To the untrained foodie, Keto often seems like the super delicious, super indulgent and super easy solution for weight loss. It’s the unhealthy eater’s dream diet, filled with fast food, fried stuff, oil, grease and all things decadent, right?
WRONG! The Keto Diet is a highly scientific, well calculated and extremely healthy diet that requires a lot of precision, attention and dedication. The key to hitting your 70% of fat lies in consuming healthy, good fats like eggs, meat, butter, extra-virgin olive oil, nuts and avocados.
2. It actually helps you build a healthier life!
Once you’re in a rut, following one unhealthy habit with another, it’s often very difficult to pull yourself out of it. It seems like it’s just so much easier living life the way it’s going than actually try and change habits that may not even change.

3. Your will power gets stronger than ever!
How many times have you given excuses about how you’re perfectly capable of resisting any food… EXCEPT that one unhealthy indulgence. “I could never give up dessert. So, I just have a small portion”, you say.
We’re here to tell you that you CAN and you will soon want to yourself. Once you see those kilos and inches drop, your will power to say no to all the things in your life that will come in the way of your goal becomes stronger than you can imagine. It’s possible, trust us!
4. You’ll eat less and still have more energy!
Do you often feel so hungry you could eat a horse? But then when you do, you’re thrown into this slump of exhaustion and drowsiness, only to feel hungry again in no time and repeat the whole process again!
With Keto, it’s possible to break that vicious cycle and actually be more energized with less food! The fats you eat on Keto keep you satiated for longer periods of time, ensuring that you eat smaller portions less frequently. Also, when you’re on ketosis, your body makes a shift from burning carbs for energy, to burning fat for energy. And Fats there are plenty! So, your body is burning the most abundant fuel and tires much less easily.

Keto also helps reduce inflammation, which helps organs function better, specifically the coronary system. Finally, keto has proved to help lose significantly more weight than low-fat diets.
