So much attention has been placed upon the ketogenic diet in Sunrise, and recent interest has spurred research specialists to more critically evaluate this diet regimen. One has to wonder if this is just another fad that will fade like many have over the years: “stop the insanity” no fat fad, Atkins diet, and the Zone diet.


These diets were all heralded at their time as the one approach to take for health or proper body composition. It seems like we are always looking for something new, or different, and sure enough, something new comes along. The Keto approach is not new since it originated around the beginning of the last century for seizure patients.

People have many options for food intake. If we had as many options for fuel intake for our cars I believe our cars would suffer from the same malady that most of our population suffers from, namely, too much or too little nutrient content with confusion on when to eat or even how to eat. When your gas tank is empty or close to empty there is little confusion.

So what gets in the way to properly fueling our systems? There are too many options, opinions, experts, and marketers presenting their respective interests cluttering the field with certain uncertainties creating greater stress in an already anxious population.

How do we wend our way through this maze of confusion without adopting a food fad strategy that will soon be just another closeted course of action? Well… let’s go back to basics; time to consult a health care professional trained in clinical nutrition who will structure a program tailored to your individual needs with an emphasis on your health and well being.

If you are experiencing uncertainty, or failed results, please feel free to contact our office for a consultation, and see if we are the right fit for you.

Yours in Health,

Dr. James P. Valentine
