Curtis Stone admittedly doesn't follow the celeb-favorite Keto diet slash lifestyle, which remains a controversial topic in the health community as concerns of long-term health effects continue to be raised. But what he knows of its core principles — excluding sugar and grains, consuming lots of good fat, keeping the carbs low and protein-moderate — appeals to him and feels relatively sound.

"I think it's a good healthy diet, there's nothing wrong with it, it’s natural," the restaurateur and Top Chef Junior. host told The Feast. "I think any diet that promotes two simple whole foods is the best way to go, and of course that's exactly where that's driving you — away from processed foods and away from highly refined stuff. I think grass-fed beef is the best protein you can have."

"So yeah, I think it’s a positive diet," he continued. "I don't know that it is a fad, they call it the caveman diet in some ways. I think that's great."

Curtis knows a thing or two about beef, by the way. His Los Angeles restaurant Gwen is a carnivorous delight that's centered around asador fire cooking of meat such at Blackmore Wagyu, a luxurious 100 percent full-blood Australian Wagyu beef. Gwen also has an in-house butcher shop that sells cured meats including bresaola, a dry cured beef.

You can watch Curtis and co-host Vanessa Lachey on Top Chef Junior, which airs Saturdays 6/5c on Universal Kids (catch up on episodes online — and get ready for the Season 2 finale on Saturday).
