The Keto Diet
How does it work? Keto is a high-fat, low carb diet that aims to emphasise weight loss through fat burning. The diet comes with heavy carb restrictions and encourages your body to enter a state of ketosis (when your body breaks down both dietary and stored body fat into substances called ketones).
What kinds of food can you eat? Low carb veggies like spinach, kale and lettuce, along with broccoli, cauliflower and cucumbers. Avoiding starchy root foods like carrots, potatoes, turnips and parsnips. You'll increase your fat intake by eating fatty meats like chicken thighs, rib-eye steaks, grass-fed ground beef, fattier fish like salmon, beef brisket or pork shoulder, and bacon.
