The MANY Benefits of Ketosis (Aside From Weight Loss!)

Sometimes, no matter what our efforts are, we just don't lose weight. Maybe we keep losing inches & our clothing fits looser, but maybe we see no change for a bit.
What then? Do we quit?

Do we say to ourselves, "I'm not losing any fat, so why not have that cupcake?"
There are so many reasons to continue eating in a Low Fat High Carb way. At the last session, we went over the many, many reasons to keep eating LCHF, even if the scale doesn't budge.

Knowing all the many reasons to keep EATING WELL helps us to stay strong and keep heading toward BEING WELL.
And after all, that's what we truly want...
a life lived WELL.
