KETO Health Benefits
There are many benefits that come with being on Ketogenic Diet: from
weight loss and increased energy levels to therapeutic medical applications.
Therefore, almost anyone can safely benefit from eating a low-carb, high-fat diet.
Protein is included in every meal as this helps reduce appetite, regulate blood glucose levels and preserve lean muscle mass. Therefore, some examples of protein-rich foods are fish, chicken, turkey, meat, eggs, and cheese. Protein drinks including whey protein isolate may be utilized.
Adequate fat intake is essential as this enhances fat burning by the body while reducing the synthesis of fatty acids in the body which both promote fat loss. For example, some optimal sources of fats are fatty meats, fish, avocado, olive oil, nuts, and seeds
