WHERE THOSE KETONES COME FROM?

When short of glucose, our liver starts producing ketones from
our fat deposits.
When on a ketogenic diet, we consume a lot of fats and animal
proteins and very few carbohydrates.
The best thing about this diet is that you will never feel
hungry.
However, precise recommendations, carbs, protein, and fats
balancing, and some specific products must be prescribed by a
professional dietician or a nutrition adviser with due account to
your specific muscle-to-fat ratio, lifestyle, habitual calorie intake
and expenditure, age, endocrine profile, and constitution.
WHAT TO EAT?
Fish
Seafood
Low-carb vegetables (cauliflower, cabbage, avocado,
broccoli, zucchini)
Meat
Eggs
Natural fat sauces
High-fat dairy
Nuts
Berries
Water
Coffee
Tea
Bone Broth
WHAT TO AVOID?
Grains
Beans
Legumes
Fruits
Starchy vegetables
Sugars
Low-fat dairy
Alcohol
Sweetened beverages
However, magic may sound, the original menu with a precise
ratio of fats, protein, and carbohydrates still depends on any
specific and personal factors such as the constitution, habitual
calorie intake, muscle-to-fat ratio, etc., and must be developed
by a professional dietician.
We don’t use sugar to sweeten the foods, but there are some
great substitutes:
Stevia – Gl: 0
This herb is also known as the sugar leaf. It lowers blood
pressure, has an anti-inflammatory effect, and can be used by
people with diabetes.
Allulose – Gl: 0
Made of natural monosaccharides, this is the most sugar-like
sweetener in the market.
Erythritol – Gl: 0
This is a substance contained in fruit, vegetables, and sweet
corn. It’s low in calories and doesn’t affect the blood sugar level.
Let us finish with the main tip of keto baking: to avoid lumps,
keep all ingredients at room temperature before cooking.
