The Keto Fat Myth

Many people think that to eat a ketogenic diet you have to eat lots of fat.

let me clarify something very important here: Fat intake has nothing to do with you getting in ketosis!

TO GET IN KETOSIS YOU HAVE TO RESTRICT CARBS, not add fat.

Especially when you have some pounds to shed, it is very important we give our body the chance to burn that energy off.

That will ever happen when you eat too much dietary fat.

Many people told me that some of my recipes do not contain enough fat to be ketogenic. That is a false statement. The reason you eat more fat on a keto diet is in order to supply the needed calories to reach your daily requirement. If you were to eat no fat at all and limit your carbs as well your body would have to burn it’s own fat for fuel, which is exactly what we want in most cases.

So don’t be afraid of trying new recipes, like my nutrient dense Fisherman’s Eggs as long as the carbs are low, and they are clean whole foods, you should be fine! – Oh and of course grain free 😉
