The keto diet is all about helping you lose weight the non-conventional way, not through eating less, but through eating fewer carbs and more fats.
Traditionally, your body converts carbohydrates into energy to fuel your body for day-to-day living, working, and physical activity. With keto, because carb stores are low, your body switches to drawing energy from fats, using up your fat stores so that you lose weight; a process known as Ketosis.
There are different ways to do keto though, depending on the results that you’re looking for and how soon you want to achieve them. If you’re looking more to maintain your weight, a less restrictive form of keto might be the best option, where you still eat close to the normal macronutrient ratio. For those looking to lose weight slowly and sustainably, a medium-level keto is a great option, as while there are fewer carbs than for a weight-sustaining keto, it isn’t quite as restrictive as a strict keto, which requires strong restrictions of carbs and sees swifter changes as a result.
Lifesum covers all levels of keto. They have a easy, medium and strict keto diet plans where your carb intake ranges from as much as 27% of daily calories to as little as 5%.
You can also try one of the app’s keto meal plans, which will walk you through 3-weeks of keto, meal-by-meal and day-by-day.
Whether you choose a keto diet plan or a keto meal plan, both offer tasty keto recipes that are easy and quick to prepare, even for beginner cooks. They also offer a net carb counter, so that if you need to count carbs minus fiber, this is calculated for you, no calculator necessary.
To start either a keto meal plan or a keto diet plan, open up the app and tap the ‘Plans’ tab, and select the plan you think will work best for you.
”I’ve learned that dieting doesn’t have to be difficult, and was really surprised I was allowed to eat tasty things like sandwiches and dressings! The food was delicious, easy to cook, and you even get a shopping list. This program was so easy to follow, and my cravings were gone after only a few days!”
”This app is like the best thing that has happened to my health. I was shocked how my cravings were gone after only a couple of days and not wanting to eat between meals really helped. Losing 5kg in only 3 weeks is fantastic, but the best part is the health improvement. I feel remarkably much better, have more energy, better mood, can play with my kids and do more than ever.”
”The best thing about Lifesum is the full overview you get on your nutrition. I’ve learnt how to prioritize my food which makes me even more motivated to continue my journey. I’ve tried other similar apps before, but Lifesum is really easy to use and stick to.”
