    Today is National Keto Day. Who knew??

    I had no idea this existed. Have at it people! It’s not that hard. Just cut out most of the carbs you are consuming and you’re well on your way. You don’t need a diet plan or a dietician to tell you what to eat. Just look at your next meal and remove the carbs. […]

  • Vegan website claims keto diets damage your heart… unless it’s the vegan version

    Any honest site reporting on ketogenic diets will tell you that you can go keto whether you concentrate on animal or plants. The difference is in satiety.

  • Can you eat sweet potatoes on the Keto Diet?

    The short answer is yes if you limit the amount. I would recommend on days where you want to eat a sweet potato to severely restrict the other carbs you will eat the rest of that day. After all a SWEET POTATO is a double carbohydrate whammy. A sweet potato is a type of starchy […]

  • Non-fat sour cream may not be keto-friendly

    Regular sour cream gets its thick, smooth texture from fat. To achieve the same texture and mouthfeel without fat, manufacturers typically add thickeners, gums, and stabilizers like maltodextrin, corn starch, guar gum, and xanthan gum. Given that these ingredients are derived from carbs, they can increase the carb content of low fat sour cream a […]
