Long term Ketogenic study

One of the main barriers to anyone taking up the Banting/LCHF/Keto lifestyle is skepticism and the fear of harming one’s health with too much fat and too little carbohydrates. A healthy skepticism is a good thing. We must always be open to questioning our beliefs, but finally here is a study to put everyone at ease.

In short a 24 week study was done on 83 patients limiting their daily carbohydrate intake to 30g, their protein to 1g/kg of bodyweight, and enough fat to feel satisfied.

The results speak for themselves:

  • The weight and body mass index of the patients decreased significantly
  • The level of total cholesterol decreased
  • HDL [good] cholesterol levels significantly increased
  • LDL [bad] cholesterol levels significantly decreased
  • The level of triglycerides decreased significantly
  • The level of blood glucose significantly decreased.

Here are the results in black and white:
