"The Keto Countdown: 21 Days to Success"
The term keto-adaptation refers to your body’s transition from burning primarily glucose as fuel, to being able to also use ketones produced from burning body fat.
It will take a few days or weeks to feel your absolute best on keto. You may experience symptoms of carbohydrate withdrawal at first, but once you become fat-adapted, you’ll find that you won’t crave carbs as much anymore.
Two of the main benefits of the ketogenic diet is its effect in helping people to lose weight and lowering blood glucose levels.
It’s not necessary to count calories if you’re eating keto.
Yes, you can. It is a very useful tool to boost ketone levels and fat burning. However, you should get keto-adapted first before attempting it.
Yes. Even though there are often carbs in alcohol, you can still drink it in limited amounts.
Realize that on days when you do choose to consume alcohol, you may have to adjust your carbs from other sources, depending on the kind of alcohol you have.
You can lose an average of 2-3 kg per week, if you stay consistent with the diet.
However, weight loss can vary depending on starting weight, age, and activity level.
Fruit is generally not a mainstay of the keto diet. With so much natural sugar, fruit generally has too many carbs to be included. But you can have small amounts of lower-carb fruits, like berries.
Here is a list of all the low-carb foods that are appropriate to eat when you’re following keto.
- Fish and seafood
- Low-carb veggies
- Nuts, seeds and healthful oils
- Plain Greek yogurt and cottage cheese
- Unsweetened coffee and tea
- Dark chocolate and cocoa powder
With the keto diet being low in carbohydrates, some of the foods with higher carbs that you may need to limit include:
- Starchy vegetables and high-sugar fruits
- Sweetened yogurt
- Honey, syrup or sugar in any form
- Chips and crackers
The so-called keto flu is a group of symptoms that may appear two to five days after starting a ketogenic diet. Headache, foggy brain, fatigue, irritability, nausea, difficulty sleeping, and constipation.
Keto flu symptoms resolve themselves in a matter of 3-4 days.
