The Pros and Cons of the Keto Diet
It seems like every week in health and supplement news, there is a new diet, or food and health and wellness trend, dominating the headlines and contouring blog narratives. Think back on it: Atkins. the South Beach Diet, Low-Carb, No-Carb, Paleo, Vegetarian, Vegan…the list goes endlessly on and on.

It’s not all candy and gumdrops (because obviously, it can’t be if you want to drop those few pesky pounds), but it’s a viable option, especially if you don’t want to outright give up your favorite foods. It just requires a bit of willpower and mind-over-matter — you’re just receding your intake of those foods and snacks, which is way better.
