The keto diet can help with weight loss, but at what cost?
- In addition to weight loss, there are a few well-known side effects of the keto diet, some of which can be unpleasant.
- Some side effects of the keto diet are bound to occur, though others only happen when the diet is implemented poorly.
- The keto diet doesn't have to lead to a host of negative side effects, but anyone considering undertaking the diet over the long term should be especially careful.
Hint: Both lead to the same metabolic state.
- The keto diet and intermittent fasting are two weight-loss methods that have gained popularity in recent years.
- Both can put the body in a state of ketosis, which leads to many of the same benefits.
- However, scientists are still researching both intermittent fasting and the keto diet, and it's best to consult a doctor before making any drastic changes to your dietary habits – especially two changes at same time.
The exploding popularity of the keto diet puts a less used veggie into the spotlight.
- The cauliflower is a vegetable of choice if you're on the keto diet.
- The plant is low in carbs and can replace potatoes, rice and pasta.
- It can be eaten both raw and cooked for different benefits.
Studies have also shown that two weeks of sleep deprivation increases the consumption of excess calories, particularly from energy-dense, high-carbohydrate snacks.
Could vegetarianism actually lead to a lower quality of life?
Every month an onslaught of new nutrition news dominates the health blogosphere. Fish will kill you. Fish are heart-healthy. Coconut oil is like manna from heaven. Coconut oil will definitely give you a heart attack. Red meat is the devil, unless it's raw, in which case you can survive solely from it. Kelp. And so on.
