What is the Keto Diet?
Back to the 1920s, doctors used the ketogenic diet to help patients with epilepsy.* Today, “keto” is a popular lifestyle followed by many. The ketogenic lifestyle focuses on cutting carbs. This allows the body to burn fat for energy.* Your body is in a state of ketosis when this happens.
Keto Diet for Beginners: What is Ketosis?
Keto diets vary and can be a big lifestyle change. Many find it beneficial to their total health. The body produces ketones in the liver, while in ketosis, to help boost energy levels and burn fat.* Research has shown increased levels of focus and energy as well as weight loss, but occasionally there can be negative side effects or what some refer to as the ‘keto flu’.*
Keto Diet Foods
The key to remaining in the state of ketosis is to avoid high levels of carbs. It’s common to keep carb intake to less than 50 grams.* The fewer carbs you eat, the more effective the diet will be. A helpful way to start is to start counting carbs, and we understand how difficult it can be. Stick with a list of foods and recipes that are ‘keto approved’ and you can be successful without counting.
