The controversial Keto diet could become a requirement for our U.S. military, especially or Navy Seals and other special ops units.
U.S. Special Operations Command out of MacDill Air Force Base is revealing results of a study involving the Ohio State University ROTC cadet population, that recommends the Keto diet to enhance military performance, and combat obesity.
Basically that means more lean meats, and healthy fats like avocados, and less beer and pizza. The Keto diet only works if the body is in a constant state of ketosis, and is monitored with daily urine or blood tests to track glucose or ketone levels.
The study comes amid growing concerns about obesity among service members and the potential threats to readiness. Critics questions whether the military has the legal and ethical right to control and monitor a service member’s diet 24/7.
