Keto curious?

The fact that I feel bikini-confident all year round is, of course, a nice bonus. But for me, the biggest payoff of following the keto diet is the way it optimizes my health and gives me tons of energy.

. In short, the keto diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet that puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis. In this state, your body is incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy and your insulin levels are lowered. It does take extreme discipline – which I happen to have – to do it right, but if you are merely ‘keto curious’, why don’t you start by making your favorite meals ‘keto friendly’? Simply remove grains and sugar from them and add veggies and healthy fats. If you like hamburgers, for example, ditch the bun and sugary ketchup, and add some nice, aged cheese and a huge salad. Make sure to avoid processed foods and sugary drinks and enjoy your newfound energy!
