That's cultish nonsense. There is no such thing as a diet that must be followed "to the letter." Eat well and you'll thrive. If you're able to eat bread, for instance, eat it when you like. It's lovely stuff and you will enjoy life. If you're unable to eat bread, find alternatives but please don't pretend that bread is horrible just because it doesn't work for you.
No offense is intended by me for what I am about to say. So if any is taken please know that.
It is not cultish nonsense. Cultish nonsense is something like doing a water fast for 60 days. Which I have seen people do. That puts you at risk. I also personally consider counting calories as a sole measurement, not heeding the source of said calories, as cultish nonsense as well. Besides, carbs are not just bread. 300 years ago bread was a hell of a lot healthier than the nutrient deprived, has to be “ Enriched “ stuff that is out there now.
Primitive man survived because we as creatures rarely came across fruit or other high sweet items. We are by design built to survive and thrive in a state of ketosis. The human body was built to store sugar as fat if not immediately expended or stored back in muscle beyond what the brain knew it’s daily requirements to be. That fat can then be burned as energy, most important of all for the brain which requires fat for the nervous systems health.
If you truly believe ancient man had an abundance of anything but meat and insects and what few vegetables they could find for food, I’m not sure what to tell you besides maybe ask an anthropologist about the matter.
Sugars are converted quickly and stored as fat. It’s why we have such an epidemic right now. Go in the grocery store and take a serious, hard look around. 80-90% of the food in there I wager is not a form that existed 150 years ago. And that percentage is almost entirely processed high carb, high sugar foods that instantly for most people, get turned into fat stores.
Give me someone who has been on keto faithfully for one year, and someone who has been counting calories as their only measure for diet. I guarantee you the individual following keto will be far healthier and happier compared to the person just counting calories.
The quality of the food you eat as a human being matters. It comprises and goes into our very cellular makeup.
And personally, I would rather be built of protein and healthy veggies compared to Oreos and fast food. I will be proven overwhelmingly healthier in comparison.
I have followed this diet for years. My cardiologist recommended it due to family medical history. My doctors have stated it works. For years now.
That is not cultish nonsense. That is the facts in my life given to me by medical professionals.
