Meanwhile, you've probably noticed that the ketogenic diet is controversial. The trailer arms of the nutritional plan (with countless metamorphoses) make the promise of fast weight loss quite enticing (much of it is water weight, BTW). Not to mention that there are people who feel that the diet could be the cure for a variety of illnesses. At the same time, some experts and studies are warning about it and claim that the side effects and the lack of balance are not worth it.
If you're considering trying it out for yourself, the bottom line is: Before you make a major lifestyle change like this, you should consult a doctor. And while keto is a viable option for you, it may be worth exploring other eating styles, such as mindful eating and intuitive eating, or IIFYM or macro counting. (Some experts also advise against following the diet for a longer period of time, so carbohydrate cycling may be more appropriate if you're considering a form of keto.)
