Nutritionists look at the Keto Diet

Keto, News, Opinion

When looking at what most people eat on the Keto Diet we always see a little too much of the same things. Most people are consuming a lot of bacon, eggs, steak, and butter. And I love all those things too but variety in your diet is always a good thing. Too much of any one thing most of the time leads to trouble.

Since I’m half Korean and married to a Filipina I’ve been exposed to all kinds of different foods that are keto friendly but not part of the typical Keto Diet repertoire. Look to other ethnicities for interesting combinations to get out of the steak, egg, and bacon rut.

While the jury is still out on its long-term benefits, the keto diet — which restricts carbs and promotes fats so your body starts relying primarily on fat for energy — has become a popular avenue to lose weight.
However, considering that many fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes all contain enough carbohydrates to put you out of the fat-burning state of ketosis, it can be tough to plan your meals to make sure they’re keto-friendly while also allowing you to get the fiber, minerals, and vitamins you need to keep your body running healthfully.
INSIDER talked to registered dietitian nutritionists about what a full day of healthy eating looks like on keto, and what you should take into consideration when planning your meals for the day.
