KETO KLUB FREE PUBLIC SEMINARS: SUGAR, CARBS & KETO

Sugar and carbs are sneaky. It can be hard to track the amount of carbohydrates in packaged and processed foods, and many of us are consuming way more sugar than we think. Store isles contain products with a plethora of added sugars, hidden in everything from snacks, pasta sauces and salad dressings to ‘healthy’ nut butters and grain-free cereals. There’s even sugar in deli meats!

 

Keto Fats

Fat adaptation is your body’s ability to burn fat as its main fuel source. Keto is a high fat diet where the body is encouraged to burn fat for fuel, but who said that all the fat you burn has to come from the fat you eat? Choosing the right fats in the right amounts is the best way to maximize your fat loss and accelerate your health goals on keto.

 

Keto Protein and Chocolate Cake

10th Ave Market

What if the secret to weight loss on a keto diet isn’t actually fat, but protein? While it’s easy to see why healthy fats are the stars on a ketogenic diet, many keto experts recommend way too little protein to support lean mass and recovery. It’s true: when you’re just starting out on a keto diet some protein may turn to sugar and kick you out of ketosis but it will happen on a much lesser (and as-needed) scale once you’re fat-adapted. Discover how to determine your perfect protein requirements and what to choose to get your best results!
