Move Over Paleo, Keto is the New Diet Darling

If #holdthebun, #bodybybacon and #verylowcarb have been popping up on your social media feeds, you probably know that the ketogenic diet—better known as “keto”—is trending. Developed to treat epilepsy nearly a century ago, the fat-friendly regimen owes its recent popularity to the promise of rapid weight loss—up to 10 pounds the first week, and one to two pounds per week after that.

The duo personally cooks every order of crawfish-stuffed beignets, jambalaya, étoufée and poutine, as well as makes every po’boy. “Even the roux for gumbo,” Leininger says, “which I whisk on the stovetop for forty-five full minutes. Even in the summer. In a metal box with no AC. It’s brutal. Maybe we should think about hiring someone?” he says, looking over at Mullins.
