    Question Ketosis, healthy and sustainable?

    Considering all the possible benefits of staying in ketosis, I was wondering:

    1)Is it healthy for a thin 15-year old to start ketosis?

    2)Is it sustainable anyway?

    3)If I ditch fruit for vegetables, would I stay as healthy but in ketosis?


    Thanks

    P.S: Can't find fancy organic foods but a lot of varied local conventional vegetables and olive oil.

    If you are healthy and thin, there is no reason to be in ketosis. Why would you want to?

    And, at 15, you're still growing. You probably need more protein and carbs than someone older who is trying to lose weight.

    Eat some of all the Primal approved foods, proteins, starches, veggies and fruits and relax. Enjoy your youth.

    It's perfectly sustainable. But as this forum will show you, debate still rages as to whether it is healthy.

    For right now, because of your age, unless you have a medical necessity to be in ketosis, I agree with Paleobird's advice.

    And, Derp, the next time you try to accuse me of pushing ketosis on everybody, think about this. This is the second person in as many days that I have advised to stay clear of it.

    Yes, it is sustainable and it works great for a lot of people. It is not, however good for everyone under every circumstance.

    So ketosis may or may not be healthy, but it is hardly good for me, got it

    P.S: A lot of vegetables and an apple every day is enough to stay out of ketosis?

    If some of the vegetables are starchy tubers, like potatoes and sweet potatoes.
