Article synopsis on improving/eliminating metabolic syndrome by switching to a ketogenic diet (breaking down fats). This also debunks the myth that complex carbohydrates are a "low metabolic stressor" for the body and thus a better option than fat for improved corticosteroid metabolism.

Vegetables and fruits are mostly not considered "carbohydrate" foods as their glycemic load is incredibly low.
