The difference between the ketogenic versus low carb diet is actually they’re both low carbohydrate but really the only difference is that the ketogenic diet recommends a moderate amount of protein. Most low carb diets have higher amounts of protein.
Problems with Higher Amounts of Protein – keto Vs low carb:
A lot of people have a damaged liver and don’t even know they have a damaged liver, as you start to build up too much uric acid in the body and ammonia, and you usually see that with foamy strong smelly urine that could be the waste because the liver and the kidney is not breaking down the protein properly so excessive amounts of ammonia can create all sorts of problems in the brain and the kidney.
This basically is a toxic effect of amino acids because your kidney liver is not able to break it down, you can also have a problem in your gut where your microbes are not able to break this down too, so we don’t want to add a lot of stress to the organs like even the digestive system, even the stomach, even the liver, or the kidney by adding a lot of protein. The body gets overwhelmed it can then create certain byproducts that are toxic to your body because your organs are not able to deal with that much protein
Low Protein Results:
If Protein is too low you can get really weak, you can have immune problems, muscle loss, hair loss, collagen loss, getting saggy skin, receding gums, so we just want the right amount of protein between three to six ounces maybe seven or maybe even eight per meal and we want that to be high-quality.
if you’re adding in minute fasting in there things are going to change because just the way your body adapts to the calories and it’s going to be more conservative with your protein, so you’re not going to require even as much when you’re doing in a minute fasting, but the common denominator of why a low-carb diet or ketogenic diet is healthy is simply because you’re in carbohydrates, and it’s the high carbohydrate diet that creates the most side effects especially to your eyes, to the lens of the eye, to the pressure the fluid in the eye, to the nerves in the eye and then we get damage to the liver with inflammation cirrhosis, and definitely a fatty liver, damage to the heart and the nerves and the brain so between these two diets, it is recommended the ketogenic diet. Just make sure that you’re doing the healthy version of the ketogenic.
