If you are looking for a healthy cooking oil, extra virgin olive oil should be your staple. A recent study found this to be the healthiest oil for baking, cooking, and deep frying at high temperatures. This is because extra virgin olive oil contains a high-quantity of stable fats and antioxidants that protect the oil from breaking down into toxic chemicals.
The ketone bodies are possibly anticonvulsant; in animal models, acetoacetate and acetone protect against seizures. The ketogenic diet results in adaptive changes to brain energy metabolism that increase the energy reserves; ketone bodies are a more efficient fuel than glucose, and the number of mitochondria is increased. This may help the neurons to remain stable in the face of increased energy demand during a seizure, and may confer a neuroprotective effect.[56]
Spices have carbs in them, so make sure you are adding them to your counts. Sea salt is preferred over table salt, as it is usually mixed with powdered dextrose. Most pre-made spice mixes will have sugars added to them, so make sure you read the nutrition label beforehand to make sure you know what’s inside. If you have the choice, never include added sugar into your spice blends or food.

Hi Maya. I LOVE your site!! Interesting, informative with fab recipes and ideas. Hubby and I have just started eating low carb and I have to say, we are not finding it too difficult and I already feel sooo much better!! I find the hardest part is choosing low carb veg, I feel as if we are not eating enough. Any suggestions on how to get more veggies into our diet?

Sulforaphane is a compound that is created when we crush or chew cruciferous vegetables. Once it is digested, sulforaphane activates a cytoprotective (cell-protecting) pathway that protects the cells from oxidative stress and removes toxins from the body. This is one of the main reasons why cruciferous vegetable consumption is linked to improved cognitive function and decreased cancer and heart disease risk.


Planuhing mabuti ang mga kakainin – Kung unang beses pa lamang susubok sa Keto Diet Philippines, tiyak na hindi ka pa pamilyar sa mga ‘keto foods’ na dapat mong kainin. Napakagandang idea kung magpaplano sa iyong mga kakainin. Halimbawa: Kung nais mong pumayat, kahit huwag nang sundin ang 75-percent fat ration ng kinakain. Kahit mga 30 percent lamang ng fat, ang ibang taba ay magmumula na sa sarili mong fat storage.

Ano ang mga epekto ng ketosis


For patients who benefit, half achieve a seizure reduction within five days (if the diet starts with an initial fast of one to two days), three-quarters achieve a reduction within two weeks, and 90% achieve a reduction within 23 days. If the diet does not begin with a fast, the time for half of the patients to achieve an improvement is longer (two weeks), but the long-term seizure reduction rates are unaffected.[44] Parents are encouraged to persist with the diet for at least three months before any final consideration is made regarding efficacy.[9]
You know, working in this industry for over 8 years now I have been able to notice the consumer perception on the completely irrelevant details I listed above. No ingredients, no studies, no side-effects, no benefits. I wrote nothing about the product. But if I were to write about the company’s history, mission and dedication to providing their customers a healthy lifestyle, I would definitely win over a big batch of them.
Tunay na tagapagligtas ng buhay ang Keto Guru para sa akin. Naaksidente ako ilang taon ang nakalipas, hindi ako makagalaw ng 8 buwan pagkatapos nito. Sa panahong ito nagkaroon ako ng halos 32 kilo! Sinimulan kong maglakad unti-unti, sa tulong ng tungkod ngunit siyempre walang paraan na makapag-ehersisyo ako. Napakahina ko pa rin at mas pinahirapan ako ng labis na timbang upang makabalik sa hugis. Ang kaibigan ko ang nagbigay sa akin ng Keto Guru , kababalik lang niya galing Indiya. Sinubukan niya ito doon at nag-uwi din siya. Niregaluhan niya ako ng dalawang pakete. Siyempre hindi ako umasa ng anuman, nagpasya lang akong subukan ito. Ginamit ko ito ayon sa tagubilin: isang beses sa isang araw. Napansin ko ang unang mga resulta sa isang linggo, hindi parang nagbawas ako ng marami ngunit nagsimulang gumana ng mas mabuti ang aking katawan, naging mas madali ang metabolismo, atbp., naramdaman ko lang ito. Sa unang dalawang linggo praktikal na naiwasan ko ang 4 kilo na walang binabago sa aking buhay! Nawala ang sobrang 26 na kilo sa loob ng 3 buwan. Napakasaya ko, sa tingin ko napakaswerte ko na nalaman ng aking kaibigan ang produktong ito sa Indiya, kung hindi 89 na kilo pa rin ang timbang ko.

