ketogenic nutrition

It was only when I reached back to my academic roots in medical biochemistry and decided that a ketogenic nutritional program and lifestyle was the physiological way to reach optimal body weight and composition that I finally got to my target weight with BMI ( Body Mass Index) at the low end of the normal range. 

One of several tools that I use to keep me on track is the wireless Fitbit Aria Scale. This scale uses BIA (Bioelectrical impedance analysis) to measure % body fat. Each morning I step on the scale  and my weight, %fat and calculated BMI is sent to my FitBit app.

What do you do when you are committed to a ketogenic health and weight-loss program and you are entertaining friends for dinner? In my close circle of friends, everyone has a different take on food. Some have, to a greater or lesser extent, embraced the low carb or keto approach to nutrition. Others avoid fats and eggs believing that this will lower their cholesterol levels. There are no vegans in our group but some favour vegetarian meals.
