Keto: The Definitive Guide
The What. The Why. The How

IN OUR UPDATED AND EXPANDED REPRINT OF THIS POPULAR PALEO MAGAZINE SPECIAL ISSUE, we dig deep into a single important topic: the ketogenic diet. Often confused with Paleo (which is definitely not inherently low-carb), keto remains an incredibly popular diet with hundreds of thousands of searches for it on Google each month. Like most trending topics, however, there continues to be a lot of bad information about keto out there—some of which can be pretty dangerous.

Our goal with this issue is to sort real information from Internet sensation so that folks who are interested in a ketogenic diet can decide for themselves whether it’s the best choice for them. We look at the pros and cons of the diet, as well as its potential applications for cancer treatment and prevention, longevity, brain health and cognitive function, women’s health, and athletic performance. Plus, we look at the important roles insulin plays in our overall health and consider some adverse reactions to keto that have been reported in studies, to help you determine whether this dietary strategy is something that may help you reach your goals.

As I’m sure longtime readers of this magazine already know, diets can be extremely individual, and keto is no different. What works for one person may not work for someone else, and vice versa. Let’s not forget that, for every person who has found success with a high-fat/low-carb diet, there’s another who’s thrived with a low fat/high-carb diet.

One thing remains true no matter what dietary regimen we decide to follow: We must fully commit. I’m not saying that cheating on a diet is unforgivable; I’m talking about being aware of the potential risks in adhering to a diet without taking it seriously. To reap the benefits of any diet—and, more importantly, to avoid injury and illness—one should do diligent research, carefully experiment, and possibly even enlist a professional to make sure the chosen diet is a healthy choice for one’s particular lifestyle and health. Without taking these steps, it’s very difficult to determine whether a specific diet truly works for us as individuals.

My hope is that this issue will be a valuable resource to help you in your research. The information in these pages provides a wide range of information on keto—the good stuff and the not-so-good stuff—that should help you determine whether it’s something that appeals to you and is ideal for your goals and current health, and whether you may want to seek out a professional to help you navigate it.

Finally, I want to thank all the experts who contributed to this issue. Without them, we wouldn’t have been able to offer this comprehensive look at one of the most popular diets of our time.
