Are you interested in the keto lifestyle?

Here at Mr Keto, we’ve put together a collection of FAQs to help you get started.

What is the “Keto Diet” exactly?

A ketogenic diet is low in carbs, moderate in protein, and high in fat. Yes, you read that right. Despite common misconception, a high fat diet can actually be beneficial for your body.

How are ketones produced?

The liver produces ketones whenever there is a lack of blood glucose and an increase in fat oxidation.

I’ve heard about exogenous ketones. What are they?

Exogenous ketones are simply ketone supplements, such as Pruvit’s KETO//OS, which are ingested to enhance the body’s ketone levels and serve as a primary source of metabolic fuel.

Atkins and ketogenic diets seem similar. How are they different?

A ketogenic diet is a lot like the introductory period of the Atkins diet. Unlike Atkins, however, carbs and protein aren’t increased over time as fat remains the primary and most important food source.

Sounds great, but I love carbs. How many carbs can I consume each day with keto?

If you love carbs, you’re not alone. Unfortunately, carbs and the sugars they release into the bloodstream are one of the worst things for your body. The amount of carbs you can consume each day with a keto diet varies from person to person, but generally, you should shoot for no more than 50 grams of carbs per day. Less than 20 grams is actually ideal.

Wait, isn’t fat a bad thing?

Not at all! The perception that fat makes you fat has been around for decades, but this is a huge misconception. On a ketogenic diet, you’re encouraged to consume olive oil, coconut oil, butter, and other healthy fats for fuel. Consuming smart fats will spur ketone production and fat loss.

How long will it be until I reach ketosis?

Believe it or not, by following a ketogenic diet your body will begin producing ketones and go into ketosis in anywhere from 2-7 days, depending on what you are eating, how much activity you are doing and some individual factors. However, true keto adaptation will take a little longer. When supplementing with KETO O//S, you will be in ketosis in about 1 hour after consuming.

Is the keto diet safe?

When properly formulated and followed, a ketogenic diet is absolutely safe for most adults. While you may experience exhaustion, nausea, and mental fog while undergoing keto adaptation, which is known as the Keto-Flu, a properly formulated ketogenic diet will almost always alleviate these symptoms.

How much should I eat while on a keto diet?

This is largely a matter of personal preference. However, in order to experience the best results, you should have fewer large meals and more keto-friendly snacks.

I’m ready to join the keto revolution, but where do I start?

The first step is to go through your cabinets and toss out any high-carb foods like cereal, soda, chips, and so on. Anything with carbs has to go.

Then, you need to put together a meal plan and take it with you to the grocery store. It should consist of beef, fish, chicken, eggs, bacon, avocados, nuts, seeds, full-fat dairy, leafy greens, and other low-carb, keto-friendly foods.
