Many people call or come into our clinic asking us “is there a way to know is the keto diet right for me?” The answer is YES! There are tests we can run so YOU can learn which dietary lifestyle maybe best for YOU. This can be for weight loss success or just a healthier life all together which is a good thing!
One way to know if the keto diet is right for you is to run food allergy testing. We look at both immune pathways. IgE (immediate reactions) and IgG delayed food reactions. Both can tell you a lot about food and your body! For example, if you love eating nuts like cashews and pecans, but you are not losing weight, nuts overall may show up high for food allergies. It does happen.
We had one gal that wanted to lose weight, and she got an A++ for effort, but she was struggling with those last few pounds. She did eat a keto diet, and it had been beneficial to her. We agreed that food allergy testing had to be run to provide more direction and answers. Almonds showed up as a 3*** which is the highest level of toxicity for food allergies. She stopped eating almonds, and the weight came off and stayed off.
Another way to know if the keto diet is right for me is to run cardiometabolic testing to see the particle sizes of your cholesterol level. This test looks at insulin, leptin, A1C, omegas, large and small particle sizes, lipoproteins and more. You will find that in the vitamin section of our website store.
So, are you wondering about food allergies and IF the keto diet is right for me?
