The cult of keto?? Uh oh…

Blog

So now the Keto Diet has reached cult status! Why does everyone have to do this? If people want to eat this way and it’s working for them then leave them alone.

While some normal people might use keto judiciously to shed a few pounds fast, it also has a host of weirdly tribal followers. At the extreme end (#ketolife #yes2meat, #LCHF and the various keto and carnivore Reddit pages), it’s a magnet for angry, shirtless white men spouting ill-informed nutrition zealotry (I put it kindly).

Of course just because there are many nutters in the keto community doesn’t mean it isn’t a valid way of eating if it works for you and you take an informed opinion of the potential risks. But honestly? At the moment the hysteria isn’t supported by the evidence.
