From fitting in some regular exercise to reducing the junk food, weight loss results can be achieved in a variety of ways. For some people, that may be on the Keto diet. While it may come with some side effects, some people have seen themselves beat the bulge on this diet plan. Carbohydrates are essential for a person’s metabolism, however, the Keto diet suggests reducing the amount.
But, it’s not always as simple as reducing the amount of well-known high-carbohydrate foods such as pasta and bread.
In fact, some other everyday items may have a higher than expected carb-content.
This is explained in the new book and 28-day weight loss plan, The Keto Cure, written by Professor Jürgen Bormann with Nico Stanitzok.
Warning slimmers about the amount of carbohydrates in some foods, it addresses how oysters are an example of a so-called “hidden carbohydrate”.
“Oysters for example – unlike other fish – have a relatively high carb count at five per cent,” it explains.
However, that’s not all, as household favourites for adding flavour to a food could also contain more carbs than you may have first thought.
“So do garlic and onions,” the book says.
However, Martha Taylor, author of the book Living Low Carb with Ketogenic Diet has also addressed this, suggesting something else.
According to her, onions are naturally low in carbs, however because they contain more sugar than other vegetables, they shouldn’t be eaten in unlimited volumes.
So, what does come recommended when it comes to making meals on the Keto diet?
Unlike some types of shellfish, fish such as salmon, have a very low carbohydrate count, Healthline reports.
Other foods include eggs, avocados, and meat and poultry.
Cheese, nuts, and seeds, are also top choices.
Posting before and after pictures, she revealed that the low-carb high-fat diet plan had seen her slim from 18st 8lbs to a trimmer 11st 6lbs.
The Keto Cure by Professor Jürgen Bormann with Nico Stanitzok will be published by Modern Books on April 25 2019, available in hardback for £14.99.
