“Keto Crotch” became a viral meme in the media and was widely disseminated on social platforms. It’s a repudiation—in very personal terms—of the popular trend toward low-carb and Keto diets. But something’s fishy about Keto Crotch—there are strong indications that it’s part of an organized campaign to impugn the low-carb movement, which is gaining major popular inroads, and is threatening the bottom-lines of powerful commercial interests like Weight Watchers, pasta and bread makers, cereal companies, the beverage industry and other purveyors of carbs.
