The Truth About Keto – STOP!
This hot diet craze may strip you of vital nutrients. Here’s what to do instead…
The ketogenic diet is hot right now, but does it really work?
Keto fanatics claim ketosis can do a lot of things like:
- Curb appetite
- Promote rapid fat loss
- Increase athletic performance
- Fix tons of health issues
But is that even true? Is keto really THAT good for you?
The answer is NO!
If you think getting healthy by eating slabs of bacon… or blending sticks of butter into coffee sounds too good to be true…
… you’re RIGHT.
Claims about this diet have been blown way out of proportion. Even celebs like Al Roker and Halle Berry jumped on the bandwagon.
And that’s the problem.
Keto Can Cause Harm To Your Health
Restricting food on the keto diet in can give you nasty symptoms like:
- Brain fog
- Digestive distress
- Bad breath
- Skin rash
- Mood swings
- Hair loss
Keto followers dub this the ‘keto flu’. Any diet that has its own illness throws up red flags.
Imagine being told losing handfuls of hair is normal (HINT: it’s not!).
Sure, in a dream world we’d love to live on high-fat, highly palatable foods.
Steak dinner with fried eggs every night? Delicious!
An extra side of guac with that! Why not add more cheese?
But here’s the truth:
- According to nutrition and medical experts, keto is only right for a very small number of their patients as a short-term solution. For everyone else, it’s just plain pointless.
- Researchers say ketosis has little or no effect for many people. And it is mostly used for those with particular health needs.
- Some experts even warn that a ketogenic diet has numerous risks. At the top of the list: it’s abnormally high saturated fat intake.
- Other experts suggest instead of engaging in the next popular diet that would last only a few weeks to months try to embrace change that is sustainable over the long term.
Or in other words:
While Keto is a hot trend right now, it’s probably not right for you.
“But What About All The Success Stories?”
This is what a typically keto diet looks like:
- Carbs 5% or less
- Protein 10-20%
- Fat 70-80%
One of the biggest reasons people see success early on is the drastic drop in carbs.
Carbs carry a lot of weight in the body because they are surrounded by water molecules. So, beginners see drastic drops in water weight (also known as dehydration… not healthy!).
This might sound good, except…
The keto diet neglects complex carbs rich with beneficial fiber, vitamins, and minerals…
…like fresh fruit, a rainbow of veggies, and plant-based proteins like legumes, seeds, and peas.
And it also cuts down on PROTEIN intake, which plays a crucial role in fat loss.
The bottom line?
If you look online, you’ll see some crazy success stories on keto. Many of which are talking about weight loss.
But when you pull back the curtain, you see that the secret isn’t keto… it’s just that people eat less calories.
Which is why any diet is successful. In theory, the less you eat, the less you weigh.
But how do you cut calories without starving?
That is one advantage to keto eating… because fat makes you feel full longer so you can eat less and not feel hungry.
However, PROTEIN can do the same thing.
In fact, a study published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics showed that higher protein intake led to feeling full longer.
Meaning you can eat protein and stay full longer. Which means you eat less calories…
… and that’s exactly how keto or any other “diet” works.
Protein is an essential part of the diet because it is an important building block for bone, muscle, skin, hair and blood.
But the ketogenic diet lacks in protein because nearly all of your calories come from fat.
Obviously keto misses the mark when it comes to a balanced diet.
In fact, a recent research presented to the European Society of Cardiology Congress may be the final nail in the coffin.
Research performed on nearly half a million self-reporting participants shared two big findings when it comes to having a healthier life:
- Limit the amount of meat, dairy, and processed foods (all common in the keto diet)
- Eat more fiber-rich plant-based foods (lacking in the keto diet)
In other words, there’s no shortcut to healthy living…
…but there is a solution:
Here’s How You Should Approach Your Health and Nutrition
Balance is key. Not nutrient deprivation.
Going after fast weight loss leads to yo-yo dieting, which results in long-term frustration and health problems.
The reality is you need to live a balanced life overall.
At Truvani, we believe in the “Blissful Balanced Life” approach. It’s pretty simple. Eat plenty of fiber-rich fruits and veggies, cut out highly processed foods, and of course get enough protein in your diet.
The #1 Secret To A Balanced Life
We are seeing more and more healthcare practitioners recommend reducing animal protein like meat and dairy… in favor of a more plant-based diet.
In fact, a 2016 study published in JAMA showed that consuming just 3% less animal protein and replacing it with plant protein supports better overall health.
We know it’s tough to get enough protein in the diet…
Especially when trying to meet the daily recommendation of 0.8 grams / kilogram of bodyweight.
So, what’s the solution?
A plant-based protein powder.
A More Plant-Forward Diet Supports A Healthy Lifestyle
Plant-forward is a way of eating that celebrates plant-based foods but is not strictly limited to them.
If you’re like us, you might have tried a few plant-based protein powders and been turned off by the taste and texture.
They were chalky. They didn’t blend well. They had tons of additives.
They were hard to choke down.

We Found One Unique Source For Organic Pea Protein
Organic Pea Protein was the hardest ingredient to source in this new product, until we stumbled on one unique organic pea protein source…
Instead of turning a complete pea – pod and all – into pea protein, they would de-pod the peas first, and turn just the peas into pea protein.
Then, when we added it into our formulation, I noticed something else. The powder dissolved nicely. It tasted great.
And it made our new Organic Plant Based Protein Powder possible.
