#04...about keto vs gluten-free diets
Welcome to my first solo-cast.
I’ll be trickling into the Karina talks too much podcast on the fly with issues I can’t wait to talk more about. The first topic for my premiere solo-cast is one that has been on my mind for a LONG time!
Hey guys, it’s me!
I’m staging a fight, and it’s between two popular wellness movements right now, keto VS gluten-free diets.
Listen in as I share some reasons why you may want to put off flirting with that illusive bad-boy Keto and stick to lifestyle changes that are realistic and sustainable, long-term.
Reasons why I think the ketogenic diet should not be used as a long-term lifestyle change:
eliminating an entire food group can be jolting to your metabolism, as mentioned in National Geographic Magazine article The Next Green Revolution . A great read if you’re into historical food facts;
mental health issues can pop up or become exasperated due to the severe limitations and restrictions it can pose on a person;
Long term effects: Harvard Health Publishing article on the ketogenic lifestyle and if it is heart healthy seem to echo’s what I mention in this podcast about dangers to your health long-term with this diet. Initially, keto can be great for quick weight loss but the long-term sustainability of this diet proves to be too difficult for reliable data to be gathered.

Thanks for listening and be sure to take a second to leave me a review over on my iTunes channel here! What would you like to hear me talk too much about next?
I’m just a girl who enjoys minding her business…literally.
I really like e-commerce, social marketing and sharing info and resources on gluten-free living.
I also really like a good “that’s what she said” joke…can you tell?
