[Preview] What do you eat on a keto diet?
A keto diet contains very few carbs
and a higher proportion of energy
from natural fat.
The protein amount should be moderate.
The diet is based on real food like meat,
fish, eggs, vegetables
and natural fats like butter
or from fatty foods like avocado,
salmon or olive oil.
Avoid the carbohydrate rich foods
like sugar, sweets and starchy foods,
bread, pasta, rice and potatoes.
And you could end up eating
something like this in a day,
just as an example.
A simple way to explain the difference
between regular food and keto foods
is that you remove the large portion
of carbs, rice, potatoes or pasta
and replace it with vegetables
prepared in fats.
For example veggies fried in butter
or salads with olive oil.
It can really be that simple.
So how much should you eat?
Well, you can eat when you’re hungry
until you’re satisfied.
You don’t need to count calories,
you don’t need any pills,
no special products and
no meal replacements on a keto diet.
You only need real food.
Another important difference –
waiting until you’re hungry to eat
feels easy on keto,
because your body can now switch directly
to burning your body fat when needed.
On a carb diet you will get sugar cravings
and feel tired if you don’t eat all the time.
But on a keto diet you get more energy
when you’re hungry.
Now once you do it,
hunger is the best spice.
So eat when you’re hungry
until you’re full
and then repeat this
for as long as you want,
maybe your whole life.
It’s as natural as can be,
Just remember to choose food
with very little sugar or starch.
Now a common rule is to stay
below 20 g of carbs per day.
And a simple beginner’s rule to achieve that
is to stick to food with less than 5% carbs.

we’ll go through exactly what to eat
and what not to eat on keto.
