However, I’ve found that many clients are uneducated about what Keto means and is all about, and how to integrate the Keto lifestyle into their daily lives.
So, I put together an informative post that will hopefully demystify Keto for you, educate you about the benefits of a Keto diet, and get you on the Keto band wagon.
Without further ado, here’s the top 5 things you should know about our Keto meal delivery service!
1. Keto Meals are Low-Carb
To tell you the truth, Keto is just a new name for a concept that has been around for a long time!
What they all have in common is a low intake of net carbs with moderate intakes of protein and fats.
The aim of these diets is to lower insulin levels in your body, which is a hormone that regulates the storage of fat. When insulin levels are lowered, your body begins to store less fat and instead burn it for fuel.
Makes sense, right?
2. Keto Meals Taste Great
Keto meals are higher in fat, and fat equals flavor!
One thing is for sure, if you order Keto meals, your tastebuds will not be disappointed!
3. Keto is Easy to Integrate Into Your Lifestyle
Because the concept of low-carb diets has been around for a long time, many food establishments offer low-carb alternatives to cater to this growing demographic of patrons.
In addition, simple substitutes to regular menu items can make them low-carb. If an entree you’re ordering comes with chicken, rice and vegetables, you can make the entree keto-friendly by subbing the rice for some avocado, a cream sauce or additional vegetables.
Most food establishments are willing to accommodate these small changes, which will make staying on track that much easier.
4. Many Variations of the Keto Diet
The traditional nutrient breakdown for the Ketogenic diet is: 75% fat, 20% protein and only 5% carbs.
Does this sound a little EXTREME to you? It does to us too!
It’s very hard on the digestive system to breakdown that much fat. In fact, although it may help you lose weight, it could create other health problems. Essentially, trading one problem for another.
Here at TMC, we do healthy Keto meals a different way. While still limiting your carb intake to 10% of your daily calories, we reduce the fat amount to 45-50% of your daily calories and up protein to 40%.
The carbs that you are getting with a Taylor Made Keto Meal will always be high in fiber and low in sugar. Expect to find: asparagus, spinach, kale, zucchini or zoodles, spaghetti squash, brussel sprouts, cauliflower and broccoli.
By integrating more of these fibrous vegetables in to your low carb diet, your body will be better able to digest the higher fat content that you are consuming. Thus, cutting back on digestive issues associated with a high fat diet.
We also increase the protein percentage to help you feel fuller for longer. In addition to including healthy meat, poultry and seafood options in your menu, we also increase our protein ranges by incorporating more protein (and fat) laden nuts, seeds and cheeses.
All in all, this more balanced approach will help you meet your weight-loss goals without starving your body of much needed nutrients and fiber!
