The Keto diet is a drastic measure designed to manage children’s epileptic seizures. For weight loss, keto is an unhealthy and potentially dangerous fad diet. While keto contributes to weight loss, ketosis damages the body long-term.
The body reacts to ketosis as it would to starvation. This is not healthy.
Regaining the Weight
Many people regain more weight than they lost in the long run. Clinical dietitians agree that keto is not sustainable for most people.
Keto limits foods known to cause long term weight loss. On the other hand, it promotes foods common sense tells us are unhealthy. For example, Keto promotes eating bacon, while it forbids eating apples.
It sounds good for bacon lovers. But deep down, we all know this is silly and unhealthy.
Ketosis takes a toll on the body. It could cause the following:
1. Kidney Stones
2. Kidney Disease
3. Low Blood Pressure
4. Higher Risk of Heart Disease
5. Nutrient Deficiencies
Keto can also decrease good LDL cholesterol.
Temporary Side Effects
When beginning the keto diet, people often experience:
2. Upset Stomach
3. Mood Swings
Healthy Foods Keto Forbids
What kind of healthy diet forbids eating healthy food? Forbidding healthy food only makes sense if allergies are present.
What’s the difference? Vegetarians, unlike vegans, eat animal products such as eggs, milk, and honey. However, both vegetarians and vegans avoid eating meat.
Foods that promote long-term weight loss that Keto forbids:
1. Whole Grains
2. Fresh Fruits
3. Fresh Vegetables
4. Low Fat Dairy
