There is a ton of hype surrounding the ketogenic diet. Some researchers swear that it is the best diets for most people to be on, while others think it’s just another fad diet. To some degree, both sides of the spectrum can be right. There is not a perfect diet for everyone or every condition, regardless of how many people have had success with it. The ketogenic diet is no exception to this rule. However the ketogenic diet also has plenty of solid research backing up its benefits. In fact, it has been found to be better than most diets at helping people with:

  • Epilepsy 
  • Type 1 Diabetes
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • High Blood Pressure 
  • Alzheimer’s disease 
  • Parkinson’s disease 
  • Chronic inflammation 
  • High Blood Pressure 
  • Obesity
  • Heart Disease 
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome 
  • Fatty Liver Disease
  • Cancer 
  • Migraines

Even if you are not at risk from any of these conditions, the ketogenic diet can be helpful for you too. Some of the benefits that most people experience are: 

  • Better brain function
  • A decrease in inflammation
  • An increase in energy
  • Improved body composition
