Your body is like a high performing sports car—the higher-quality the fuel, the better it performs! In ketosis, your body switches your fuel supply from burning carbs, which are converted into glucose, to burning fat, which is converted into ketones!
Carbs metabolize into glucose.
Cut carb intake or fast to cut off glucose metabolism.
Fast-burning fuel, but when you have an oversupply of blood glucose, the excess is stored as fat.
In absence of glucose, your body shifts into ketosis, metabolizing stored fat.
Spike in blood glucose raises insulin levels, signaling the fat storage.
The longer without carbs, your body converts fats from your diet and body into ketones for fuel.
With blood glucose crash, hunger kicks in and cravings start. You refuel and the cycle starts again.
Fat is more energy-dense, and burns slower, providing filling, sustained energy throughout the day.
PLUSThe brain thrives on ketones for sharpened mental focus and enhanced mood. Say goodbye to the mid-day crashes and brain fog!
It’s no contest! Fat is the fuel of choice, so maximize your fat-burning potential by making healthy fats 70% of your macronutrient intake every day! That's the percentage breakdown based on your calorie intake from the three macronutrient groups; not the area of your plate.
Macronutrients are the foods and nutrients that you need in large amounts, as they provide the energy (the caloric fuel) your body depends on to function every day.
Carbohydrates, proteins, and fats are your three food macronutrients. By getting 70% of your macronutrient calories from healthy fats and only 10% from carbohydrates, you’re upgrading
your body’s fuel supply, from carb-fueled glucose to fat-fueled ketones! Ketones are the macronutrient your body makes! They are formed from your body’s metabolism of another macronutrient, fat. The powerful premium fuel source that ketones provide to energize your body and brain makes them a potent macronutrient in their own right.
It’s not about counting calories. Living keto starts with building complete, healthy meals with the right proportions of these core macronutrients. These percentages and servings are "averages." Everyone's macronutrient intake is unique. This is YOUR keto journey!
