Is the Atkins diet dangerous for seniors?
Many people are fond of keto diets. It’s advertised everywhere into reducing carbs in favour of protein; go for a ketogenic diet if you want to be healthy and lose weight quickly and with no effort. Well, lowering blood sugar and carb intake limits insulin spikes in blood, which can help lose weight and lower risks of lethal diseases such as strokes or diabetes.
It may prevent Alzheimer’s disease in seniors. But it could be problematic with the inherent feature of these diets that your blood sugar is constantly low. So you may hit fatigue and face metabolic and digestive problems, which in turn may be problematic in the long run. I suggest everyone, especially the elderly get professional consultation for such a diet.
