10 reasons for doing keto

Following a ketogenic diet can…

    1. Help reverse diabetes, if done at a clinical level – which maintains approximately 90% caloric intake from fats.
    2. Be beneficial for Alzheimer’s, as ketones are easily absorbed by damaged brain tissue unfit to respond to a carbohydrate diet.
    3. Decrease the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, such as fatigue, pain and cognitive impairment. 
    4. Treat epilepsy, especially with children. The clinical keto diet has been used since the 1920s to treat this condition.
    5. Help relax an autistic brain as the fat intake supports neurotransmission.
    6. Help to reverse certain cancer growth (though research before embarking – while many cancers feed off sugars and keto definitely helps restrict this, some cancers like prostate cancer feed off fats).
    7. Give you astounding lasting weight loss results – if your body only has fat as an energy source, it will be a fat-burning machine.
    8. Improve your health in the long run as the diet is low in deuterium and high in nutrition.
    9. Reset your taste buds and cravings, which is great for enjoying food and spending less money on bad nutrition!
    10. Protect the body from free radicals through ketones, and nuclear radiation – hence it is a useful biohack before embarking on a flight.
