Is It Necessary To Include High Fat Intake In A Ketosis Diet, Or Is It Just A Convenience, Because Isn’t The Idea To Burn One’s Body Fat To Make Up For The Lesser Caloric Intake?

Hi, It is actually necessary to include more healthy fat in your diet if you want to follow keto diet. It is one of the major differences between low-carb diet and ketogenic diet. (low-carb diet does not emphasize on eating more fat while ketogenic diet does) Ketogenic diet is a diet that is high in fat, adequate in protein and low in carbohydrates. Generally, the macronutrient ratio varies within the following ranges: 60-75% of calories from fat (or even more), 15-30% of calories from protein, and 5-10% of calories from carbs. In other words, the fat-protein-carbs ratio should be around 7:2:1. You can include more healthy fat by eating more: Coconut oil Olive oil Avocado Organic butter Nuts (Almonds, Walnuts, Cashews…) Seeds (Flaxseeds, Chia seeds…) Cheese If you want to learn more about Keto diet, you can read my blog post where I listed all useful resources of ketogenic diet.

    Does keto make you lose fat faster?

    I have a friend that does cutting and bulking phases, and he told me that it's really hard to lose fat on diets that have more than 5-10% carbs and if you want to lose fat, you will do it much faster in ketosis. Is is this true?

    Do I dare try to answer this? It might be true depending on how you respond, follow the diet, train and handle carbs. Overall caloric intake (cal in vs cal out) will have some play. But, if your asking if dropping below 5-10% carbs and merely getting yourself into 'keto' will make you cut, then no. Do your research and read up before trying is my best advice.

    Keto will cause your body to primarily burn fat for fuel. I guess this makes it easier to lose fat, but not sure whether it guarantees losing fat faster. Several variables like fat %, calorie deficit and genetics come into it.
