3 Arguments Against Keto

We have 3 arguments against keto. Are they valid or not? Keep reading to see if you agree.

The ketogenic diet has recently gained significant popularity as a weight loss and health improvement tool. Many celebrities and influencers have endorsed the diet, further boosting its popularity. However, its popularity may vary depending on geographical location and cultural factors. Despite its popularity, the keto diet remains a controversial topic in the nutrition and health communities, with some experts endorsing it and others criticizing its potential health risks.

Here are three arguments against the viability of the ketogenic diet as put forward by its detractors.

Nutritional Deficiencies: 

The ketogenic diet can lead to deficiencies in certain nutrients, such as fiber, calcium, and vitamins B and C, as it restricts the consumption of certain food groups, such as fruits and vegetables.


The strict restrictions of the keto diet can make it difficult to follow long-term, leading to potential lapses and binge eating. It may also result in social isolation, as eating out and enjoying meals with friends and family may become challenging.

Potential Health Risks: 

For some people, a high-fat, low-carb diet can result in negative health effects, such as increased cholesterol levels, kidney problems, and an increased risk for heart disease. Additionally, the diet may lead to liver problems for those with pre-existing liver conditions. It’s important to consult a healthcare professional before starting any diet.

Do you agree or disagree? We’d love to hear your thoughts on the above.
