I have been skeptical of the keto diet. How can a diet that says you can eat pig fat but not an orange be good for you? I don’t think it can be, but most studies show that the health benefits of a lower body mass index offset any possible negatives. I recently had my annual check-up and found that I had lost 11 pounds in the past year. My doctor was elated and echoed what I had read about weight loss. He said that there is nothing I could do that will have more health benefits than getting to a healthier weight. Really? What about exercise, vitamins and rest? I assume they are all important, but just not as important as your BMI. So maybe I was wrong… In the final analysis, whether its keto or something else, do whatever works for you and get your body in shape. We all work hard to succeed and be among the best in our profession, why wouldn’t we work just as hard to be among the best in terms of health?
