Susan Selasky Detroit Free Press Published 12:40 PM EST Nov 19, 2018 This Thanksgiving will be Jennifer Stewart’s third year following a ketogenic (keto for short) diet. And just as in previous years, she has a plan. For starters, she'll prepare a dish to pass that she can eat. At her first Thanksgiving after starting keto, Stewart made sure she ate a high-fat meal before going to her boyfriend’s “big Italian” Thanksgiving dinner. Doing so helped her avoid the many carbs that make up a traditional Thanksgiving meal. If you’re unfamiliar with a keto diet, here's the quick explanation: It’s extremely low in carbohydrates and high in fat.

Greg Woodcox, 58, begged his five friends to leave their belongings and flee the “Camp Fire” – a ferocious wildfire that has so far claimed more than 40 lives in northern California.

Two states approved ballot initiatives to limit or ban access to abortion, part of a wave of actions that could accelerate a Roe v. Wade challenge before the Supreme Court’s new conservative majority. On Tuesday, Alabama became the first state in the nation to enact what opponents call a “personhood clause” in its constitution, recognizing “the rights of unborn children, including the right to life.” That makes it possible for the state to ban abortion entirely if Roe v. Wade is overturned. The measure includes no exemptions for abortion in cases of rape, incest or when the life of the mother is at risk. While other states have enacted “right to life” and “personhood” language, none have gone as far as Alabama’s constitutional amendment.Story Continued Below West Virginians approved a measure stripping from the state constitution any abortion rights protections. It also cuts off Medicaid funding for abortions and sets a jail … [Read more...] about Here come the Roe v. Wade challenges
