Each week seems to be something like study, celebrity, success stories of weight loss, the benefits of keto diet, right?
But, gradually, experts and fitness professionals go out equally to rally against it and warn of potential negative side effects.
And now the last to go to the anti-keto victory fitness gurus, PT, and author Jillian Michaels (he's the torn America coach The biggest loser known), who recently spoke Women's Healththat keto-diet is nothing more than a "bad plan".
In a video for publication, Michaels asked her for a number of healthy-topic topics, high-fat, low in carbohydrates, one of them. "I do not understand," said a 44-year-old boy. "Why, why does anyone think this is a good idea?" She goes on to say that keto diet is "a bad plan for a million reasons." "Your cells, your macromolecules, literally consist of protein, fat, carbohydrates, nucleic acids," she said. Women's Health. "When you do not eat one of the three macro elements – those three things that I have just said – you are starving your cells."
Her words apply to those who follow a diet low in carbohydrates. Although Michaels is all for carb alternatives, such as zoodles (zucchini noodles), it emphasizes the fact that there is no need for completely unfriendly carbohydrates: "If you feel you want a paste, the key is a whole grain, organized when can and work in a balanced diet ".
Michael is not the first expert to express his concern about the diet. Our myBody + Soul Dietitian, Melissa Meyer, explains that, despite some scientifically-based benefits, "there simply are not enough qualitative, long-term evidence that would recommend this diet for the general population."
Meyer agrees with Michael, explaining that digestion of carbohydrates is completely harmful to your health: "If you are restricting carbohydrates, you risk losing valuable nutrients that come from these products, such as healthy fiber, or calcium for strong bones and teeth Meyer also explains that preserving such a diet can be hard to sustain: "You have to flutter with morning muesli, a sandwich for lunch and your favorite roasted macaroni bread for dinner," she adds. "You can also say the area to break the wax on a starter Sunday brunch, and you can forget about the occasional night of pizza with your friends. In addition, you may even feel fatigue and bad breath when you go to a diet keto , it's even harder. "
Instead, Meyer emphasizes the importance of finding a flexible diet that works for you, without labels or strict food rules.
And hey, if Jillian Michaels looks like that and still eating carbohydrates, then we can not argue.
