Why a Pharmacist is Essential When Adapting to a Ketogenic Lifestyle
So, you made an important decision. You have decided to make a change. You have heard about the “keto diet” and you want to give it a try… or maybe you want to try the “keto diet” again.
You are probably asking, “Where do I start?” Or maybe you’re thinking, “I can do this! I’ll just wing-it!”—after all, Google is free and there are plenty of “keto” products in the store—this will be easy… right?
Not so fast.
Getting your body into ketosis (fat-burning mode) can be challenging, especially if you are taking medications. Being in ketosis will lower your insulin level and this could become dangerous if you are taking medications for diabetes and/or high blood pressure.
This is where I come in. Being a registered pharmacist in Arizona and a Certified Ketogenic Nutrition Specialist, I understand how a ketogenic lifestyle can affect your medications. Your safety is my number one priority, and I will make medication recommendations to your healthcare provider to help you adapt to a ketogenic lifestyle SAFELY. If you are not taking medications, excellent! I can still help you properly implement a ketogenic lifestyle by focusing on eating REAL FOODS found in the grocery store (while avoiding expensive, unsustainable “keto” products).
I would love to meet with you and discuss how I can help you reach your goals. Please feel free to contact me at [email protected] and book a free consult!
