5 People that NEVER Should do Keto & 5 People that NEED it

The ketogenic or keto diet is an approach that involves eating fewer carbs, which leads to improvements in blood sugar, weight loss, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels (**).
In short, it can help improve important health markers.
But while the keto diet has many research-backed benefits, it doesn’t work for everyone. Many individuals feel much better on keto while others seem to notice only a few improvements, apart from weight loss — or simply find it too restrictive for their lifestyle.This carb reduction forces your body to deplete its stored glycogen (the storage form of glucose) and mobilizes fatty acids, increasing your ketones (*). These include beta-hydroxybutyrate and acetoacetate, which are the two main ketones, and acetone, which is the least abundant (*).
By replacing carbs with fat and teaching your body to rely on its fat stores (through ketosis), individuals experience steadier energy levels.
This is the opposite of depending on carbs for fuel, which tend to cause blood sugar highs and lows — a common occurrence, especially among people with diabetes or pre-diabetes, and who are sensitive to carbohydrates.Individuals who can greatly benefit from the keto diet include those who need help lowering their blood sugar levels and losing weight.some people consider keto diets as restrictive diets for the reason that keto impairs their athletic performance. While research shows that the keto diet (and supplementing with ketones) help endurance athletes, sprint-type or high-intensity aerobic exercise may be compromised on keto (**).
That said, if you’re a marathon runner or long-distance cyclist, there’s a higher chance you’ll benefit from keto — compared to someone who regularly does high-intensity workouts that engage fast-twitch muscles (*).
