Let’s talk about the keto diet today!
It seems to be the latest big trend in the weight loss world.
And I am having a turkey sandwich and an apple for lunch after I write this, so I thought it would be perfect timing 🙂
So let’s start with explaining exactly what the “keto” diet actually is.
The popular low-carb diets (such as Atkins or Paleo) are somewhat similar, but they modify a true keto diet.
A true keto plan centers on fat, which supplies as much as 90% of daily calories.
Instead of relying on sugar (glucose) that comes from carbohydrates (such as grains, legumes, vegetables, and fruits), the keto diet relies on ketone bodies, a type of fuel that the liver produces from stored fat.
So the idea is that your body burns fat for fuel, and you lose weight!
So does it work?
For a lot of people, in the short-term, yes.
I’m sure you’ve heard from a friend or family member or co-worker who tried the approach, and it’s been great for them.
But here’s my thing.
For 99%+ of people, this approach is not sustainable.
I just don’t think the vast majority of people doing this are still going to be at it five, ten, fifteen years from now.
And quite honestly – if you’re not planning on making it a life change, why bother?
WHO CARES if I can get you to lose 10 or 20 or 30 or more pounds … but then you can’t keep following the plan for longer than a couple / few months … and you end up this time next year at the exact same place you are now?
