So, what’s the deal? What exactly is THE Ketogenic Diet Plan? Well, it all really depends on what works for you. First of all, there are many, many, great options of how to go about a LCHF diet. LCHF stands for Low-Carb/High-Fat diet, or as we say around here, a Low Carb HEALTHY Fat Diet, thanks to Dr Jo over at Fat is My Friend. These options may – or may not – put you into dietary ketosis it depends on a variety of factors.
There are many versions of Low-Carb/High-Fat (LCHF) as both a short-term diet intended to supposedly “reset” your metabolism, and as a permanent incorporation into one’s daily way of eating. Both of these viewpoints are referred to as “diets” depending upon who is speaking.
Regardless of your opinion on what exactly defines a “diet” the first thing people want to know is what to eat. Well, if you go for a Low Carb Healthy Fat lifestyle, by far the most adaptable book for any plan would be Eat Happy by Anna Vocino.
Not sure what to eat? Just Eat Happy.
Want detailed scientific reasons for eliminating sugars, grains, and processed foods from your diet? Check out our Nutritional Ketosis page, or read a book from the Library of Luminaries. Experts across multiple fields agree. Simple carbohydrates, such as those found in syrups, candy, and soda, are not good for you. So, the overall message is: don’t consume them, or at the very least don’t consume them except on occasion.
What’s it like being Fat Fueled? Badass.
Want a meal plan? There are plenty outthere, and here is a list of the best right in one place for you. Check out the Ketosis Meal Plan page for more info on the best Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) meal plans out there.
It is important to note that if you are on The Ketogenic Diet Plan, or any other LCHF diet, then you won’t necessarily lose weight, but as a result many people seem to experience fat loss and often find relief from various health conditions once they eliminate sugars, processed foods, and grains from their standard diet.
