The trendy keto diet is popular with people who want to lose weight fast. Celebrities such as Jersey Shore Vinny Guadagnino, Halle Berry and Even LeBron James have been on the high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet. Now, after months of "self-treatment", Kourtney Kardashian is back on the keto diet, she writes in her blog Poosh .
If you are unfamiliar with the diet, Keto reduces carbohydrate intake to only about 10 percent of your daily calories. In general, most people maintain their carbohydrate intake at about 20 to 30 grams per day to put their body in the fat burning mode or in the ketosis. That's about half a medium bagel or a big banana.
In her post, Kardashian explains that she originally tried the diet two years ago.
"My body never looked better than it did two and a half years ago when I did it for two months Experience has shown that I have found the best way to exercise my body to curb sugar cravings, burn fat and lose weight To stimulate it by sticking to a keto diet, "she writes.
Kardashian, 40, plans to omit snacks. Stick to three meals a day consisting of plenty of fresh vegetables and lean protein. The star describes her nutritional plan, which consists of an avocado smoothie with MCT oil, bone stock and stevia for breakfast. Lunch consists of a salad with turkey, mixed vegetables and egg whites, while the main course consists of chicken, salmon, cauliflower and broccoli.
She admits keto is restrictive and encourages people to talk to their doctors before trying the diet plan.
