In a search for recent news and articles about Ketogenics I ran across this article on Health.com. I have mixed feeling about it’s conclusions, but I wanted to repost it all for you to consider yourself.
“In a nutshell”.. their conclusion is a Ketogenic diet is difficult to maintain and leads to mood changes. I think all of us who weathered the first 2-3 weeks of the diet, the low carb flu, and the irritability, recognize that it’s a temporary state. In fact, I see it as one of the main incentives to stay on the diet. I don’t want to fall off the diet and have to go through that induction phase again!
For myself, my energy levels are fine. I run 10-15 miles a week without a problem, and I’ve settled into my favorite foods with no temptations at all to grab a bag of cookies or chow on a plate of pasta.
