KETO - and the effects of cheat meals / carbs / sugar

KETO, we've all heard about it! Well, sort of?..


What is a KETO:

"A person following the ketogenic - or keto - diet would typically eat 70 per cent fat, 20 per cent protein and 10 per cent of carbohydrates."


Why?

"The Ketogenic diet defines a low-carb, high-fat way of eating. Following this eating plan forces the body into a metabolic state, known as ketosis, which starves the body of carbohydrates but not calories.

High fat diets don't work for everyone! Before you consider such a diet, consult your GP and conduct a routine check up to check Blood pressure & Cholesterol specifically. Don't overdo it, drink loads of water and don't cheat!!
