    The ketogenic diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet that offers many health benefits.

    I’m about to go keto.

    Have any of you heard of this way of eating? Would you ever try it?

    It’s not a trend diet. It has existed since the 1920’s, back then they used ketogenics to treat epilepsy (and they still do). It also can reverse diabetes and a number of other ailments. It can also prevent cancer before it happens.

    @Gus Just because it's old doesn't mean it's not a trend right now. :P
    But I'm not knocking it, like I said my friend absolutely loves it. I say do whatever works for you :)

    My neighbour ate straight butter once. She thought it was the best hangover cure and just chowed down half a stick w/o food.

    Probably not lol my friend eats these things called fat bombs between meals and I think they're made of mostly butter, but other stuff too.
    She also puts butter in her coffee :)

    I like butter but not like that.

    Oh yeah I have a few recipes for some fat bombs in my keto cookbooks.

    There are health issues associated with keto diets, but as long as you’re careful. If you go back on a regular diet you need to balance it properly or you’ll just gain all the weight back rapidly

    Not according to my lab work from the doctor, all health markers and numbers have improved dramatically.
