manage chronic conditions like diabetes and heart disease.
“We’re really seeing a lot of research and research that suggests keto eating and drinking can help people who are struggling with weight loss and can also help them manage chronic illnesses,” says Lisa Sperling, executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.
“We really encourage people to think of keto as a healthy way to eat.”
Health Canada says people with chronic conditions are at an increased risk of developing heart disease, stroke, diabetes and other serious conditions as a result of poor diet and lack of exercise.
The Canadian Diabetes Association says that about 20 per cent of Canadian adults and one in six adults over the age of 65 are currently diagnosed with diabetes.
The association is also warning people not to limit their keto options, including foods such as pancakes, brownies, cookies and waffles, which contain high amounts of sugar.
Keto is a food that has been popular in Western cultures since the ancient Greeks.
The name comes from the Greek ketos meaning “liver” and pomegranate meaning “sweet.”
It was also the first food to be widely consumed in the West.
The first commercially produced foods in the United States, which had its own unique katas and katanas, were made from wheat flour, barley and wheat germ.
The katananas were first introduced to the United Kingdom in the 1840s and were widely popular at the time.
The U.S. government says the most common reason people go on to develop diabetes was a diet high in sugar, fat and saturated fat.
The American Diabetes Association has warned that there is no safe level of intake of sugar in the diet.
The association also says there is a link between increased risk for developing Type 2 diabetes and a lack of regular exercise.
A 2014 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that those who regularly ate more than 200 grams of refined carbohydrates daily had a 37 per cent increased risk.
The group of more than 2,000 people who followed up for 18 months found that they were able to control their blood sugar levels in the study by adding 150 grams of carbohydrate per day to their diet.
A 2016 study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association looked at the impact of a diet rich in refined carbohydrates, sugar, and fats on people with type 2 diabetes.
It found that people who consumed more than 300 grams of carbohydrates per day were three times more likely to develop type 2 than those who consumed less than 30 grams per day.
Health Canada recommends that people limit their consumption of foods with added sugar or processed carbohydrates, including white bread, white rice and white rice flour.
