  1. I started Keto and even thou I’m not making my kids do it they just naturally end up doing it with me. They are actually gaining weight while I’m loosing. I do the interment to fasting where I only eat between 10am-6pm, so we wake up around 7-8 and they eat breakfast (usually cereal or something they can make themselves)while I do my morning exercises, when they are done with breakfast they normally join me, at 10 I make my breakfast, I make enough for everyone, and they will eat again with me, I make our lunch which is normally some sort of meat and veggies, we eat whole fruit as a snack (strawberries, blueberries, cherries, etc.) they have yogurt always in the fridge that they can eat as a snack, then I make a healthy Keto dinner for everyone. I’m a busy parent I don’t have the time to make 2 separate lunches and 2 separate dinners so my kids just eat whatever I make and can snack and around when they are hungry. All my kids are making their weight milestones and exceeding their developmental milestones.

  2. People on keto eat fiber. Low carb vegetables. As far your body needing sugar your body makes glucose. AKA sugar. If they are eating enough protein you don't need to consume the carbs.

  3. Actually whole grain anything is bad for kids because it blocks zinc which is essential for brain development.

  4. Shame on you Cracker Jack box doctors. Pediatricians are a joke and spend hardly any time studying nutrition. It is a known FACT that your body creates the glycogen it needs.

  5. "Almond butter on whole wheat is an amazing snack for children and adults!"

    Unless you have…
    – type 1 diabetes
    – type 2 diabetes
    – prediabetic
    – celiac disease
    – metabolic syndrome
    – autism
    – hypoglycemia

    …or any of the other growing prediagnosed conditions which are growing rapidly in childhood from the SAD diet.

  6. I’m a tween I’m 13 and I’m on the keto diet I am losing pounds slowly but i see that my hair is fulling out more ,I get dizzy more , I tend to have chest pain , or I get bloated , and sometimes I get really tired

  7. Reading the comments, it's funny how many "regular people" know more about nutrition than these doctors.

  8. Wow, she is painfully wrong. Decades old, antiquated science being taught in medical school.

  9. This doctor is only there because she looks good. Do your research it's not true you need carbs for the brain.
    In my family we lowered the carbs I agree with the other doctor he said the same.
    My son 11 years for the first time he is regularly in the bathroom every day. Now even more energy, and he sleeps better

  10. I’ve gotten rid of all the junk in my house. My stance is, if kids were fine before the SAD diet was popularized, they’ll be fine now. I know 2 children on keto to help with seizures….they’re alive, healthy, and have been seizure-free for a while. My 16 year old has lost 20 lbs and has reversed hypertension. I’ll take keto ????????
