    Peter Attia on people who don't do well on a Ketogenic Diet

    I know there's a few people around here who don't do well on a ketogenic diet.

    Its amazing how all things do not work well for everyone. Ah the saying none of us is exactly alike. I did real well on a low carb diet when I was 25 only wanted to lose about 15 lbs then, was not diabetic had energy coming out my ears. Tried it 20 yrs later and did not change my numbers that much, yes better but not to normal. I hear from some weight falls right off them and numbers turn to normal, nice if you can get it maybe pancreas function should be measured who knows why or what causes this.
