It’s the beginning of January, which means one thing: we get seriously seduced by diets and the hope that THIS is the year we’ll finally fix our food/weight/body issues. Everywhere we look, people are raving about about the new program that has worked for them. “You should try the Keto diet!” Your friend excitedly tells you. “I’ve lost 20 pounds and  feel amazing.” You mutter something under your breath and try to end the conversation as quickly as possible. You walk away wondering if you should jump on the bandwagon… After all, if you struggle with your weight, it seems
