3 Reasons You Might Want To Ditch That Ketogenic Eating Plan

Ketogenic eating might just be the most popular idea in the unconventional health and fitness movement right now. I get dozens of emails a week from people asking for Keto tips and tricks. I’m not convinced that most of these people should be Keto though. It’s been billed as a great way to lose weight, which has attracted a lot of attention, but it’s not all roses, unicorns, and fairy dust. Here’s three reasons why you might want to reconsider your plan to go Keto… 1. Ketogenic eating is obsessive. When I interviewed Jimmy Moore, author of Keto Clarity, this is one of the issues I brought up. Ketosis is notoriously difficult to get into, verify, and sustain without bringing back some of the old, obsessive Dieting strategies that we’ve been working hard to get away from. Tracking macros, monitoring blood glucose, and testing ketone levels are all required steps in the process for most people. This kind of protocol attracts people with disordered eating habits. It’s the perfect blend of effective, obsessive, and new. If you’re trying to get into ketosis for medical reasons, then you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do. If you want to get into ketosis because you hear Continue reading >>

    @carol anne - you need to read up on low carb high fat diets - plenty of people on this forum are losing weight this way, and it's an excellent diet for diabetics, because it also helps reduce high blood glucose levels. It's carbohydrates not fat that are the problem, and skimmed milk is full of carbohydrates, so isn't appropriate for this type of diet.
    @Inkey-2008 :
    It's possible to in ketosis and not lose weight - it's not of itself a weight loss diet - you still do need to take care of total calories. I know because I'm currently in this same position!
    Check with one of the keto specific nutritional calculators, e.g. http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/DietMakeupCalc.php or http://www.ruled.me/keto-calculator/, and see how they compare with what MFP is telling you. Jenny Ruhl's mini book advertised on the phlaunt calculator page may also be helpful.
    Maybe ditch the milk too for lactose free or something like Alpro unsweetened almond milk, and check carefully for hidden sugars in the mayo and coleslaw if they're not homemade.
