Keto Diet Food List, Including The Best Vs. Worst Keto Foods

Unlike many fad diets that come and go with very limited rates of long-term success, the ketogenic diet or keto diet has been practiced for more than nine decades (since the 1920s) and is based upon a solid understanding of physiology and nutrition science. The keto diet works for such a high percentage of people because it targets several key, underlying causes of weight gain — including hormonal imbalances, especially insulin resistance coupled with high blood sugar levels, and the cycle of restricting and “binging” on empty calories due to hunger that so many dieters struggle with. Yet that’s not a problem with what’s on the keto diet food list. Rather than relying on counting calories, limiting portion sizes, resorting to extreme exercise or requiring lots of willpower (even in the face of drastically low energy levels), the ketogenic diet takes an entirely different approach to weight loss and health improvements.

    I am now on day 5 of Induction and my Ketosticks are turning to Moderate Ketosis...The middle pink color. Do I need to be in the dark pink or Heavy Ketosis to be in proper Induction? I am losing. I have been weighing every day and each day I drop weight so I think I am properly in induction but I wanted to check to see if I am suppose to be darker or not.

    Hey OldsGal!
    From what I understand, the level of ketones is not as important as the fact that your body is producing them in the first place. You are in ketosis and that's what counts and obviously you're losing so I wouldn't worry about how deep the color is on the stick! Just keep doing what you're doing, girl! Congrats!

    For Ketosis usually darker means less hydration, so as long as your showing any your there. After a few weeks I didn't show any, my understanding is that once your body adapts to burning fat for fuel it will do it more effeciently thus no spilling ketones to the stix.
