A ketogenic diet seems all the rage these days, but it's really just an amped up version of a paleo diet.A "keto" diet is a ultra low carbohydrate diet that relies primarily on fat as the fuel source. At Skinny2Strong, we don't ever recommend this type of fad diet....because that's what it is...a fad and it should be used. Don't let doctors and other "nutrition experts" fool you.
If you look it up, many people begin their transition into a keto diet by eating a block of cream cheese for three days! The notion behind this diet is to reduce carbs low enough so that they body has no choice but to use fat to provide the body with energy.
How Low Carb?
Yes, you read that right. Most keto diets say that 50 is the highest, but really 20 should be the goal. This means that you will be doing a lot of macro counting. Fat should make up at least 70% of your diet with only 10% coming from carbs. Well, one cup of broccoli has 6 grams in it. If you're a vegetarian or a vegetable lover, this diet can be a real life suck.
