What is the keto diet — and is it right for you? The eating philosophy is getting a lot of buzz, but it may not be right for everyone. The ketogenic diet. The ketogenic diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares many similarities with the Atkins and low-carb diets. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it.

The keto diet emphasizes weight loss through fat-burning. The goal is to quickly lose weight and ultimately feel fuller with fewer cravings, while boosting your mood, mental focus and energy. A Ketogenic diet (keto) is a diet wherein participants eat a diet rich in fats and proteins, while either completely removing or extensively reducing carbohydrates (carbs). In an average diet, the body relies on the breakdown of sugars (glucose) from.

Keto and low-carb diets are full of above ground vegetables, full-fat dairy, eggs, meat, fish, cheese, butter, and more. Any diet can be boring and monotonous, and only you can decide whether you prefer the recommended foods for a low-calorie, reduced-fat diet or a. The ketogenic diet is all about eating the right foods in the right proportions. When you get it right, it’ll trigger your body to start burning stored fat. The ketogenic diet gets headlines because celebs like Kim Kardashian West and LeBron James have championed it for weight loss.

But what exactly is it, and does the science support the hype?The keto diet is a high fat, moderate protein, and low carbohydrate diet. People following it should aim to consume under 50 g of total carbs each day.

Meals tend to consist primarily of animal. Whether you need a side dish, light lunch or mid-day snack before you try other keto recipes, a cup of soup is a delicious option. These tasty soups are high in protein but low in carbs, so you’ll stay satisfied long after you’ve slurped down the last drop. These slurp-worthy soups are all keto!A ketogenic diet may help you lose more weight in the first 3 to 6 months than some other diets.

This may be because it takes more calories to change fat into energy than it. About 20%-30% of your diet is protein, either lean (like chicken breast) or fatty (like bacon). You’re supposed to strictly limit carbs, even those that are typically considered healthy, such as.

List of related literature:

For me, keto isn’t just about restricting your diet and losing weight; it’s about turning your body into an optimally functioning machine so that you feel satiated, love what you’re eating, lose weight, and gain all kinds of energy and mental clarity.

To briefly sum it up, advanced ketosis inhibits fat loss and increases insulin levels, and thus the ketogenic diet’s quest of reaching ketosis clearly fails to induce fat loss.

  • Here’s a thought: Take 200 of her Type 2 patients and put them in a study. Keep 100 of them on the diet Messer recommends. Put the other 100 on a Keto diet with no more than 20 total carbs per day. At the end of the year see how many in each group has reversed their Type 2 diabetes. The truth is dozens of patients in the Keto group will have lost a ton of weight and no longer have Type 2 diabetes nor need her services. There’s your proof. I know from my own personal experience.

  • Researchers initially developed and continue to recommend the diet for children with epilepsy. However, some reviews maintain that it might also benefit some people with diabetes. Some research has suggested that following a ketogenic diet might: reduce the risk of diabetes in people who do not yet have it.Mar 29, 2019

  • I can’t give up my carbs how would I get enough fiber? Intermittent fasting is working well for me I think its the best approach since it doesn’t slow down your metabolism like standard calorie restriction would.

  • You need to learn the difference between ketosis and ketoacidosis. They are not the same thing at all. Ketoacidosis is a complication of primarily type 1 diabetes and it can kill. Ketosis is a natural state that everyone enters from time to time and is the body using fat stores.

