If you’ve looked into diet trends, there’s no doubt you’ve heard of keto. Keto is the next big diet trend, but it’s not a fad. The keto diet is not the magic cure-all for every single disease on the planet, but it does a good job at being the potential healer of many horrible medical conditions. Let’s look at the facts and benefits of the keto diet.

Benefit #1: Weight Loss

This is probably the benefit most of us want from the keto diet. Why does the ketogenic diet lead to weight loss? Why is it more effective than traditional diets? Here are the main reasons:

IMPORTANT: The ketogenic diet is not a free-for-all diet that permits you to eat as much as you want. The basic rule of calories still applies. If you’re eating more calories than you burn, you will not lose weight. So focus on eating fatty cuts of grass-fed meat, butter, eggs, avocados, green veggies, and be modest with the keto desserts, dairy, and sweets.

Benefit #2: Brain Function

A poorly functioning brain leads to decreased work productivity, which in turn means an unhappy boss, lack of job satisfaction, sugar cravings for energy, and depression. It’s a horrible domino effect. The original ketogenic diet was formulated by Dr. Russell Wilder in the early 20th century to treat epilepsy. The success rate was phenomenal and it is still used today to treat epilepsy and other brain disorders. Research also indicates that ketones are more efficient brain fuel than glucose.

One study showed implementing the ketogenic diet led to a dramatically increased survival time and slower tumor growth. (Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5450454/)
