The “keto” in a ketogenic diet comes from the fact that it makes the body produce small fuel molecules called “ketones”. 2 This is an alternative fuel for the body, used when blood sugar (glucose) is in short supply. Ketones are produced if you eat very few carbs (that are quickly broken down into blood sugar) and only moderate amounts of protein (excess protein can also be converted to blood sugar).

    Fresh meat from a butchers won't have fillers in it. Tesco value burgers for £1.19 are not going to be 80%+ meat, they'll have filler.
    The best example of this - Pricey pork/cumberland sausages from my local butchers have 1.6g carbs per 2 sausages, and I like to eat 6 or 8 for a meal. Tesco cumberland sausages have 7.6g carbs per 2, and their pork have 10.6g!!!!! of carbs per 2 sausages. 8 of those would have me at 42g+ of carbs in 1 meal, well over my limit. 8 of my butchers sausages barely passes 10g of carbs.
