Have you heard your friends, family members, co-workers, or favorite blogs talking about the new fad – the Keto Diet?
So what is it?
The ketogenic diet is a diet that, by way of macronutrient balance (high fat, moderate protein, and very low carbohydrate in comparison to the Standard American Diet) induces the body to burn ketones and fat in addition to glucose for energy.
Our Certified Nutritionist and Lifestyle Educator Stephanie Lapinski recommends: “When considering the Ketogenic diet make sure that the program you follow focuses on eating 65%-75% healthy fats, 15%-25% protein and 5%-10% healthy carbohydrates. Some programs have you eating too much protein which does not allow you to get into Ketosis.”
