  • I’m not sure that keto is a long term diet. It may help shift weight in the short term, but I think having such a high fat diet would have a bad impact on your organs (viscal fat). Talk to your doctor and/or other health professionals before starting extreme diets if any kind. They may want to do blood work and other tests to check current levels of everything in your body, then comparing periodically.

  • Yes its really works well if you properly follow this diet with excersice . No diet can work quickly and completely if u don’t do exercise

  • No it is not good for you at all. Keto is not meant to be used long term it is very dangerous to stay on it for long periods, you will end up with health issues. You will be better off on a wholefood plant based diet, low in fat, low in protein, high in carbs (only wholefood carbs not processed).

  • Absolutely, yes. If done correctly. Too many people misunderstand the requirement to balance macro-nutrients in a particular way, focusing on high fat, moderate protein and low carb. The best book I read on the subject (after reading several) is called “Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet” by Jimmy Moore. You really need to arm yourself with sufficient information before embarking on a keto journey, because if you don’t understand how it works or what is most important, you will struggle.

    Bottom line is, YES it is a fantastic way to boost health, lose weight and keep it off!

  • I mean another question about the keto diet, sorry

  • I answered some of this question in another comment about the ketodiet have a read of you like…

  • I haven’t done it. You just have to do what is right for you. I’m all for a varied and balanced diet.

  • The ketogenic diet is great I am on it then off it again a great way to loose weight fast alongside excerise

  • I’ve heard of it but know very little about it – will be interesting to hear what people say.

  • My daughter in law swears by it but I don’t really understand it. I see a lot of Keto recipes on Facebook though.

  • Is this a weight loss program? I haven’t heard anything about it.

  • Always do a substantial amount of research before embarking on any new regime.

  • You have to be really strict with yourself. It isnt easy but some enjoy it

  • Yes everywhere you turn there is something about Keto. Really I think you have to look into it, see whether you can actually follow it and is it worth it for you? Will the rest of the family be doing it too and what are you going to do it for? Keto is not just weight loss but can be used for health problems too.

  • I think you’ve got to do what works for you. My brother has done keto and swears by it. It is a bit much for me, I just think eating healthy and not eating pre packaged food is a great way to go.
