In collaboration with the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, The Sacred Space Miami, is proud to kick-off the Osher Center of Integrative Medicine Speaker Series with Dr. Will Cole.
During this talk, Dr. Will Cole will give his expert experience and advice for going—and staying—Ketotarian, including managing macronutrients, balancing electrolytes, and finding your carb sweet spot. This is a game-changer for anyone who wants to tame inflammation and achieve peak physical and mental performance.
With ketogenic diets becoming popular among the general public and health professionals alike, Dr. Will Cole will be talking extensively on how to utilize the ketogenic diet to kick-start your body's metabolism, so that it burns fat, instead of sugar, as its primary fuel. Most ketogenic plans are meat and dairy heavy, creating a host of problems, especially for those who prefer plants at the center of the plate. While most ketogenic diet diets are laced with antibiotics and hormones packed into the conventional foods, Ketotarian gets all the fat-burning benefits without the harmful additives.
The ketogenic diet was first developed for individuals suffering from seizures and has been shown to reduce inflammation and lower the risk of many chronic health problems including Alzheimer's and some cancers. Adding a plant-based twist, makes this diet optimal by making healthy choices that help achieve weight loss, renewed health, robust energy, and better brain function.
