Let's face it, there are lots of misconceptions out there about the keto diet. People haven't done their research. People relied too easily and what their friends tell them. In fact, too many individuals, who would otherwise benefit from this amazing diet, let Facebook comments and link shares discourage them.
This really is too bad, because if they only knew, they probably would benefit quite a bit from the keto diet. What benefits? Well, imagine eating fatty and greasy foods with a clean conscience. I know, sounds too crazy to be true. Well, that’s exactly what you get with the keto diet. You can indulge in your ‘guilty’ food pleasures and not have to worry. Keto enables you to melt off your fat by, you guessed it, eating fatty foods. What’s not to love?
Another key benefit keto brings to the table is its inflammation fighting properties. Please understand that inflammation is bad news. The reason why the Standard American Diet (rich in carbs) is making so many people sick is because it is an inflammatory diet. You end up bloated because your carb intake sucks up so much fluid. I wish I can say that this is the extent of the inflammation you suffer from a standard high carb diet. Nope. Not even close. Not only do you bloat up because of all that extra water, your nerves, cardiovascular system, kidneys, even your skin all bear the brunt of all that extra water. Your blood pressure remains elevated, your skin starts to wrinkle up, you end up suffering from brain fog, I can go on and on. To say the least, inflammation is bad news. When you switch over to a keto diet, you cut down dramatically on carbs. This means there’s less water absorbing hyper spongy carb molecules in your system. Not only will your body start expelling your ‘water weight’ (which is great news for people trying to lose weight), you will also get better skin. All that inflammation weighing down on your skin and prematurely aging and wrinkling it disappears.
