Is The Ketogenic Diet The New Fad Diet?
Is the ketogenic diet the new fad diet?
Short Answer: It depends on who is doing it, and how they’re doing it.
The ketogenic diet, or keto as it’s popularly called, is not new. Physicians have been using as a dietary therapy since the 1920s. It was the original therapeutic diet for treating children with epilepsy.
Not too long ago fat was seen as the enemy of fat loss because many believed it was fat that was making us fat.
People who wanted to lose body fat were advised to reduce their dietary fat intake. Dieters paid premium prices for foods that were labelled as, low-fat or fat-free. In the land of dieting, fat was the most hated macronutrient!
But things have changed in recent years. We no longer see fat as the enemy of fat loss because the goalpost has moved, and another macronutrient is taking the backlash. Dieters can now eat as much fat as they want—thanks to Ketogenic diet and low carbs diet.
Congratulations fat! The supreme court of dieting has declared you not guilty. The proclamation: “It’s not fat that makes us fat!”
You’re now the new B.A.E, fat! Let’s make a (bulletproof coffee) toast to your victory!
