The ketogenic diet is monotonous


You probably think of Shakira's song when she says "it wasn't your fault or mine, it was the fault of monotony"?

Maybe she wasn't doing a very well-thought-out diet and it ended up being bored.

Ketone bodies are dangerous


First of all, we must not confuse nutritional ketone bodies with keto-acidosis.

Like many things in life, it depends on the amounts.

Saying that ketone bodies are bad is like saying that water is bad.

Would 20 liters of water kill us? Probably yes, but that is not the reason to say that water is bad.

Is it better to activate lipolytic metabolism or glycolytic metabolism?

Extremes are almost always inadvisable. A balance would be best, but always leaning towards lipolytic metabolism.

The ketogenic diet is good for everyone

Like any diet or nutritional guideline, it must be adapted and individualized for each patient.

Here is a dish based on the ketogenic diet that is not boring, very nutritious and very healthy.
