Wow this person totally rips into keto, what do you think about her argument?Bad Diets
The diets listed here are unhealthy, especially for an athlete. These diets do not provide enough calories, nutrition, or the right kind of fuel. They strain body organs. Instead of improving health, they risk destroying it. The longer you are on these diets, the greater the risks become.
These diets, including the Atkins Diet, the Ketogenic Diet, the Zone Diet, and the Scarsdale Diet, are extremely popular because of the quick water-weight loss that occurs at the start of the diet. This water-weight loss is mistaken for fat loss, and it quickly returns as soon as the dieting stops. These diets make you look thin and trim because eating proteins is dehydrating, and causes large amounts of body water loss. Although bodybuilders might follow these diets to look more defined, they quickly gain the weight back after competition when they stop dieting. Aerobic athletes, dancers, and performance athletes cannot function effectively on these diets because protein and fats are a terrible source of performance fuel, and the body requires extra water and calories to break them down.
High-protein, low-carbohydrate diets cause a state of ketosis, chronic dehydration, low appetite, bad breath, and also nausea and depression. These diets are especially dangerous for people with high blood pressure, heart disease, and kidney problems. They can also cause gout. High-protein diets also cause your body to lose calcium, increasing your risk of fractures and osteoporosis. In athletes, the oversupply of protein puts a tremendous strain on your kidneys, which are already stressed by the breakdown products of intense exercise and occasional dehydration; combining these two types of stress on the body can be very dangerous. Also, by missing out on healthy fiber and vitamins found in fruits, vegetables, and grains, you are putting yourself at greater risk of heart and blood vessel problems, digestive problems, and many types of cancer. Women who go off the diet in search of more normal eating tend to immediately gain back weight as the water weight returns. Also, studies have shown that these diets do not cause weight and fat loss any quicker than other types do over the long term. So why take the health risks?

I think she's an idiot. She also probably goes to the gym, does 4 hours of cardio, and goes home. "What's a dumbbell? No you can't lift that, you can injure yourself.

Bad breath - So bad breath is either a result of **** rotting in your gut and spices, or your mouth. Too bad there is no blue-minty antiseptic product with which one can rinse 1x or 2x a day to control whatever smell ketones might create
Dehydration - If only there was a way to consume more than 8 8oz glasses of water in a day. Unfortunatley we are physically limited to 64oz of water total a day.
Nausea - It disgusts me how someone can loose weight, drop LDL, raise HDL, and maintain discipline on a diet full of bacon, steak, and chicken wings. Dont even get me started on people who wrap their chicken wings in bacon. Nauseating habit.
Increased risk of heart disease - True story. Every time I see that rib eye is on sale my heart skips a beat
Mood changes - Those jerks with level energy all day long piss me off. I like to roller coaster my mood and energy, how dare you ketoers not have insulin spikes
Increased risk of cancer - This is probably true. If you live longer because you do not get heart disease because your cardio-vascular system is **** hot, you'll have to die of something. Cancer is as good as anything else.
Poor endurance - @ above 65% BPM. Compete with me at a 10 minute mile and I will run you into the ground until I get board. Then I'll come back and walk back with you.
Increased bone loss - I do think there is a lot of bone wasted on keto. If I knew how to eat the bones in spare ribs I would, but I must toss them all. Breaks me heart (which is more of the heart disease issue)
Digestive problems - It is a serious issue to consume 12-16 oz of veggies a day and virtually no processed foods. Get you ass back on Kraft Macaroni and Cheese!
May cause gout - May do a lot of things. My increase likely hood of walking on the moon as well.
Nutritional deficiencies - This one I won't even be sarcastic on. I am loosing weight. This puts me at a caloric deficit. Some my I do actually have a nutritional deficiency as I am not getting enough calories to maintain my body weight.
I think the list is legit. (I pulled it off the linked site)

I can't possibly take this person seriously after the opening statement, "These diets do not provide enough calories, nutrition, or the right kind of fuel".
btw, if you're interested, here is one of my favorite articles on why keto is good. It actually uses science and logic. http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/...-brain-ketones

Ketogenic is bad if you don't drink enough water to dilute the high levels of uric acid.
I did it instinctively for 3 months but I was active on an automotive assembly line and always drinking water. I ended it when I discovered vegetables. Now I eat a mixed diet of whole foods.

Actually this persons statements are correct. The main source of energy the body uses is carbohydrates. So when the body does not have it is has emergency back ups like ketones, amino acids, and etc. to get energy. Now what the persons comments are saying is what a great deal of the dietetic community believes and is proven by research. If you were to actually look at the U.S. dietary guidelines they recommended a diet containing mostly carbohydrates for a reason.
