Those people who are trying the KETO-Genic style of eating, have enjoyed more energy, quicker weight loss, a sharper mind, and less aches and pains.
Focusing on a higher fat diet, one will notice less cravings for carbohydrates and sugary choices in general.
Fats burn more slowly in our body, which makes our digestive system chew on the fat longer. These healthy fats are also very nourishing for our brain, heart, joints, and skin; all of which makes us feel rejuvenated!
Proteins, fats and oils that are used in a KETO-Genic Diet are:
Fresh-water fatty fish, Free-Range and grain-free eggs, Hormone Free and Antibiotic-free bacon, turkey, chicken, and red meat, butter or ghee (which is clarified butter), oils from Flax, Fish, Coconut, Avocados, and Olives; and nuts such as walnuts, macadamia, almonds, and pine nuts.
Depending on weight and activity level, try between 8-12 Tablespoons of fats daily, moderate proteins and abundant vegetables.