  • She’s delusional, she just called The Ketogenic Diet and Intermittent Fasting as a fad diet, WTF? She just said she wouldn’t mind if a diabetic would go to McDonald’s, She just said that a Diabetic Type 1 shouldn’t go on Keto which is fucking ludicrous. If you are a type 1 diabetic, you receive insulin shots because your pancreas doesn’t produce insulin, in Ketoacidosis, your blood sugar goes up to 300, on Keto it goes to 60 or 80 or something low, Insulin pushes the blood sugar down, so why wouldn’t you want to go on a diet that lowers your blood sugar, which is Keto, the only way you can get Ketoacidosis for a diabetic type 1 is if they don’t take in their insulin shots, plus if they go on Keto, they’re blood sugars go down so their need for insulin is less, thus less insulin shots every day, also she says she is afraid of people getting low blood sugars while Intermittent Fasting? WTF? The reason your blood sugars go down is because you spiked them, and insulin pushed it down, when you go on Keto and IF, your blood sugars normalize and are stable, this woman is delusional

  • Thank you for voicing concerns about the keto diet and the super restrictive diets. I have known a couple of people who were hospitalized for metabolic syndrome after being on the keto diet. Part of the reason I created my channel was to let people know that there are healthier ways to achieve a low calorie diet than by being on a super restrictive diet!

  • The ketogenic diet has amazing benefits especially when it’s plant based which is why I wrote the book The Raw Ketogenic Diet. It’s the best way to burn fat.

  • JUST a? i went for blood work My dr. said my TH is high 85
    taking another blood test to find out where its’ coming from could be my thyroids should i take meds ALSOi am 54 going through Menopause….can this make my TH HIGH?

  • KatieI have watched you since I was in high school and you started on Today. I adore and love you! Here’s my question, women over time and how we adapt? I saw that your daughter is getting married. Would you talk with a number of women about life experiences with career, marriage, children, and so forth. From all ages and demographics about how they make it work. I’m 44 now, and will celebrate my 20th wedding anniversary with my husband in May, and we have 3 beautiful children. But, I’m struggling. How do we transition in life? My husband and I sadly lost all our parents by the time we were 41. The kids are growing up so fast and will soon leave the nest. Do you have words of wisdom and advice? Thank you! Beth from Oregon. ❤️❤️❤️

  • Three years Keto, husbands type 2 diabetes gone. We both now have perfect blood panels! 64 and 59 yrs old, will never eat any other way!

  • I love this lifestyle. I have been living a Keto lifestyle since June last year and learning something new each day. It has worked. I did lose inches and weight. Dr. Josh is amazing i make his coffee with the turmeric delicious.

  • I love �� Dr Axe and Dr Oz together The only thing about Keto is that it’s so hard to stick to when out take a look at our video ��
    “food addiction caused my OBESITY”
    as Marzi on our channel Jodielee and Marzi is obese and trying the keto diet to see if it works!!

    We hope it controls and curbs her hunger whilst burning fat she only just started her weight loss journey and she has sooooooo much weight to lose but we are going to see if she can lose weight and RESET her body and burn fat fast on keto!!! Love Jodielee and Marzi

    I’ve been watching Dr Axe for years x

  • Great video and that’s exactly right. The ketogenic diet works really well because itowers insulin in the body which creates a fat burning environment. It’s worked for me. I’m down 70 pounds so far ��

  • Yes let’s bring Chiropractors (Dr. Axe) as nutrition specialists to scam people. Why not bring a cardiovascular surgeon like Dr. Kim A. Williams, head of the American College of Cardiology to the show. But wait Oprah will not allow it. Too much money so let’s keep bringing chiropractors who can’t even write a medical prescription to talk about people’s nutrition and disease prevention.


  • When you say it was used to control blood sugar in diabetics before insulin is an example of modern medicine hurting over helping.

  • The ketogenic diet consists of an eating pattern that’s high in fat, moderate in protein and low in carbohydrates. It’s typically rich in foods like eggs, meats, nuts, butters, cheeses, seeds, oils and few low-carb green vegetables.

  • Have been keto for 6 mths. Daily carbs is 50g, but i do take loads of protein to build muscle. 1.2g for every pound body mass, so i take 200grams per day. Gaining muscle and losing fat overall, best fitness of my life. I will be 40 soon, and also looking younger.

