The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted into glucose, which is then transported around the body and is particularly important in fueling brain-function. However, if there is little carbohydrate in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source.

    Thinking About Vaping

    I know you must be wondering what vaping is. Well, it’s an alternative to smoking real cigarettes, they are e-cigarettes. They do have nicotine, but no tar, which is what causes cancer.

I had to join a forum to get more info, it’s was impossible to just bounce around from website to website, and not get real feedback, the forum is the…
