Episode 007: Keto, Low Carb, & Macros
Ketosis is such a buzzword being thrown around nowadays. But do you really know what it means? How many carbohydrates should be restricted from your diet? Is carbohydrate the real enemy here? How about maintaining a keto diet as a lifestyle, is that possible?
Today, we talk about the ketogenic diet, low carb, and macros. We also dive deep into some new approaches that restrict glycogen and blood glucose levels and how those affect us both short-term and long-term.
At the end of the day, you have to be consistent with whatever approach you take, commit to the process, learn the ins and outs, learn the risks and benefits, and make that decision. What it comes down to with a lot of these approaches is preference. If you’re someone who often craves fattier food, then this can actually be a successful and doable approach for you.
In this episode, you will hear:
- The ketogenic macro distribution
- How ketogenesis works
- What happens when you don’t have enough carbs and ketones
- Transitioning back to adding carbs to your diet
- Types of fat sources
- Is keto a lifestyle you can maintain?
- Looking at intermittent fasting
- Doing a cost-benefit analysis of your diet
