Going Keto? Here’s what to know…

Updated: Apr 9, 2021

So you’ve decided to go on the Ketogenic diet - Keto diet. 

No more nasty carbs for you! As from now on, you’re going healthy and getting yourself that body you always dreamed of. What a great way to start your health journey? Well… it depends. 


Despite its popularity, research on the long-term benefits of a keto diet is still relatively low. Some researchers are even calling it downright dangerous.

The highest evidence - we currently have - has shown that low-carb diets can reduce your lifespan by up to 5, some say 10 years!

So don’t just join the fad before knowing all the facts first. 

To help you make a decision for your health, I’ve made a short list of some of the main pros and cons of the keto diet. 

The pros: 

1. It will make you eat more natural products 

The Keto diet offers a mouth watering list of foods to pick from (cheese, poultry, red meat, avocados, nuts, olives etc…) and practically none of them are processed foods. And, since it’s so anti-carb, you’re also waving bye bye to flour based processed foods (white bread and roti, I’m looking at you) which when consumed in excess is bad for your health.
