Dieting can be hard, especially if you are used to drinking sugary beverages and eating a lot of junk food. But trying something like the keto diet offers many health benefits, from helping promote weight loss to boosting your overall health.
If you have a busy schedule but are interested in going keto, the tips detailed below can help.
“Going keto” means regularly putting your body into a state of ketosis, where your liver produces ketone bodies from fat and burns those ketones for fuel.
Ketosis happens when the body doesn’t have the insulin supply to convert carbs into energy. Instead, it uses ketones.
Ketones are produced during a process called ketogenesis, which occurs when your body breaks fatty acids and ketogenic amino acids into ketones.
You can trigger ketosis by limiting your carbohydrate intake and fasting intermittently. Both methods work well together, but if you need a little help going keto, you can also try using ketone ester powder.
A ketone ester powder will help raise ketone levels in your blood to help put the body into a state of ketosis.
But once you’re on the diet, don’t get discouraged if you don’t see results right away. The diet affects people differently and what works for others might not always work for you. (Related: 5 Tips for a successful keto diet.)
The most popular choice for intermittent fasting is known as 16:8 fasting, which involves 16 hours of fasting with an eight-hour eating window. You can also try a 12-hour eating window if that works better for you.
You may encounter some issues, like not finding certain meals satiating or having trouble when dining out. The best way to avoid these issues is to plan ahead. Using ketone ester powder also ensures that your body gets its daily ketosis boost.
To avoid feeling deprived, look up tasty keto recipes that will help you feel full. If you love burgers, look for a keto-friendly alternative and try the recipe.
Start with a healthy breakfast, make a keto-friendly lunch and end the day with a nice dinner.
If you crave a midnight snack, eat some dark chocolate, a hard-boiled egg or half an avocado.
You can also start your day with a refreshing keto smoothie made with fatty ingredients like full-fat coconut milk, almond butter and avocado.
Within your preferred eating window, indulge in high-fat snacks like cottage cheese and raw nuts.
To reap all the benefits of ketosis, make sure you also use ketone ester powder. According to studies, ketosis is linked to stable blood sugar levels, lower triglyceride levels and cognitive health.
Add ketone ester powder to a glass of water and the juice of half a lemon to make it easier to drink.
If you are occasionally tempted to indulge in carb-heavy foods like fresh bread or pancakes, don’t get discouraged. Try again the next day and add a second scoop of ketone ester powder to your keto breakfast smoothie to help turn your off days back on.
After going keto for one week, you may experience benefits such as less sporadic energy levels.
Since ketone bodies are a fantastic fuel source for the brain, your focus can also improve.
