Is this diet bad for your health?
Well - it's been great for my health! I started at 19 stone 4 lbs with type 2 diabetes for which I took 5 tablets, a statin and an asprin and my sugar was still out of control. I was unfit and starting to get other health issues to do with my weight. Today I am 11 stone 8 lbs and I don't take any medication for my diabetes, including the statins and asprin. I enjoy my exercise and am now quite fit. I have been maintaining my weight loss for over a year. I went for my yearly diabetes check up today and they told me that my long term blood sugar measure is the best result they have ever seen and that my bad colesterol level has had a huge improvement.
I also don't believe for a second that being in ketosis is bad for you. I did the diet for over 10 months and felt well and full of energy throughout. How can a natural situation like being in ketosis be bad for you? We didn't evolve in an environment where carbs were everywhere and available in anything like the quantities they are to us now. We evolved to spend periods of time in ketosis.
So who can possibly say that this diet is unhealthy?
