These days, it seems that everyone is going “keto” – restricting carbohydrates and eating lots of fat. The resulting appetite suppression and weight loss can be dramatic and significant. But is it healthy? Keto from bacon and sausage without any vegetables – probably not. Well-formulated keto with avocado, olive oil, and plenty of veggies could be healthy and sustainable. More seriously, for 25% of people, keto causes their LDL cholesterol to soar, increasing their risk for heart disease. To be safe, learn about “healthy keto”, consult with your healthcare provider, and check your LDL cholesterol response to keto.
