What to Eat on Ketogenic Diet for Weight Loss – Meal Plan

July 22, 2019 3 By William Morgan


So maybe you’ve started on the Keto diet but
you are not seeing the results you expected.
In this video, I’m going to be giving you
my top tips on what to eat for weight loss
on the Keto diet.
What’s up guys, Anne here from Think Natural
Health.
We are passionate about wellness and we release
videos every week so you should consider subscribing
to our channel but today – let’s talk about
Keto.
In my previous video I went over the basics
of what Keto is and how to do it.
If you missed that and haven’t seen it then
you can check the card above now and go ahead
and watch that.
Today I’ll be going over the food to eat and
what not to eat on Keto.
Lets go.
So the first thing you want to do is try and
find low-carb alternatives to the really common
carby foods that we eat like rice, pasta,
breads, biscuits.
The most common one would be cauliflower rice,
every one has kinda heard of that, but there’s
actually a lot of different vegetables rices
that you can try and I would really recommend
doing some research because some of them have
fantastic nutritional profiles.
The second thing you’re going to want to do
is eat plenty of nutrient-dense fats, like
grass-fed butter, really good quality olive
oil and coconut oil and avocados.
Stay away from the heavily refined oils and
butters.
They do not allow your liver to function properly
– they clog it all up, which is bad because
that is where the 6 fat burning hormones are
produced.
So some really great examples of food you
want to eat on Keto are calciferous vegetables,
I’m talking kale, cabbage, broccoli, Brussels
sprouts.
There is an amazing recipe for cauliflower
wraps that I’m going to link down below.
It is a great substitute, really easy to make
and it will help you miss carbs just that
little bit less.
As for the foods not to eat, well, the list
is quite extensive.
So we know not to eat carbs, we’ve been over
that, but there are several other things you
should bear in mind.
So when trying to pick healthy foods on the
Keto diet you want to bear a few things in
mind.
One of them is that you don’t want to spike
your insulin levels more than what you have
to.
Every time you eat you will spike your insulin
levels but you want to try and maintain that
and keep it low and that’s why we do intermittent
fasting, but that’s for another video.
So foods you want to try and avoid are starchy
foods like potatoes, very much sweet potatoes,
fruit, yoghurt, milk, beans – anything like
that.
I know that each of those foods sound healthy
on their own and they are, a lot of them have
really great nutritional properties but sadly
they also score high on the glycaemic index
which means you’re going to end up with a
massive spike in insulin – and that is a huge
no-no.
When you have a spike in insulin, when these
things are converted really quickly into sugar,
you end up putting the fat burning process
on hold anywhere in between 24 hours and 72.
That is a huge no-no on Keto!
When first starting out on Keto it may seem
like your options are limited, and I know
it can come across like that.
But with a little bit of research, I honestly,
I can tell you right now, you can find a substitute
for just about anything.
And I have some of my own that I will be doing
in another video.
There you have it guys.
Follow these tips and avoid these traps and
I guarantee you will start to see some really
great weight loss.
Have fun on your Keto journey, make sure and
put any comments you have down below and I
will see you in the next video.
Bye!
