Let me tell it like it is...
KETO ISN’T YOUR ANSWER!
Y'all know how I feel.
Fad diets, crash diets, restrictive diets (literally any diet or detox) do not provide enough support or the right strategy to lose weight in a sustainable way.
And it definitely doesn't cultivate a sustainable healthy lifestyle!
Hate to break it to ya, but...
So much research has been done on the ketogenic diet specifically proving that it's no more beneficial for you than a higher-carb diet.
⚠️When studying obese and overweight adults, half on the ketogenic diet, half consuming carbs but with consistent calorie intake, they found that there was no difference in weight loss between the two diets (Gardner et al., 2018).
⚠️Research found that the ketogenic diet led to higher cholesterol & higher inflammation in the body (Rosenbaum et al., 2019).
⚠️It has been proven that the ketogenic diet is NOT superior to a diet that is higher in carbohydrates (Iacovides et al., 2019).
Also, we don’t know the long-term effects of the ketogenic diet! And y’all, that’s because it’s almost impossible to get the research approved due to the inherent restrictive nature of the diet. Ummm, yikes.
So, there ya have it...
But then why do so many people still choose fad diets or try keto?! Because the “get fit quick” solution is heavily marketed and seems like a simpler, easier solution.
But you know what’s even more simple?! Finally ending the guessing game about which diet will work for you...
You can do that by joining a program that personalizes plans for YOUR body, goals, and lifestyle. Without going on a diet!
At Be About Being Better, we teach clients how to eat in a balanced, non-restrictive way (AKA you still can eat the foods you LOVE!) We tailor your solution to YOU.
