Sofia GarciaIs the Ketogenic Diet safe to follow?



The Ketogenic Diet is a low-carb diet, based mainly on fats and proteins. It is used by people who want to lose weight quickly but it has many side effects. Some of these side effects include nausea, indigestion, fatigue, and depression. The long-term practice of this diet could have serious complications to people's health and general well-being. Since this diet restricts the consumption of carbohydrates, fruits and cereals are also restricted. The human body needs nutrients that come from these foods, and a deficiency in them can lead to long-term health problems. The ketogenic diet is not safe for most of the population; people must consult a dietician or a doctor if planning to follow this diet. The best way to stay healthy is to maintain a balanced diet, consuming all the vitamins and nutrients the body needs.
