Keto This, Keto That, we all have come across this word at some point in our lives. Keto is a term which everyone is obsessed with, at least according to the current trends in the culinary world. While some people prefer to follow their diet plans according to the current trends in fitness, we believe that the us as consumers should always make an informed decision to live healthier and stay healthier!
So the first question which we need to address is the really wise one; what is keto?
Ketogenic diet is a low-carb diet (Abs>Carbs!) where the idea is to get energy from fats and proteins and less from carbohydrates. Speaking in the layman’s terms, eliminating an undesirable friend from your circle will help you focus on other friends to help in to live a more healthy and fruitful day.
While most diets also focus on the additional health benefits provided by the nutrient-rich food, Keto’s only aim is to focus on bringing down the number displayed on your weighing machine. While it claims to alleviate weight loss, increase the resistance against cancer and heart diseases, more research is required in those areas. So, just like the movies, we too are obliged to give you a disclaimer before the main blog; Consult a professional before trying out the diets and always prioritise your health over everything else!
Curated below is a list of Keto Recipes that you can try out at a magical space called The Kitchen. Experiment with ingredients and concoct something worth remembering!
