Title: Should you be on a ketogenic diet long term?
Post by: Rita on June 13, 2018, 08:44:52 PM
Dr. William Davis says it shouldn't be long term, as it creates a stress response.
I wonder if he's had some new 'ah-has' along the way.

I've been on a keto diet for a couple of months earlier this year and I've definitely noticed that I was just "tired" of it at some point. It was definitely a psychological response to the diet. I really want to try it again now that some time has passed though.

For those who prefer to read, there's a full transcript at the WB blog posting of that video (https://www.wheatbellyblog.com/2018/02/be-ketotic-but-only-sometime/).
The way I convey the message is: do chronic keto only if it's the most benign treatment for a chronic condition (but mind the gut flora (https://innercircle.undoctored.com/forum/topics.aspx?id=20559) in any case).
Chronic keto does not appear to be an ancestral diet.
KD is a tool in the Undoctored/WB box for short term use for various reasons. It's clearly a human adaptation for most genotypes, although most likely experienced in the wild as periods of involuntary fasting than as periods of fat-as-only-food.
Chronic keto is a current food fad. In addition to the microbiome concerns, I have to wonder if people doing it are fully informed on key micronutrients to mind (D3, I, Mg), or even optimal fat choices.
