Why I Can’t Support A Keto Diet (And Why I Created The M.A.D.E. Diet)

I’m sorry, I just can’t support the craze in following a keto diet…

But what I CAN promote is a higher fat lifestyle (and have for over 3 years now) but what I’m seeing – especially with the popularity of ketosis and a keto diet – is people choosing ANY food (or food-like substance) that is low carb.

Some of these “foods” are worse for you than bread and bananas! And where are the vegetables???

ANY “diet” that puts antioxidant, disease fighting green vegetables under bacon needs some serious WARNING labels attached to it!

A keto diet

The M.A.D.E Diet puts you into nutritional ketosis (which is what a ketosis diet is all about) – it’s a state in which the body can still burn stored fat but isn’t SO HIGH in ketosis you need to cut out or way down on vital foods like vegetables.

Now, I personally agree with limiting most fruits because today’s fruit is different. It’s been engineered to have even MORE fructose then it did a few decades ago because it’s sweeter (and more addictive that way).

I also don’t believe grains are worth their dense calorie count. The only benefit they really offer is fiber and you can definitely get more than enough with your veggies.

I promise, it’s not complicated: eat your ass full of organic veggies (mostly of the green hue). Decorate those veggies with butter, olive oil, coconut oil and some seeds and nuts. Don’t fear the egg yolk and have 1 or 2 small portions of humanely raised protein each day.

I’ve been studying nutrition for over 20 years and I am here to tell you that myself (and thousands of my clients) look and feel their absolute BEST when they don’t limit their vegetables. It’s about getting healthy…not skinny! Just like the Standard American Diet, disease can flourish when following a a keto diet…especially one so limited in plant based nutrition.
