What is the keto diet?
The keto diet or ketogenic diet combines the intake of foods rich in good fats and proteins with a drastic restriction of carbohydrate. So your body's fat stored are converted into ketones that feed your muscles and brain, instead of using carbohydrates for energy.
Optimal foods for the keto diet: meat, fish, eggs, butter, unprocessed cheese, seeds, healthy oils, avocado, low-carb vegetables ...
Forbidden foods for the keto diet: ultra-processed foods, sugary foods, cereals, rice, pasta, legumes, root vegetables, alcohol ...
3 tips to get into ketosis and start using fat for fuel:
TIP 1: INTERMITTENT FASTING
Intermittent fasting is a term that describes a period in which periods of fasting and eating alternate. By not eating food for a period of time, the body is forced to use its glucose stores and then start using fat for fuel.
TIP 2: EXERCISE
The sooner the glucose stored are used, the sooner the burning of stored fat begins. High intensity interval exercises or weights can help. But our advice is that you enjoy the exercise or sport that you like the most, sport = health, regardless of what it is.
TIP 3: #REALFOOD
The ketogenic diet just needs us to respect the correct macro. If the goal is solely weight loss, it will work regardless of the quality of the food, but health will suffer. Real food and if possible organic, is our recommendation.
