Low Carb and Keto Diets – the good, the bad and the ugly (short video)

What is good, bad or ugly is always a question of perspective. In this short video I reflect on what I see as the “good”, “bad” and “ugly” of a low carb or ketogenic diet.

This is the 12th entry in the series titled “Making Health a Habit”, which can be found here.

Making Health a Habit picks up where A Dietitian’s Journey left off and provides general health information about lowering insulin resistance, keeping blood sugar at a healthy level, or maintaining (or building) muscle mass, or may simply be my opinion on different matters related to a low carb or ketogenic diet. Making Health a Habit are short videos (< 5 minutes in length) or short blogs on health-related topics and are quite different than Science Made Simple articles which are longer,  research-focused articles.

Feel free to leave your thoughts on social media after watching the video.

If you would like to know more about the issues discussed in this video, I’ve posted some links to articles I’ve written on the subject, below.

To our good health!
