Being your best on a Keto Diet

So you’ve decided to try the ketogenic diet! Many popular ketogenic diets advocate for an extremely high fat diet and very low carbohydrate intake to induce an extreme level of ketosis.

Keto food mealKetosis is a state where your body burns fat for energy, therefore you lose weight. Ketogenic diets are difficult to adhere to and cause extreme side effects - known as the ‘keto flu’. When you’re doing your research into a ketogenic diet some advocate for a diet high in saturated fats, which can be detrimental to our health. Examples of these high saturated fats include: bacon, cream, lard, butter and cheese. If you are choosing to adhere to a ketogenic diet, ensure you include unsaturated fats. These are the fats that are good for our health and can assist with preventing cardiovascular disease! (1)

An alternative to a ketogenic diet that achieves similar weight loss to that of a ketogenic diet is one that is a diet low in carbohydrates, high in protein and with a moderate amount of healthy fats.  No food groups are completely eliminated from this plan and the side effects may be less extreme because the ketosis induced is more mild. The Be Fit Food program has created the Be Rapid program based on this philosophy.

Be Fit Food don’t exclude carbohydrates, because particular fibre-rich whole food carbohydrates are essential for a healthy gut microbiome, and include a number of keto friendly foods. A healthy gut microbiome has been associated with an anti-inflammatory effect. (2,3,4)
