Question:

Is Atkins better than Keto?

Answer:

Atkins and keto are both low-carb diets that may benefit weight loss, diabetes management (strictly for a very short term), and heart health. However, we don't believe that the comparison is precise.

In all cases, the main difference is that you gradually increase your carbohydrate intake when on Atkins Diet, while it remains very low on the Keto Diet, allowing your body to remain on ketosis and burn ketones for energy. Though some people may benefit from the more restrictive diet, a moderate carbohydrates restriction - which takes place during the later phases of Atkins Diet - is sufficient for most to experience the benefits of low-carb diet.
