Is a keto diet safe?

There is growing evidence to suggest the typical Western of calorie dense processed foods is not safe [1, 2]. The keto diet represents an alternative to the over-consumption of carbs and instead allows the body to use up fat stores and reduce insulin production and inflammation [3]. Any significant dietary change poses theoretical risks, but the majority of people who follow a keto diet see improvements in weight, physical symptoms, and physiological measures such as blood pressure and blood glucose. For some populations (children, pregnant or breastfeeding women, patients with organ failure and the elderly) the keto diet is not typically advised, but for the general population the benefits significantly outweigh the risks.
