The present study shows the beneficial effects of a long-term ketogenic diet. It significantly reduced the body weight and body mass index of the patients. Furthermore, it decreased the level of triglycerides, LDL cholesterol and blood glucose, and increased the level of HDL cholesterol. Administering a ketogenic diet for a relatively longer period of time did not produce any significant side effects in the patients. Therefore, the present study confirms that it is safe to use a ketogenic diet for a longer period of time than previously demonstrated.
This is important news.
The ketogenic diet is not harmful and promotes the health of those who live a ketogenic life style.
Hubby and I have been on this diet for almost a year and four months. We have lost 70 pounds between us and improved our lab tests, energy levels, sleep and have lost symptoms of some of our chronic disease such as psoriasis, arthritis.
We’re looking forward to a little more weight loss and health improvements as we age!!
It’s been great!
