What about the benefits and the risks of the keto diet?
On previous diets, I was always hungry. How are your ketogenic meal plans any different?
When the body can no longer use carbs as its main source of energy, it naturally switches to using fats instead. The body enters a state of ketosis, a condition that decreases the appetite, thereby helping to reduce the amount of food consumed.
I heard that on a strict ketogenic diet, one suffers from constipation because of the lack of fruits and grains. How will these meal plans help me counter this?
Indeed, removing fiber-rich foods from your diet disrupts intestinal transit and may cause constipation. Our meal plans are built to provide between 15 and 22 g of fiber per day, thus promoting good intestinal transit.
What is the macronutrient distribution in your ketogenic meal plans?
The macronutrient distribution in our keto meal plans is such that 70% of the energy consumed comes from fat, 20% from protein and less than 10% from carbs. The meal plans provide, on average, 20 g net carbs per day. If the value is sometimes slightly higher, it’s because our algorithm calculates carbs from all sources, even those that would not be calculated manually. For example, a small amount of grated ginger contains 0.5 g of carbs. Spices also contain similar quantities, which we do account for in full. Thus, 24 g net carbohydrates from all sources is equivalent to a lesser amount calculated manually, approaching ~ 20 g.
Do you offer less restrictive ketogenic meal plans?
Yes, we do offer “liberal” LCHF meal plans
(100 g net carbs/day) that can be followed without the risk of nutritional deficiencies.
