Living Low carb
The science part – A low carb diet means that you eat fewer carbohydrates and a higher proportion of fat, with adequate amounts of protein as well.
Why follow a low carb lifestyle?
- Fat loss
- Reduce your hunger
- Control your sugar addiction
- Improve your clarity of thought and get rid of daily brain fog
How do I live low carb?
Often people choose to switch to a low carb way of eating once they’ve seen the benefits of keto and would like a bit more freedom with carbs. Some people even manage to stay in ketosis eating up to 50g net carbs a day, especially when exercising regularly.
We suggest that you read our lifestyle guides for keto but feel free to up your net carbs per day to 20g-50g using healthy and nutrient-dense carbs. It is not an excuse to raid the biscuit tin!
What could I add to my daily diet?
- Sweet potatoes
- Sour dough bread
- Celeriac more often
