    Many fast-food restaurants, including Wendy’s (pictured), offer keto options. Erin McDowell/Business Insider The high-fat, low-carb keto diet tied for second-to-last place among 39 diets in US News & World Report’s annual rankings.  Despite increasingly popularity and ongoing, often encouraging research, experts say it can be risky to physical and mental health.  The diet is also difficult to widely endorse when compared to those that can benefit nearly anyone, but it may help some people, like those with diabetes.  “Modified keto,” new to this year’s rankings, also got a low score, with one outside expert telling Insider modifying keto makes it

For example, a study in the “Journal of Clinical Lipidology” suggests low-carb diets may not have meaningful long-term benefits for weight or heart health compared to other diets and could actually restrict foods that are good for your heart.

    A Scary Amount of Nutrition Science Has Deep Ties to The Food Industry, Study Reveals

    A nutrition journalist dieted his whole life and still gained weight. Then he tried the keto diet, and ‘it was like a switch being flipped.’

    Kirsten Lara Getchell/Courtesy of Penguin Random House Journalist and low-carb advocate Gary Taubes argues in new book “A Case for Keto” that mainstream nutrition advice leaves some people overweight and unhealthy by recommending too many carbohydrates. Instead, Taubes’ makes a case that low-carb diets can benefit people who react poorly to insulin by cutting back on foods that can cause a spike in blood sugar.  Keto may not be for everyone.
