Spend more of your valuable time with paying clients, rather than researching, writing, and marketing your content.
This researched and referenced 2,507-word article was created to build your expertise and authority by helping you:
  • Save 12 hours of work (that’s how long it took me to put it together from scratch to final, amazing product—yes, it’s really good!). Spend less time on content creation and more time finding and working with clients!
  • Earn expert status and build trust with your well-researched, professionally written and edited post because it’s fully backed up with references and is customizable to your voice and brand. Plus, it’s ghostwritten so YOU are the author!
  • Gain high-quality traffic when you share this with your email subscribers and social media followers.
  • Save $2,300 (that’s how much I would charge you if you wanted me to create this epic post just for you).
  • Stand out online because not only is this article customizable, but it’s for an exclusive group only. The sales are automatically capped at a maximum of 73 healthcare professionals. This means that, after the 73rd one is sold, no one else can ever buy this. Why does this matter? In today’s online world, epic, unique content is key. And, even though you can fully customize it, you still don’t want hundreds of other health and wellness professionals to have it. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2018 there were 70,900 dietitians and nutritionists in the U.S. alone! That means that just one nutrition pro out of about 1,000 will be able to use this article! Not to mention the 50,300 chiropractors, 356,900 fitness trainers, etc. who could also benefit from publishing this article on the many ways to “go keto” and who should and shouldn’t (but they won’t).

Is Keto Good for Athletes?

The keto health craze is here!

And if you’re wondering whether you should try it or not (especially if you’re an athlete), you need to read this!

The idea behind the diet’s popularity is that it can literally train your body to burn fat as fuel. This means your metabolism actually changes. You stop burning carbohydrates (your body’s preferred fuel), and start burning fat (and ketones) as fuel.

You become “fat adapted.”

How is this possible? What are the risks and benefits? And how does this apply to athletes?

I hash it all out in this post.

NOTE: Before we go on, know that the whole topic of ketosis is a hotbed of scientific research now. More studies are being published regularly, so keep on the lookout for new information.

Subsections of the article:

  • Metabolism 101 – Carbohydrates vs. Fats (and Ketones)
  • How to get into ketosis
  • The first way to “Go Keto” – The Classic Ketogenic Diet
  • The second way to “Go Keto” – Modified Ketogenic Diets
  • Who should avoid ketogenic diets?
  • The third way to “Go Keto” – Keto supplementation
  • Ketogenic diets for athletes
  • Ketogenic supplements for athletes