  • Hey! I watched a couple of your videos I was curious I’ve been full blown keto for about a year now. Your clearly very fit so there’s gotta be some merit to your program. I’m 27 and in november last year to now October I started healthy Keto + intermittent fasting, so I try to hit 20 carbs or less a day but I eat a lot of leafy green vegetables broccoli etc. The only nuts I eat are macadamia nuts the others have a lot of problems.. but I eat a ton of grass fed steaks, ground beef, beef and cod liver, (every meal!) etc. I started at 265 lbs and I’m now at 181 and it’s changed my life. I only recently started working out maybe a month ago doing HIIT timed well with fasting.
    Clearly you can be healthy doing what your doing, but if you have clients who are extremely obese and need to lose a lot of weight quickly in a healthy way keto is a good option before transitioning to your program once they’re past being really out of shape.

  • Dr. A,

    I am a member of FFP and I am on week 2 of FF30X. Due to some other health issues, I chose to remain on a LCHF eating plan. I can agree with most of what you said. One thing I did not agree with you on is protein. Keto is a moderate protein diet. My macros are 5% carbs. 25% protein and 70% fat (standard ketogenic macros). Eating a chicken breast does not knock me out of ketosis. In fact most days I have trouble eating enough protein. My protein amount is 103g per day.

    I eat chicken, beef, fish etc.. and use protein shakes on a daily basis and stay well within my macros.

    Thanks for all your great videos and I am really enjoying your FF30X program.

  • In late 2002 I was about 235lb at 6’0”. Employed in the oil service industry, I was forced into early retirement due to the telecom bust. With some time off, I finally began to look at myself and saw what I had become. I did not like it. I started what I thought was an Atkins like low-carb diet to reduce my weight. I also joined a gym and hired a fitness instructor for a while. I started to see positive results and that success further reinforced my dedication to reduce my weight and tone-up. I would guess that within 5 months I had dropped my weight to 190lb. My diet and my workouts became a part of my lifestyle.

    I have maintained that weight up until 2018 when I had severe back problems that eventually required surgery. During the few months up to and since surgery (L4-L5 fusion), I have not been able to work out. I started losing muscle and gaining fat. Fortunately, I only got up to 203lb.

    It’s now been about 14 weeks since surgery and started PT. Last week was my first visit back to the gym. I started Keto and IF the last week of December and seeing results. I’m already down to 191lb and looking to go further, still a lot of fat left and muscle needed.

    I’m not a person that can religiously weigh out my food and count calories, carbs, protein, and fats. I have a sense of about what’s right but I do religiously weigh myself every morning. I find it reinforcing when the weight drops and I work even harder when the weight goes up.

    This is my story of how the principles of Keto/Low Carb dieting and now Intermittent fasting has and is working for this 68yo.

    I’m always open to consider content from all sources. In short though
    , you must find a diet and process that reduces the fat, and then modify the process that allows you to maintain your goal once achieved. Going back to what you were doing before your fat loss is a guarantee of failure!

  • So glad you made this video Doc. I have a few friends that are doing keto and have been asking me to try it but after watching your video I really don’t think it’s for me. A diet this strict just wouldn’t work for me right now, I think there’s a lot better options for me that I’ve seen you recommend in your other videos. Thanks for breaking it down.

  • Intermittent fasting is working well for me I think its the best approach since it doesn’t slow down your metabolism like standard calorie restriction would.

  • I keep hearing about Keto Diet more and more and it’s always good things. I should probably give it a try to treat my ME/CFS, but I’ll have to make sure I’m properly motivated first. Seems like it takes dedication.

  • I am so impress of your video tips. This is very very useful method of ketogenic diet. So I like it very much. Thanks for sharing this video.

  • I normally eat a lot of protein but I know too much protein can actually be bad for you so maybe a ketogenic diet might be better just to be healthier too.

  • Josh Axe book on keto is fantastic. He saved his mothers life on the diet too after her second fight against Cancer. Very eye opening, great guy, great advice for anyone that wants to do keto the right way!

