If you are thinking of giving Keto a go this New Year, then you must acquaint yourself with the basics of it.
“Ketogenic” is a term for a low-carb diet, in which you tailor your diet to get more calories from protein and fat and less from carbohydrates. The keto diet is very low in carbs, high in fat and moderate in protein.
Here are all the foods, and their moderation, as allowed in a Keto diet:
A basic keto meal of yours needs to have a decent slice of protein, a chunk of fats and no carbs. As you can only have 20 gms or fewer carbs, you cannot have carb-specific foods, and can only consume it as they come in other foods.
Your breakfast will set your course of action for the day. It needs to be fulfilling and pack up as much fat as it can. For beginners, the perfect way to start the day is a heavy omelette, packed with veggies and cheese.
Your lunch must have a nice slice of protein, veggies, nuts and fats. It can be versatile, just stay in your carb limit.
Your dinner cannot have any carbs. The best way to avoid is to eat fish. Any dish surrounding fish can be really good and make for the best Keto dinner.
You need to take the first week easy. Take care! Toodles for now!
