Next to some relatively acute side effects,
like the keto rash that I talked about in
a previous video, the keto diet may have some
long term dangerous health effects, especially
if the low carbs are replaced by high protein
and high fat from animal sources.
Several studies indicate that the risk of
disease and death is lower with a moderate
carb diet than with a high or low carb (keto)
In these studies high-carb is seen as 65%
or more of the energy from carbs, moderate
is 45-55% of the energy from carbs, low-carb
is 30-40% of the energy from carbs, and extra-low-carb
30% or less of the energy from carbs.
But, when scientists compared low-carb diets
rich in animal proteins and fats with those
that contained lots of plant-based protein
and fat, they found that eating more beef,
lamb, pork, chicken and cheese in place of carbs was linked with a slightly increased risk of death.
Studies speculate that Western-type diets
that restrict carbs often result in lower
intake of vegetables, fruit, and grains, and
with that a lower intake of fiber, and lead
to greater consumption of animal proteins
and fats, which have been linked to inflammation
and aging in the body.
Data suggests that animal-based low carb diets,
which are prevalent in North America and Europe,
might be associated with shorter overall life
span and should be discouraged.
Instead, if one chooses to follow a low carbohydrate
diet, then exchanging carbohydrates for more
plant-based fats and proteins might actually
promote healthy aging in the long term.
For me the ketogenic diet is a good option,
but not the only option to lose weight.
Personally I prefer not to exclude one certain
macronutrient, especially for long term sustainability
of a healthy diet.
The important message to conclude this video
is that it is not enough to focus on the nutrients
alone, but whether they are derived from animal
or plant sources.
