Although the common denominator of all keto diets is low net carbs to induce ketosis, not all keto diets are created equal. In fact, traditional ketogenic diets do not differentiate the type of food to consume. Many times, they include processed, genetically modified foods, gluten products, unhealthy trans fats, and synthetic vitamins. This gives keto a bad rap. Traditional low-carb, high-fat keto’s primary goal is usually rapid weight loss or a reduction of epilepsy symptoms and not necessarily good nutrition. As a result, you could lose weight or reduce certain symptoms but become less healthy overall.
Any type of ketogenic diet, by limiting net carbs, also reduces your fat storing hormone – but why limit yourself when there are an impressive variety of long-term health benefits, which await you?
To distinguish Dr. Berg’s keto program from others, he coined the term “Healthy Ketosis.” It’s based on the following guiding principle:
It’s not Lose weight to get healthy,
it’s Get healthy to lose weight!
Healthy KetoTM is groundbreaking because it emphasizes obtaining your required nutrients from high-quality foods such as organic vegetables, full-fat organic dairy, and wild-caught, grass fed, pasture-raised meat, fish, fowl, and eggs —all with the goal of getting you healthy to lose weight rather than losing weight to get healthy.
