I a good friend of mine who is considering going low carb, was informed by a nutritionist at her work place (she works in the medical field) that the nutritionist oes not recommend the keto diet because it cause a reduction in longevity.
This goes against my understanding based my perception of the combined benefits associated with reduced risk of heart attack, stroke, diabetes, hypertension, fatty liver, kidney disease, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and cancer Also it is my understanding that an increase in the good LDL (i.e. low density and big LDL) , increased HDL and reduction in triglycerides tends to result in a reduction in all cause mortality.
However this is information I have gathered by osmosis watching 100’s of online videos.
I would be grateful if anyone has a nice list of videos and/or research references that they could share that clearly refutes her opinion so that I can dump the science in her lap and ask why she thinks keto reduces life expectancy when the science says otherwise (presuming I am correct of course).
Thanks for any help you can provide.