  • I had an uncle that smoked, drank and ate all the wrong foods in excess. He was grossly overweight and feeling poorly all the time. Then he started the keto diet. Four months after he started keto he suddenly died. He
    was hit by a bus. Just saying…..

  • Hey doctor Anthony, I’ve heard a lot of different opinions about the ketogenic diet and I was really confused between these controversial opinions. Your explanation was perfect, I highly trust your experience!

  • Excellent content from beginning to end. Sharing useful and effective information in all your detailed and well explained information about What is a Ketogenic Diet.

  • lol. this video is just silly… it is obvious the channel doing the reporting is sponsored by major food sponsors who sell carbage. You do KETO and have your own doctor compare your stats before and after and even your doctor will become a convert… It is an old respected way of eating that has always been healthy and the food companies hate when their market sheep give up bad carbs and begin to eat healthy (as in a Keto way of life)

  • very comprehensive set of Q & A on the pure fat Ketogenic diet starting from the very basics, interesting how a slight error in the macro nutrients department would eliminate you from the Ketosis.

  • I reversed my diabetes naturally just by following this diet: thebigdiabetes-lie. com (Google it) in a few weeks my health improved noticeably

  • why the background music? Katie know your audience; people are tuning in to hear the information, we don’t need exercise music in the background.

  • I just know that I have just lost 23 pounds since last Sunday and this is Saturday. Tomorrow morning will be my first week on keto.

  • Hi I am going to tell you a secret between age 20 and 43 my body was lean I work real hard from age 20 till I was age 35 with weight training 3-time a week alt day I eat protein food and some good fat.lots of water go to bed early at night sleep like a baby 8-hour plus I was getting releasing my natural growthhormone when I sleep but you will understand the bit.ps I never weight train now more than 45-minute in the gym,wear warm clothes in the gym train with real iron weight keep my training program simple 3 to 2 exercise per body part and one a week get to a park sprint fast across the park five times and then go home.know I am now age57 and I still work out ��️‍♀️

  • What he’ll is her problem with cheese?? Been doing keto for years and couldn’t be healthier. Katie is brainwashed from the 80s. She also asked some stupid questions… that’s she should already know, unless she was in a coma for 50 years…hang it up lady!

  • Paul what do you think of charles poliquins method of fat loss? Eating accoding to your genes and how well you use carbohyrates. Charles recommends your body fat for men needs to be around 10% before you deserve carbs and for women 16%. He also recomends up to 40% carbs to build muscle once bodyfat is low enough. This seems extreme however i get his methodology as carbs are not essential. He seems to have had tremendous results. Great video very informative many thanks

  • Thanks for the helpful information. I’m always looking for the finest organic products and keto seems to be heading in the right direction. Great video.

  • I am doing keto diet now,it is effective but a long term for weight loss. If you want a quick way of lossing weight? Intermittent 18:6 or 20:4 is very effective.for 5 days? You will loss 2-3 kgs or more.I tried this guys.

  • i really want to know this keto diet benefits. its clear from your video, that it will definitely lose weight and help to maintain good health. thanks for sharing useful information.

  • SO SO SO very important that we wade through all the confusion surrounding colloidal silver #colloidalsilverkillsall

    99.99% it’s the other 0.01% you gotta worry about

    It’s a good thing I have a head start with my masters degree in physics, those peer reviewed journal articles can be a doozy! I have been killing my brain tumor with colloidal silver, nutritional ketosis, a few other things. Colloidal silver creates reactive oxygen species (ROS) that cancer cells do not have a defense against

    Colloidal silver kills MRSA if that tells you anything…. “Good enough for NASA, good enough for me”, I say. It’s part of the water filtration system on the ISS because it kills listeria. That’s the stuff that almost put Blue Bell out of business and the bane of existence for anyone in the food industry

    I make my own and spray it everywhere cutting boards, countertops, kitchen towels…. it kills bacteria viruses fungi and does not leave behind superbugs like MRSA

