Breaking news this week about the Keto Diet! A new article in the Lancet Journal associates low carb diets and animal products with increased mortality!

I have actually been doing the keto diet for the past 6 weeks, so I was very interested to read about these results. By the end of this video you will understand what this new article is saying and be able to make an educated decision about your diet!
