What is the keto diet?

The popular keto diet puts your body in a state of ketosis. But this isn't necessarily a good idea, according to this dietitian.

Ways the media portrays ‘fad’ diets

The ketogenic, or keto diet, is one of the most popular diets in America right now. This dietician broke down how and why. The keto diet method was stumbled upon in the 1920s by doctors seeking ways to control seizures in children with epilepsy. Keto practitioners take in a very low amount of carbohydrates in their diet — which led the keto diet to rank almost dead last in a recent list of popular diets in terms of health.

Carbs and fat aren’t always bad

“A diet is comprised of the foods that we eat every single day. So, the ketogenic diet is so-called because it puts a body into a state of ketosis. And what ketosis is, is when your body switches from using glucose as energy to using fat cells as energy. So, as we ingest a higher amount of fat, the body and the brain stop using glucose as the main form of energy and then switch to the added fat cells so that it speeds up weight loss. But what the media even portrays with all the fad diets that all carbs are bad. They're not. So, the reason the ketogenic diet ranked 34 out of 35 is because it's really high in saturated fat. And that amount of fat is not what we're supposed to be intaking. And it can really affect our heart health, as well as create an unhealthy relationship with food for when we break away from that period of doing the keto diet”, Lorraine Kearney, founder - New York City Nutrition tells Brut.

Don't go follow what the latest trendy diet is

In 2018, interest in the keto diet's popularity was blamed for taboos around bread and other carbs — some believe it caused a 34% crash in Wei stock according to the NYSE. The most common New Year’s resolution amongst American adults is some form of diet or weight loss based on Statista data. Kearney says that when it comes to taking their health seriously, dieters need to be informed.

    Just don’t over eat one of anything . If your eating nothing but bad crap all day . Guess what your body will react , and there is nothing you can do about it , there are warning !! Use your brain , get out of your bad habits , old ways , old everything . Use that brain first . Not a habit.

    Keto and Paleo are all about good fats, if people go gung ho on bad fats then they are doing it wrong...don't demonize a perfectly good plan that works for millions.

    What really happens is ,ppl normally tends to eat heavy sugary item n junk foods like donuts,cakes,bakery items,white breads,soft drinks,etc.....which adds thousands of calories unknowingly,they will never know what is stopping them from loosing weight when they follow medium carb diet but when they are subjected to diets like keto or palio .... they will stop eating those since they have a discipline,thats what necessarily causing the weight loss but ppl thinks that its the meat although meats are good its not the main solution

    Keto diet is great for diabetics. Low carbs help control blood sugar and if you don't eat a lot of high fat meats, it is doable.

    Keto isn't meant to be a lifestyle sustainable diet. It is very useful as a targeted healing diet. It is used to fight cancer and to cure other disorders.
