Keto-like’ diet may be associated with a higher risk of heart disease, according to new research

Is there a memo out to just start attacking keto again? I wonder who sponsored this study….

This is a catalogue of the classic CW mistakes and errors. And I love how they describe a diet that has 25% of calories from carbs as “keto-like”.

My summary of the person who wrote this article: has absolutely no idea about proper human nutrition.

Moving on….

It’s CNN. Next study findings:

If I read the term “bad cholesterol” used as if it refers to true science one more time, I may have a cerebral event myself. Perhaps I shouldn’t be so harsh, it’s an ideal way of identifying rubbish articles in 10 seconds or less.

Eating a big mac is keto like. It’s like keto because you are eating meat.

I actually started a keto smear thread shortly ago. The thing they have in common is ketosis is never monitored, conveniently left out. That’s how elites run the world. They dish out data and suppress what they don’t want you to know, to drive their narrative, that they consider holy and just.

On a related note, I try to remind myself that there’s no such thing as bad science - just bad scientists. :test_tube:

Science is about nature, human opinions of what is science is just human opinion.

Reminds me of one of my favourite sayings: There are no stupid questions, only stupid—whoops! Better not finish that one! :grin:

I wouldn’t call this person “elite”.

They just looked at some data and saw that some people who met their “keto-like” diet had higher LDL than those in their “standard diet”. That’s it.

“A limitation of the study is that participants provided dietary information at only one point in time, which should be considered when interpreting the study findings, Iatan said. Moreover, self-reports of food consumption can be inaccurate, though Iatan said this questionnaire has been extensively validated.”

I see this for all these FFQ studies. And I never believe it. You can’t “validate” garbage.


What Phinney and Volek have to say:


… and from Virta Health and includes a link to Phinney and Volek’s article “The Sad Saga of Saturated Fat”:

There are six specific citations listed in support. These are not linked, but you can google the PubMed PMID#s and find them quite easily. For example, google the first: PubMed PMID: 25287761:

Articles like this start to make me angry, until I realize that “they” (medical and big pharma) don’t want the general population to know what will really make them completely healthy. God forbid nobody doesn’t need them anymore.
