  1. Some may be able to reliably remain in ketosis even at higher carb intake levels. For instance, in the study below, healthy volunteers remained consistently in ketosis consuming 50 grams per day.

    However, those who are overweight or have baseline insulin resistance may require a stricter approach, limiting net carbs to 20 grams per day.

    This is based on the clinical experience of low-carb practitioners and was unanimously agreed upon by our low-carb expert panel. You can learn more about our panel here [weak evidence].

  2. Numerous studies demonstrate greater fat loss with a low-carb diet than a low-fat diet.

  3. Do you worry about eating saturated fats or cholesterol? There’s no good reason to do so. While still a bit controversial, repeated modern systematic reviews find no benefit from avoiding saturated fats, or replacing them with unsaturated fats:

    Here’s a study investigating if eating eggs for breakfast every day has any negative effects on cholesterol levels. They found none, but the egg-eating group reported greater satiety:

  4. It’s often claimed that eating breakfast is good for weight control. That appears to be false:

    Furthermore, reduced hunger is common on a keto diet, so many people find it easy to skip one meal:

    Read more in our guide to time-restricted eating.

  5. The main fear about lower-carb and higher-fat diets has always been a concern about the potential increase in the risk of heart disease. However, interventional studies so far indicate that if anything the risk appears to decrease:
