Keto Pumpkin Spice Muffins Recipe: 

As I mentioned in my last post, I will now be sharing keto information with you that I think you will find helpful. 

Won’t the high fat intake cause high cholesterol?

A lot of research has shown that a low carb diet has an edge over low-fat diets for improving good HDL cholesterol levels as shown by one of the longest studies done on the subject and published in the journal, Annals of Internal Medicine.

I know I will miss carbs, and my old sugary favorites, what can I do?

Yes, of course, there is an adjustment period, and there may be struggles, but the truth is once you kick the carb habit, your body and mind will adjust and you will be better for it. There are many great health and meal replacement bars and shakes that really satisfy and make this new lifestyle a much more pleasant experience.

Is a low carb diet good for everyone?

Low carb diets, like the Ketogenic plan, are ideal for those who want to lose weight, are struggling with diabetes, or have prediabetes and those looking to improve their metabolic health.

Bodybuilders, athletes, strength trainers and those participating in intensive exercise can take advantage of specific plans, such as the Cyclical Ketogenic Diet or the Targeted Keto Diet, both of which are designed around working out.

How can it be healthy to cut out carbs from my diet?

A big part of a low carb diet is non-starchy vegetables, which are the healthiest carbs. It is the unhealthy carbs that are cut out, like refined sugar, sweets, and grains, including whole grains, that have a high glycemic load and which many experts believe we do not need.

How will my body run if I cut carbohydrates, aren’t they fuel for the body?

Carbs are not the only source of fuel for the body, as it runs quite well on fat when in ketosis. So not only will you get plenty of body fuel when lowering your carb intake, this is exactly what allows you to lose weight and turns your body into a fat-burning machine.

Note: Please remember that I am not a doctor so always check with your doc before taking any dietary advice.
