Meal planning basically means that you eat a minimal amount of carbohydrates and a greater amount of good fats and proteins. The key is to eliminate sugars and starches from your diet for maximum results. This means that you get to eat all the wonderful foods you want and still burn massive amounts of body fat. I have referred to many scientific studies that show that a keto diet makes it easier to lose weight and control your blood sugar and appetite.
Here are the basics:
EAT: meat, fish, eggs, vegetables that grow above ground, and natural fats (like butter). Your best bet is to eat low Glycemic Index carbs like leafy green veggies that grow above the ground.
AVOID: sugar (even in the form of juice and fruit) and starchy foods (like bread, pasta, rice, and starchy vegetables like potatoes).
Eat when you’re hungry until you are satisfied.
It’s that simple. You do not need to count calories or weigh your food.
There are good scientific reasons why the keto diet works. When you avoid sugar and starches, your blood sugar stabilizes and the level of the fat-storing hormone insulin drops. This increases your fat burning and makes you feel more satiated. As a rule, try to keep your carbohydrate intake under 50 grams daily, but obsessive measurement is not required if you simply keep an eye on the types of foods you consume.
VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE
You shouldn’t have to feel restricted by this diet. Fish, poultry, and meat are all on the “eat” list, so you can feel free to enjoy them as much as you like! The following is a “generic” food list which shows you the variety of foods you can enjoy with this lifestyle. Please note that this list does not take into account any sauces, seasoning, or special preparation methods which may alter the carb counts that must be individually
