What is a Keto diet, in a nutshell?

If you choose to follow a keto diet lifestyle, the vast majority (70% or higher) of your calories will come from fat. It seems incredible, but magic happens when fat intake is high, and carbohydrates are low.

The magic is called ketosis, and basically it means that your body is given the message that you are starving, despite the fact that you can have all the sour cream you want. Low carb intake means that your body goes into ketosis, and begins to burn fat as fuel for your daily caloric needs.

Keeping carbs to a minimum is key, because as long as your body can burn carbs for energy, it will leave the fat alone. After fat, most of the remaining calories you eat will come from proteins.

This leaves you plenty of delicious options for ingredients for your keto diet. When you combine these, you will have an array of delicious meals and snacks available to you, guilt free.

Meat and fish, full fat dairy, oils, and nuts are some of the ingredients you can use to create keto appropriate meals. Sound unhealthy?

It can, but, thankfully, many kinds of vegetables are keto appropriate as well, so you can round out your meals with salads, and add these veggies to your fat based meals, as long as they are low in carbs, meaning you can lose weight, while keeping your diet packed with fresh, wholesome vegetables.
