Florida Winters, dress for it.

I'm a firm believer that if you're going to live in Florida, you embrace the Summer Heat and bitch about the cold Winters. If you see some one in shorts and a t-shirt, say Buur its cold and smile.

If you're going to bitch about it being hot and dress like you're on summer vacation in the winter you need to move. There's some very nice property in Wisconsin. My daughter actually lives there.

The only way you're ever going to be able to enjoy the Florida Summers, is to dress and act like it's winter when it's even only a little cold, and always when your indoors in AC.

Remember 70 is cold, put on some sweatpants and shut up even if your only pretending your cold..

If you are thinking about moving to Florida, the winter is the best time to arrive if you are not yet ready for the heat. Just remember in the summer 110 is normal so dress warm so you can start getting used to the heat.

Same thing if your planning a summer visit to Florida, a few months before …

The Ketogenic Diet: A Detailed Beginner's Guide to Keto

Written by Rudy Mawer, MSc, CISSN on July 30, 2018

The ketogenic diet (or keto diet, for short) is a low-carb, high-fat diet that offers many health benefits.

In fact, over 20 studies show that this type of diet can help you lose weight and improve your health

Ketogenic diets may even have benefits against diabetes, cancer, epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease

Here is a detailed beginner's guide to the keto diet.
What Is a Ketogenic Diet? The ketogenic diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares many similarities with the Atkins and low-carb diets.

It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat. This reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.

When this happens, your body becomes incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy. It also turns fat into ketones in the liver, which can supply energy for the brain

Ketogenic diets can cause massive reductions in blood sugar and insulin levels. This, along with the increa…

Balancing Carbs, Protein, and Fat

Three nutrients — carbohydrate, protein, and fat — contain calories that your body uses for energy. Here's how to balance these nutrients in a healthy diet.

Carbohydrates

Carbohydrate has 4 calories per gram. About 50 to 60 percent of your total daily calories should come from carbohydrate.

Carbohydrate contains the most glucose and gives the quickest form of energy. Your body changes 100 percent of carbohydrate into glucose.

Besides giving your body energy that it uses right away, your body can store carbohydrate in your liver. Your liver stores extra carbohydrate as glycogen and releases it later, when your body needs it. However, there's a limit to the amount of glycogen your liver can store. Once your liver has reached that limit, your body turns the extra carbohydrate into fat.

There are two types of carbohydrate: healthy and not-so-healthy.

Healthy carbs: Also called complex or slower-acting carbs. Includes multigrain bread, brown rice, lentils, and beans. This type of ca…