    If you make your own, most of what you have is ionic silver. Well here’s the great thing #1 colloidal silver gets ionized anyway in your stomach assuming you ingest it (I drink about 2 ounces of 20ppm daily, of ionic silver) and #2 the ionized form is what you want anyway, to kill germs and induce apoptosis in cancer cells

    You can buy colloidal silver at the health food store for a pretty penny, or you can make your own. DON’T USE TAP WATER use DISTILLED water (I use the stuff they sell at the grocery store but it’s not hard to make your own), and 99.99% or higher pure silver. I recently bought some new silver rods for around 9 dollars a piece. The old rod has lasted me about a year. The other electrode is still like new (the anode, the one that gets plated with silver cations)

    Lots of free peer reviewed journal articles at Pubmed and Google Scholar. I also love the collection of articles and links at The Silver Edge

    P.S. don’t believe the unsupported claims at Medline WebMD Harvard Medical School etc that colloidal silver doesn’t have anything to back it up. Do your own research and stay healthy!
    P.P.S I didn’t buy my colloidal silver generator from the silver edge, but I really like the articles and links (God Bless Steve Barwick!) and here’s a video on how to make your own https://youtu.be/16jhTXMsfa0

  • Thanks. I don’t know if I’d do a 24 hour fast though, but I’ve been doing 16 hour fasts pretty “easily.” So what’s 8 more hours I suppose… but I probably won’t.

  • No dont do it, kedo diet will bring you LYMPHOMA of the blood; of which is cancer, of the bone marrow. To kill cancer eat apricot seeds. For diabetes fasting is the best way you can reverse it, and with one meal a day with multivitamin supplements will keep you healthy. My mother died on kedo diet, because her body absorb all the pesticides causing LYMPHOMA of the blood and didn’t have all the minerals and vitamins her body needed. My mother passed away in 2015 from complications of chemotherapy, a truly barbaric cruel way to kill her off only to make THE AMERICAN HEALTH ORGANIZATION millions of dollars through chemotherapy. Apricot seeds kill cancer.

  • Katie…Dr. Eric Berg from Alexandria, VA for more than 20 years on the Clean Keto diet got his CAC(Coronary Artery Scan) recently and got a 0 which is UNHEARD of (No alcohol consumption). CAC scan is the scan that shows built up plack in the arteries over your lifetime. Keto/Carnivore for life! I got rid of my high blood pressure FOR YEARS. Trans guy Lee, Richmond, VA (( forEVER greatful for the Keto doctors around the world))

  • There is evidence that shows fat does NOT cause heart attacks! The Australian Broadcasting Corporation aired a documentary that broke open the lie we’ve been fed about fat. Doctors from Harvard and UC San Francisco, among others, are featured, and they blow the lid wide open on the myth that fat is harmful. The show is very easy to watch �� Here is the link: https://youtu.be/1pfGTBXkq3g

  • Constant access to food is most of America’s problem with obesity! All the processed food is also a lot of the problem and is also where most cancer and diseases come from!
    Just by stopping drinking soda my stomach feels so much better and the weight stays off so much easier! Fasting or simply “NOT EATING TO MUCH/OFTEN” lets your body use up what you have consumed. If you don’t physically do much, “break a sweat and such” you can’t just keep shoving food in your face and not expect to gain weight! You have to burn/use the calories before replacing them! The analogy of the garbage was a good one! IMO and experience these statements are very true!

  • DocterOz….I would love to tune in EVERYDAY if you, guests and audience spent half the show exercising……Why do we no longer have a Jack LaLane or Richard Simmons �� type of show ��

  • I’ve struggled with my weight my whole life and it’s safe to say that I’ve tried a LOT of diets… The Keto diet is the only one I’ve managed to stick to and the weight is literal55ly melting off my body.

    Unlike other diets where I am feeling hungry all day and food is constantly on my mind, the keto diet has completely eliminated this, I actually NEVER feel hungry with this way of eating!

