The ketogenic diet, the black sheep of the nutritional community.
The ketogenic diet is a way of eating that involves lowering the amount of carbohydrates you consume and increasing your fat intake. But with everyone glorifying carbohydrates and demonizing fats, there is no wonder why this diet is considered unhealthy.
People do their diets in an unhealthy way all the time. Take the high carbohydrate low fat diet for example, if you follow the macronutrient ratio to the tee, but ignore a the “whole foods” approach you might end up eating a lot sugary cereals, low fat sausages and what not. That kind of diet would be, by no means a healthy one. The same principle applies to a ketogenic diet. Having a high fat consumption does not equal “eating any fatty food on sight”. It is not the same to eat a whole jar of peanut butter versus eating 3 avocados, even if they add up to the same amount of fat.
Ketogenic diet books
Knowledge is the most essential tool for anyone. If you’re trying to build a bussiness, learn a language or a skill, you look for information on the subject. Why would dieting be any different? The ability and the mindset to make the right food choices for a healthy diet can be learned, either through books, papers, blogs, videos, or even by mouth. However, it is always better to get your information from a reliable source, like a well researched book or a scientific paper. That’s where we come into play.
You will find many books related to the ketogenic diet, but often times they will lead with a promise for “quick weight loss” and “quick health”. Trust me, they’re not worth a single second of your life. Why would you spend your money and your time reading some weird mixture of “bro-science” filled with myths and poorly researched information, when you could read better and scientific-supported information instead? That’s exactly why we want to get the word out there, but not any word, a good word.
