(There seems to be a surge in promoting the Keto Diet, hence the Aqua Master is revisiting that subject with Dr. McDougall.)
Dr. McDougall explains that low-carb diets cause weight loss by making people sick. Ketosis happens when the body is starving, which isn’t a sustainable state to be in. Low-carb high-fat diets have also been associated with elevating cholesterol, blood pressure, as well as increasing the risk of developing heart disease and gout. No one wants to live in a state of sickness with no end in sight. Eating a low-fat, starch-based diet will help you lose weight while nourishing your body to optimum health.
