Celebrities and fitness experts swear by the Keto diet. No calorie counting, no food-weighing, and no tasteless, boring food. It’s the diet of dreams.
That’s saying something when 2 out of 5 people quit a diet within the first week. The keto diet is all about making your body do the hard work so your mind doesn’t have to. It’s a low-carb, high-fat diet which brings your body into a state known as ketosis, where it burns fat for energy rather than carbs.
While it is low-carb, the high-fat element means you aren’t limited in your food choices, even if you aren’t eating at home. You’ll eat lots of fatty fish and meat, plenty of dairy, and nuts and seeds in abundance, along with low-carb vegetables like peppers, tomatoes, and leafy greens. With this much available to eat, it’s easy to order when you’re out too, just stick to protein-heavy entrees and order side salads with healthy oil or dairy based dressings.
Well for one, you’ll lose weight. Burning fat is everyone’s weight loss goal, and on this front keto does not disappoint. But there are other benefits too. You’ll find you have more energy and a stabilized blood sugar level (great if you’re diabetic, and great if you typically experience a lot of mood swings); and the diet has even been rumored to help with clearing up acne.
Even though eating out is easy, sometimes eating at home is the hard part. How do you know what to cook? Enter Lifesum. It’s a health app with a keto plan that you can tailor to your needs. You enter your details, set the level of difficulty and the pace of your diet; and the app gives you a list of recommended foods and a simple meal plan with recipes to follow. The app even caters to pescetarian, flexitarian, vegetarian and vegan lifestyles.
There’s one main challenge with keto – it can be hard to cut out all the fries, cake and soda you’re used to eating, and even fruit has to be eaten in moderation – but that’s why the Lifesum app is so great. With an app walking you through every step you’ll never be at a loss for what to eat and even though you might experience some withdrawals, you won’t struggle to know what to do about them.
