Keto diet= good or bad

    I question whether keto is healthy. If someone is extremely overweight there are other serious health concerns that need to be corrected making keto an excellent option. However carbs are needed by the brain for maintaining and adding new synapses. Carbs also help improve our moods. Many decades ago I tried Atkins and lost a ton of weight.

    Today my focus is on calorie count and eating low added sugar food. Eating low added sugar has kept my appetite in check. I feel great. It means I eat fruit and other foods with naturally occurring sugar. I believe I am protecting my brain. In fact my carb count is low but reasonable. I am losing weight fairly quickly. With my appetite in check I will be able to make this a lifestyle change.
