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.

    Have any of you keto buddies been successful in losing the 'shelf' - a visible line where exterior belly fat is overhanging the trouser belt line, even when naked?
    I suspect it's not a special case and is just a bodyfat % issue that a strict keto diet will solve eventually.
    I'm 5 feet 11' and 183lb, 38 years old. Not seen my abs in 20 years. Heaviest ever was 201lb so hoping there won't be loose skin if I lose this exterior belly fat. By which I mean jiggle fat that sits atop the abs.
    Thanks keto buddies. I'm on a 15% TDEE cut with recommended keto macros, generally under 30g net carbs though I do indulge in some non sugary alcoholic spirits and diet soda a few nights a week.

    Up your deficit to 20-30%, do some HIIT and IF.

    A lot of whether you have loose skin / permanent shelf is just going to be the results of the genetic lottery.
    I have a similar line, and I can tell you that mine is already significantly reduced. A recent post in /r/keto mentioned /r/brogress, which you might want to check out as great compendium of what it men look like after weight loss.
