华人闲话 (in English) My Wife Is Mad At Me, For Eating An Apple!
Have to get this out of my chest... My wife has become a Keto diet freak, under the influence of her BF ("闺蜜") in China who is a true Keto faithful. Her bf doesn''t read English, but reads many many books by Keto gurus (usually American) translated into Chinese, and has been on the diet for at least over a year, lost a lot of weight and enthusiastically, maybe even religiously, promotes the diet plan.
I am sure this thing, like many things in life, has its pros and cons. What I don''t get is some of the unconventional ways it wants us to eat: for example, skip breakfast, and also avoid fruits (maybe even vegetables). It seems for the Keto, not just sugar, flour but carbs of any kind, must be avoided at all costs.
You are left with just protein and fat in the food groups. I don''t see how this way of eating can be sustainable or beneficial to your health in the long run.
