What is keto diet?
Today from our granny’s treasure box, we have three mango smoothies with a keto touch. So let’s go keto with mango. But first, let’s see what really is the famous Keto diet. “Ketogenic” or keto is a term used for a diet that is low-carb. In other words, the aim behind the diet is to provide our bodies with more calories. Moreover, you can derive these calories from fat and protein and fewer from the carbohydrate family. Additionally, the keto diet involves decreasing easily digestible carbs such as white bread, soda, sugar, and pastries.
Before we get to make our three amazingly refreshing Keto mango smoothies let’s discuss a bit about why is keto so important.
Why is it important?
When you daily consume fewer than 50 grams of carbs, consequently your body runs out of its energy very quickly, i.e. blood sugar. Moreover, this process usually consists of 3 to 4 days. Furthermore, it makes you lose weight by breaking down fat and protein. the entire process is what we call ketosis . However, it is very pertinent to note here that ketogenic diet should be short-term based. Most importantly keto diet should focus on weight loss only.