    I would definitely recommend anyone struggling to lose weight to try these custom keto meal plans as they really have been a godsend for me.

  • We use the keto diet in combination with intermittent fasting in our offices all the time. The combination works great for the right person. I have plenty of videos on my channel on why it may be the right diet for someone.

  • I enjoy keto, the fat helps me stay feeling full, but I do think it just boils down to healthy foods (that don’t cause your own personal inflammation), and calorie deficit, pretty much what Paul says, anything works within those parameters,  take your pick?

  • Personally….How people can believe that keto is healthy diet…the lady is absolutely right. History of great Nations like Japanese, Chinese, population which people live the longest… what…do they eat stakes and stuffing their faces with cheese and ham??? Fruits are the most healthiest foods in the planet…. Vegetables, brown rice… it’s just common sense…

  • @Paul Revelia, quick question for you. so if im tracking my carbs and i only want to eat certain about and my macro app says that i ate 20g but oncethe app updates with the data from my apple wach after going to the gym and now it says that my intake is -5g of carbs for the day.. what does that means? do it means that i have rrom to eat more carbs for that days or will it take me over the 20g mark to stay in ketosis?

  • I’ve been eating mainly keto for 2 years now and my performance has never been better at age 44! And I weightlift, circuit train, and HIIT all fasted. I do it with good fats, clean protein sources and lots of leafy greens. It’s not for everyone that’s for sure but the benefits such as cognitive function, being fat adapted, no hunger, better hormone levels, better body composition, tons of energy, no dips, makes it an optimal healthy lifestyle for this busy momma.

  • Paul. I started out on a ketogenic diet. I got into and maintained keto adaptation, varified by measuring ketones. Over months. I then went to a carnivore diet. I went from 240 lbs to 189 lbs. over the entire course of keto/carnivore dieting. never had body fat checked but used various apps to estimate going from 30 % to 15% body fat. This has taken almost a year to accomplish. I have been strict carnivore but have been “cheating “ on a more regular basis by eating more carbs, whether it be vegetables or sweets or whatever. I have recently gone back up to 200lbs. I am stronger than ever. I am more conditioned than ever. Added. I do not lift weights or work out at all. Haven’t touched a weight I over a year. I work construction and play drums for a living. I love how I feel eating in this way. I can go sometimes a couple of days without eating and feel great. I don’t drink much water. I get up around 8 am drink 2 Xyzience energy drinks every morning. Go to work as an electrician for 6 to 8 hours a day. Come home and drink 2 to 3 mixed everclear and Diet Cokes. Go to band practice playing drums from 8 to 10pm. Come home. Eat about 1 to 2 lbs of protein/ fat, usually steak for protein and pork rinds and melted cheese for fat, then go to bed around midnight. I do this because it works for me. But is there any reason why my body would change directions? Why would I start putting on weight after consistently maintaining 189lbs? Would it be me trying to flex in the carbs on the weekends? Maybe spiking insulin?

  • I think people are looking for that thing where they are going to have some magical system that produces an incredible transformation. There many ways to get to the same destination. Sometimes people are just ready to jump on the keto bandwagon just because it’s being talked about a lot and they hear fat burning. It’s for some and maybe not for others. You can burn fat when you are not on keto too. It’s best to know that going into it and before you decide if it’s right for you.

  • Great video. Keto for me, I just feel better. At work I never get that lazy tired feeling on keto. I literally feel like I could leave work and go back to work. In a carb based diet I never feel that aways. Now when I eat carbs I notice my blood sugar stays higher longer than what is usual for me.

  • So much wisdom in each and every your video and so nice explained!! Thank you.��Currently i am on keto for about 2 months and going pretty good, but for me best results gave carb cycling..just sayin

  • Your workout performance definitely suffers on Keto. Also you can get a really bad headache when you first start the diet, and have zero energy.

