What is keto?
Keto (short for ketogenic) is a low-carbohydrate diet that involves eating a very small amount of carbohydrates, a moderate amount of protein and a high amount of fat per day (around 70 per cent of daily calories).
The diet encourages your body to use what are called ketone bodies – a type of fuel that the liver produces from stored fat – for fuel, instead of relying on sugar from carbohydrates. Essentially, it’s all about tricking your body into burning fat, which it does via a process called ketosis. Limiting carbohydrate intake to just 10 per cent of the daily diet keeps the body in a constant state of ketosis.
What do you eat?
What to eat on the keto diet will depend on your personal goals and health, but so long as you focus on real foods, it can be a very nutritious diet. Vegetables including broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, capsicum, mushrooms and leafy greens like spinach and kale are permitted, but starchy vegies such as peas and potatoes are off limits.
To meet the diet’s fat requirements, you can eat unsaturated fats such as tofu, avocados, olive oil, seeds and nuts such as almonds and walnuts, as well as saturated fats including oils, butter and cocoa butter. Low-fat products aren’t allowed.
Your protein intake comes from eggs and meat, especially fatty meats such as pork belly, lamb and chicken with the skin on. The reason protein is limited to a moderate amount is because excess protein can be converted to blood sugar in the body.
Carbohydrates such as rice, pasta, grains and bread are banned, and so are most fruits – although berries are allowed in small portions.
Should I try it?
The keto diet can encourage weight loss: an Australian study* found that obese people managed to lose an average of 15kg over a year on the keto diet – 3kg more than a standard low-fat diet. Many people find that they gain control over their appetite on keto diet and it also settles their stomach.
There may be positive impacts for your brain, too – some people say the keto diet keeps them more focused and alert.
Remember that there’s no single weight-loss diet that suits everyone. If you are keen to try the keto diet, it’s recommended that you talk to your doctor and an accredited practicing dietitian.
