  1. Hi, this is good information in a nutshell about Keto diet. I follow a healthy and natural diet on the Indian Ayurveda guidelines. However it is also interesting to know of other diets out there. Thank you for breaking down the article from the past to the future and the trends in our lifestyle.

    With regards to your comments on the intake of sugar and carbs, there was something about food that really got my attention on my last visit to Italy. Though the food is lovely and very appetising, I did notice that people eat too many pizzas and pasta dishes, which could be an excess and may bring about diseases. Thank you. Marisa
