The Ketogenic diet, or Keto diet, is a low carbohydrate, high fat diet that is supposed to offer health benefits and weight loss.

An oncology dietitian for St. Bernards, Briana Reynolds, had a very strong opinion about the diet.

“Anytime you’re severely restricting things that we like, obviously we’re going to have a decrease in calories but, we are really unsure about the long-term effects of those things,” said Reynolds.

Dietary guidelines say most calories should come from about 50 percent of carbs a day.
