The ketogenic or ‘keto’ diet has been getting more and more popular over the past couple of years, and if you’ve been on a diet recently then it’s likely that you will have heard of the keto diet before. It can be a great way to weight loss, and the ketogenic diet has been a life-changing new choice for many people – could it be the next great thing you do for your health?
Ketogenic Food Facts
Here’s more information about the keto diet and just why you should care.
Fact: What Keto Really Means
Ketosis in simple terms is a natural metabolic process that everyone’s body does: Basically, it’s when your body derives most of its energy from fats instead of carbohydrates and sugars – and this means that your body is fueling itself in a completely different way. For many people, this leaves them feeling more refreshed, full of energy and losing weight.
The Keto Diet is Low in Carbs and High in Fat
The whole point of the keto diet is keeping your diet low in carbohydrates and higher in fat. Foods that are particularly high in carbohydrates include grains, potatoes, pastas, starchy vegetables and sugar – or anything that coverts back into sugar in the body. You want to increase your consumption of high-fat foods at the same time, and make sure you go for the “good fats” – those found in avocadoes, meat, eggs, cheese and many types of seafood.
Living Healthy with the Keto Diet
The keto diet is a great way to stay healthy, and you should combine your changes in diet with other healthy lifestyle changes for the best effect on your health. This includes things like going for a regular check-in with your doctor at least once every six months, and also includes things like moderate exercise – you don’t have to become a weightlifter, you just have to be more active, and you’ll feel the change in your life in a few weeks!
