Keto diet – Pros and Cons
The keto diet and its many variants have recently become more and more popular. The reason is that they can be attributed primarily to their (quick) effectiveness in the loss of excess pounds. When we talk about keto diet, we have in mind the way of eating, where carbohydrates represent a very low proportion.
Facts about keto diet
In the keto diet, by far the largest share of energy consumption is fat. In addition to fat, the individual also consumes enough but not too much protein. Carbohydrates, as we mentioned at the beginning, are thought to represent a very small proportion of consumed kilograms of calories (most recommended to be obtained from green vegetable).
What to eat on a keto diet
Most people mistakenly think that the keto diet is a form of a high protein diet, but we realize that it is not so. Most of the energy consumed is fat. A typical meal on a ketone diet would therefore contain some protein, a natural source of fat (ie oily flesh and / or fish, high quality vegetable oil, butter, egg yolk, avocados …) and some greenish vegetables.
Keto diet and her traps
Most people (or most of all) want immediate results in losing excess body fat. With the help of a keto diet, they actually show up in a very short time, initially primarily due to the loss of water in the body. Unfortunately, a ketone diet can also have bad sides. Because of the very limited set of foods, many people quickly despair and return to the old eating rails, and consequently, all the lost kilograms are quickly returned.
As little as possible carbohydrates
As we have learned, our body does not necessarily need carbohydrates for its functioning, which in no way means that they should now be completely avoided. Choose among the varied selection of quality vegetables and fruits. Vegetables and fruits are truly full of vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, fibers, and other health-promoting substances. For long-term health preservation, focus your food on high-quality fats and proteins, and give priority to soft fruits and vegetables.