  • I’ve been losing and keeping my carbs around 120grams per day sometimes it’s more or less depends on the day and lose around a pound a week or so kind of depends and of course my hormones can change that each month, but so far so good and I don’t feel like I’m restricting myself.

  • Paul is right about not going in and out of keto. After a year of keto, I can have carbs without leaving fat-adaptation. I’m still burning fat. Lost 70 lbs and I’m 40. Only thing he’s wrong about is “keto-magic.” Being in keto GREATLY lowers your appetite and makes it easy to be in a caloric deficit. Much harder if you eat sugar/carbs.

  • Change from carbs to fat can be quite dramatic proces… Its not so beautiful as it appears on media..Nights without sleep, raised cortisol heart palpitations, mood swings, nausea… If you already in ketosis you are fine.. Your mood is steady you are even a little euphoric like on drugs… You not hungry at all.. Good for shredding… Initially you loose quickly water, and few pound fat, but to go further you need be in deficite… Your performance in gym drop. Another thing is: if your goal is shred fat it has to be hardcore keto, 8090% fat, and rest of it proteins..Literally zero carbs ( what make this diet like diet designed for epileptic childrens)… Its fasting mimicking diet…They say you can do “carbs from leafy greens 50g..” Not really if you want have good results in fat loose. Even little carbs can kick you from ketosis. I’m talking on my experience. ( Plus initially all your blood tests on keto can be horrifying: cholesterol up, trujglicerydes up) but just initially, then it goes even more down… The same with glucose… You may have temporarily insuline resistance. You wake up in morning and your fasting glucose is 105110, pre diabetic.. Its still discussable if keto diet itself can trigger insuline resistance… Some people claim yes, some people say: it’s treatment to reverse insuline resistance…. Generally it’s probably good to go once a while, in ketosis to reset metabolism, but stay on keto constantly… I don’t know about that…

  • Great video, Paul. What you are saying is the conclusion I came to. All the pro-keto people make it sound like ketosis is some kind of magic that makes your body burn fat faster than normal but from what I’m reading, and like you said in this video, there is no magic in the keto diet; it’s just a caloric deficit that causes fat loss. I’ve been doing what you recommend which is just being smarter with my carb choices (I’ve cut out added sugars, bread, and starches), I eat smaller, healthier portions, exercise daily and the weight is coming off. Thanks for your sound advice!

  • Ok, wow. I did not realize a ketogenic diet was mostly fats. That’s crazy! And the liver turns fats into ketones… Ok, that is not something I expected to learn, but wow!

  • OH MY GOD, Keto saved my husband’s life…. He had a quadruple bypass in 2013 we switched over to veganism but had a heart attack after being a VEGETARIAN for 6 years. We switched over to KETO and everything changed within 15 days of the switch over. Blood workup went normal, type 2 diabetes went away with MANY MORE PROBLEMS clearing up. His Cardiologist was amazed and side if he did not know him he would think that there was NOTHING WRONG with him. This guy above is all FACK NEWS. if you would like to see the story of someone that is living as a Keto person you need to go to UCRogyDm46jk_A9XHdTxcZcg (Loving It On Keto ) or you can go see the video “Keto Saved My Husbands Life” at this link = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ns6VYVDcJ0&t=495s It is one of my first videos so don’t expect to much, just the story of how it helped.

  • Protein is not converted to glucose that quickly or easily and will not “kick” you out of ketosis, you can have a chicken breast. I eat from 120g to 150g of protein. it is simple and sustainable.Berries are allowed.

  • I have been keto and IF for 2 years. When I started I lost 50 lbs of fat in a few months. I have kept it off easily and happily. My doctor says my blood work looks great. I feel wonderful and healthy. This is not an extreme diet. It is not a fad. It is a lifestyle change.

    Ignorant, biased, one sided propaganda stories like this are doing more harm than good. There is a mountain of credible scientific evidence in favor of the efficacy and safety of the ketogenic diet. I have to believe this story was created with an agenda.
