There is a lot of misinformation today about ketogenic diets and the effect they have on your hormones. This is partially because its a fad and partially because its being talked about A LOT and people that produce contrary products need to speak out against it in order to keep selling their products… When you are seeing people talk about the research that implies that ketogenic diets have an adverse effect on your hormones they are actually talking about LOW CARB research….That is not the same as ketogenic dieting and that research. Look I am not saying that ketogenic diets are GREAT for everybody or even appropriate for 95% of people that are on them but REALLY REALLY do your research and fully understand what you are reading. I have lived keto for many many years now. It is the only effective solution for my hormone and adrenal issues. It is hands down the best thing I have ever done. When people say it is not sustainable that is just not true. When people say its complicated to follow properly no not true either; once you know your plan you just eat it. When people say you can never have a treat thats not true, you have them on occasion. There are MANY great books out there please read…..

Tanya Pennington many who claim keto ruined their metabolism, hormones or adrenals didn’t actually do keto either. Keto is not just ALOT of fat in your diet. It is specific. AND keto is NOT high protein. Low carb definitely makes people feel terrible …

And understandably so. I went to KetoCon last weekend and learned a plethora of information. And yes, many relate keto too closely to Atkin’s and think it is unlimited protein when it’s quite the contrary, especially compared to the traditional comp prep diet.

Amazon has both The art and science of Low Carbohydrate Performance and The art and science of Low Carbohydrate Living.

Body Opus is REALLY old school and will scare you…but take it in context to when it was written. Low Carb Performance is my FAVORITE of the 3

Awesome info. I just got done reading some science based abstracts on this very subject and I agree with you Sharon Polsky. As consumers we need to research and look for ourselves we have no excuse to be in the dark any more with the info. and resources out there.
