In this video, I want to talk to you about how to respond to a keto critic. You may come across some keto naysayers or ketogenic diet critics. What are you supposed to say to them? 

If you’re wondering how to respond to ketogenic diet criticism, this is what you need to do:

1. Don’t defend yourself.
Instead ask what their solution is to problems like diabetes.

• They may say a healthy diet should be one approved by the USDA, AHA, or ADA. But, the dietary guidelines for the USDA are 65% carbohydrates.

2. Ask why 200-300g of carbs per day is healthy.
With keto, we recommend only 5% carbohydrates, which comes out to only about 20-50g of carbs per day.

Healthy keto is the healthiest thing you can do. When responding to criticism, you really want the keto critics to start looking at the huge carbohydrate problem in relationship to the health problems that we have.

Ketogenic diet critics often don’t even know what a ketone or ketosis is. People are afraid of what they don’t understand. 

If you ask keto naysayers what a ketone is, they may know it’s something related to ketoacidosis. But, ketoacidosis will only occur if your blood sugars are over 300. This is not the same as a healthy person dropping carbs and getting the body to make more ketones.

Ketones are:
• The byproduct of fat burning
• An alternative fuel
