Keto Diet Explained
Keto diet foods are foods that are high in protein and fats and low in carbohydrates.1 For example, to achieve a state of ketosis, you reduce or eliminate soda, white bread and other simple sugars. You definitely don't want to eat more than 50 carbs a day. Items on a Keto diet food list include steak, eggs, salmon, broccoli, avocados, cabbage and zucchini. Herbal Goodness papaya, graviola, guava and bamboo leaves are other foods to add in moderation to your Keto diet.
You can also eat some fruit. Examples of Keto fruit are strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Just eat Keto fruit in moderation. These foods, especially proteins and vegetables, help the body to burn carbs then start burning proteins and fats for energy. It's at this point that your body may reach a state of ketosis, a state that takes about three to four days on the diet to achieve. During ketosis, your body generally burns more fat. Hence, quicker weight loss.
