Don’t just go keto – do it the RIGHT way for real results. Follow these healthy keto tips…
It seems everyone is jumping on the keto bandwagon these days, touting ketogenic eating as the new healthy go-to diet. However, as with any diet, there is a right way and a wrong way to do it, and too many keto enthusiasts emphasize the wrong things – which can lead to worse health instead of better. If you think the keto diet just means eliminating carbs, think again! If you really want to enjoy the potential health benefits of ketosis, you have to learn how to go keto the right way. This means eating clean and healthy foods – not just cutting out carbs.
For example, 80% of all antibiotics sold in the U.S. are given to commercial livestock animals, and many processed meats include unhealthy levels of nitrates. While meat is a popular component of the keto diet, be sure you are eating meat from the cleanest sources you can find – organic and grass-fed if possible, or at the very least, with no added nitrates.
As this article explains,
Eating healthy the keto way does not mean eating commercially-bought bacon for breakfast, a fast food burger for lunch, and a one-pound steak for dinner, with nothing else on your plate. It does mean eating organic, hormone-free and non-GMO proteins, plenty of fiber in the form of vegetables and some low-sugar fruits, and, most importantly, healthy sources of organic, toxin-free fats.
For a truly healthy diet – keto or otherwise – you need to be eating lots of multi-colored vegetables, as well as a variety of healthy fats, including organic, grass-fed butter, organic flaxseed oil, avocado oil, extra-virgin olive oil, coconut oil, wild salmon, raw nuts and seeds, and avocados.
