do not listen to this Keto garbage. It is not not sustainable and destroys your organs.
Can you provide some citations for your claims? And I don't mean a link to Durianrider's Youtube channel. I also don't mean a link to a "doctor's" website where some guy with no background in clinicial research is using his labcoat to get people to think he knows something about nutrition, when really he just likes animals or thinks veganism will save the planet. There are an equal number of doctors who will tell you that going keto, or at the very least low carb/high fat, is the best diet solution.
find me one time in history where humans ate low carb diet. it does not make sense genetically. Nevermind if you are seeking athletic performance. The doctors you are referring to are just pushing their own agenda, all the unbiased research is extremely clear.
Go read this book and the studies referenced. The science is obvious, if you want to ignore that go ahead, it your own health you are putting at risk. it is pretty obvious looking at the western diet there is a huge problem. People being fat and obese is a new phenomenon. Now you want to treat these problems with these ridiculous diets like Keto? How anyone can be against plant based eating is beyond me.

Not arguing that a plant based diet is wrong or bad, in fact it is healthy. However, humans benefit greatly from eating meat.
Until agriculture was developed around 10,000 years ago, all humans got their food by hunting, gathering, and fishing. As farming emerged, nomadic hunter-gatherers gradually were pushed off prime farmland, and eventually they became limited to the forests of the Amazon, the arid grasslands of Africa, the remote islands of Southeast Asia, and the tundra of the Arctic. Today only a few scattered tribes of hunter-gatherers remain on the planet.
Eating meat is thought by some scientists to have been crucial to the evolution of our ancestors’ larger brains about two million years ago. By starting to eat calorie-dense meat and marrow instead of the low-quality plant diet of apes, our direct ancestor, Homo erectus, took in enough extra energy at each meal to help fuel a bigger brain. Digesting a higher quality diet and less bulky plant fiber would have allowed these humans to have much smaller guts. This means that from the time of H. erectus, the human body has depended on a diet of energy-dense food—especially meat.
we have a small handful of foraging populations that remain on the planet. So far studies of foragers like the Tsimane, Arctic Inuit, and Hadza have found that these peoples traditionally didn’t develop high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, or cardiovascular disease.
A Stone Age diet “is the one and only diet that ideally fits our genetic makeup,” writes Loren Cordain, an evolutionary nutritionist at Colorado State University, in his book The Paleo Diet: Lose Weight and Get Healthy by Eating the Foods You Were Designed to Eat. After studying the diets of living hunter-gatherers and concluding that 73 percent of these societies derived more than half their calories from meat, Cordain came up with his own Paleo prescription: Eat plenty of lean meat and fish but not dairy products, beans, or cereal grains—foods introduced into our diet after the invention of cooking and agriculture.
Fast-forward a couple of million years to when the human diet took another major turn with the invention of agriculture. The domestication of grains such as sorghum, barley, wheat, corn, and rice created a plentiful and predictable food supply, allowing farmers’ wives to bear babies in rapid succession—one every 2.5 years instead of one every 3.5 years for hunter-gatherers. A population explosion followed; before long, farmers outnumbered foragers.
Over the past decade anthropologists have struggled to answer key questions about this transition. Was agriculture a clear step forward for human health? Or in leaving behind our hunter-gatherer ways to grow crops and raise livestock, did we give up a healthier diet and stronger bodies in exchange for food security?
We hve both sharp teeth and molars, pointing to a diet in both meat and vegetation. versatility is key to the human dietary niche. It would be pointless to try to emulate a single ancestral diet: there wasn't one. Humans have continued to evolve since the Neolithic Revolution, and many of us have enzymes that our ancestors did not have, enabling us to digest starchy foods effectively and digest milk as adults.
