Succeeding With The Keto Diet


The Keto Diet has become the latest weight-loss trend.

Some critics say the diet doesn’t have staying power, but a Houston doctor says if people with metabolic problems can be disciplined enough to maintain the diet, their health will improve.

The diet consists of almost no carbohydrates, just 20-30 grams per day. Dr. Steffanie Campbell, with Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, says the average American has about 40 grams per meal.

Instead of carbohydrates, the keto encourages a lot of fattening foods. Believe it or not, foods like sausage, eggs, ranch dressing, and cheese are helping people like jiu-jitsu trainer Michael Tracy lose weight.

“I was at 228 pounds, this morning I’m at 204 pounds,” Tracy says, noting he accomplished the weight loss in a little over two months.
