The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that in medicine is used to treat difficult-to-control (refractory) epilepsy in children. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted into glucose, which is then transported around the body and is particularly important in fuelling brain function. However, if there is very little carbohydrate in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source.
Some of us need to be " in ketosis" to help repair metabolic health, for others simply going " low carb is enough.

The Truth About Sugar Addiction - BBC Documentary
We’ve heard for years about the dangers of eating too much fat or salt. But there have never been recommended limits for sugar on Canadian food labels, despite emerging research that suggests the sweet stuff may be making more of us fat and sick. I

A ketogenic diet is high in fat and very low in carbohydrates.
Here we will address the 12 most common anti-keto claims found in the media. While we are not suggesting a ketogenic diet is appropriate for all, this diet is clearly a safe and highly effective option for people with metabolic diseases (obesity, diabetes, heart disease, etc.), and therefore should not be falsely portrayed as a dangerous fad.

The Carnivore Cast is a podcast focused on the carnivore diet and lifestyle with practical advice from successful carnivores, citizen scientists, and top researchers answering your burning questions and meaty topics
Nina Teicholz is a New York Times bestselling investigative science journalist who has played a pivotal role in challenging the conventional wisdom on dietary fat. Her groundbreaking work, 'The Big Fat Surprise', which The Economist named as the #1 science book of 2014, has led to a profound rethinking on whether we have been wrong to think that fat, including saturated fat, causes disease.
Paul is a psychiatrist and functional medicine physician who has become a leading authority and promoter of carnivore-style eating. Paul talks about his background of western medical training, his approach of practicing "root cause medicine," and his discovery of incredible results from carnivore in himself, his patients, and many enthusiasts. Mark and Paul get deep into the science of how eating what we have always believed to be a healthy plant-based diet can actually result in nutrient deficiency (especially vegan and vegetarian), autoimmune and inflammatory conditions. Dr. Paul explains how coffee and tea can also deliver net negative results, especially in sensitive people. You will emerge with an excellent understanding of the premise behind carnivore beyond the knee-jerk reaction that this strategy is unfounded or even dangerous. Open your mind and learn about the radical concept that plant foods may not be necessary, and may even be harming your health
Fish is among the healthiest foods on the planet.
It’s loaded with important nutrients, such as protein and vitamin D.
Fish is also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are incredibly important for your body and brain.
So if you don't like meat, maybe still try to eat some fish.
If you don't want meat or fi
A low carb approach can still work for those who avoid meat because a ketogenic diet only requires moderate protein intake. You can enter and remain in nutritional ketosis without increasing the amount of animal products you may currently eat. Your protein needs can be met with vegetarian or vegan sources, and your fat needs can easily be met with plant-based sources like olive oil.
In the U.S., there are more than five times the number of former vegetarians/vegans compared to current vegetarians/vegans. It is clear that there are serious retention issues when it comes to these diets.
Keto was the most googled diet of 2018 and 2019. It limits carb intake to under about 30~50 grams a day ( deending on individual metabolism, and typically reduces appetite and intake of easy-to-overeat, hyperpalatable foods.

The Charlie Foundation received the American College of Nutrition’s 2017 Humanitarian Award for being "an organization that has worked selflessly and effectively in the broader field of nutrition to benefit humanity."
Initial indications are that T1 diabetes can be better controlled via a low carb diet.
Current indications are that lowering carbohydrates results in a significant improvement in fatty liver disease
Data emerging from the long term implementation of a well formulated ketogenic diet are positive in terms of markers for heart disease
