Keto Adapted: Nutrient Rich and Healthy Lifestyle
Sunday, June 27; 3:45 - 5:00 p.m; Culinary Institute

Best-selling author, nutritionist and ketogenic diet specialist, Maria Emmerich, passionately believes that many ailments can be healed with proper nutrition. During this class Maria will reveal how to eat a healthy lifestyle as well as demonstrate one of her most popular keto adapted recipes for a flourless chocolate torte.  This recipe is not only a delicious example of a keto dessert but also demonstrates the many healthy elements of a ketogentic.  This torte is rich in magnesium, a mineral needed in every cell in the body.  

A ketogenic diet isn't something new that has been recently formulated; people have been on a ketogenic diet for virtually three million years in which our brains were nurtured and evolved. Now the human brain is not only shrinking, but brain atrophy is the norm as we age and get plagued with diseases such as dementia, Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. People mistakenly think that they need to eat less and exercise more to create a calorie deficit in order to lose weight. This is not how diet and exercise helps with weight loss. A well-formulated keto-adapted diet along with proper exercise builds muscle and muscle builds mitochondria. It is in the mitochondria where fat is oxidized so you can keep your cells and liver insulin sensitized. Weight loss and health is about healthy mitochondria and about controlling hormones and specifically insulin. This is not a diet, it is a lifestyle. By eating this way, you will begin to heal your cells and will keep evolving your body into the happy and healthy person you want to be.  Maria Emmerich is a nutritionist who specializes in the ketogenic diet and exercise physiology.
