What is a Ketogenic Diet?

A keto diet is well-known for being a low carb diet, in which the body produces ketones in the liver to be used as energy. It’s referred to by many different names – ketogenic diet, low carb diet, low carb high fat (LCHF), and so on. Though some of these other “names” have different standards, we’ll stick with the standards of keto.

When you eat something high in carbs, your body will produce glucose and insulin. Glucose is the easiest molecule for your body to convert and use as energy, so it will be chosen over any other energy source.

Insulin is produced to process the glucose in your bloodstream, by taking it around the body.

Since the glucose is being used as a primary energy, your fats are not needed and are the-refore stored.

Typically on a normal, higher carbohydrate diet, the body will use glucose as the main form of energy.

By lowering the intake of carbs, the body is induced into a state known as ketosis.

I am not a doctor or nutritionist. I am not recommending any specific diet. This is my meal plan and I have used recipes accumulated over time. This is simply put together by me.

This meal plan is based on a 1500 calorie macro breakdown. Should you need more or less please adjust the recipes using one of the many free macro calculators.

For this meal plan the following is the gram breakdown per day:

Calories: 1500

5% Carbs: 20 grams

25% Protein: 63 grams

70% Fat: 129 grams

For purposes of this meal plan, I am using NET CARBS not total carbs.

You should be able to replace any breakfast with a bulletproof coffee. If you choose to have the coffee as well as the breakfast you WILL be over in your macros. Black coffee is acceptable.

If you are still hungry at the end of the day enjoy a delicious fat bomb.

Chicken is always to be cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F.

Most of these recipes are for 1-2 people. If you are doing a salad or snack plate, you will double the recipe for 2 people. I hope you enjoy it!
