Eat up to live your keto lifestyle to the fullest! It all starts with the right balance of fats, protein, and carbohydrates. Remember, these percentage breakdowns aren’t for the area of your plate; these percentages are your macronutrient calorie intake!
To make fats 70% of your macronutrient intake, choose filling whole-fat foods and healthy oils.
These are going to be those rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Remember, not all fats are created equal, and foods high in trans fats are the ones you want to avoid.
Do you know what helps you burn fat? Lean muscle! Do you know how you build lean muscles? Protein! That’s why protein should make up 20% of your macronutrient intake. Since the energy in protein burns slower than carbohydrates, you feel satisfied longer and experience fewer cravings
To keep your body in a fat-burning state of ketosis, you want to avoid carbs, which are metabolized into glucose. When there’s too much glucose in your blood stream, ketosis can’t happen, and that means no energizing ketones! So only 10% of your macronutrient intake should be carbs, primarily from non-starchy vegetables.
Now that you know the best foods to choose, cook up some delicious keto-friendly meals with these easy-to-make recipes! Burning fat never felt (or tasted!) so good!GET YOUR MEALS