Pwedeng mag-ehersisyo kick out ka sa ketosis


Ito ay isang hindi kapani-paniwalang pakiramdam! Kapag may isang bagay kang gusto at hindi mo ito makamit at pagkatapos nangyari ang isang himala. Nagbawas ako ng 10 kilo sa ngayon at patuloy akong magbabawas. Hindi maintindihan ng aking mga kaibigan kung ano ang nangyayari, akala nila hindi ako kumakain ng anuman at nag-aalala sila! Hindi ko gustong sabihin sa kanila ang anuman, hahayaan ko silang mag-alala))))

Early studies reported high success rates; in one study in 1925, 60% of patients became seizure-free, and another 35% of patients had a 50% reduction in seizure frequency. These studies generally examined a cohort of patients recently treated by the physician (a retrospective study) and selected patients who had successfully maintained the dietary restrictions. However, these studies are difficult to compare to modern trials. One reason is that these older trials suffered from selection bias, as they excluded patients who were unable to start or maintain the diet and thereby selected from patients who would generate better results. In an attempt to control for this bias, modern study design prefers a prospective cohort (the patients in the study are chosen before therapy begins) in which the results are presented for all patients regardless of whether they started or completed the treatment (known as intent-to-treat analysis).[19]
Ayon sa mga pag-aaral, ang Keto Diet ay isang klase ng pagdidiyeta na kaunti lamang ang carbohydrates at marami ang fats. Ito ay kilala rin sa tawag na low-carb, high-fat diet. Naihahalintulad ito sa sumikat na diet plan nong 1863 na tinawag na Banting, at Atkins diet naman noong 1972. Ang pagkakaiba lamang ay, mas istrikto ang Ketogenic diet pagdating sa porsyento ng mga pagkain. Ito ay dapat na 75 perent fat, 20 percent protein, at five (5) percent carbohydrates na nanggagaling sa mga non-startchy vegetables.

When you’re eating the foods that get you there (more on that in a minute), your body can enter a state of ketosis in one to three days, she adds. During the diet, the majority of calories you consume come from fat, with a little protein and very little carbohydrates. Ketosis also happens if you eat a very low-calorie diet — think doctor-supervised, only when medically recommended diets of 600 to 800 total calories.

This ingredient produces more energy. It can increase your body’s ability to generate more power and electricity that keeps you more active.  Freeing up the fatty acids of your body, it prevents fat depositing in different parts of your body. Almost all natural weight loss supplements use this element for producing energy. As a consequence of using this element, your brain functions actively(4). Moreover, it helps in better heart and muscle movement.    
Milk is limited. There are no long-term risks to eating Mediterranean, says Cohen. But you may be put off if you’re big on eating a lot of milk and rely on it to get all the calcium you need. You’ll get to eat cheese and yogurt, but in smaller amounts. "To get enough calcium in the diet without milk, one would need to eat enough yogurt and cheese, or seek nondairy calcium sources," says Cohen. If needed, drink skim milk. Otherwise, nondairy calcium sources include fortified almond milk, sardines, kale, and tofu made with calcium sulfate. (30)

A survey in 2005 of 88 paediatric neurologists in the US found that 36% regularly prescribed the diet after three or more drugs had failed, 24% occasionally prescribed the diet as a last resort, 24% had only prescribed the diet in a few rare cases, and 16% had never prescribed the diet. Several possible explanations exist for this gap between evidence and clinical practice.[34] One major factor may be the lack of adequately trained dietitians who are needed to administer a ketogenic diet programme.[31]


Masyadong maraming ehersisyo ay maaari ring maputol ang mga antas ng hormone at ititigil ang iyong panahon. Siyempre, ang ehersisyo sa moderation ay isang mahusay na paraan upang manatiling malusog at magkasya. Ang mas matinding pagsasanay, tulad ng uri na ginagawa ng mga propesyonal na atleta at mananayaw, ay kadalasan ang dahilan.

