http://ketohq.com/what-is-keto/ - The keto craze is out there. You have probably heard someone you know referencing the ketogenic diet or Keto. So what exactly is keto? As much as I hate Wiki I’m going to let them lay out a foundation for you: The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that in medicine is used primarily to treat difficult-to-control epilepsy in children. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates.

Alright so there you have it. A low-carb, high-fat diet that forces your body to burn fats                                
instead of carbohydrates. Sounds pretty simple, right? There is a basic guideline for                        
what the ketogenic diet is. If you want more detailed info, go here:                        

So what kind of foods are we going to eat when on the ketogenic diet? Let’s go through                                  
a sample day of what I would eat. Remember you are trying to stay under 25 net carbs.                                  
That can be more or less depending on personal preference. PerHealthy Eatinga net                       
carb is:  
Net carbsare simply the grams of total carbohydrates in a portion of food minus its                           
grams of fiber. Because fiber is a carbohydrate that your body cannot digest, it does not                              
raise your blood sugar levels or trigger an insulin response.                  
Starting off with breakfast. This one can be very simple:                  
Breakfast
Bacon and eggs. Eat as much as you want. I eat 4 or 5 strips of bacon and 3 eggs. For                                        
our sake of example I’m going 5 strips of bacon and 3 eggs. Sure you might miss toast                                  
but you’ll get over it. I did.            

Lunch
We’re going to continue to keep this simple and order from a chain restaurant many                            
people have access to. We’re going to do the Jimmy John’s Gargantuan unwich. An                          
unwich is a sandwich that is wrapped in lettuce instead of bread. It’s great and you can                                
get one delivered for around $10 with tip. I get no onion to lessen the carbs.                              

So for dinner we’re headed toBuffalo Wild Wings. This place is Keto Heaven. We’re                         
going to do a Medium order of hot wings, celery and bleu cheese. A medium order is 14                                  
wings. I’m a heavy hitter. On keto that’s OK.                

Net Carbs: 8    

Look at that. We killed it today. We were never hungry and were able to stay under 25                                  
net carbs with ease.      
If you are a visual learner then here is everything we ate with all the nutrition                              

So what do you think? This is a very brief outline of what it takes to be successful with                                    
the ketogenic diet. Some people just absolutely cannot give up bread and potatoes. If                          
you are one of those people then this will absolutely not work for you.                          
