    I visited a gastroenterologist who told me that keto/low carb was not a sustainable diet or, in his words, a 'unphysiologically diet'. His view was that microbiome/gut health would be chronically upset on this diet.

    My dad, who is 64, was also told he was 'too old' for this 'diet' when he went in with stomachaches after 4 days on this diet.

    Interesting how many doctors don't agree with this diet.

    I have ignored the advice in favor of Dr Fung et al.
