Brad has been working on women’s weight loss his entire adult life! He would like to tell everyone the good, the bad, and the ugly truth about the keto diet. Keto first came out to help treat epilepsy, then respiratory failure, and then other diseases. There are multiple risks with the keto diet you must understand. One of the risks is the side effect known as the “keto flu.” Another risk is the nutrient deficiency, dehydration, and electrolyte imbalance that your body will face. These risks along with others not mentioned are reasons that people have such a difficult time maintaining the diet and ultimately stop doing it.
