If you saw my "What I eat in a day" video you know that I've been including fruit and honey in my diet for a while now and feel much better with these... In fact, I'm going to go so far as to say that I have a number of concerns about long-term ketosis and don't think this is a great thing for most individuals... Maybe there are a few out there who can manage this, but for most thyroid, sex-hormone, electrolyte and glucose issues develop over time with a ketogenic diet... Before you get your keto dogma panties in a bunch, watch the video - you might just learn a thing or two! And this is not to say that I don't see value in ketogenic diets for some individuals (epilepsy, parkinsons, other neuro-degenerative disorders), or to begin treating diabetes... But long-term eating in this way may have many negative consequences. Please repeat after me: carbohydrates do not cause diabetes, carbohydrates do not cause diabetes... Results over dogma. Reclaiming your birthright to radical health is what this is all about. Not getting stuck in a label of one sort or another. #theremembering
