Carbohydrates have been wrongly accused of being the “fattening” ingredient of foods, thereby misleading millions of weight-conscious people into eliminating nutritious carbohydrate-rich foods from their diets. In truth, people who wish to lose fat, maintain lean tissue, and stay healthy can do no better than to attend closely to portion sizes and calorie intakes and to design an eating plan around carbohydrate-rich fruit, legumes, vegetables, and whole grains.
For this assignment, I want you to do some research on the “Keto Diet”. Please write a 1 page (double spaced, 12 point – Times New Roman) abstract on the Keto Diet and the benefits and controversy surrounding this “diet fad”. This assignment is for your knowledge and if the “Keto Diet” is truly something people should be participating in. For any research articles found and used for this assignment, please cite them in APA style.
