7-Day Ketogenic Meal Plan: Absolves Obesity, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Cancer, and More!

I’m not a big advocate of perpetually bouncing from diet to diet, but I do believe we should take time out in our lives to find the best diet for us personally. This is one of my top choices for you to try.

And at the risk of sounding like a car salesman, the newest diet being praised is the ketogenic diet and it can not only help you lose weight, but it also offers many other health benefits not offered by other diets.

Ketogenic, also known as “keto”, refers to training your body to burn fat instead of sugar/simple carbs. Once trained your body is in a state known as ketosis.

The Ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carb diet plan invented in the 1920’s for epilepsy patients by Dr. Henry Geyelin. Dr. Geyelin. He observed improvements not only in seizures but also blood sugar and body fat. The end result is faster weight loss!

Generally speaking, a good ratio to go by is:

  • 60-75% fat
  • 15-30% protein
  • 5-10% carbs

Be sure to keep daily net carbohydrates at 20g or less. To calculate your net carbohydrates simple subtract your grams of fiber from your carbs.

The keto meal plan below is balanced correctly so you can hit the ground running!

How Does Ketosis Work?

Because this is in the family of low-carb diets, this diet works through a process that empties your glucose from your body. A standard diet has a tremendous amount of sugar and carbs and therefore has trained the body to use those sources (glucose) as fuel.

With this diet, over time we have depleted the glucose in our system and since we aren’t getting it from our diet anymore our body adapts and switches over to get its fuel from fats. The cool thing is we start to burn the stored fat we have in our body. The state of burning fat in this way is called ketosis.
