The keto diet isn’t here for just 15 minutes of fame. It’s probably been around longer than you think. Eating high-fat and low-carbohydrates was used in the early 1900s to help children control epileptic seizures. Now the diet is used as a popular weight loss regimen.
Going keto may require a significant change in your eating habits. What’s distinct about the standard keto diet from other low-carb diets is that the fat consumed makes up 70 to 80% of your daily intake, and protein is a much smaller amount.
When on a standard keto diet, according to Harvard School of Health, for a 2000 calorie diet, the breakdown would be about 165 grams of fat, 40 grams of carbohydrates, and 75 grams of protein.
Tracking the macronutrients (carbs, protein, and fat) and daily calories yourself can get complicated and tiring. There are two tools that many keto dieters use to help them keep track of the macros they consume. 1. A scale to weigh food portion 2. Macros tracking app
Targeted keto can only be transitioned to once you have been on the standard keto diet for at least 60 days, so the body has adapted to consuming high amounts of fat. This keto plan allows you to increase your carb consumption and target the time you work out.
