Keto Diet Macros
The ketogenic diet is a very low carb, high fat style of eating. A keto diet should have 70% of calories coming from fat, 15% from carbohydrate and 15% from protein. It can be a useful diet for weight loss as it controls the amount of carbohydrates you are eating, which then lowers the amount of glucose coming into your body that may be stored as fat. On this very low carb diet, the body starts to rely on the energy coming from fats in your diet and your own fat stores to fuel your body. Each day has been limited to 20g of carbohydrate to balance blood sugar and prevent fat storage.
This diet can be challenging for beginners to try without guidance. As this diet style is restrictive, it is important to keep an eye on how much fibre, vitamins and minerals you are eating. My 28-day easy keto meal plan for beginners is a great way to get started on the keto diet, as it can be used as a guide to show you how to balance your macros properly and cook easy, healthy and delicious meals to help you lose weight.
Foods to Eat on a Keto Diet
The easy keto meal plan is made up of proteins such as chicken, fish and some red meat and healthy fats. As part of the keto diet, we take the refined carbohydrate sources (breads, pasta, rice, etc.) off your plate and replace them with large amounts and a variety of vegetables. This ensures you are eating enough fibre, vitamins and minerals to keep your good gut bacteria happy.
The mistake many beginners make when starting the ketogenic diet is eating too much protein and not enough fat. This meal plan makes it easy for those starting or wanting to maintain the ketogenic diet style to discover the optimal portions of each macronutrient for you to lose weight.