In terms of weight loss, you may be interested in trying the ketogenic diet because you’ve heard that it can make a big impact right away. And that’s true. “Ketogenic diets will cause you to lose weight within the first week,” says Mattinson. She explains that your body will first use up all of its glycogen stores (the storage form of carbohydrate). With depleted glycogen, you’ll drop water weight. While it can be motivating to see the number on the scale go down (often dramatically), do keep in mind that most of this is water loss initially.
I love prepping meat days in advance, so I don’t have to cook meat for every meal. Organic processed meats are quick and easy, but they also cost more than cooking, so it’s up to you. Also, be sure to save bacon grease for cooking other foods. I use bacon grease when I fry veggies (if I need extra fat) and chicken and it tastes great! Avoid sauces unless you are using low carb meat sauces or dips.

In one week my husband lost 1.5 kg because of Keto diet and recipes. Thank you for the insights and tips. I would like to have a complete recipe for meals everyday and hoping by subscribing I will receive try my mail. I will keep u posted. It takes 2 to tango. The one who wants to diet must be cooperative with the plan and execution while the other person who is preparing the food must be patient to the dieting person. Its not easy to change meals so patience is required 

Net carbs is simply total carbs minus fiber and non-digestible sugar alcohols, like erythritol. (This doesn’t apply to high glycemic sugar alcohols, like maltitol.) We don’t have to count fiber and certain sugar alcohols in net carbs, because they either don’t get broken down by our bodies, are not absorbed, or are absorbed but not metabolized. (Read more about sugar alcohols here.)

Almost all diets start with a promise of natural and healthy weight loss. However, a few diets end with disappointing results and bring health hazards for you. They can even give you many side effects that can increase the risk of developing many diseases like cardiac arrest, end-organ failure, kidney failure, etc.  Moreover, sometimes, improper uses and ignorance become an impediment for achieving a weight loss goal.  

A computer program such as KetoCalculator may be used to help generate recipes.[47] The meals often have four components: heavy whipping cream, a protein-rich food (typically meat), a fruit or vegetable and a fat such as butter, vegetable oil, or mayonnaise. Only low-carbohydrate fruits and vegetables are allowed, which excludes bananas, potatoes, peas, and corn. Suitable fruits are divided into two groups based on the amount of carbohydrate they contain, and vegetables are similarly divided into two groups. Foods within each of these four groups may be freely substituted to allow for variation without needing to recalculate portion sizes. For example, cooked broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and green beans are all equivalent. Fresh, canned, or frozen foods are equivalent, but raw and cooked vegetables differ, and processed foods are an additional complication. Parents are required to be precise when measuring food quantities on an electronic scale accurate to 1 g. The child must eat the whole meal and cannot have extra portions; any snacks must be incorporated into the meal plan. A small amount of MCT oil may be used to help with constipation or to increase ketosis.[37]

Emerging evidence suggests that eating this way may offer protective effects for those with and at risk for type 2 diabetes. For one, Mediterranean eating improves blood sugar control in those already diagnosed with the condition, suggesting it can be a good way to manage the disease. What’s more, given those with diabetes are at increased odds for cardiovascular disease, adopting this diet can help improve their heart health, according to a paper published in April 2014 in the journal Nutrients.

