When we think about cutting carbs, we think about eating less bread, cutting pasta, avoiding rice. And all of these, to some extent, are correct and effective.

That is until it comes to Ketogenic dieting. If you’re trying to lose weight on the ketogenic diet, simply eating less of certain food groups isn’t going to cut it.

Ketogenic food concept - plate with keto food, top viewThe ketogenic diet is a diet built upon the idea of you radically reducing your carbohydrate intake and significantly improving your intake of healthy fats. The goal is to bring your body to a state where it can no longer rely on your carbohydrate intake as a source of energy, so that it starts to burn fat for fuel instead. When this happens, ketones, little molecules produced by the liver from fatty acids, are released into your body in a state known as ketosis, and your weight starts to shift (even the stubborn bits!).

Ketosis has proven to be a very effective way of losing weight, and more and more people are adopting ketogenic diets. We get why. The challenge is, that it can be pretty difficult to achieve ketosis, as it requires a very careful consideration of every gram of fat and carbs you eat.

Thankfully, with Lifesum, it’s easier. Our app has all you need to ensure you get your body into the state of ketosis. If you need a little hand-holding and guidance, you can choose from one of the many keto health plans in the app; these come complete with recipes and tips and tricks on what to eat while on keto. If you know what you need to do to achieve ketosis but want a little help achieving it, you can simply track your macros with Lifesum. Set your daily macro goals and the app will distribute them to each of your meals throughout the day. Once you’ve done that, all you have to do is follow the guided amounts assigned to each meal.
