ME: Keto Diet ....
MOM AND NUTRITIONIST
Good morning, I woke up today with a thought: parenting is the hardest, yet most natural, job in the world.
A parent’s job is to love their children by educating them.
Education in all its aspects, including food.
Ketogenic Diet: all the advantages
The ketogenic diet has a centuries–old history. It was developed in the ‘20s of the twentieth century to control epileptic seizures and, even today, in patients, often children, drug–resistant, this diet is a viable option for the control of this disease. But there are also many who undertake it especially for slimming purposes. The results are visible already after a week and this is an important stimulus to the motivation of the patient.
“The ketogenic diet is built on the basis of the body weight that you want to achieve. Calculating a protein intake of about 1.21.5 grams per kilogram of desirable weight. In the first week you get to lose even 23 kilos, but it’s mostly body fluids, and then you continue to drop weight with an average of 1 kilogram per week“. At the base of the ketogenic diet there is a chemical reaction, the beta oxidation of fatty acids, which occurs within our body.
“It must first be made clear that there are some organs and tissues, such as the brain, red blood cells and myocardium, for which sugars are the only energy source. For example, the brain needs about 120 grams of glucose per day. And in ketogenics, the total amount of carbohydrates allowed is only 30 grams. When carbohydrates are so low, the alternative metabolism comes into play and starts the beta–oxidation of fatty acids: dietary or storage fats are processed and from this reaction ketone bodies are obtained, the new nutrient, instead of glucose, for the body, in particular for red blood cells, myocardium and brain“. This type of process, however, is not immediate: “The body before going into ketosis, that is, before starting the production of ketone bodies, needs at least three days of carbohydrate deprivation“.

HYPERTENSION AND NUTRITION
Generally, hypertension is a multifactorial disease and is defined as "primary" when it is not possible to identify a precise cause.
Only a small percentage (about 5%), which is defined “secondary”, instead depends on hereditary diseases and not, which may affect the heart, vessels, kidneys, adrenals, or the use of drugs such as amphetamines, contraceptives, painkillers, etc. …
The “primary” hypertension often has a genetic cause, in fact the presence of direct family members with hypertension can increase the risk of occurrence.
Obviously, with advancing age, the risk of this disease increases because the arterial vessels stiffen.
