Ketogenic  Diet or Keto Diet for short, has become a very popular weight-loss trend. The Keto diet is high in protein, high in fat, and very low in carbohydrates. The composition of this diet can lead to weight loss and other health benefits.

Why The Keto Diet?

THE KETOGENIC DIET  is used to help treat people living with epilepsy; it is known to decrease the number of seizures experienced by persons diagnosed with epilepsy. 

The bodies of those who follow a ketogenic diet are forced to burn protein and fat for energy. Moreover, fats and protein keep you feeling full for longer. Therefore you will not feel the need to eat as often and potentially lose or maintain weight.

The Keto Diet vs. Atkins Diet 

The Keto diet is similar to THE ATKINS DIET  that follows a very low carbohydrate plan. However, one of the main differences between the two diets is that at least 75-80% of the Keto diet comes from fat, whereas the Atkins Diet focuses mainly on protein consumption.

Harvard Health Publishing  wrote more detailed information and the potential health risks of the Keto Diet  in one of their articles entitled “Should You Try The Keto Diet?” 

South Beach vs. Keto Diet

THE SOUTH BEACH DIET, which I am more familiar with and knowledgeable about, was developed by a Heart Surgeon in South Beach Miami.  In comparison, this diet promotes heart health by including a balanced mix between proteins, good fats, and wholesome carbohydrates. 

In addition, the first 2-3 weeks, the diet calls for you to eliminate carbohydrates, including fruits from your diet. Within the 3rd week, you start to introduce healthier carbs such as whole grains (brown rice, quinoa).

Fad diets such as the Keto or Atkins Diet will work for most people and can be a long term fix for losing weight and/or maintaining weight. However, from a Nutritionist point of view, living a healthylifesyle includes daily sweats of physical activities and moderate consumption of foods. physical activityThese will help you live a healthier and longer life. 

Remember my motto: “no food is unhealthy until you overeat.” Moreover, there are no magic diets or supplements that will make you live a healthy life. Always consult with your Health Care Providers before attempting any diet or exercise regime.
