A nutritionist told whether to try this diet for yourself
Keto diet is very popular recently. Nutritionist Albina Komissarova said on his page in Instagram how it is effective and safe for health.
So, keto diet(LCHF) first created in 1921 by Dr. Wilder and was used in children for the treatment of epilepsy in a case when the medications were ineffective. Later said that during this diet reduced body weight, and so, you can try to treat and obesity.
The meaning of keto diets is that 75% of our diet should be fats, 20% protein and 5% carbs. That’s all the secrets of this diet. With a sharp restriction of carbohydrates in the course is an alternative fuel — proteins and fats. As a result of oxidation of fats ketone bodies are formed, which give us energy.
The pros of this diet are as follows:
— Always satisfying due to the large amounts of fat
— A large weight-loss in the initial stages
— You can eat delicious, fatty food
However science claims that keto diet is not physiological and the who recommends as the main source of energy — carbohydrates(45-65%, not 5!!!). The researchers argue that by limiting foods rich in carbohydrates, may occur lack of vitamins and minerals.
“The first major study of 2003 showed that there is no statistical difference in weight loss between people on a normal keto-diet. Noted that weight loss is not associated with a decrease in the number of carbohydrates, and calorie restriction,” writes Komisarova.
A systematic review of 2013 shows that the keto diet is likely not safe due to reduced consumption of fiber, increase consumption of saturated fat, a risk factor for increased mortality and cardiovascular diseases.
That is, according to nutritionist, keto-diet is effective in the short term, but it is likely to gain weight afterwards. The effect of weight loss is likely to be achieved by reducing caloric intake.
Also, the dietitian noted the following cons:
— Still have to consider and weigh
— Completely contrary to the basics of healthy eating behavior
Diet has limitations, especially in pregnant/breastfeeding, children, patients with diabetes
— Lack of carbohydrates can give weakness, apathy, headaches, constipation, bad breath
“If you want to try — try, but after consultation with a physician,” concluded Komisarova.
Recall, the new diet is gaining momentum: what to eat healthy people.
As reported Politeka, scientists suggested a tasty way to get rid of depression.
Also Politeka wrote that doctors told the truth about the water with lemon: “it is Healthier to eat an orange.”
