The ketogenic diet is often prescribed to children with epilepsy. Thus, the basics of this mode of feeding must be simple. Why? Well, it’s the parents who make the same diet for their children. They are not doctors, nor scientists just people like you and me.
The ketogenic diet or Keto ultra diet is based on very simple principles:
- Consume carbohydrates in very small quantities: maximum 50g per day
- Replace sugar with good fat
- Consume protein at each meal
That is to say: eat vegetables and meat at will. By meat, this also includes cold cuts. Are you surprised? You can be. You can also be happy, since when can you eat deli while losing weight? Today, it is the carbohydrates that are used by our body as the primary energy. What you need to know is that carbohydrates ( sugar ) are responsible for your fat. Why? Because the body does not know how to use too much sugar. As a result, he will store it and the love handles will appear.
We eat too much carbohydrate, so our body does not know what to do with it. Because originally, it was lipids fuel of the body. And you have already seen, a big caveman? Well, I know you never really saw it, but the paintings and skeletons found are not those of an overweight population. So why?
Simply because this is contrary to what one might think: lipids (fat) are not responsible for your fat. On the contrary, lipids are used by the body and more particularly by the brain. The goal of the ketogenic diet or Keto ultra diet is to restore this imbalance. That is, reducing the amount of carbohydrates consumed while increasing protein (meat) and fat (fat). This will cause you to lose fat and weight.
It’s that simple. By reducing your carbohydrate consumption you will lose fat. What is it easy? Sorry but the answer is YES. In any case, it’s easy to say. To do is another story because carbohydrates and especially sugar is present throughout our diet.
I know, I know, this whole story of carbohydrates, fats and proteins is a little complex at first. You must learn what these macronutrients serve. This is the key to your physical transformation.
Yes, sugar is everywhere. This for two reasons:
- It is very affordable
- It makes food swell
- Sugar gives a pleasant taste to food
Did you know that in bacon there was sugar? In fact, there is sugar in all industrial products even those that are believed to be healthy. Like small canned weight for example or iceberg salad. But do not trust me, check for yourself. On the food labels look at the line carbohydrates and carbohydrates including sugars.
To put the ketogenic diet into practice is very easy: all foods that do not contain more than 2 grams of carbohydrates per 100 grams can be consumed.
This is the case for the majority of fresh meat and fish, but also cold cuts and cheese. Yes you read correctly, the cheese is allowed up to 100 grams per day which amounts to 2 slices of cheese per day. Just be careful because some cheese contains more than 2g of carbohydrates per 100 grams.
As for vegetables: all those who are green are at will. For example, you can let go on broccoli, asparagus, zucchini, but also aubergines. Leafy vegetables are preferred if you like them. That is, spinach, mache, chard, cabbage and many more. To give you an idea here is a typical ketogenic meal day.
