5 Other Experts (Besides Jillian Michaels) Who Are Against the Keto Diet
They want you to do the unthinkable...eat carbs.
A lot of people, and I mean a lot, think the ketogenic diet is the best thing since sliced bread (how ironic). Celebs like Halle Berry and Jenna Jameson have put the high-fat, low-carb regimen in the spotlight, and the trend doesn't seem to be dying down any time soon.
But keto enthusiasts aren't the only ones who have strong opinions about this eating plan. When asked about going keto, celeb trainer Jillian Michaels recently said, "I don't understand. Like, why would anyone think this is a good idea?" Okay then! Read on for more anti-keto thoughts from Michaels, and what five other experts and influencers really think of the keto diet.

If there's one thing we know for certain, it's that Jillian Michaels will never be trying keto. The celebrity trainer didn't hold back when asked about it in a video for Women's Health: "Your cells, your macro molecules, are literally made up of protein, fat, carbohydrates, nucleic acids,'' she said. "When you do not eat one of the three macro nutrients, those three things I just mentioned, you're starving yourselves. Those macro nutrients serve a very important purpose for your overall health and wellbeing. Each and every one of them."

A few months ago, Dancing With The Stars pro Witney Carson told Women's Health she tried going low-carb, but it was a serious letdown. "I've done keto before, and I felt really gross," she said. "I did lose weight on it, but my skin broke out. I have eczema and my eczema was super, super bad. I think I have an allergy to dairy and cheese, so I try to stay away as much as I can now."
