In the late 1800s, a Londoner discovered the first known precursor of the keto diet. William Banting became obese after he realized he needed to limit his food intake.
Banting cut out sugar, bread, and potatoes from his diet and ate only small amounts of meat and vegetables. He didn’t know that this diet would result in him losing more than 50 pounds. He was so thrilled with his results, he decided to share them with everyone. He created a free booklet entitled, Letter on Corpulence: Addressed to The Public.
Although this diet was not keto-friendly, it was a start. This way of eating was mostly ignored by the medical community, until it was revived during the 1920s.
The ketogenic diet was originally developed by Russell Wilder, a doctor at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. Although the idea of diets that included fasting from certain foods is not new, it was successful in controlling epilepsy at the time it was created in 1924. This was before anticonvulsant medication became available in the 1930s. The keto diet continues to be used for epilepsy control in children and other patients with pharmacological resistance, even after the introduction of anticonvulsant drugs.
The ketogenic diet was not popularized until many decades later. The National Keto Day was established by The Vitamin Shoppe in 2019 to educate and raise awareness about the ketogenic diet. Now is Keto Day, the day to celebrate this unique diet and learn more.
