KETO DIET FOODS
Following the Keto diet and reaping all the rewards it has to offer is accompanied by one huge problem, what to eat!
People follow this diet for a number of health reasons like defeating obesity and diabetes. There are other reasons to use this diet plan, it will ultimately lead you to your ideal size and weight.
Don't expect a miracle over-night, I remind myself daily that I spent 65-years getting myself into this condition, I can devote a few months to trying to improve it.
DIABETES OR SOME OTHER MAJOR ILLNESS
If you have a major illness then you should consult your doctor before embarking on a diet change as comprehensive as Keto.
I personally do not believe Keto is a health hazard but I'm not a doctor and I don't know your condition. With all that said, check with your doctor but don't be surprised if he/she does not even know what the Keto diet is.
KETO FOR LIFE
Many people use some variant of the Keto diet to lose weight but then they return to eating low-cost carbohydrates that cause all their fat cells to swell and get large again.
Please note, the Keto diet is NOT the Atkins diet. Dr Atkins certainly understood the principles involved in low carb eating and made a name for himself but his recommendations were not the same as the Keto diet.
Don't eat Keto just to lose weight, follow this diet for the rest of your life and enjoy a healthy new you that will stay that way.
Carbohydrate intolerance is a fascinating term. It means your body does not like being fueled by carbohydrates and all the sugar variants. If you have a lot of extra fat on your body then you're probably carbohydrate intolerant.
Back in grade school we were taught that your body stored energy in fat for you to use later. But what if all you do is keep adding more fat? When does my body burn that fat to get that stored energy?
If your weight keeps going UP, UP, UP then it should be obvious you're not burning fat, you're storing it for some day in the future when it will make you insane.
If you do what you always do then you get what you always get. Keep eating low cost, low fat carbohydrates and your weight is certain to continue rising.
When you're ready to make a change the Keto diet plan is there to help you eliminate cheap carbohydrates from your menu. Get that total carb intake down to 30 grams or less per day and watch the weight go away.
The Keto diet is not new, it's been around since the 20's.
FINDING THE RIGHT KETO FOODS
By far the hardest part of following a healthy Keto diet plan is finding the right foods to eat.
Sometimes it seems all you can find are foods you should NOT eat, why is that?
It is because the big food packaging companies know you love the taste of sugar so they put it into almost EVERYTHING!
Sugar additives make foods taste like candy. The truth is, you should not be eating candy either, it's full of the worlds cheapest carbohydrates, it will spike your insulin response causing you to become more diabetic and it will expand the layer of fat residing on your person.
GET YOUR MIND RIGHT
Sugar, bread, ice cream, candy, soda pop, beer and many more items must leave your diet to enjoy the benefits of the Keto plan.
Delicious things you may not have been eating return to your diet through the magic of Keto. Sour cream, cream cheese and heavy cream are just a few of the delicious high-fat foods on the Keto plan. Heavy cream whipped up with a little Stevia sweetener is the best whipped cream on the planet.
REPLACE SUGAR WITH STEVIA SWEETENER
Stevia is an all natural, zero calorie and zero carbohydrate sweetener. It's available in powder and liquid forms (we love the liquid Sweet Drops).
We make our own sodas using seltzer water, Stevia sweetener and natural flavors like lemon and lime. These drinks are zero calories and zero carbohydrates.
