The dangers of the keto diet

newspaperThe keto diet is very popular and includes many benefits to your health. It is a low carb, high fat diet that has gotten lots of attention in the weight loss department. Lower insulin levels, lower blood sugar, and lower glucose levels along with weight loss are all benefits of the keto diet according to this ultimate guide. It has also been shown to have positive effects on diabetes and other conditions/diseases.

There is a lot of good involved with the keto diet, the list of pros go on and on for quite a while. The thing that makes or breaks your decision to start or continue the keto diet is the bad though. No matter how good anything in this world is, we have to consider the bad and that’s what we’ll be doing with the keto diet. Let’s discuss the negative things that you should consider so you can make the best decision possible.

Keto Flu

There is a good chance you could go through flu-like symptoms in the early stage of this diet. You could end up feeling hungrier, weak, tired, and have an overall decrease in function. That sounds bad and those aren’t things anyone willingly would want for themselves, but the good thing is that this should only last for a couple of days. This is not something that you will have to deal with over a long period of time. You have a good chance of lessening the effects if you ease into the diet by slowly consuming less carbs until you get to where you need to be.

Stick To Eating Keto Friendly Food

This is not an easy diet to be consistent with. You cannot stray from the foods you are supposed to eat in order to maintain the keto diet. Many fruits and vegetables are stripped away from the things you consume while on this diet. You may very well end up lacking the nutrients you get from fruits and vegetables, which could end up taking a toll on you.

The best thing to do is use this diet for a short amount of time. This is not something you want to invite into your life for a long time. You don’t want to be eating a high amount of fat with little to no vegetables or fruits included. Another thing to think about is your lifestyle. You won’t have as much freedom when it comes to meals, snacks, and drinks. This may cause you to starve yourself or fail at being consistent. You can avoid this problem by stocking up on what you need.


The keto diet has its benefits, but everyone who is interested in it needs to consider the negatives. One of the most important things is to know for sure that this diet is for you. You could be inviting more negatives than positives if you try this and it’s not for you. Consult with a professional to see if this diet is something that will help you. For those of you who can benefit from this and will try it, I hope it brings plenty of positivity into your life.
