Eating nothing but lean meat is dangerous for your liver (too much excess nitrogen). If you actually did this, you would develop scurvy and eventually die from this diet (protein poisoning). Keto diets include fats.This diet should consist of nothing but beef or mutton and pure water.
Doesn't make much sense to call it that. By just eating meat you completely restrict yourself of ascorbic acid, which is able to mitigate intestinal inflammation. Low ascorbate levels are common in crohn's disease patients, and has been linked to intestinal inflammation in several diseases.a book called "Farewell to inflammation"
I forgot to mention that this diet was for 30 days. Do you think that will harm?Eating nothing but lean meat is dangerous for your liver (too much excess nitrogen). If you actually did this, you would develop scurvy and eventually die from this diet (protein poisoning). Keto diets include fats.

Keto is the dietary fad of the moment. Remember starch blockers? Or how about the Scarsdale Diet? Or the Beverly Hills Diet? Or the Blood Type Diet? The list of failed fad diets is endless.
Avoiding gluten as though it were cyanide was the dietary panacea of just a few years ago. Now it's fading fast. Avoiding gluten is still very important for patients who actually have celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity, but gluten's turn as the magical answer to any and all dietary questions appears to be over - replaced at least partially by Keto.
These dietary fads are meant to sell books and sometimes special diet foods or supplements. There is seldom very much real science behind them.
I'm glad you have seen improvements.Well, my husband has been diagnosed with Crohn's 15 years ago and has been on every medication under the sun. Healthcare is free here in the UK, so he just took what he was given without thinking about it too much. Lately medication wasn't working anymore and we ran out of options. We heard about medical diets and switched to the keto diet. My husband is now in remission... We haven't even started the medical diet yet, we just started with keto to clean up our diet before starting the proper diet. If you're interested, the diet we're gonna start is called the GAPS diet. There's nothing dangerous about the keto diet, loads of people are on it across the globe, it's only extremely dangerous for pharmaceutical companies, because when you cut carbs and sugar from your diet, a lot of auto-immune diseases get healed, no need for drugs. I started the diet just to support my other half, and it healed my migraines and chronic fatigue... So please, don't take it lightly and think this is just a fad, but do some research into medical diets, like GAPS or the specific carbohydrate diet, cause that's what the doctors use to prescribe their patients before the big drugs companies came about.
Onset of Ulcerative Colitis during a Low-Carbohydrate Weight-Loss Diet and Treatment with a Plant-Based Diet: A Case Report
Overweight and obesity are global health concerns. Various effective weight-loss diets have been developed, including the Atkins diet. The Atkins diet is known as an extreme low-carbohydrate diet. This diet reduces body weight and has gained widespread popularity. However, the metabolite profiles of such a diet have been shown to be detrimental to colonic health. Therefore, a concern for the long-term health effects of this diet exists. We encountered a case in which ulcerative colitis developed while the patient was following the Atkins diet.
A man, 172 cm in height and weighing 72 kg, at age 36 years followed a low-carbohydrate weight-loss diet. His weight decreased to 66 kg as desired. Thereafter he noticed bloody stool. Colonoscopy revealed diffuse inflammation limited to the rectum, and he was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis.
He underwent an educational hospitalization for ulcerative colitis. A plant-based/semivegetarian diet was provided during hospitalization. Bloody stool disappeared during hospitalization and he achieved remission without medication for inflammatory bowel disease.
This case indicates that an onset of ulcerative colitis can be an adverse event to a low-carbohydrate weight-loss diet.
