The recent article in the Mountain Xpress posted on 4/26/19 Juice cleanses: miracle cure or passing fad included a quote from me (https://mountainx.com/living/juice-cleanses-miracle-cure-or-passing-fad/?fbclid=IwAR2BgzQIP2pLl5YCwVGUDu1RvsR87t47D-kwNDW1XOjV2RYSgLJKcWVBWG8). My feedback provided for the article was much broader with a lot more context, so I wanted to provide an opportunity to share my whole article. Here it is:

There’s a lot of hype surrounding the ketogenic diet lately, and people have been using it for everything from weight loss to diabetes. Here’s the low down on this popular diet.
What exactly is a “keto” diet?
A true ketogenic diet is one that is very high in fat, low in protein, and very low in carbohydrates. It is typically comprised of about 80% fat, 15% protein and 5% carbohydrate. Ketogenic diets typically restrict carbs to less than 50 grams of carbohydrate per day, although the exact amount of carb restriction needed to enter ketosis varies depending on the person. Most people will see results with carb restriction in the 20-50 gram range.

A quick internet search on how to get enough protein may lead you to a plethora of websites advertising exclusive supplements, bodybuilding, or the latest hot diet trend.
The reality is, everyone needs protein. It is one of three macronutrients, along with carbohydrates and fat, that the body requires to function optimally.
What does protein do for your body?

Protein helps the body through the healing process and is a building block for the body’s tissues, enzymes and hormones. It is a major component of your body’s hair, skin, nails and muscles. Protein also helps transport the body’s atoms and cells.
Autumn is a magical time of year – the days are crisp, leaves are crimson and gold, the smells of cider and cinnamon fill the air, and pumpkins and decorative corn stalks can be found around every corner. With that being said, fall is the perfect time to stock up on some yummy and nutritious staples.
Pumpkins: Few things say autumn more than pumpkins, but did you know that this fall favorite is also chock full of nutrients? Pumpkin is an excellent source of potassium and vitamin A, which are important nutrients for healthy hair, skin, and nails. Opt for sugar pie or baby bear pumpkins – they are smaller and sweeter, and better for baking and cooking. Make your own pumpkin puree and toss into baked goods such as pies, scones, or cookies. Try adding pumpkin to your favorite chili recipe,...
