The secret to a successful Ketogenic diet is to make sure you eat the good fats for Keto. Start by eating healthy Saturated Fats such as fish and eggs first, add Monounsaturated Fats like olives and avocados. Finally, limit your Polyunsaturated Fats and avoid Trans Fats, which are bad for you.
Nutritional Ketosis refers to a metabolic state where your body burns fat for its primary energy source. The body typically uses glucose as its primary fuel source. Glucose is also known as sugar. Your liver can produce ketones when carb intake is low. These are fat-like compounds in your brain, and other organs can replace glucose.
My lazy Keto breakfast is made with eggs, butter, avocado, flaxseeds, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, and my special ingredient – NutPods. It is prepared and baked the night before and left in the fridge overnight. I typically make enough for five or six servings, which can typically last for the whole week. It makes the perfect Keto breakfast.
As well as the potential for weight loss with Keto, studies have shown that Keto can control insulin and blood glucose, lower blood pressure and triglycerides, reduce heart disease, increase the good HDL cholesterol, improve brain function, prevent migraines. But clearly, there are many additional benefits than just weight loss.
