Diet advice to help you keep your 2019 resolution

If improving your diet is one of your resolutions for 2019, not all diets count the same when you are counting calories.

Doctors say that the ketogenic diet, a popular diet in 2018, may create issues for dieters.

The restrictive diet calls for people to cut out carbs, as well as most fruits and some vegetables.

A dietitian with Mayo Clinic Health System says the ketogenic diet may help you lose weight, but you may be losing more.

“It’s very restrictive, which can lead to nutrient deficiencies, and I think one of my big issues with it is that it can lead to a really disordered pattern of eating,” said Jamie Pronschinske, Registered Dietitian, Mayo Clinic Health System.

The registered dietitian does recommend the Mediterranean diet, which focuses largely on plant-based proteins.
