I can’t tell you the number of times in the past year I’ve been asked what my thoughts are on the ketogenic diet. My answer has always been along these lines; there’s evidence to show that it is beneficial for quick fat loss, but it is highly restrictive and not sustainable long term. However, there was always a small part of me wondering what it would be like to follow, and if I would feel or perform any different if I entered a state of “ketosis”. Further, having to experience it myself would make me more comfortable in guiding a client or patient in adhering to the diet should they need or want to for certain health circumstances.
