In BioDiet, educator, researcher and health consultant, Dr. David G. Harper, and journalist, Dale Drewery, have created the essential guide to taking control of your health and well being with a scientifically validated, well-formulated ketogenic diet.
Drawing on their professional and personal experience, along with the latest research in nutritional science, they explain in a simple and straightforward way, how the BioDiet can help you shed weight, keep it off, and significantly reduce your risk of chronic disease in the process. No hype or gimmicks: it’s what the science says.
Tonight on the Sunday Night Health Show, we started our BIo Diet (ketogenic journey). Dr. David G. Harper joined me to help you get started on a road to health in 2020.
You are what you eat. This journey will deal with inflammation quite often the source of chronic pain conditions.
I'll be starting on the BioDiet too because along with wonderful holiday time enjoying family, friends & food, I got two love handles!
