Keto Food Pyramid (Healthy Keto Foods)

Keto food pyramid. A lot of people are
asking about that, so I was gonna explain
some basics. Coming right up hey I’m dr.
Ekberg with Wellness For Life and if you
like to truly master health by
understanding how the body really works
make sure you subscribe and hit that
notification bell so that you don’t miss
anything. So there’s been an escalation
in confusion around keto lately so we’re
gonna talk about some of the basics and
a lot of people are asking about keto
food pyramid and we’ve been taught to
think in terms of a food pyramid and of
course the traditional one that has
eight to 11 servings of grain at the
bottom all keto people realize that that
is not the way to go but there’s still a
lot of confusion so let’s look at a few
of them so here’s one that I found that
I’m not too happy about so right down at
the bottom here the the base of this one
is meat and then we get up a little bit
and here’s eggs and cheese then next one
up is fats then we have a tiny little
bit of nuts and non starchy vegetables
and then just a few berries at the top
this is what a lot of skeptics think
about the keto pyramid and if if they
believe that’s what it is I can
understand why they have some
reservations the biggest thing is we’re
not against meat but it shouldn’t be
most of what you’re eating then when it
comes to egg and cheese we need to
realize that’s typically good food for
most people but we have to be concerned
with the quality even more so the
quality of the fats because right here
we see some Hellmann’s mayonnaise that
we know is soybean oil highly processed
and the biggest problem here that I see
on the entire thing is this tiny tiny
little thing of non starchy vegetables
so this should be at the bottom here’s
another one that I found that I like a
whole lot better because it has healthy
oils it emphasizes the quality of oils
it’s not the whole thing
neither is meat the whole
thing and it talks about fatty fish meat
organ meats and eggs and I’m all for
that just make sure that if you eat the
fatty meats that it is from grass-fed
organic animals and if you eat the fatty
fish that it’s wild-caught not
farm-raised healthy fats and oils
they’re showing coconut they’re showing
avocado they’re showing butter and olive
oil so again grass-fed extra virgin
organic all that good stuff
herbs and spices absolutely and then a
big part of the foundation is non
starchy vegetables this is what keto is
all about it’s whole food it’s real food
and then up in here not quite so much we
add in some other vegetables that are
not just the the super high water
content leafy greens but we include
include a few others like eggplant and
onion and and cauliflower and so forth
but please observe there are no starches
there are no grains in here and then
they go to raw full fat dairy and I
think in my opinion this should be a
little even a little bit further down
possibly this could be part of of the
healthy fats as long as you get again
the grass-fed the good quality and when
it comes to dairy I really want to
emphasize the raw part and the fermented
part we do not want pasteurized dairy if
you have the most of the dairy should be
either raw milk if that’s legal in your
state raw cheese etc but then you could
also ferment the dairy so that it has
the yogurt and the sour cream because
now the bacteria bring it back to life
it has the enzymes and the lactobacillus
that help us digest it and make it
healthy and then they have nuts and
seeds and berries up at the top again
berries good food they’re alive they’re
just lots of vital factors and
micronutrients
just like the vegetables but a little
bit higher in sugar so depends on where
you are on your carbohydrate intake nuts
and seeds I don’t think that you have to
limit it quite that much but you have to
look at the quality of it
I prefer nuts that taste good in their
raw state so my favorites are macadamia
pecans and walnuts other nuts that are
hiring carbs like cashew you don’t you
want to limit those and nuts that you
have to roast in order to taste good
such as peanuts you also want to limit
them a little bit more I I really like
this food pyramid and if you notice a
lot of the skeptics a lot of the
opponents to keto they say how could you
possibly be in favor of a diet that’s
all meat and fat or all fat and meat and
that’s not what I see here okay here I
see whole food in very good combinations
there’s a lot of possibilities to eat
healthy there and this is the key if you
want to turn this into a lifestyle you
need to eat whole food you want to stay
away from processed fats you want to
stay away from chemicals aspartame and
sucralose have no place in your body if
you want to be healthy they don’t have
any carbohydrates but that doesn’t make
them anything you want to eat share the
video with as many people as you can and
