Pros and Cons of Keto
Keto: The Good The Bad The Ugly
Keto has been around for a while. The diet is basically eating high fat and protein and limiting carbs. It has taken the fitness world by storm and now it seems like everyone is doing it. Keto is not the best long term diet to be on and before starting any diet you should consult a healthcare professional. People do see some amazing results from this diet that is for sure. It definitely has a place in the fitness world, but it should be looked at with caution.
Not Meant For Athletes
surprisingly Keto wasn’t always meant to be for fitness enthusiasts. This diet was created to help treat epilepsy. It just so happens that this low carb diet also helps with cutting fat. Low carb diets were always a trend especially when it came to cutting weight, but Keto treats it as more of a science.
Cutting on Keto
I am sure you may have seen the 30-day transformations that blow up your newsfeed. A lack of carbs will force your body to start using at as energy and that will help you cut fat while maintaining muscle. One thing to note is that Keto results will also be based on activity level as well as metabolism, so you may not see the same results as everyone else.
Unless your Doctor is making you do Keto then I wouldn’t recommend doing it for a long period of time. Carbs are useful for athletic performance and without it your body will eventually hit a wall. Your cutting phase shouldn’t last much longer than 3 months at a time or else you will plateau.
