Picture: iStockSource:Supplied Health Bank Co-founder and dietitian Robbie Clark said that the ketogenic diet “encourages the body to burn fat for energy instead of glucose”. Government service Health Direct says that the keto diet breaks down the fat into “ketone bodies” or “ketones” in a process called ketosis. The usual carbohydrate intake for those following a keto diet stems around eating 20g to 50g per day, which is the same as eating two slices of bread and a banana. Carbs cover about one-tenth of a person’s daily kilojoule intake in a keto diet, which is the process of keeping the body at a constant state of ketosis.

Video PlayerClose SEOUL, Dec. 9 (Xinhua) -- Foreign direct investment in South Korea topped 20 billion U.S. dollars for the fifth straight year through this year, the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy said Monday. As of Dec. 2, foreign direct investment in the country came in at 20.3 billion dollars, exceeding the 20 billion-dollar mark for five years in a row, the ministry data showed. The foreign investment declined in double figures in the first and second quarters on a yearly basis, before turning upward from the third quarter, the ministry said. The ministry noted that despite the difficult investment environment, caused by the global trade feud and the trade spat between South Korea and Japan, foreign investment in South Korea surpassed 20 billion dollars earlier than expected due to strong investment in the industrial parts, materials and equipment sector. The Seoul-Tokyo trade dispute was triggered by Japan's tightened control in July over its export to South Korea of … [Read more...] about Foreign direct investment in S.Korea tops 20 bln USD for 5 years

In the US, Thanksgiving is often described as a time of the year for the family to reconvene, fall out, reconcile and agree to meet again on December 25 to do it all over again. This week's summit to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) certainly felt similar. Ahead of the conference, clouds gathered as US President Donald Trump kept up his criticism of Germany in particular for being "delinquent" in not honoring its 2 percent of GDP for defense spending, French President Emmanuel Macron alleged the alliance was "brain dead" and Chancellor Angela Merkel insisted the organization was as strong and relevant as ever. In some ways it is puzzling that NATO is … [Read more...] about NATO’s 70th anniversary: An uneasy reunion

The article reflects the author's opinions and not necessarily the views of NDRC or CGTN. The annual UN climate change conference, so-called COP25, is taking place in Madrid from December 2 to 13, with the convergence of nearly 200 countries. Climate change is again taking a prominent place in the global and national public debates. However, the negotiation to reboot a global system for tackling climate change has been unnerved and stymied by US' withdrawal from the Paris Accord on Climate Change, which is already the largest emitter in per capita in the world. The US is starkly free-riding on the efforts of the rest of the world or taking advantage of them. How to protect the interests of signatories to the Paris Accord or prevent the Accord from being picked apart or the world from being tipped into fiery catastrophe? What about the 'net … [Read more...] about How to protect the interests of signatories to the Paris Accord?
As 2020 approaches, US tariffs on Chinese goods have reached levels not seen since the US Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act of 1930, which played a key role in exacerbating the Great Depression. A key complaint of US President Donald Trump is China's failure to respect intellectual property rights. Trump and his trade advisers regularly accuse China of stealing US inventions, designs and other forms of IP without compensation, and many media outlets repeat these allegations as a matter of course. There was a time when one could walk down a street in Vietnam, India or Mexico and easily find pirated foreign movies and music on DVDs and CDs. Now that everything is digital, pirating has become less visible to tourists, even though it is probably no less rampant than before. Still, IPR protection is weaker in developing countries than in advanced nations. The question, then, is whether China's IPR record is better or worse than what one would expect for its income level. For systematic data on such … [Read more...] about China doesn’t violate but protects IPR
