Some of you have asked, “What is Keto?” I know my blogs have been focused on my experiences with being on the Keto diet. I haven’t shared what it is exactly. In a nut shell, it’s a high fat, moderate protein, very low carb diet. People get nervous that eating too much fat is bad for your heart. Others have no idea that eating carbs converts to sugar in your system. To make sure that my readers have an understanding of what it means to follow Keto, I’m attaching a link to a very good article that will provide the basics.
I’ve been eating Keto for almost a year. It’s not for everyone. I can tell you all the great things about it, and the science behind it to prove that it’s healthy. It still won’t be for everyone. There are so many misconceptions on how to follow a Keto diet. The one I just heard recently was from a doctor. This medical professional said following a Keto diet is great, but it’s not to be followed long-term. There was no explanation as to why you can’t follow it long-term. Just that it’s recommended that you don’t. Really?! Of course this is long-term. Why would I go from eating food that my body processes as sugar as a short-term energy source when I can eat healthy fat as my energy source that lasts longer? Going off and on it would only cause other issues. That is for another blog.
