Keto & Exercise What You Need To Know: 

I would be doing you a disservice if I didn’t talk about the keto diet and exercise, especially when sharing recipes like these. 

When people talk about keto, it usually revolves around cooking and recipes. A lot of people love to tout keto as a great way to lose weight without working out. While it’s true that you can’t out-train a bad diet, it’s also true that people who work out are more successful when it comes to lasting weight loss. Many of my readers make the mistake of ignoring exercise. Not only is exercise important for weight loss, but it is also crucial for heart health. The more exercise you add into your daily routine, the more carbs you can eat and remain in ketosis. Love sweet potatoes? Exercise! It’s honestly pretty simple. 

Exercise is beneficial to body, mind, and soul. It has many significant benefits, even at limited levels. It not only burns fat, but it boosts your metabolism and increases circulation. Daily exercise helps your body eliminate toxins through sweat glands and lymph systems. It is especially important to all low-carb weight loss programs because it regulates blood sugar levels.

Physical exercise is essential for keto diet success. Research has shown that sedentary individuals have extreme insulin reactions to even moderate amounts of carbohydrates. Exercise will teach your body how to process the carbohydrates in your diet. When you exercise regularly, youíll be able to eat more carbs over time because your body will use them efficiently and that is a real win! 

Types Of Exercise To Do On Keto: 

There are two basic types of exercise: aerobic exercise and anaerobic exercise. The best regimen combines these two forms each week.

Aerobic Excercise: 

Aerobic exercise’s primary goal is to increase your heart rate. This causes your body to consume more oxygen, and it gives all of your cells a fresh supply of oxygen. If youíve been without physical activity for a while, many of those cells have been deprived. Aerobic exercise will regenerate them and help you feel better in times when you are aren’t exercising.

If you’ve been inactive for a while, it may take some time to get used to your new aerobic workouts. You may want to get some advice from your primary care doctor or a professional aerobics instructor. Make sure to start slowly to give yourself time to adjust to your new movements. You must learn how to stretch and warm up correctly to avoid muscle strain. Some good beginning aerobic activities include walking, golf, tennis, and dancing. These activities won’t cause a lot of stress on your body, but they will get your heart moving. Start slowly and set small goals for yourself. For example, if you are starting a walking program begin by walking four blocks. Then increase your training to five blocks, then six. Your body will respond well to the exercise; after all, your body was meant to move!

Anaerobic Exercise:

Anaerobic exercise includes any activity that isn’t technically aerobic. Most of the exercises in this category build muscle mass. Weightlifting and strength training are examples of anaerobic exercises. Working out with weights is an integral part of losing weight. As you lose fat, youíll need to replace it with muscle to stay lean. Don’t be afraid of working out with weights. You won’t need to become a bodybuilder. Weight-bearing exercises like isometrics and resistance training will help improve your bone density, your posture, and your fat-burning potential.

If an exercise program is not part of your weight loss efforts, you are setting yourself up for failure. Commit to incorporating exercise into your weight loss efforts, and youíll see the results immediately.

Keto Pecan Pie Recipe:

I can’t tell you how excited I am to share this recipe! My family loves pecan pie. We love it so much we have traveled to Georgia to get the best pecan pie we’ve ever tasted and tried to have it shipped back to our home address. Sadly they wouldn’t do that, but in the end, it worked out better because that pie would have been the death of us. Today I’m sharing a pie that still needs to be eaten in moderation, but won’t put you in a sugar coma! 

Keto Pecan Pie Ingredients:

Makes ten slices of pie
5 Net carbs/serving

For the crust:

2 1/4 C. Almond flour
1/4 C. Melted butter
1 Egg beaten
1 tsp. Vanilla extract

For the filling:

1 C. Heavy whipping cream
1 C. Melted butter
1 C. Swerve brown sugar substitute
3 Eggs beaten
1 1/2 C. Chopped pecans
1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla extract

Keto Pecan Pie Directions:


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the crust, and beat on high until well combined.

3. Place the dough for the crust in a well-greased pie pan, and push it out into an even layer with your hands. Crimp the edges of the crust along the top of the pan to form a more decorative crust.
4. Poke holes throughout the bottom of the crust in the pie pan with the tines of a fork to prevent air bubbles during the pre-baking of the crust.

5. Bake the crust for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned. Remove, and set aside to cool.

6. On the stove, heat the heavy whipping cream, butter, vanilla extract and the sugar substitute over medium heat until well combined, and the mixture has begun to thicken slightly.

7. Remove the filling mixture from the heat, and allow it to cool.

8. Once cooled, add the beaten eggs slowly into the filling mixture, continually whisking as you do.


9. Layer 1 1/2 cups of chopped pecans in the bottom of the pre-baked pie crust, and pour the filling mixture on top.

10. Bake, the pie for 45-50 minutes, or until the filling, is just barely jiggling when you remove the pie from the oven.

11. For best results, allow the pie to cool to room temperature, and then place it in the fridge for a minimum of 3 hours to completely set.
