How a Low-Carb Lifestyle Can Lead To Trouble
Play • 14 min

Low-carb diets work. They are more effective at weight loss and reducing health conditions such as high blood sugar, high blood pressure, even fatty liver. Whether you call it ketogenic, carnivorous, Atkins' or other version of a low-carb diet, the majority of people experience substantial near-term health benefits. 

But there are some issues to be aware of to prevent the long-term health deteriorations that can develop from such lifestyles. This is why diet is powerful but not enough for genuine long-term health. You must therefore address common nutrient deficiencies that result from modern life, exposures to various toxins in your food and environment, and address your intestinal microbiome.
