Dr. Berg talks about why keto (ketosis, the ketogenic diet) is considered dangerous and has gotten a bad rap because it increases your risk for diabetes, metabolic syndrome, spiking your blood sugars and making you fat. There were over 650 publications stating that a high fat diet increases your risk for all sorts of health problems. However, if you evaluate this HIGH FAT DIET they fed rats, you will find it is really a high fat, high carb diet, which IF you combine high fats with high sugar, you can increases your risk for blood sugar problems, high cholesterol, diabetes and lots of other problems.

Traditional ketogenic diets used for kids can spike your risk for kidney stones because of the drop in pH making the body very acid (from ketones). However, traditional ketogenic diets involved low quality fats (margarine, soy oil, hydrogenated soy oil, lard, corn oil and even corn sugar and maltodextrin (not to mention synthetic vitamins). These are not healthy ingredients and the lack of vegetables will create all sorts of long term vitamin and mineral deficiencies. So critics will use Traditional Ketosis and their studies to explain why the ketogenic diet is unhealthy and is not good long term. This is why we recommend a healthy version of ketosis -combining low carbs with healthy foods.

I like to ask critical people of keto and intermittent fasting what would they recommend as a healthy diet – and this is where conversation ends fast, because they do not have one and don’t want to talk about that.
