January 26, 2019

Natural Grocers is starting a multi-week program about a keto diet today from 4:30-6PM. Eating a ketogenic diet may be one of the greatest nutritional breakthroughs of our time. Going keto is all the rage, but the diet is laden with conflicting ideas, disastrous oversimplification, and misinformation. Well dive into this trend to understand the what, why, and how to succeed with ketogenic eating. The schedule is as follows:

Feb 2 (Sat 4:30-6) – Keto Reset: Week 2 – Fire Up Your Metabolism
Feb 8 (Fri, 4-5:30) – Keto Reset: Week 3 – Living a Keto-Friendly Lifestyle
Feb 16 (Sat, 4-5:30) – Keto Reset: Week 4 – Launch into Keto!
Feb 23 (Sat, 4-5:30) – Keto Reset: Week 5 – Surefire Keto Hacks
