at cleaneating.com Clean Eating ACADEMY Lose Weight with Keto Here’s a stunning fact: The ketogenic (aka keto) diet may burn 10 times more fat than the standard American diet. That’s according to newly published research on the popular low-carb eating plan. What makes the keto diet unique? It’s a high-fat, low-carb diet that allows a moderate amount of protein. The idea is by keeping carbs low, forcing your body to produce more ketones than it normally would, you’ll reduce your body’s supply of carbohydrates, and it will be forced to burn fat to create more ketones and then use those ketones as a source of fuel. Best-selling author Maria Emmerich is a wellness expert in nutrition and exercise physiology as well as the founder of keto-adapted.com. She is also the author of several cookbooks and three…

Q/ What are the benefits of green cookware? – JONATHAN ROY, COLUMBUS, OH A/ The popularity of green cookware is growing for both health and environmental reasons. The original Teflon coating on nonstick pots and pans was made of chemicals called polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). When traditional Teflon cookware is heated on high, PTFE breaks down and converts to PFOA, a possible carcinogen. PFOA has been linked to cancer, thyroid disease, infertility and a weakened immune system. Although PFOA was voluntarily phased out of cookware as of 2015, new nonstick pots and pans can still contain PTFE. (The PTFE cookware of the future has to be reformulated using polymers that won’t break down or contain any PFOA.) Until more research is done on the reformulations, the safest choice is to…

3 ways with freezer fudge

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Swirl Freezer Fudge HEALTH BENEFIT: Both the peanut butter and almond butter in this recipe are great sources of monounsaturated fat, a type of good fat that supports heart health.
