Keto Diet: Talk about diet and fitness and the discussion would automatically lead to keto diet. For the unversed, ketogenic or keto diet is the one in which you cut down on carbohydrates considerably and fuel your body with foods rich in fat. In absence of carbs, the body starts to burn fat for energy, contributing to weight loss. And while the world is following the trend, thanks to a lot of celebrities going keto, it may not suit every body type and one should always consult a nutritionist or dietitian before hopping on the keto bandwagon. One of the most popular diets in recent years, keto diet’s popularity perhaps stems from a variety of high-protein food options that one gets to eat, unlike in other diets which can be boring and bland.
A typical diet could be eggs cooked in butter for breakfast; meat, chicken or fish with salad or green vegetables for lunch or dinner and so on. Nuts and seeds too are a huge part of a keto diet since they are low on carbs and rich in fibre besides being heart healthy. And if you are new to the ketogenic world and wish to prepare your breakfast from scratch, this keto bread recipe will definitely come handy.
