From Ketofest, 2018. By now we have plenty of clinical evidence of benefits from low carb, ketogenic diets, but we have limited clinical evidence for low plant diets. Why would anyone further restrict an already restricted diet, rejecting not only the vilification of animal fat and protein, but the presumed virtue of fruits and vegetables? The answer is that the number and types of anecdotes of clear and significant benefit is too large to ignore. Not only are many people finding impressive positive results from a shift to a plant-free diet, but many are experiencing remission of diseases considered progressive and incurable. In this talk I will discuss the practical differences between ketogenic and carnivorous diets, who might most benefit from excluding plants, and some ideas about why.