If you choose to make your sauces and gravies, you should consider investing in guar or xanthan gum. It’s a thickener that’s well known in modern cooking techniques and lends a hand to low carb by thickening otherwise watery sauces. Luckily there are many sauces to choose from that are high fat and low carb. If you’re in need of a sauce then consider making a beurre blanc, hollandaise or simply brown butter to top meats with.
Over 8–10 mmol/l: It’s normally impossible to get to this level just by eating a keto diet. It means that something is wrong. The most common cause by far is type 1 diabetes, with severe lack of insulin. Symptoms include feeling very sick with nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and confusion. The possible end result, ketoacidosis, may be fatal and requires immediate medical care. Learn more
Seasonings and sauces are a tricky part of ketogenic diet foods, but people use them on a regular basis to add flavor to their meals. The easiest way to remain strict here is to avoid processed foods. There are many low carb condiments and products on the market, and there’s no way to list them all. A handful of them are great, but the majority use high glycemic index sweeteners – which you want to avoid.

The nerve impulse is characterised by a great influx of sodium ions through channels in the neuron's cell membrane followed by an efflux of potassium ions through other channels. The neuron is unable to fire again for a short time (known as the refractory period), which is mediated by another potassium channel. The flow through these ion channels is governed by a "gate" which is opened by either a voltage change or a chemical messenger known as a ligand (such as a neurotransmitter). These channels are another target for anticonvulsant drugs.[7]
Before I went into ketosis and before I cared anything about keto meals chicken was a staple in our home. While I do love all things chicken, I have found that going the boneless skinless route can sometimes get old, boring, and you lose some of the fat. Remember that you don’t have to choose lean meats anymore. Can you still eat it? Of course, but you need to try to dress it up with fat anytime you can. This low carb poultry list isn’t exhaustive, but I think it’s enough to get you started.

A study with an intent-to-treat prospective design was published in 1998 by a team from the Johns Hopkins Hospital[20] and followed-up by a report published in 2001.[21] As with most studies of the ketogenic diet, no control group (patients who did not receive the treatment) was used. The study enrolled 150 children. After three months, 83% of them were still on the diet, 26% had experienced a good reduction in seizures, 31% had had an excellent reduction, and 3% were seizure-free.[Note 7] At 12 months, 55% were still on the diet, 23% had a good response, 20% had an excellent response, and 7% were seizure-free. Those who had discontinued the diet by this stage did so because it was ineffective, too restrictive, or due to illness, and most of those who remained were benefiting from it. The percentage of those still on the diet at two, three, and four years was 39%, 20%, and 12%, respectively. During this period, the most common reason for discontinuing the diet was because the children had become seizure-free or significantly better. At four years, 16% of the original 150 children had a good reduction in seizure frequency, 14% had an excellent reduction, and 13% were seizure-free, though these figures include many who were no longer on the diet. Those remaining on the diet after this duration were typically not seizure-free, but had had an excellent response.[21][22]

The only way you can know how you respond to dairy is by slowly adding it to your meals. If you eat dairy and don’t notice any issues, you will probably be okay using dairy as a great source of fat. If however, you find that after eating yogurt or cheese you feel bloated, have cramps, get diarrhea or start vomiting, you will want to eliminate dairy until you figure out the cause. In some cases, people who were previously lactose intolerant have been able to add dairy into their diets after eliminating carbs, so you just never know. Food allergies are a tricky thing.

Wondering how many carb foods you can eat and still be “in ketosis”? The traditional ketogenic diet, created for those with epilepsy consisted of getting about 75 percent of calories from sources of fat (such as oils or fattier cuts of meat), 5 percent from carbohydrates and 20 percent from protein. For most people a less strict version (what I call a “modified keto diet”) can still help promote weight loss in a safe, and often very fast, way.

“This is one of my go-to keto snacks. Sometimes, I even eat it for breakfast,” says Norbryhn, who adds that it’d also make for a great way to refuel post-workout, too. Go for full-fat cottage cheese (4%), which is way creamier than fat-free. To make, add a half cup cottage cheese in a bowl, top with two tablespoons pumpkin seeds, five halved cherry tomatoes, and top with a teaspoon of olive oil and a sprinkle of black pepper.

