The Keto Diet

The Keto Diet

There seems to be a new diet every few years that takes the health community by storm. It can be overwhelming deciding what to eat and how best to be your healthiest self. So let's take a look at what the Keto diet is, how it works and what we think about it.


What is The Keto Diet?

The Ketogenic “keto” diet is one that is very low in carbohydrates and high in fats. You get more calories from proteins and fats and less from carbs.

How Does it Work?

When you eat less than 50 grams of carbs a day, your body eventually runs out of fuel (blood sugar) it can use quickly. This typically takes 3 to 4 days. Then you’ll start to break down protein and fat for energy, which can make you lose weight. This is called ketosis. It's important to note that the ketogenic diet is a short term diet that's focused on weight loss rather than the pursuit of health benefits.

What Do We Think?

First of all please consult your doctor or nutritionist before starting any diet. Everyone’s body is different and it is important to choose a diet that works for you, not necessarily the diet that is trendy at the moment. The Keto diet seems like it would be good for short term weight loss, but it is not a sustainable long term goal.

Can I take Rockin’ on the Keto Diet?

Rockin’ Wellness was made with the idea of having a good balance of all nutrients. The Rockin Chocolate Cacao has 12 grams of carbs, which certainly could be incorporated into the Keto diet. If you are trying for a total carb intake of 40 grams in a day then Rockin’ would only take up 30% of your daily carb intake.
