However, what is a ketogenic diet, and how can it be maintained? Continue reading to find out Nutritien’s secret to maintaining your Ketogenic diet!

In a nutshell, a Ketogenic diet works on the principle of the process of ketosis, in which our respective bodies burn fat, rather than carbohydrates to meet its energy consumption. This helps promote weight loss. However, in order to maintain and maximize the efficiency of your Ketogenic diet, it is of paramount importance that you stick to a strict routine. There are no ‘cheat days’ of fast food, as this will set you back a significant amount, and minimize the impact of your Ketogenic diet. In adhering to a regular routine, you will ensure your body remains receptive to receive the full benefits of your Ketogenic diet!

Your day-to-day ketogenic diet should include a diverse variety of foods, ensuring your body receives a sufficient and adequate amount of certain food groups. In order to reduce carbohydrate intake, it is advised that typically consumed food such as rice, bread, potatoes, pasta, sugary drinks are minimized.

So, what should my food intake compromise of? Although this will be different for each person, foods known to have negligible carbohydrate intake include red meat, fish, cheese, eggs & chicken. Whilst your fluid intake should compromise primarily of water, it is vital that your diet remains strictly low on carbohydrates, and your protein, veggie & fat intake is appropriately balanced. Counting your carbohydrate intake is an efficient way to ensure you are making the most of your ketogenic diet. Regardless of which week you are at, it is important to take note of your carb count, as keto is all about limiting your carb intake.
