Ready to add some flavor to your Keto Diet? The ketogenic, or keto diet is a low carbohydrate, moderate protein, high fat dietary plan that is designed to convert your body into a fat-burning machine. Your body normally uses glucose (sugar primarily from carbohydrates) as its main source of fuel for energy. However, if you follow the keto diet, you strictly limit your carb intake while eating only moderate amounts of protein and increasing your fat intake. If no carbs are available for fuel, your body must switch its fuel source from sugar to fat. Once this fat burning conversion takes place, you have entered the metabolic state known as ketosis, your body will also begin to burn body fat as fuel, leading to weight loss.
The keto diet is naturally (and necessarily) high in dietary fat. One healthy (and tasty) way to provide those fats is by eating nuts!
Walnuts are one of the most famous tree nuts and are rich in plant-based fats and are also a good source of B-vitamins and many minerals. Walnuts contain many nutrients, some of which include protein, folic acid, dietary fiber, magnesium, iron, thiamine, niacin, vitamin E, vitamin B6, potassium and zinc.
Pecans contain fatty acids but contain no cholesterol, making them a good choice for people suffering from high cholesterol and can even help lower bad cholesterol, or LDL. Providing fat for your keto diet while lowering LDL cholesterol lowers your risk of heart attacks and other cardiovascular diseases. Pecans are rich in oleic acid and gamma-tocopherol, a form of vitamin E that may prevent cancerous cell growth in the prostate. Finally, pecans also provide antioxidants which support cell regeneration and vitamin B for increased energy levels.
Almonds have a variety of health benefits. Almonds have been shown to increase High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL) levels and decrease the LDL-Cholesterol levels. Almonds are a rich source of B-complex vitamins and dietary fiber plus vitamin E, protein and antioxidants. The healthy fats and fibers found in almonds reduce hunger and cravings while also lowering your blood sugar levels and reducing your blood pressure.
Pistachios are both tasty and healthy. These green nuts have been shown to stabilize blood sugar levels by increasing your body's response to insulin, making them a healthy choice for people diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Recent research has also shown that pistachios increase your body's feeling of satiety or fullness, helping you reduce your calorie intake.
