Dr. Eric Berg Helps People Lose Weight and Transform Their Health Through Keto and Intermittent Fasting
The Health & Wellness Center, Inc., the practice owned by Dr. Eric Berg in Alexandria, VA, is happy to announce that Dr. Berg, who is a health educator and chiropractor, and an expert in Healthy Keto™ and intermittent fasting, has been helping people lose weight and transform their health for the better. He has spent 29 years in Alexandria as a full-time practitioner, helping more than 40,000 patients with their weight loss and other health issues by using natural, nutritional approaches. Among his clients were medical doctors, high-level executives of prominent corporations, senior officials in the U.S. Government, professors, engineers, scientists, and other clients from all walks of life.
Dr. Berg offers revolutionary principles that may shock some people. For instance in his book, “The 7 Principles of Fat Burning: Lose the weight. Keep it off,” he says, “You have no doubt heard that you should lose weight so you can be healthier because obesity is a health risk causing heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and stroke. Right? People have been pushing the idea that fat directly causes these other problems. This is not true! I found it is just the opposite. You need to be healthy first before you can actually lose weight. You are fat because some area of your body is unhealthy. In other words, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, stroke, and obesity are all the result (symptoms) of the same thing — an unhealthy body. Somehow, someone has assigned obesity as a primary cause or a disease, when in reality it is an effect or result of something else.”
Dr. Berg provides a guide on keto for beginners, allowing people to discover what is Healthy Ketosis™. In contrast to conventional methods of the keto diet, Healthy Ketosis™ makes use of high quality ingredients that are full of nutrients to support the person’s health. The ketogenic diet is based on the principle that the body will use ketones rather than sugar from carbohydrates such as grains, pasta, or sugary foods. Ketones are formed when the body starts to burn stored or dietary fat for fuel rather than carbohydrates. It turns out that ketones are really very efficient sources of fuel for the human body.
In the conventional American diet, the body is regularly transforming sugar from carbs into energy. In contrast, when the shift is made to a high-fat diet with limited carbs, the body begins to produce ketones for energy. The result is the body will be automatically burning fat. It must be clarified that the previous belief that the body needs carbohydrates for energy, or that the brain can only function on glucose, is a myth. This has been proven by the countless healthy people on low-carbohydrate or low-sugar diets. With the keto diet, the body runs on other sources of fuel, such as fatty acids and the ketones that are created when fat is burned. While the body may require a tiny amount of glucose to function, it can produce all the glucose that it requires internally from protein or fat.
The carbs that people need are vegetables, but only the vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, and antioxidants that they can provide. Carbs, especially refined carbs, can actually harm the body by the depleting the nutrients. They also transform into fat and hamper fat burning.
Dr. Eric Berg earned his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree at the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa in 1988. He is a board-certified chiropractor licensed to practice in three states. In his earlier years, Dr. Berg had finished two years of undergraduate pre-med studies at University of Wisconsin Parkside and he was also trained as an X-ray technician in the Army Reserves. He is the host of an annual Keto Health Summit in Washington, D.C., where he shares his expert knowledge. The summit also features speakers such as Thomas DeLauer, Dr. Eric Westman, and Dr. Mercola. He has also published several books, including “The 7 Principles of Fat Burning and The Healthy Keto Plan.”
