If you want to try the keto diet, prepare for a complete change in your eating habits.
Keto is restrictive. The diet argues that losing weight involves maintaining ketosis or the state in which your body converts fat as the main source of fuel instead of carbohydrates. Proponents of keto say that you can best achieve ketosis by consuming 80 percent of your daily calories from fat.
This makes eating bread, oatmeal and even bananas extremely difficult to fit into what you consume every day.
If this still sounds like something that you want to accept, you'll need some ideas for what to do cooking (because good luck is trying to ingest keto if you're fast- Visit food joints or sit-down restaurants.)
Mark Sisson can help you. He is the author of The Keto Reset Diet Cookbook.
Try the following: scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese and half an avocado. This is Sisson's main course if he needs a quick breakfast. You can easily refine it with bacon, butter and your favorite carbohydrate vegetables like broccoli or spinach.
Try the following: Mixed vegetables, paprika, celery, cucumber, half a tomato. Top with your favorite protein: salmon, chicken, steak or hard boiled eggs with bacon. Deglaze with a dressing of healthy fats such as avocado oil.
Try the following: Roasted Grilled Steak and Roasted Brussels Sprouts or Broccoli. (Sisson advises keto newbies to keep it simple by cooking a protein source and a low-carbohydrate vegetable for dinner.)
