Hey! If we’ve never met before, my name is Lynette, and I help people be beautiful and healthy naturally through whole foods and natural remedies and in this video we’re going to deep dive into the dos and don’ts of the Keto Diet
So what is so good about the Keto Diet?
Here are the top three reasons why You might want to consider switching
1. It increases your mental alertness and energy levels 2. Because you feel full most of the time, you curb your cravings. You can achieve massive weight loss while on Keto 3. You can reduce your risk of heart disease and be free of diabetes, migraines, and acne and also reverse Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. All these, without medication. So what is the Keto Diet all about? There are three things for you to remember: the first one is the Keto Food Pyramid At every meal aim to have 70% good fat, 25% protein, and 5% carbs and by carbs, I’m referring to green leafy vegetables and all of that which you eat should not exceed 20 grams.
Yes! That’s your daily Carb intake. And then moving on to proteins, the number of proteins that you eat per day is your ideal weight in grams, so say if you weigh 50 kilograms, then you should not eat more than 50 grams of protein and then Finally, fat – three times your ideal body weight in grams. That should be your daily fat intake. So say if you’re 50 kilograms you times three, that’s 150 grams of fat to consume every day. Now if you didn’t get all of that no worries
let me break it down further for you to avoid starch and sugar and also avoid processed foods anything that comes in a package with a super-long ingredients list with hard-to-pronounce names or ingredients starting with the
letter “E” – those are chemicals by the way so avoid all of those okay and what you go for is wholesome foods, raw foods as close as possible to its natural source and also use natural spices to flavor your meals and eat more
Good fats: like butter, lard, olive oil, coconut oil, and always remember nature doesn’t make bad fat Alright! So now that you know so much about the Keto Diet, of course, the best-case scenario is if you can prepare your meals so that you are in full control of what ends up on your plate, and you can get creative with it you know you have to look for low carb alternatives so say, for example, you can replace your rice with cauliflower, you can return your noodles with zucchini strips, spiralized zucchini. You can also replace your tortilla wraps with lettuce, and you can also return
your regular flour with coconut or almond flour, so that is the best-case scenario but what if you don’t have the luxury of cooking at home you don’t have the time, and you always eat out Well, one way to go about it is to do the
Food Spa and by that, I mean washing your food in a soup to remove away the sauces that may have hidden starches or sugars, and another way to go about it is to order your food as is eat everything and leave out the carbs.
