What Is A Keto Diet?
A keto diet is a high fat, medium protein, low carbohydrate diet that is used to help with weight loss and your metabolic state! This means that your body switches gears and instead of burning carbs, it focuses on burning fat instead. While on a keto diet, you go by how much net carbs are in a particular food!
Okay wait…what are net carbs though?
What Are Net Carbs On Keto?
Net Carbs are found by taking the total carbohydrates in a product, then subtracting the fiber and sugar alcohols from it. We remove these values because they are not broken down by your body for energy!
What Is Ketosis?
Your body goes into ketosis when you avoid carbs in your diet. When your body lacks the necessary carbs to burn energy, it turns to burning fast instead. Through this method your body creates ketones, which it then uses for fuel!
Types Of Keto Diet
There are different types of keto diets which indicate how many carbs you should have per day based on your diet purpose!
The Standard Keto Diet (SKD): restricts your net carb intake to 20 and 50 grams or less per day. This is the best choice for you if you’re just beginning your keto diet journey.
The Targeted Keto Diet (TKD): works well for individuals who have a more active lifestyle and need a bit of carbs to fuel their workouts. Allows for 20 to 50 additional grams of carbs per day, before and after workouts.
The Cyclical Keto Diet (CKD): works for professional athletes who are focused on muscle growth and performance. Follows the standard keto diet for 5-6 days out of the week, then for the remaining 1-2 days it focuses on higher carb consumption. In the 1-2 day period, you have the ability to consume 400-600 grams of carbs!
What To Eat On Keto Diet?
When on a keto diet, some foods you can eat are: unprocessed meat/fish/eggs, veggies, natural fats, sugar-free and high-fat dressings/sauces, low-carb high-fat nuts, natural sweeteners, unsweetened nut milks.
