common sense will tell you that you have to burn them.” Doing
anything outside your norm will do the trick however,

Nicole’s success won her family over. They all are keto-
Dr. Courtney believes the change is an absolute necessity
“The reason this program works so well is that we have
now hit a point in our evolution where carbohydrates and
the inability of a human being to properly metabolize them
has led to obesity as a number one issue,” the doctor said.
“So, it makes sense in this new evolutionary phase we’re in, if
we’re going to compensate for that, we’ve got to change our
diet – even just to be healthy. If there are weight issues, it’s
absurd to think that you can lose weight without dealing with
the ketogenic issue. You’ve got to remove carbohydrates and
bring in the proteins and the fats and let the body operate in
the way it used to be able to, but it can’t really do anymore.

The diet is good for everyone, Nicole said. “I have just
as many seniors as I do middle-aged people doing it. People
with diabetes or high blood pressure need to be careful because
of their medications. Dr Courtney keeps a close watch
on their level. But some of the people in the program have
been able to eliminate medications. They’re giving people
pills for something that can be controlled with diet.”
