Keto Diet 101: A Beginner's Guide

February 11, 2021 by Anna Lucas

Share on:

We have been hearing about the Keto Diet for some time now. Groceries and restaurants are even offering Keto-friendly products. We even know a friend or probably a neighbor in Valenza Mansions in Laguna who swears by this diet and showcases his or her successful weight-loss story.

 

What exactly is Keto Diet? How does it help lose weight?

A Ketogenic Diet (keto for short) is a low-carb, high-fat diet. This diet entails a drastic reduction of carbohydrates intake and replacing it with fats. As such, this induces the body to enter a metabolic state known as ketosis.  

 

Ketosis is when the body uses the stored fat as the energy source instead of sugar. Normally, the body uses sugar as the main source of energy. With the absence of carbohydrates which is the source of sugar, the body resorts to breaking down the fats.  

 

Keto Diet 101 A Beginners Guide 2

Why is the Keto Diet Popular?

The Keto Diet has been endorsed by a lot of celebrities and has been boosted well on social media. A diet that boasts of losing weight by eating more bacon instead of less makes it highly attractive.  

 

On top of that, results are really fast. A body can enter the state of ketosis in as short as two days of carb restriction. Therefore, significant weight-loss may be experienced as early as one week into the diet.

 

The promise of weight loss in one week by eating more bacon is too hard to pass for most people.

 

What’s Allowed And What’s not?

The Ketogenic diet requires a high intake of fat to as much as eighty percent (80%); while allowing a very low intake of carbohydrates to only about 5% or less.  

 

Keto Diet 101 A Beginners Guide 3

Foods that are NOT allowed in Keto are as follows:

  • Any grains such as rice, pasta, bread, beer, crackers, chips. Even the high fiber whole wheat pasta, red rice, and most gluten-free bread are not allowed.

 

  • Starchy Vegetables such as potatoes, corn, sweet potatoes, and beets. These veggies are high in carbs as well.

 

  • High sugared fruits such as mangoes, bananas, apples, oranges, pineapples, grapes, etc, as well as fruit juices.  While it is surprising that fruits appear on the not-to-eat list on Keto Diet, remember that fruits are high in sugar and carbs.

 

  • Dairy including yogurt, cottage cheese, and condensed milk.  While dairy may be a high source of protein, it still contains carbs and therefore should be avoided.

 

  • Legumes like peas and beans.  While these are high in protein and other nutrients, they are also high in carbs. 

 

  • Honey and any kind of sugar including sugary drinks.  All kinds of sugar must be avoided. There may be foods with “hidden” sugar such as sodas, processed foods, cocktails, sports drinks, salad dressings, etc. Be sure to always check the label to avoid these hidden traps for sugar.

 

Keto Diet 101 A Beginners Guide 4

On the other hand, these foods are recommended in Keto Diet:

  • Meat and Poultry.  The fun part of keto is that high volumes of meat are allowed. Lechon, liempo, bacon, and steak are all suitable for intake.

 

  • Cheese.  While dairy is not allowed, cheese is high in fat with zero carbohydrates.

 

  • Berries and Avocado.  Berries and Avocadoes are some of the few fruits that are allowed because it is very low in sugar.  

 

  • Veggies.  Most of the vegetables not mentioned above are allowed in Keto diet because it is low in carbs.

 

Should I jump into the Keto Diet?   

While Keto Diet proves to be beneficial to patients with epilepsy, and some other diseases, it is advised to practice caution before jumping into it. Just like any other diet, it still depends on a person’s general health and well-being. Be sure to consult a nutritionist or a professional before adopting any diet scheme.
