Keto Diet Guide

 An Ultimate Guide to Keto Diet

It’s safe to say the keto diet has increased in popularity over the years. Many are adopting this
regime not just for weight loss but for the substantial benefits it brings to health.
The keto diet bucks the trend when it comes to diets and there is even reason to suggest it
works better too.
If you’ve been hearing lots of great things about the keto diet and want to know what it’s all
about, I’m going to run through with you the fundamentals to help you build a better
understanding; therefore think of this as your guide to the keto diet.

What Is the Keto Diet?

The keto (or ketogenic) diet is a meal plan which emphasizes heavily on a low carb regime.
Cutting out carbs means it’s backed by a high fat and moderate protein intake. The keto diet is
said to help you effectively lose weight with health benefits. 
You may have heard of the Atkins diet. This diet plan follows some of the basic principles of
keto at the offset although it gradually introduces more carbs towards the final phases.
So, what’s the deal with the keto diet?

In simple terms, the keto diet switches the body’s fuel supply. Reducing your carb intake
encourages your body to divert from its conventional source and instead burns fat for energy.
So, has this got you wondering how this is all possible? Well, it’s with a little help from a
metabolic process called ketosis.
What Can I Eat on Keto Diet?
When starting out on the keto diet, it can take a little while to get used to what foods you can
and can’t eat. Therefore, it’s always best to plan ahead.
Remember to focus on foods that are high in fat, moderate in protein, but most importantly –
low in carbs. To make it a little easier for you, here’s a quick round-up of what keto friendly
foods you can go for:
πŸ‘‰ Meat and poultry
πŸ‘‰Fish and seafood
πŸ‘‰ Eggs
πŸ‘‰ Full fat dairy
πŸ‘‰ Natural fats
πŸ‘‰ Low-carb veggies
πŸ‘‰Nuts and seeds
πŸ‘‰ Healthy fats/oils
πŸ‘‰ Low carb fruits

Meat and Poultry

When opting for meat, you pretty much have the green light on what to choose but grass fed
varieties are the best option. The same applies to poultry as carb content is non-existent.
Fish and Seafood
Fatty fish like salmon, tuna, or mackerel are all good sources of fatty acids, protein and low
Not only are eggs a “go-to” for any dieter, they are also a keto-friendly food you can enjoy.
Full fat Dairy

On a keto diet you need to ditch the low fat yogurts and go full fat. This includes cheese, cream, and butter.

Low Carb Veggies

You have to be careful with your choice of vegetables because some are very high in carbs.
Keep to veggies like asparagus, celery, or leafy greens.
Low Carb Fruits
Fruits are another area of caution because many of them contain high levels of sugar. However,
there are a few low sugar options – like berries – which are allowed.

Nuts and Seeds

Nuts are a great source of fats, which is why they make the list; however just be cautious which
ones you go for. Walnuts, macadamias, and almonds are good choices. Make sure they are in
their natural state too and not coated with sugar.
