Should you be doing keto
longer-term or shorter-term or in a cycle? How long should you be
doing it? I actually won’t be able to answer this question for you,

ketosis is we want to reset our blood sugar response and reset our
in ketosis will lower our current inflammatory markers and help us
build a better inflammatory response.
in ketosis also helps us rebuild, renew and create new mitochondria
so that we have that high energy that we’re looking as well have
better bodily functions.
