While the keto diet typically allows for no more than 50 grams of total carbohydrates per day, most of the allotted
carbohydrates come from fibrous carbohydrates. For example, one can consume a cup of cooked spinach, two cups of chopped romaine lettuce, two cups of cooked broccoli, and ½ cup of raspberries in one day to achieve a total of 46 grams of carbohydrates, and whopping 24 grams of fiber. More fiber is likely to be added by way of other keto-friendly foods such as nuts, seeds, avocado, and dark chocolate. Keto is certainly not limited in the calcium department either—this myopic statement was likely made only because milk is not allowed on the keto diet due to its sugar content. Other high-calcium foods such as sesame seeds, Chia seeds, cheese, plain yogurt, sardines, canned salmon, almonds, and leafy greens are part of the ketogenic diet. Discrepancies in Top Ranked Diets of 2022We’re not here to belittle or degrade other dietary protocols, however if this analysis from the experts was predicated on scientific evidence, they significantly missed the mark. Let’s take Weight Watchers for example—this diet came in at number five for best diets overall. This is fascinating considering the University of British Columbia recently conducted a randomized trial which explored the results of those following a ketogenic diet versus the Weight Watchers diet. At the 12-week checkpoint, the group following the ketogenic diet achieved two times more weight loss than the Weight Watchers group. More significantly, the keto group lost three
times the amount of weight than the Weight Watchers group after 24 weeks and had substantial improvements in metabolic health. Cholesterol and other lipids showed no changes of concern.
