As an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I don’t advocate one diet over another. I believe it’s important to listen to your body & pay attention to the internal signals it sends you regarding how it feels based on the foods you consume or avoid.
I also blanch at trendy or fad diets.
Because the health & fitness industry, estimated to be roughly $72 Billion dollars for 2019, is massively invested in maintaining and growing the industry, which means… hyping the latest and greatest diet to end all diets … to get you to drop the one you’ve been on and jump on the new “magic pill” bandwagon… investing more of your dollars into the “best diet ever…”
In the past couple of years there has been a major uptick in popularity of the Keto diet… which is basically a rebranded version of the previously popular Atkins diet. Because, let’s face it… simply put, eating a high protein, low carb diet works! But, I’m not here to debate the differences between Atkins and Keto…
I’m here to remind you that what matters most is how YOU FEEL. If you are following a diet that doesn’t make you feel good, or one that is potentially harmful to your long term health… I strongly encourage you to reconsider your choices.
I also encourage you to seek out the pros and cons of a regimented, restrictive diet you are following, or considering following. You need to understand the possible harmful consequences of long term ketosis, the weight loss state of the Keto diet.
The following link offers some alternative views of the Keto diet. I encourage you to become an informed consumer. I also encourage you to advocate for your own health and wellness.
Again, I’m not taking sides against Keto… I’m offering a different perspective.
