Ketogenic Diets and Pain

Hi Steeldove, Be careful with the Keto diet. Although it can help in losing weight quickly, it is a very unbalanced diet. Also, keto weight loss often comes right back on, much like the Atkins diet of years ago. But the real problem is that your body can go into a state of ketosis, which is quite dangerous, and unhealthy. As far as the anti-inflammatory properties , perhaps it helps with this, but at the expense of a well balanced, nutritious diet. I would be scared to do this diet, personally. Good luck, and I know sometimes we just want to try anything to feel better!! Lori Renee

Did you read the medical article I sent with my post?

Ketosis is not a dangerous state, but ketoacidosis is. See https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/324237.php

Actually – ketosis is NOT dangerous. As a new member I am unable to post links – but you can do a quick Google search to confirm.

I did Keto for 9 months and lost about 15 pounds. When I went back onto a regular diet I did not put weight back on.
