Episode 10: What the H is a ketogenic diet?

I realize I’ve spent a good deal of time talking about ketosis/ketogenic diets on this show, without actually specifying what keto is…

So, here, in 22 minutes of awkward rambling, are the basics, all nicely laid out. We (I) talk about ketosis, glycogenesis, lipogenesis, gluconeogenesis, beta-oxidation and more! The “more” is the actual nuances of how your metabolism works… fun stuff.
