Keto Recipes and Ketogenic Diet Information
Ketogenic diets are 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.
A ketogenic diet along with keto recipes is done by simply limiting the amount of carbohydrates you eat. The approach is just a low carb diet coupled with higher fat intake.
The amount of carbs depends for each person, but it usually below 50 / 20 grams of net carbs per day. If you eat 10 grams of carbs, but that contains 5 grams of fibre, you will have consumer 5 grams of net carbs.
This limited amount of carbohydrate intake will switch your body over to burning ketones as your primary source of fuel.
Alternatively, you can look at your body switching from being a sugar burning steam train with all the black dirty soot covering the engine, to a clean burning Tesla that runs on fat and ultimately does less damage to your body.
