    New year, new dieting craze. The ketogenic diet is the latest in popular diets in the US. It shares many similarities with the Atkins diet; it’s low-to-no carbs, some protein, and a lot of delicious fat.

    The keto diet isn’t exactly new. It’s been used to treat epilepsy since the 1920s, and it’s had promising outcomes from treating Type 2 Diabetes. However, epilepsy and diabetes aren’t the only reason people give the ketogenic diet a try. It’s also used as a diet for weight loss. The diet banishes most carbs, including fruit, and opts-in for fatty foods like avocados, salmon, eggs, cheese, butter, oil, and the holy grail of fatty meats — bacon.

    Unfortunately, science has not yet proven the keto diet to be the miraculous cure to losing weight, that some kept devotees claim it to be. The more extreme a diet, the harder it is to adhere to, and though the diet may be beneficial to some, that does not mean it will work for all who give it a try.

    The ketogenic diet is backed by good science. But findings support it as a treatment for epilepsy, not losing weight.

    Down 30lbs in 22 days on keto, I'm on day 23 now. I've lost weight faster than the hcg injectable diet where I lost 33lbs in 30 days

    “No evidence that keto diet works”?! Where are you getting your info from? This has to be the one and the only useless video of Vox. Very off-brand. Was expecting much more.

    A keto diet is primarily a vegetable based diet

    yes you do eat fish and meat but its not JUST BACON and dairy thats just wrong and unhealthy..

    obviously its not since there are a lot of people that are Vegan Keto ...
