What is Keto?
Ketosis describes a metabolic state in which your body burns fat more efficiently and experiences increased energy levels. Achieving ketosis involves drastically reducing your consumption of carbohydrates and replacing them with fat.
Ketogenic diets convert fat in the liver into ketones, which can supply additional energy to the brain.
Research indicates that ketogenic diets may offer a myriad of health benefits
Ketogenic diets can cause significant reductions in blood sugar and insulin levels, making it helpful to some diabetics. Ketogenic diets have also proven to be an effective weight loss regiment, and may offer some health benefits to individuals suffering from cancer, epilepsy, and Alzheimer’s disease.
How to Get Started
The two main types of ketogenic diets are standard and high protein.
A standard ketogenic diet calls for about 70% fat, 20% protein, and 10% carbs, while a high protein diet uses a ratio of 60% fat, 35% protein, and 5% carbs.
Once you’ve determined what your daily consumption of fat, carbs, and protein will look like, you can create meal plans to fit your diet.
Fatty foods like meat, fish, eggs, nuts, and healthy oils are supportive to a keto diet. Conversely sugar, starches, fruits, and beans are counterproductive to achieving ketosis.
Avoid Unhealthy Dressings
It’s important to note that keto diets can easily be broken by adding high carb or high sugar “extras” to your meals. Unhealthy condiments like ketchup, BBQ sauce, and teriyaki can quickly put you above your daily limits.
