Ketogenic Low Carb Dinner Meal Plans sent right to your email each week!
Low Carb versus Keto
A low carb diet usually consists of 100 grams or less of carbohydrates, moderate protein and fat. But a keto diet is higher in fat, more like 75-80% of your daily intake and much lower in carbs, only about 5% of your daily food intake.
It’s somewhat difficult to adjust if you’ve feared fat all your life, but once you start enjoying more healthier fats you will begin to crave and love it. You’re body will love it, you’ll be more satiated and you feel fuller for longer. The best part of being on a keto diet is the ability to not need to snack as you once did. Once your body starts using your own fat for fuel as opposed to being a sugar burner and using glucose, you will not need to eat as frequently and if you’re trying to lose weight you won’t be as hungry as you once were. That has been the biggest and greatest transition for me going from a low carb diet, with carbs mostly coming from vegetables, I constantly needed to snack. My body on a low carb diet did not use fat for fuel, therefore I was hungry every 2-3 hours. It does take some time, about 3-5 days to get into ketosis, and some people it may take even longer depending on your diet before trying keto, but it is worth it. If you’re looking for a great way to enjoy losing weight and remove sugar cravings from your diet for good, I would highly recommend the keto diet.
