New year, new dieting craze. The ketogenic diet is the latest in popular diets in the US. It shares many similarities with the Atkins diet; it’s low-to-no carbs, some protein, and a lot of delicious fat.

The keto diet isn’t exactly new. It’s been used to treat epilepsy since the 1920s, and it’s had promising outcomes from treating Type 2 Diabetes. However, epilepsy and diabetes aren’t the only reason people give the ketogenic diet a try. It’s also used as a diet for weight loss. The diet banishes most carbs, including fruit, and opts-in for fatty foods like avocados, salmon, eggs, cheese, butter, oil, and the holy grail of fatty meats — bacon.

Unfortunately, science has not yet proven the keto diet to be the miraculous cure to losing weight, that some kept devotees claim it to be. The more extreme a diet, the harder it is to adhere to, and though the diet may be beneficial to some, that does not mean it will work for all who give it a try. is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what’s really driving the events in the headlines.

  1. Thanks for the video. It really helpful. I'd share that it help me a lot losing a weight with this amazing product I think it can help others too.

  2. it's helpful to know what you're getting into! I've been a little over 12 MONTHS, I'VE DROPPED 125 POUNDS I love it. So, I thought sharing my experience would help others. IT'S CHANGED MY LIFE ☘️☘️ I FEEL LIKE I'M IN MY 20S AND I'M IN MY 40S☘️☘️

  3. "The best diet is the one you can stick with". Okay, I'm heading to McDonald's. Thanks for making me feel good about my hypertension!

  4. Do you offer a shred of scientific evidence for the idea that keto doesn't really work? I had angina in 2019 and was overweight. In 2020 I lost 15 kg in the first six months and 22 kg overall by the end of the year. This was entirely due to keto. I never felt hungry and it has become a part of my life. I am a "live to eat person" Keto has so worked for me. It has cured my hypertension and I take no heart meds. So please, before you claim to debunk this do some research.

  5. It's funny coming from an obese lady ???? Don't know about others but keto worked wonders for me

  6. Should probably have someone who has done keto explain keto for your channel. Not some random ironically overweight woman

  7. Ya. I see your diet is working….lol. ill stick to keto dieting……thank you very much. P.s. watch Dr BERG on "You Tube". #1! (Pharmaceutical) loves this video because of "monetary reasons"- again NO THX….????

  8. Anybody know what is Okibetonic Secrets about? I hear many people lost a ton of weight with Okibetonic Secrets (just google search it).

  9. Every year I try different diets and all of them are kind of the same, move and eat less processed stuff, and sugar, all of them work… but keto has been the one with fastest results for me, I managed to lose my belly in just 4 months… normally it takes me more to get the same results, it is a really good diet if you need to get some results fast

  10. When I was 10 I liked fish, fatty pork and eggs but my parents made me eat a lot of bread and salted everything.

  11. I'm slim. Always have been. Eat a high card processed food diet for 30 years. Two dead kidneys, a triple bypass and a heap of research later I'm on KETO and my bloods are fantastic.

  12. Very lame explanation of Keto. Vox, you should consider having less opinions and more facts. You should take this video down and re-record with more up to date information.
