The truth is that keto is a LOT HARDER than they make it sound like. To start out, you have to “calculate the macros” - which involves counting and doing rocket-science-level math operations with calories, carbs, proteins, and fats. And you need to write it all down or use confusing apps.

quick buck - and every passing day, they are dumping upon us all sorts of dubious
products and rehashed courses by the dozen.
Fortunately for our collective wallets, this newfound gold rush is about to come
crumbling down like a dry oatmeal cookie. Because...
