A well written, well researched post indeed.
Only a couple of problems. Aside from medical and/or digestive issues related to food consumption the bottom line is that most people want to just
lose weight. With that said, it's calories in / calories out all day long. One could eat a diet of oreos, twinkies and doritoes and if they consume
less calories than they are burning, they'll lose weight.
The other thing I don't like is the fact that so many people are so desperate to find a solution, they're willing to jump on any diet of the day
band-wagon. Atkins, Paleo, Keto, and brands, Weight Watchers, Slimfast. I looked it up a while ago and there have been over 200 fad diets over the
last 20 years or so.
I don't like to demonize food. They 'type' of food isn't the issue if we're talking obesity, the amount is.
I do agree with a whole food, minimally processed and mainly plant based diet to cure whatever ails ya. However, our biology was made to use all 3
macro's (Carbs/Protein/Fat) for optimal performance. Not just one or two.
Overall I agree with a lot of what the post speaks too. Check back next year when Keto is long gone and replaced by several other versions.
And yes, I'm a master licensed nutritionist and a competitive body builder.
