So maybe you’ve started on the Keto diet but you are not seeing the results you expected. In this video, I’m going to be giving you my top tips on what to eat for weight loss on the Keto diet. What’s up guys, Anne here from Think Natural Health. We are passionate about wellness and we release videos every week so you should consider subscribing to our channel but today – let’s talk about Keto. In my previous video I went over the basics of what Keto is and how to do it. If you missed that and haven’t seen it then you can check the card above now and go ahead and watch that. Today I’ll be going over the food to eat and what not to eat on Keto.
Lets go. So the first thing you want to do is try and find low-carb alternatives to the really common carby foods that we eat like rice, pasta, breads, biscuits. The most common one would be cauliflower rice, every one has kinda heard of that, but there’s actually a lot of different vegetables rices that you can try and I would really recommend doing some research because some of them have fantastic nutritional profiles. The second thing you’re going to want to do is eat plenty of nutrient-dense fats, like grass-fed butter, really good quality olive oil and coconut oil and avocados. Stay away from the heavily refined oils and butters. They do not allow your liver to function properly – they clog it all up, which is bad because that is where the 6 fat burning hormones are produced. So some really great examples of food you want to eat on Keto are calciferous vegetables, I’m talking kale, cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts.
There is an amazing recipe for cauliflower wraps that I’m going to link down below. It is a great substitute, really easy to make and it will help you miss carbs just that little bit less. As for the foods not to eat, well, the list is quite extensive. So we know not to eat carbs, we’ve been over that, but there are several other things you should bear in mind. So when trying to pick healthy foods on the Keto diet you want to bear a few things in mind.
One of them is that you don’t want to spike your insulin levels more than what you have to. Every time you eat you will spike your insulin levels but you want to try and maintain that and keep it low and that’s why we do intermittent fasting, but that’s for another video. So foods you want to try and avoid are starchy foods like potatoes, very much sweet potatoes, fruit, yoghurt, milk, beans – anything like that.
I know that each of those foods sound healthy on their own and they are, a lot of them have really great nutritional properties but sadly they also score high on the glycaemic index which means you’re going to end up with a massive spike in insulin – and that is a huge no-no. When you have a spike in insulin, when these things are converted really quickly into sugar, you end up putting the fat burning process on hold anywhere in between 24 hours and 72. That is a huge no-no on Keto! When first starting out on Keto it may seem like your options are limited, and I know it can come across like that. But with a little bit of research, I honestly, I can tell you right now, you can find a substitute for just about anything. And I have some of my own that I will be doing in another video. There you have it guys. Follow these tips and avoid these traps and I guarantee you will start to see some really great weight loss. Have fun on your Keto journey, make sure and put any comments you have down below and I will see you in the next video.
