Ketogenic Diet:  A complete Guide to  Heart-Healthy Low-Carb Eating


The ketogenic diet also referred to as the keto diet, is a low-carb, high-fat diet that aims to put the body in a state of ketosis, where it burns fat for energy instead of carbohydrates.

The goal of the ketogenic diet is to drastically reduce carbohydrate intake and replace it with heart-healthy fats.

The ketogenic diet is typically high in fat, moderate in protein, and very low in carbohydrates.

Healthy fats that can be included in the diet which are good for the heart and overall body health are olive oil, avocado, nuts, and seeds.

A ketogenic diet includes heart-healthy protein sources like those found in meat, fish, eggs, and dairy products.

Non-starchy vegetables, such as leafy greens, broccoli, cauliflower, and bell peppers, can also be consumed in large amounts.

Consuming processed foods, added sugars, and processed meats should be avoided as they might increase the risk of heart disease.

The ketogenic diet has some benefits for heart health, including weight loss and improved cholesterol levels.

In addition to the diet, regular physical activity and stress management are important for overall heart health.
