Dr. Sleiman and the birth of Kenu Kitchen
When I turned 30, I noticed that my metabolism had slowed down and I started to gain significant weight. I had worked at Italian restaurants since I was 18 and continued to do so during medical school to help pay the tuition. This was both a blessing and a curse as I learned to cook many incredible pasta dishes and became the most beloved medical student for hosting many delicious meals. I became a carbohydrate addict, and it later became clear that this was the biggest culprit leading to my weight gain.
Despite spending hours in the gym, I wasn’t even able to control my weight and only saw my body get fatter. Every attempt to lose weight was unsuccessful, as I would quickly lose weight on the numerous diets I tried, but would more quickly regain the weight.
It wasn’t until the last year of medical school in 2000, when I was introduced to the Atkins Diet. At the time, I acquiesced to its science and followed the diet, without doing my own research. The Atkins Diet helped me lose weight but that came at a great cost where I started to experience constipation, bad breath, boring meals, and an overall sense of ill health.
I was first drawn to the Ketogenic Diet after reading “The Ketogenic Diet” by Jimmy Moore and Maria Emerich. I was astonished by the science behind the ketogenic diet and knew from that point on that it was the diet that was most appropriate for human beings. Since 2005 and as a specialist in Internal Medicine and Obesity Medicine, I have treated thousands of patients and worked with them at my seven weight loss clinics throughout Texas. I have employed numerous diets and weight loss techniques on my patients, including Atkins, South Beach, Mediterranean, and calorie restriction diets. It is abundantly clear to me, after nearly two decades working with patients who seek weight loss, that the ketogenic diet is the ideal diet for weight loss, weight maintenance, and overall metabolic health.
One of the great challenges that I saw with my patients was the desire to eat with their hands. As my compliant and enthusiastic patients incorporated the ketogenic diet as a lifestyle, they struggled to find breads or tortillas that were tasty and ketogenic. As a Texan, I knew that I had to find a ketogenic tortilla to feed my Tex-Mex cravings. The products at grocery shelves were often falsely advertised as ketogenic but always took me out of ketosis. The keto or low carb specialty breads and tortillas were keto but lacked the proper taste and consistency that we all expect from high quality food products. As I saw my patients struggle and as I, myself yearned for a tasty ketogenic tortilla that I could wrap around my delicious foods, I decided to combine my cooking expertise with my medical knowledge to create the perfect ketogenic tortilla. That’s how Ketogenic Nutrition Tortillas were born!
