Many are aware that ketogenic diets offer a plethora of health benefits. For those unfamiliar, a ketogenic diet is one which contains very little – if any – carbohydrate. Vilhjalmur Stefansson ate nothing but meat for one year, after being inspired by living with the Inuit, and seeing their remarkably low rate of disease. Stefansson saw no ill effects from a year of an all meat diet, with basically zero carbohydrate. He also consumed no vegetables. It is worth noting, that he also became very ill when he consumed only low fat meat, and nothing else. When he added the fattier meat back in, he immediately felt better. The many reported benefits of the ketogenic diet include, but are not limited to: less hunger while dieting, improved cognitive function in those who are cognitively impaired, improved LDL cholesterol levels, improved weight loss, and improved levels of HDL cholesterol. When we look to the scientific literature, we see that the anti-inflammatory nature of the diet has been studied for many years. This newly published research looks specifically at the ketone metabolite beta-hydroxybutyrate, which seems to inhibit the NLRP3 inflammasome. The NLRP3 inflammasome also drives the inflammatory response in several disorders including autoimmune diseases, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, atherosclerosis, and autoinflammatory disorders.

I’m pretty sure every other nutrient is covered adequately on an all-meat or mostly-meat diet. Lieb, M. A clue to what was happening in this “Turkey Study” could be found in the potassium balance data provided in this report. Hello, I had a gastric bypass 16 years ago and I want to know if it is still possible to be zero carb? A high total cholesterol to HDL ratio drops rapidly a positive benefit with dietary changes such as replacing refined carbohydrates with healthy high fat foods. Other than that study, we really have no concrete evidence to support the benefits. Explore All Recipes Topics.
