The Keto or Ketogenic diet has become popular lately but was invented in the 1920's. It was used for short term weight loss and the treatment of epilepsy. More recently it is being investigated as a treatment for a host of neurological disorders. This diet has been incorrectly labeled everything from re-branded paleo to atkins light but it has a unique place among other diets. I have been using the keto diet as part of a treatment for the neurological autoimmune disease, Multiple Sclerosis with excellent success. It is an extremely strict diet and is not for the feint of heart but offers many rewards. My inner geek loves that this diet is also a true bio-hack.
Keto As a Bio-hack
There was a movie in the 80's called “The Abyss” that showed humans ingesting a gel called “Breathing Liquid” that stored oxygen and allowed them to breath under water. Keto is a similar type of hack, allowing your body to become more versatile in how it processes food.
Some Advantages of Keto
A Ketogenic diet offers a host of blessings in weight loss, health, and neurological advantages.
This page is dedicated to my ever-evolving appreciation for the ketogenic diet.
What started as a zany feasibility experiment for patient care became a personal transformation experience that I can't help but ramble on about.
So for those who are curious - welcome to my take on what I've come to call 'body-hacking'.
