This video is all about the keto diet and what you need to know and understand about it.

The ketogenic diet is a very low carbohydrate diet, and it’s different from what we recommend in our Fit Father Project meal plans.

We don’t think it’s the most optimal approach for most middle-aged people who want to live healthily and have a sustainable lifestyle over the long haul.

All the calories that are in foods come from three main macronutrients: proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.

Keto diets basically eliminate carbohydrates from the diet, so the calories you’re getting come from proteins and fats.

The keto diet also doesn’t allow any high-sugar or highly processed foods, so a lot of people end up feeling healthier and lose a lot of weight, so they feel like it’s a really good solution.

The problem is, and this is my overall diet perspective, is any diet that’s restrictive from the get-go is going to cause friction in the long term.

And things that cause friction in the long term are going to set you up for derailing your progress.

Now, I am all for eating a lower carbohydrate diet, particularly if you’re cutting out a lot of bad carbs like processed sugars and grains that don’t have much nutritional value.

But, the Fit Father Project meal plans intentionally include carbs because of a few key reasons.

We discuss those reasons β€” and so much more β€” in this episode.

It’s time to learn the TRUTH about keto!

In this episode, you’ll learn:
– What the keto diet is and what its goals are.
– The importance of a healthy, functioning metabolism β€” and how to achieve it.
– How to become insulin sensitive and metabolically flexible.
– The science of intermittent fasting.
– The importance of sleep and hydration.
– And so much more!

      I did great on ketones diet the vegan version I like to increase my carbohydrates to 50 to 60 grams every four months srict keto on the fifth month I increase my carbohydrates

        Vegan keto was very difficult on my whole digestive system. Same with many of my athlete patients. Sure easy for the couch potatos but when the person needs 6000 calories a day, vegan keto is difficult. Plus on the protein side very difficult for those on less than 2000 calories a day and vegan keto to get a full amount of the full spectrum of aminos. YES, sure it might be working for some people, got to wonder how things play out in 20 years.

      I literally can’t eat carbs, unhealthy carbs make me sick and other sources of carbs eaten very sparingly.

      Ugh, no way. This diet isn’t for everyone.
