One argument states that people may eat more poultry than average on the keto diet, therefore they are more likely to ingest campylobacter jejuni (found in undercooked chicken
) if they eat chicken frequently. Logically, one could conclude that all diets and nutrition lifestyles which incorporate chicken are drivers for GBS. However, one dietitian told the NY Post, “The amount of fruits and vegetables
that she’s not taking in can also mean that she’s not getting in enough phytonutrients to keep her immune system strong to fight off the campylobacter before it got out of hand. ” Nutrients on a Ketogenic DietThere are false claims stating that the keto diet lacks fruits and vegetables thereby leaving people “undernourished”. While a keto diet typically consists of less than 50 grams of carbohydrate per day, most of the allowed carbohydrates consumed come from fibrous foods such as vegetables and fruits like dark leafy greens, lettuces, cruciferous veggies, berries, avocado, olives, tomato, bell peppers, and even cauliflower. Guillain Barre SyndromeFor example, one can consume a cup of cooked spinach, two cups of chopped romaine lettuce, two cups of cooked broccoli, and ½ cup of raspberries in one day to achieve a total of 46 grams of carbohydrates, and whopping 24 grams of fiber. Now let’s compare that to the average American’s intake. The average person consumes only 1. 4 cups of vegetables and 0. 9 cups of fruit per day, and only 10 percent or less of those vegetables come from the dark green varieties.  Half of the vegetable consumption comes from potatoes despite the fact they are starchy tubers—even French fries are classified as ‘fresh vegetables’ by the USDA.
