Keto or Vegan, which is healthier?
a brand new study compared the 2 and measured their health benefits
people on vegan diet ate 7x more carbohydrates yet they lost fat. those on keto did not lose significant fat over the 1st couple weeks
that’s not to say u cant lose fat on a low carb diet. Ofc you can.
point is it’s not the carbs that make you fat. the subjects eating vegan were going to town on carbs and yet they lost fat faster
You CAN lose fat by cutting carbs. you can lose fat by cutting any food, any source of calories. Carbs, fat, even protein
I have nothing personal against keto or vegan
people on the vegan diet were satiated faster and ate less calories, in all likelihood that’s why they lost fat
“I gotta lose some weight, I should cut carbs, right?”
When’s the last time you heard that?
focus less on nutrients, the carbs and the fat and the protein. It’s about food quality
Refined carbs make it easier to gain weight
Complex carbs make it easier to maintain or lose weight
So if by “cut carbs” u mean cut candy, great move
because it’s an artificial product not bc it’s “carbs”
Otherwise next question is “oatmeal has a lot of carbs, I should cut that too”
And we all get confused into general carbophobia
more health benefits
the vegan diet lowered cholesterol but it raised triglycerides. LC diets like keto tend to do the opposite if they’re animal based
So again the key is the type of food not if its high fat or low fat. Both can be healthy
diet wars on social media, keto vs vegan, are a distraction
Vegans and low carbers have been fighting for years
health-wise: a vegan diet can be great or it can be terrible.
Same for keto. it can be healthy, lots of greens, high in fiber, or it can be unhealthy, with processed meats, low fiber and high saturated fat
So the whole vegan vs keto war is social media smoke
So to ask which is better, vegan or keto, it’s nonsensical
having an abundance and variety of unprocessed plants, that’s the golden rule. A healthy diet can be vegan or not, low carb or not, keto or not, it can be low fat, high fat, medium fat, many possibilities, pick the one that works for you and ignore the social media noise
