Healthy Metabolic States

Catch my latest contribution to the Ludwig von Mises Institute of Canada's blog, where I offer a dissenting view to Chris Horlacher's recent endorsement of a ketosis diet.

There, I conclude:
It’s important to keep in mind the real goal of diet and exercise: long-term health. “Long-term health” means being fit and free of illness for decades. That means having a healthy and sustainable diet and exercise regimen, one that you enjoy, one that poses few long-term health risks. While no one may ever agree on the “correct” percentage of calories that ought to come from fat, protein, and carbohydrate, it is important to stay aware the serious health risks associated with abnormal metabolic conditions.
