A brief history of low carb nutrition. After 800 years can you still call Ketogenic diets a fad?

Here are some things you probably didn’t know about ketogenic diets. This list is not a comprehensive history, just some points of fact that you should consider as you research proper human nutrition.

Ketogenic diets encompass ANY diet that is focused on the removal/reduction of plant-based foods and the inclusion/prioritization of animal-based foods to optimize the nutrient intake and utilization of fat and protein by the body. 

Common types of diets that fall under this umbrella are, Atkins, Theraputic Keto, Ketogenic Diet, Carnivore Diet, Ketovore, etc… Throughout history, ketogenic diets have been used with great success to enable amazing feats of human accomplishment and cure disease. Even though it wasn’t until the early 1900’s that a name was given to the concept of ketogenic diets, they have shaped the course of human development since the dawn of time.
