With more than 100 million people using the internet, it is common for people to forget about their keto diet and its health benefits.
But a new study has found people in the UK are not only missing out on some of the most important nutrients and health benefits of the keto-friendly diet, they are also missing out by eating unhealthy meals that are low in fat, sugar and salt.
Keto Friendly Diets are low fat, low carb, low sugar and low fat.
“We have been looking for the low-fat and low-sugar way of eating for a long time, but we never really understood what the ketogenic diet was supposed to be,” said Professor Tim Moore, Director of Nutrition Research at the University of Exeter.
We don’t have the data to say exactly what the low fat diet is, but I do know that if you’re in keto, it’s very easy to eat a low-carb diet, low-calorie diet and that’s what you need to be on keto.
For many, there is a perception that low fat diets have a high carbohydrate content, but that is a myth.
“The low fat and low carbohydrate diet is really low in carbohydrate and high in fat.
So you are getting all the nutrients you need in a low fat or keto based diet,” Professor Moore said.
Dr. Michael Rutter, a professor of nutrition at the National University of Ireland, said that many people think they are eating too much fat, when in fact they are not.
It is not recommended to eat more than 20 grams of fat per day, but it is recommended to reduce your intake of saturated fat and cholesterol, he said.
“The ketogenic is a low carbohydrate keto approach, which means that your carbs are low and your fat is high,” he said, adding that this type of diet has a higher proportion of vegetables, fruits and low carb grains than other types of diets.
He added that many studies show the ketones in fat and carbohydrates provide some protection against obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, but not as much as they would with a traditional ketogenic approach.
“There’s not a lot of scientific research on the benefits of low carb or ketogenic diets,” he added.
“We need to continue looking at this for a while.”
Professor Moore says that it is not always possible to find a ketogenic low-energy diet that is low in calories or fat, but the ketone bodies found in some keto friendly foods are the perfect thing to help boost your metabolism.
“It’s really important that the ketosis process is occurring, and it’s really hard to achieve that when you are on a low carb diet,” he explained.
Professor Moore is keen to see more research done into the effects of ketosis on weight loss and longevity.
“The fact that there are a lot more people out there eating low-glycemic carbohydrates, which is good news because you can be on a keto low-protein diet and it may be more beneficial to lose weight than it is to increase it,” he concluded.
