Just when we thought we couldn’t pimp out the keto diet anymore (c’mon, when are we going to say goodbye to it?), this week the latest and greatest rendition of the high-fat low-carb diet has made its grand entrance: the Dubrow Keto Fusion Diet.
The Real Housewives of Orange Country duo Heather Dubrow and her husband, plastic surgeon Terry Dubrow, MD, made headlines last year when they released their book The Dubrow Diet: Interval Eating to Lose Weight and Feel Ageless, along with a diet of the same name.
Now, in the latest post on Terry’s Instagram, he’s given us a sneak peek into what we can expect from this mysterious new Dubrow/Keto fusion diet:
“THE DUBROW/KETO FUSION DIET is here! A BREAKTHROUGH diet for the rest of your life! Based on REAL science,” he captioned the video with.
The video provides a short explainer as to how they came up with the name. Basically, you and every other person around you, Googled ‘Keto diet’ (#1) and ‘Dubrow Diet’ (#2) the most times over the past year, so it was only logical to give the people what they wanted and combine the two.
While nothing else is known about this “breakthrough” fusion diet, a link in Terry’s Instagram bio takes you to US online retailer Evine, which sells two Dubrow/Keto Fusion Diet products: Appetite Satiating Shakes and Primo Celery Organic Powder. Yes, there’s no escaping celery either (*cue eye rolls*)
It’s all very vague, but besides the suss marketing products, all we can think is that it’d be as simple as just combining the two diets together. Just a little FYI: the keto diet focuses on eating large amounts of fats, moderate protein and little to no carbs, while the Dubrow Diet centres on three phases of ‘interval eating’ that the duo claim has a myriad of health benefits – from weight loss, improved energy levels, promotion of hair growth to anti-ageing properties.
What is key about Terry and Heather’s take on this fusion diet is the fact that in previous interviews, the two haven’t been shy to voice their hatred towards the keto diet: “I think the Keto Diet — no offense to those who like it—I think it’s kind of dumb. Physiologically… as a doctor… it’s really dumb,” Terry previously said. Tbh, we don’t disagree…
Here’s to hoping the Dubrow Keto Fusion Diet is the revolutionary step towards long-term weight loss sans the ridiculous amount of bacon, butter and ew, don’t even get us started on bulletproof coffee.
