COVID-19 Driving Interest In Keto
« on: July 27, 2020, 1443 UTC »
Back in 2016, "healthy eating" was making Dr. Jeremiah Eisenschenk fat

"I started cutting carbs, increasing fats, and didn't do any exercise from November 2016 until May of 2017," he says. "I lost 25 pounds just by cutting my carbs and doing intermittent fasting. So at that point, I was like, 'I can't not utilize this as a tool for my patients.'"

Since then, the hospital medicine and board-certified obesity specialist has dropped another 15 pounds. With COVID-19 pushing the health cost of obesity and related metabolic conditions even higher, keto has now become the first tool in Eisenschenk's tool box.

"What COVID-19 has done, I think, is sort of exposed our vulnerable, baseline state of metabolic inflammation and dysregulation," Eisenschenck says. "One epidemic is exposing another"
