SECURITY REASONS, WE WILL NOT DISCUSS THE SPECIFICS OF THIS PACKAGE. MILITARY CREWS HAVE SECURED THE PACKAGE AND IT WILL BE PROPERLY DISPOSED OF. THE KETO DIET KEEPS GETTING MORE AND MORE POPULAR, SO MUCH SO THAT GROCERY STORES AND CHAIN RESTAURANTS AND COFFEE SHOPS ARE JUMPING ON THE KETO CRAZE. ANYONE WHO HAS HEARD OF IT WANTS TO KNOW IS THE DATE SAVE? KARLI BARNETT TAKES A CLOSER LOOK AT THE PROS AND CONS OF KETO. LET ME SHOW YOU GUYS MY KETO FRIENDLY FOODS. Reporter: COOKING OUTCOMES NATURALLY TO MONICA ALVAREZ, ALMOST 2 YEARS AGO SHE WAS SEVERELY OVERWEIGHT AND NEEDED TO MAKE A MAJOR CHANGE. I WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO RUN AFTER MY KIDS, IT WAS BAD. Reporter: SHE SAID THE KETOGENIC DIET, OR KETO, HELPED HER GET HER LIFE BACK. BEFORE KETO I USED TO HAVE DIABETES, TYPE TWO DIABETES. I HAD HIGH CHOLESTEROL AND TRIGLYCERIDES. AFTER I DID KETO, IT HAS DISAPPEARED. Reporter: IT IS A HIGH-FAT, MODERATE PROTEIN, AND EXTREMELY LOW-CARB DIET. EGGS AND CHEESE AND LEAFY GREEN VEGETABLES. Reporter: IT WORKS BY BURNING FAT IN THE BODY, INSTEAD OF CARBS AND SUGAR. IN A PROCESS CALLED KETOSIS. MANY OUT THERE LIKE MONICA SAY A HIGHER FAT DIET LED TO A LOWER WEIGHT. I HAVE BEEN ON IT FOR 19 MONTHS. I LOST 150 POUNDS. THEM I JUST FRY IT UP AND A LITTLE BIT OF BUTTER JUST TO BROWN BOTH SIDES. Reporter: SHE FOUND WAYS TO MAKE HER FAVORITE FOODS WITH LITTLE TO NO CARBS. EVEN PANCAKES. VERY GOOD. I APPROVE. Reporter: SO, IS KETO THE ANSWER TO HEALTHY LIVING? REGISTERED DIETITIAN’S SAY PEOPLE SHOULD BE WARY OF A DIET THE CUT THE FOOD GROUPS. IT MAKES CHANGES SHORT-TERM TO DIABETES, BLOOD SUGAR NUMBERS, AND CHOLESTEROL. THAT IS PRIMARILY BECAUSE THERE IS WEIGHT-LOSS NOT BECAUSE OF THE MAKEUP OR THE CHEMISTRY OF THE DIET ITSELF. Reporter: SHE SAYS TAKING OUT CARBS MEANS LESS CALORIES BUT ALSO LESS NUTRIENTS. WE DO NEED GOOD, COMPLEX CARBOHYDRATES PICK WHOLE GRAINS, BROWN RICE, A QUINOA. Reporter: SHE SAYS THERE COULD BE RISKS, HIGH FAT AND PROTEIN CAN AFFECT YOUR HEART. IT REMOVES VITAMIN’S AND FIBER. THIS IS NOT SOMETHING YOU CAN CONTINUE WITH FOREVER, SO THE WEIGHT COMES BACK AND NUMBERS COME BACK UP. THE MORE OF THAT YO-YO UP-AND- DOWN YOU DO, BY THE WAY, THE MORE DANGEROUS IT IS. TO THE HEART, AND TO RISKS OF OTHER DISEASES. Reporter: IF YOU WANT TO EAT HEALTHIER, DITCH DIETING ALTOGETHER. FOCUS ON A BALANCE OF LEAN PROTEIN, HEALTHY FATS, AND YES, EVEN COMPLEX CARBOHYDRATES. SHE FINDS HER CLIENTS FEEL LESS DEPRIVED.
