Despite the fact that the CDC still recommends that those with type II diabetes consume 225 grams of carbohydrates per day, doctors are speaking out against this recommendation as it keeps patients on the vicious cycle of diabetes medication requiring carbohydrates to prevent hypoglycemia, followed by needing the medication for insulin that is released after the consumed carbs. A recent meta-analysis which included 20 years of published research studying the effects of a ketogenic diet on patients with type 2 diabetes. The review concluded that ketogenic diet is ‘superior’ in terms of glycemic control—the results were significant enough to recommend the keto diet as a treatment for type 2 diabetes. Another recent study concludes that in addition to reduction in body weight and improving lipid profile, there was a significant improvement in HbA1c and reduction in the intake of insulin and oral antidiabetic drugs in patients with type 2 diabetes.  Not only does this research show how the keto diet can lead to weight loss and improved metabolic health, it’s also monetarily cost effective as it reduces the need for insulin and oral antidiabetic drugs. Lastly, our friends at Virta Health are doing incredible work reversing type 2 diabetes with their low carb protocols. One of their studies shows that this dietary monitoring protocol lowered glycemic control medication from 55. 7 to 26. 8% including insulin (-62%) and sulfonylureas (-100%). There was also resolution of diabetes (reversal, 53. 5%; remission, 17.

One panelist stated the diet could be dangerous for some while another cautioned those with heart disease, kidney disease, and severe diabetes against adoption of the diet. Counter: It’s interesting to note that a group of experts who rightfully admitted that a ketogenic diet can help with weight loss also ranked it low on safety. Further, a recent meta analysis examined 12 studies utilizing a ketogenic diet and saw no adverse effects.  Well, if sustained weight loss for two years following the study is an adverse effect, then I think it’s one that most people would be willing to risk it for. Lastly, it’s even been published and shown to be safe in children with intractable epilepsy. Moreover, the primary criticism (from the experts) regarding safety lies in the high-fat content.
come, despite the research showing persistent metabolic adaptations after the Biggest Loser competition–six years later!  This study showed that the majority of the weight lost on the show was regained, yet their metabolisms were still suppressed/slowed. Further, while I agree that exercise is extremely important, on the Biggest Loser diet
, it’s a “key part” of the success. So, in essence, this diet requires putting people on an unsustainable caloric restriction protocol combined with exercise to induce fast weight loss that is likely to be regained long term while also suppressing your appetite–and it really only works if you exercise enough to overcome your metabolism slowing down from the caloric restriction (aka Jillian Michaels screaming in your face). According to these experts, this diet/protocol ranks higher than the keto diet. Closing ThoughtsWe’re not certain why the keto diet doesn’t seem to get a fair shake when it comes accurately assessing and comparing the diet with others. Though often purported to only be beneficial for “quick weight loss,” a well-formulated ketogenic diet is so much more. Unfortunately, these experts missed the mark and the science when properly evaluating the ketogenic diet as well as several other diets involved
in this analysis. Lastly, one interesting thing to note is the owner of U. S. News is Mortimer B. Zuckerman.
