Keto Mediterranean Meals

Food for ketogenic diet

If you’ve been trying to lose weight, chances are you’ve come across some keto Mediterranean meals already. The rise in popularity of the keto diet has seen a lot more people looking into it as a way of losing weight and living a healthy lifestyle.

What are Keto Mediterranean Meals?

Before we can start to check out the different keto Mediterranean meals, we must first understand what the ketogenic diet is all about.

A keto diet is when you eat food high in fats, moderate in proteins, and low in carbohydrates. In this type of diet, you are forcing your body to start using fat as its primary fuel source. When you burn more fat, you lose more weight.

Generally speaking, once the body receives the nutrients from a meal, the first thing it burns will be carbohydrates. These carbs will then be turned into glucose which is the body’s primary source of energy. When there is an excess of carbs, you then end up storing more excess fats for later use.

What happens when the carbs are no longer available? The body will now turn to the next available source of energy, which is body fat. Body fat can only be a source of energy when all the glucose stores in the body are depleted. This can take up to three days or more depending on body composition or amount of daily carb intake.

For a ketogenic diet, it is recommended that you keep the daily intake of carbohydrates between 20 to 50g. Do not worry as you can still have healthy restaurant food that is still ketogenic.
