In this podcast, I’m going solo to talk about ketogenic dieting because it’s getting more and more hype these days for losing fat, gaining muscle, and improving general health and well-being.
The question, of course, is whether or not it can live up to its reputation, and as you’ll see, my current answer is no, it can’t. I’ve done quite a bit of research on it, and my take is that keto dieting makes sense for certain people under certain conditions, but these people are in the minority, and you’re probably not one of them.
Here are a few of the things you’re going to learn in this episode…
Why what commonly passes for “ketogenic dieting” in the fitness space isn’t true ketogenic dieting.
Why the ketogenic diet can help you lose weight faster — in the short term at least — but probably can’t help you lose fat faster.
Why the ketogenic diet isn’t optimal for gaining muscle and strength, and why a high-protein & high-carb diet is better.
How the ketogenic diet can benefit your overall health and well-being.
How to know whether the ketogenic diet is right for you or not.
