Keto diet warning as nutritionist says it can be ‘more harmful’ in long run for some groups of people – Daily Record

There are so many different diets out there that it can often be bewildering for anyone looking to get in shape or at least shed a few pounds. It seems everyone is looking for the secret to losing weight without having to go without their favourite foods and cherished treats.

That's one reason why the much-vaunted Keto diet has won over so many fans - among ordinary dieters as much as TV celebrities. The popular diet, you see, is fat-heavy, with advocates claiming you can still indulge in the odd hamburger or bacon roll.

Nutrition expert and author Lauryn Lax at, the fitness website, warns that the Keto diet is not for everyone. She goes onto explains that, in some cases, it can actually do more harm than good.

Revealing why some diets may not be working for their adherents, Dr Lax said: "Having a better diet is often at the forefront of many peoples minds, however, with so many different types of diets, it can be overwhelming to know the right way to achieve your nutrition goals."

Lauryn suggested that some groups of people may find that the keto diet may not work as well for some women. In some instances, 'women who have issues with their blood sugar or insulin resistance have found ketogenic diets beneficial as a short-term dietary approach'.

'However, women who have their blood sugar under control, but have some adrenal fatigue or hormone imbalances, have found a ketogenic diet more harmful in the long run.'

In these instances, she suggests that certain bodies may react better to other diets, with some doing better with more carbs, while others do better with more fat.

She also outlined key aspects that may be the reason behind why your diet isn't working, including not eating enough berries or citrus, or not paying enough attention towards your food when it comes to chewing or assessing your level of hunger. Being stressed about you diet could also have an effect.
