Since going keto, I've had quite a few people telling me how it isn't long term possible

(paul) #1

I’ve gone keto after suffering a major inflammatory mosquito borne virus (Ross River), and I have a few people telling me its not long term solution, but seems to have worked for me on many fronts (virus, weight loss of 36kg, i’m stable at 73kg now).

I’ve been researching everything keto, but haven’t read too much against it.

I’d be interested to hear some feedback on the following article

i think that’s a vegan financed thing, the forks over knives. They will not post anything pro low carb.

I never understood how someone could say it’s not sustainable. the food is delish.


I guess when we go to residential aged care we will be inundated with carbs…until then, I think it is the most sustainable WOE :grinning:

Listen carefully, children: The keto way of eating is unsustainable, and it will kill us. “Unsustainable” means that we can’t possibly keep eating keto, but note that even though we can’t do it, it will still kill us—probably because of all the arterycloggingsaturatedfat, lol! :rofl::rofl:

Vegans disapprove of keto because most people eating this way eat meat.

Personally, I expect keto to keep me out of the old age home!

When the author links his statement about it not being proven to work on diabetes to a study on how it works on obesity, you know he’s a liar who doesn’t expect anyone to follow the links.

It’s vegan propaganda so is bound to go against keto, they don’t want anyone eating any meat period, irrespective of actual science and / or health benefits.

As for keto not being an option long term, I’m 3.5 years in and doing just fine.

And according to the image from the article, we all eat our food raw.


Look, @juice, their fork’s a little skewed too. :slight_smile:

Mine’s a better image, though :slight_smile:

No doubt!

Hmmmmmmmmm? I’m not dead yet but I figure if you think processed foods is healthy and nobody can figure out why everyone is dying of Alzheimer’s, diabetes, cancer and heart attacks etc. then maybe it is the quality of food being consumed not the ketogenic diet that is the long-term problem?

As far as sustainability is concerned, what brings death is not sustainable!

Eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we die? :rofl::joy::rofl::joy::rofl: LITERALLY? :no_mouth:

If all you were eating is unprocessed Whole Foods, you would be in ketosis (naturally, the way nature intended; spiking glucagon more often rather than insulin) without even trying, every piece of bread, pre-packaged laboratory grade chemically processed food and amount of refined sugars you consume takes years off the quality of your life at great speeds until it brings death and makes it that much harder to reverse diabetes or to get back to a healthy metabolic set point!

After reading the article, i do not consider it to be a credible source of information. There are no major scientific studies to back up any of the points…

And lets also point out that the writer clearly wrote in such a way to show Keto in terms of extremes. No fruit??? Uh…hello! Berries are fruit. I see many people consume fruit. and what is pumpkin and squash? a higher carb veggie. So where doed this author get off telling people Keto cuts out these food groups completely?
This article appears to be nothing but a bunch of hypothesized opinions trying to encourage Keto’rs to “see the light” in favour of a plant based diet.

Moving on …

I have had many people stress out over the fact that I don’t eat fruit. I do eat fruit - lots of it. Many people aren’t aware that “veggies “ such as cucumber, zucchini, bell peppers, avocados, and olives are actually fruit. No, I am not eating an apple a day or a glass of orange juice, but I consume plenty of fruit!

(squirrel-kissing paper tamer) #14

Right! The only “veggies” I eat on a daily basis are avocado and tomato which are both fruit.

What is long term to you? I started Dr Eric Westman’s Ketogenic Clinic diet in August 2010, reached goal and have remained at a healthy weight since. I’m 67 with perfect bloodwork and take zero medications. Seems sustainable enough to me :grinning:

At least a decade.

Only eight years!

That image raises several questions:
Why is there no steak knife?
Where is the salt?
Why is a vegan in possession of all that meat?

Doesn’t need to work long term for me, just 30 years. That’s probably past my expiration date.

Meh. I had coffee and a chat yesterday morning with a Cardiac Specialist and his Keto-researcher wife. Both highly recommend Keto for a wide variety of conditions. Don’t think I’ll concern myself over something from Forks over Knives and their (most likely) agenda :smirk: The Cardiac Specialist has put several of his patients onto Keto and says the results have been fantastic.

Boy, you’re a pessimist! :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:
