CUSTOM KETO DIET
According to some “experts,” losing weight and
keeping it off is all about controlling the types of
food you eat.
They say particular foods are "fattening"

If an energy deficit of 250 calories a day will get
you lean, a 1,000-calorie deficit will give you the
results four times as fast, right?
Many people make this mistake, and I used to do
it too before I knew any better.
The truth is, severe calorie deficits screw up your
That's why almost all low-calorie dieters regain
the lost pounds when they stop the program...
plus, most often gain some more on top of that.
