What Is Ketosis?

The Keto Diet is often labelled as extreme. Nothing could be further from the truth. Your body prefers burning fat for energy and it is the preferred source in your brain and muscles, and it has some remarkably positive results for a wide variety of most common chronic illnesses today.
Unfortunately, the general public have not been exposed to the truth about nutritional ketosis, and therefore don’t believe that it’s a healthy state to be in.

Just as cholesterol is not the culprit in heart disease, ketones have also been labelled as some kind of strange substance that you should avoid at all costs. This is simply not the case.

How do I start keto and what can I eat?

As far as what you can eat, keto diets are done differently by different people. Eat dark green leafy vegetables, fatty red meats, chicken with the skin left on, fish, offal (organ meat), eggs, seeds & nuts, full-fat dairy, or anything else you can find rich in nutrition, fat, protein and fibre.

Carbs are a limit. Protein is a target. Fat is to be consumed to remove hunger and meet macros requirements.

Although fibre is a carbohydrate, it is not digested as a simple carbohydrate and is therefore not included in your daily carb count. It’s important to stress that fibre doesn’t NEGATE carbs – it just isn’t counted; so mixing a handful of flax meal into a bowl of ice-cream won’t work!
