A Quote from Business Insider

From “High-fat diets like keto are nearly impossible to maintain, research suggests — but there’s an easier way to eat well” by Hilary Brueck at: https://www.businessinsider.com/why-keto-diet-is-hard-2019-5:

Doctors recommend keto diets in certain circumstances: It’s an established way to help control Type 2 diabetes, and the plan has been used to reduce instances of childhood epileptic seizures for nearly 100 years. Scientists even have some limited evidence that keto diets might help overweight people keep extra pounds off, though other studies reject the idea.

    1. Indeed, it is a modernized version of the original Dr. Atkins diet. If you look at the books I listed at https://diabetessolution.blog/2019/05/16/books-about-diabetes-and-keto-diets/ you will see a book entitled “The New Atkins for the New You” written by 3 doctors/researchers who specialize in medical nutrition. One of them (Dr. Eric Westman) is now the Director of the HEALcare Clinic and is my doctor. I talk with him at least once a month.


  1. Another good book is “The Diabetes Code” by Dr. Jason Fung, a kidney specialist in Toronto. By following his suggestions of a low carb, medium protein, high fat diet & interrmittent fasting, my A1C is now 5.8, down from 6.5 last September and I have lost weight.
