31 Jan Keto?
To keto or not to keto? Great question! With the ketogenic diet all over the media, should you give it a shot? Harvard University (yup, THE Harvard) has reviewed the popular diet and here’s what they have to say.
If you decide to try keto, know that there are a few different styles of the diet, so finding what works for you is important. A perfect example includes the variety of recipes and their sources for this week’s 7 day meal plan. While coined, “keto-friendly” you might find some meals more strict than others on certain food items. Just like any diet, it’s up to you how you incorporate it into your lifestyle. If you’d like to know if you’re hitting the keto mark, try a food log that tracks your macronutrients (aka macros – carbohydrates, protein, and fat), like My Fitness Pal (bonus: it’s free). You can adjust your daily goal of percentages for each – carb, protein, and fat for your overall calorie needs based on keto recommendations. This will allow you to have a running tally to show you how things are adding up.
Remember, “diet” simply means what you eat and drink, so don’t overthink it and instead identify your goals (both short and long-term) and map out the eating habits to get you there.RECIPES FOR THIS WEEK
