All my friends are going keto to lose weight. I've seen them lose some weight, and google says that it might be healthy for me as a prediabetic obese person but it feels crazy to restrict your diet like that and I don't know if it's "safe for fat people" the way all the other shit like lapband or starvation dieting etc is "safe for fat people" or ACTUALLY safe. I've been fortunate enough that I've never dieted but being around friends who eat like this is making me feel like I should.
Don’t drink the diet industry Kool Aid! Even if all your friends are doing it!
Please read my “dieting” and “weight loss” tags for all of the reasons you should NOT diet! Low carbohydrate diets in particular are incredibly unhealthy, as your body needs carbohydrates to function. You are fortunate you have never dieted! So keep it up. Your longterm health and well-being will be so much better off.
