Keto Diet: Good or Bad?

Keto Diet: Good or Bad?


The booklets cry out at you in the grocery
store checkout line, displays greet you in the drug store, and ads bombard you on social
media, all espousing the virtues of the Keto Diet. Cardiologist Dr. Gaurav Sharma at Rochester
Regional Health says Keto can be used to treat certain conditions like epilepsy but cautions
against using it for general weight loss. I think the problem, the potential problem
with the Ketogenic Diet is that there’s no long-term studies to show that it is helpful
to your health on a long-term basis. Registered Dietitian Rhianon Condello, also
at Rochester Regional Health, agrees with the others saying fad diets might be helpful
in the short term with medical supervision, but adds this is not a forever fix. The biggest thing with these, and it almost
helps us, is most of them aren’t sustainable and that’s why they’re diets. They’re
not long-term lifestyle changes, which is what we preach. To learn more about Keto and eating advice
