This question comes from a recent blog post that introduces my experimentation into a ketogenic diet. I referenced consumption of bacon, a common processed meat product.
As a nutritionist, I spend a lot of time talking about food. I educate others on topics such as the health benefits of various foods, appropriate portion size for a given food, and how to look for healthy foods.

Today I’m starting a series of posts on my favorite fat sources- for cooking, health benefits, and taste. The first is coconut oil. Stay tuned for more!
While not the majority, there are people who struggle to get enough energy and nutrients in their diet. Athletes involved in very heavy training loads, those recovering from illness and medical conditions, and the elderly come to mind.
