The ketogenic diet is all the rage, and there is no shortage of books, blogs and recipes on the subject. But is it safe? Maybe in the short term, but it is not a healthy long-term approach to weight loss. Side effects include constipation, brain fog, potential nutrient deficiencies, and even smelling like old beer.
Just One Thing to do: For many of the benefits without the side effects, limit your intake of all simple carbohydrates, including soda, energy and coffee drinks, juice, and refined grains such as bagels, doughnuts, sweet cereal, crackers, pretzels, cookies and white pasta.
