What Do I Think About A Vegan Keto Diet?
I was asked about what I think about a vegan keto diet by Live Science.
Those of you who know my thoughts on the keto and vegan diets know that I am already not a fan of either. Combined? You can imagine what I am going to say.
Why Is A Vegan Keto Diet A Bad Idea?
Would you do it if I said that eating a certain way would toxify your liver, disrupt your metabolic functions and digestion, and disturb your sleep?
If I told you that the same diet also increased your appetite and hunger, depleted your body of nutrients, and put you in a low mood, wouldn’t you wonder what diet this is?
Then, note that the same diet leads to chronic systemic inflammation in your body and a compromised immune system and opens it up to one or many diseases; what would you say?
That’s the vegan keto diet! Say no more.

A vegan diet by itself is not enough for optimum health. A keto diet is extreme and opens up the body to long-term disease. For optimum health, I advise a diet focusing on gut health as a priority.
I do have lots of delicious vegan recipes on the anti-inflammatory lifestyle. Here are a few that you may like to try:
I serve them with fish or animal protein (or by themselves).
It’s all about balance and moderation!
Look after your health. It is your most valuable asset. Please don’t mess around with it. Think long-term, not a quick fix.
Have a super day!
