Are you following or considering starting the keto diet?
Don’t. ✋🏼 Why?
1️⃣ YOU’RE GOING TO GAIN IT BACK
Some people say they experience weight loss in the first week or so—sure but what they don’t tell you is that they regain it all (if not more)when they get go back to their regular diet.
AND now, there are also tremendous risks that are associated with following your ketogenic diet in the long term:
❌ was increased risk of kidney stones.
❌ greater chance of developing osteoporosis.
❌ increased risk for painful gout.
❌ Oh 🤭 and not to mention the possible nutrient deficiencies when you can’t eat fruits and veggies!
2️⃣ YOU’RE PROBABLY NOT DOING IT RIGHT
Did you know that you’re supposed to pee on ketone strips when you’re on the keto-diet?
This helps you to track the about of ketones that your body is producing (measuring fat burning). If levels are too low, then you’re just eating more fat and more than likely aren’t seeing any weight changes (or your gaining weight). If levels are too high, your blood can become too acidic and you could put yourself in the hospital.
3️⃣ IT’S UNREALISTIC
The ketogenic diet has crazyyy standards. 😵 A proper keto plan has you consuming 70-80% of your calories from fat! (That’s a lot of 🥑 and 🧀) Typically, this diet will only allow about 50 grams of carbohydrates per day—that’s less than the amount of carbs in a medium plain bagel! 🥯 And some diets go even lower!! 🤭 You don’t even have room in your diet to enjoy a bagel let alone granola.
This diet alsooo restricts protein consumption—because too much protein can prevent ketosis....bye bye muscle gains. 👋
If these ketone levels aren’t monitored, you could be risking your health.
Diets are not like one size fits all hats.
Every body is different and reacts, digests and metabolizes food differently.
YOUR DAYS SHOULD BE ENJOYABLE, NOT CAUGHT UP IN COUNTING GRAMS OR CALORIES.
