CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — It’s a diet that has become popular in society and it’s gaining popularity in the Corpus Christi community.

The ketogenic diet, or keto, has helped many people change their lives completely.

Margie Castillo, owner of PHAT Keto Company, the only keto eatery in town, says keto has completely changed her life.

Since starting the keto diet a year and a half ago, Castillo says she has lost the weight and overall feels much better.

She says a large base of her clientele are diabetic and gluten-sensitive.

Castillo has noticed a lot of people are still unsure about keto and how it will effect someone.

"And I'm not a doctor, I'm not a dietitian, or a nutritionist, I just know what I know and what has worked for me. But if I bring a professional in and they speak, not on my behalf but just keto and people want to learn, that's what that's about," Castillo said.

To help spread the knowledge of keto, Castillo decided to hold a Keto Lunch and Learn at the PHAT Keto Company, this Saturday January 11th at 1:15 p.m.

The speaker will be Dr. Lloyd Stegemann. Topics will include, basics of keto, counting macros and reading nutrition labels, recipes, benefits and risks.
