Keto Criticisms: The Pros and Cons of the Keto Diet

Many of you have heard of “keto diet” and have already hopped on the bandwagon. Ketogenic “keto” diet is a diet that allows the body to use ketones and fat as fuel while under a strict low-carb and high-fat diet. The science behind it is that instead of your body using glucose (produced by carbs), it uses ketones (produced by fats) as an alternative energy source. Ketones are made if you consume very few carbs, moderate amounts of protein, and high fat. For most people, the keto diet is healthy, though it has been noted that those who take medications for diabetes, high blood pressure, and breastfeeding women should consult their physicians first before doing this.
