What is the Ketogenic Diet?

This article was adapted from the bestselling book The Ketogenic Diet by Kristen Mancinelli MS, RD

The ketogenic diet has gotten a lot of criticism over the years for being a diet where you basically eat bacon and butter all day long. “Even if you do lose weight,” people say, “that just seems unhealthy!” It is unhealthy! And it’s not a smart way to go about a ketogenic diet.

The ketogenic diet consists of a mix of high-quality fats and protein foods, like avocado, chicken, salmon, almonds, and olive oil, as well as non-starchy, vitamin-rich vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, spinach, lettuce, tomatoes, and mushrooms. So-called indulgences, like red meat, fullfat cheese, and egg yolks, are also allowed. The diet eliminates sugar, flour, starch, fried foods, sweetened beverages, and low-quality processed foods. This last part shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone familiar with nutrition: try losing weight while eating sugary, floury, fried foods! It’s not a winning strategy.
