Ketogenic anyone?

Monday, April 30, 2018

Two days ago, I stumbled across the documentary, The Magic Pill on Netflix and found it to be so fascinating. Briefly, the hypothesis behind this documentary is that our bodies are more adept at using fat for fuel than it is at using carbohydrates. According to the documentary, humans actually evolved eating mostly meat, vegetables and healthy fats. Fast forward a million years, and we eat mostly processed foods, a lot of carboyhdrates and sugar, and a lot of factory-produced meat. And basically, the documentary alleges that this modern diet is the cause of many of the health problems that we face today. The documentary includes personal stories of people who had seen significant improvements and benefits from changing their eating habits to a more ketogenic diet which involves eating primarily healthy fats, meat and vegetables with very few carbohydrates. I found this documentary so intriguing and I’m curious, does anyone follow a ketogenic diet? And what has your experience been? Or just your thoughts in general.

    There are several groups. Check any Atkinson Group and check for Ketogroups. I adopted ideas from it. My diet has more protein and less carbs now and am not scared of fat. Strict keto or low carb (slightly different but similar) did not work for me.
