Subject: RE: BS: Keto diet - anybody try it? Like it?
Hi Mrrzy,

I have only ever heard that the keto diet could have serious medical risks if it is being used to lose weight.

Harvard Health Letter
Should you try the keto diet?

I would not compare it with the Atkins diet which focuses on lower carb intake and higher protein. The keto diet focuses on lower carbs but high fat intake. To me it is counter-intuitive and makes no nutritional sense compared with healthy eating plans which focus on increasing vegetables,fruit, healthy grains and legumes and low fat protein.

My fave is the CSIRO healthy eating plan
