Keto Diet Recipes: Super Quick & Easy Low-Carb Recipes Idea

Share

Keto comes from the word ‘Ketogenic’ which is a term used to describe a low-carb diet. The basic idea is to cut back most of the carbs from your meal and get more calories from fat and protein. It causes your body to produce small fuel molecules called ketones. Our brain consumes lots of energy. It can not run directly on fat but can only run on glucose or ketones. This process is called ketogenesis. It is an alternative and effective fuel source of your body when glucose (blood sugar) is in short supply. Some keto diet recipes are super easy to make but super delicious to eat. If you are trying to lose weight, it works better than fasting and can be eaten indefinitely. Keto diet maintains a steady supply of energy without the sugar peaks and has many other benefits rather than only burning fats. It helps you to stay focused and supply energy to your body.

A ketogenic diet is basically a low-carb, moderate protein, higher-fat diet that can help you burn fat more effectively and has many benefits for weight loss and overall health.
