But what is a keto diet?

Dr. Atkins Diet Revolution

I raise the question because, like many popular ideas, Keto has inspired factions. There are the people I’ve seen posting online that a keto diet is like Atkins, except you only eat clean foods, mostly organic. No artificial sweeteners or processed junk. Dr. Atkins Diet Revolution, first published in 1973, was and remains A ketogenic diet.

It had the nation, me included, peeing on keto sticks. How anyone got the idea that a keto diet is LIKE the Atkins diet, except tells me that they never read the book. Also popular is the book. lazy, dirty keto, which includes processed keto foods with grains, artificial flavors or colors or not. There is also a small faction of strict carnivores, people who eat only meat and perhaps eggs.

For some reason, it appears that many of these people stick largely to red muscle meats, mainly from ruminants. I have no problem with red meat, but I am quite fond of red meat. Poultry and pork, and I eat a lot of tuna. I also feel their nutrition would be improved by adding some organ meats, especially liver now and then.
