By replacing most of the carbs in our diet with fat, proponents say it can fast-track weight loss, curb appetite, treat various health ailments and increase athletic performance.  The diet originated in the 1920s as a treatment for epilepsy, but became trendy in the fitness industry among those trying to shed and shred. Celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Kim…