It’s low in saturated fat. You’re not going to feel hungry eating this way, because you can build in a variety of healthy fats. But by limiting large amounts of red or processed meats and relying heavily on monounsaturated fatty acids, like avocado, nuts, or olive oil, you’ll keep saturated fat levels low. These fats don't lead to high cholesterol the same way saturated fats do. Healthful sources of fat include olive oil, fish oils, and nut-based oils, Cohen explains. 

Get Plenty of Sodium. This might sound counter to what you’ve been told before, but your body really needs sodium. It’s one of the ways that your cells transport nutrients in and out of cells. And when you stop eating processed grains and sugar, you often get much less sodium. So when you go keto, just be sure that you’re eating salt or sodium-rich foods. If not, you will often experience fatigue.

Sounds exciting? Well, keto diets are there to help you out to avoid fasting if you are a food lover or avoid constant monitoring of your carbohydrate intake and rather start taking some foods only. A proper keto diet includes more intake of natural fats such as butter, olive oils, etc, fish and seafood, meat, eggs, cheese, vegetables which grow over the ground and less or no intake of rice, bread, pasta, noodles, fruits, chocolates, soft drinks, alcohol, fast foods etc. Keto diet also includes intake of more water, coffee, tea and red wine. All the suggested food options need to be distributed between breakfast, lunch, evening snacks and dinner to obtain the best results.
The ketogenic diet is a high fat, low carb diet that’s become increasingly popular for weight and fat loss. As we explain extensively in our keto diet mastery, the principle of the keto diet is to “eat fat to burn fat.” By heavily restricting carbs — your body’s primary fuel source — your body begins to burn your fat stores for fuel instead, which produces ketones. This state of elevated ketones in the bloodstream is called ketosis, hence ketogenic diet (1).

You can eat what you love. It’s evident that with such a variety of whole, fresh foods available to you as options, it’s easy to build meals based on the diet. And, you don’t have to eliminate your favorites, either. They may just require some tweaks. For instance, rather than a sausage and pepperoni pizza, you’d choose one piled high with veggies and topped with some cheese. You can also fit in a lot of food into one meal. Filling up on fresh foods like fruits and vegetables will allow you to build volume into meals for fewer calories.

When you start the keto diet, you are entering a new world of eating. And nowhere is that more apparent than at the supermarket. Suddenly, all of your stand-by foods like macaroni and cheese, pasta and bread are no longer on your shopping list. When you go shopping for the first few times you may feel like a fish out of water. However, with a bit of practice, you’ll feel just as comfortable as you were with your previous shopping lists.

Ba keto sanhi ng kapahamakan ang iyong metabolismo


Karamihan sa mga tao na tumatawag sa kanilang diyeta ng isang keto na diyeta ay sumusunod lamang sa isang mababang o napakababang diyeta ng carbohydrate. Ang mababang karbohidrat diets ay maaaring makatulong, hindi bababa sa maikling salita, para sa ilang mga tao na mawalan ng timbang. Gayunpaman, tulad ng sa tunay na ketogenic diet, karamihan sa mga tao ay hindi maaaring manatili sa isang napakababang diyeta karbohidrat para sa mahaba.
The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that in medicine is used primarily to treat difficult-to-control (refractory) epilepsy in children. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted into glucose, which is then transported around the body and is particularly important in fueling brain function. However, if little carbohydrate remains in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source. An elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood, a state known as ketosis, leads to a reduction in the frequency of epileptic seizures.[1] Around half of children and young people with epilepsy who have tried some form of this diet saw the number of seizures drop by at least half, and the effect persists even after discontinuing the diet.[2] Some evidence indicates that adults with epilepsy may benefit from the diet, and that a less strict regimen, such as a modified Atkins diet, is similarly effective.[1] Potential side effects may include constipation, high cholesterol, growth slowing, acidosis, and kidney stones.[3]
