January is the time of year where we traditionally tend to revisit our wellness goals. This is when gyms are packed, diets are starting, and if you listen verrrrrry carefully you can hear the sound of a rumbling stomach out there lamenting to the tune of “Fat Bottomed Girls” by Queen. So majestic.
But despite the number of new diets that pop up every year, some of them have real staying power. A great example of this is the Keto diet. This diet has a cult-like following who chatter on endlessly about its ability to help with weight loss while allowing you to still eat pepperoni, bacon, and cheese. What the what?!
The keto diet achieves these results due to the fact that it’s a low-carb diet. This means no bread, sugar, and even fruit is on the shit list. Again… WHAT?!
However, despite the naysayers, this diet has gotten folks the kind of results that they won’t be shy telling you about in the break room every day for the next 3 months. As to whether it’s actually healthy or sustainable in the long-term? No comment.
Despite where you fall on the debate about keto, at the very least we can have a few laughs at a diet that allows you to stuff your face with pot roast, as long as you don’t have pineapples for desert.
What a time to be alive.
