Low Carb Baking Vs Keto Cooking – Which Is Better?
As a former dieter and now a vegetarian/vegetarian I’m often asked the same sorts of questions about Low Carb Baking vs. Keto: What’s the difference between Low Carb Baking and Keto? And how do they compare to your traditional diets? In this article, I’ll outline the main differences between Low Carb Baking vs. Keto, what they have in common, and why you should try them both if you’re dieting.
Keto is short for Ketosis
the diet of a person using “ketones” as their primary source of fuel. This is a diet that can cause severe harm if not done correctly – it can even kill. It was created by a person (not me) who found that the vast majority of people following low-carbohydrate diets were getting sick, dying, or just getting depressed because of the way their diets were designed. They combined low-carb baking, fruit, and vegetables into one low-carb, high-protein dessert. It seemed like an economic process at the time.
Now, I know people will disagree about the value of a low-carb diet
that diets with fewer carbs cause diabetes, heart problems, etc. And some people won’t even consider changing to a keto diet, simply because they’ve had bad experiences with low carb diets in the past. There are legitimate concerns about long-term health when following low-carb diets – just ask anybody who’s had cancer or heart problems while on a low-carb diet. However, there are other valid arguments in favor of the diets. If you’re looking for a nutritious, low carb diet, that doesn’t require deprivation, that doesn’t require depriving yourself of other foods, that allows you to eat your favorite vegetables, then low carb, high protein diet may be a good fit for you.
Most studies show that you can tolerate pretty
much any amount of carbs intake, provided you don’t exceed the level of ketones in your body. That’s the problem with low-carb diets: they force people to consume far fewer carbs than is healthy for them to maintain a stable blood sugar level. Some people can lose weight very quickly on keto diets, because of the incredible boost in energy, but as soon as the ketones start to accumulate in their bodies, these people run into trouble. When your body starts to use fat as a source of energy, you can only hold on to it so long before your body goes into starvation mode and starts burning fat. The more fat you get rid of, the more weight you’ll lose.
There are alternatives to low-carb diets
however. Many people find that moderate low-carb diets, which allow people to eat carbs up to a certain point, provide the energy they need, but also allow them to enjoy many of the same foods they enjoy on a keto diet without having to go through the trouble involved with low-carb diets. Maintaining a lump of steady blood sugar is important if you want to stay healthy on both low-carb and ketogenic diets, but keeping your carbs below the GI (which means that it will not change into glucose, causing a spike in your blood sugar) mark allows you to get the nutrients you need without having to worry about a dip in your sugar levels. You can still enjoy all the benefits of a low-carb diet but at a healthier pace.
Another option, if you’re interested in sticking to a diet
for the long term, is to make some changes to your current diet. Rather than restricting carbs like most low-carb diets do, or eliminating carbs from your diet entirely, you can simply add some carbs to the things you love doing. For instance, if you love bread, you could make some low-carb bread and eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Or, instead of drinking milk and eating cheese every day, you could drink coconut milk instead. Both options will help you to reduce your carbs, which are good for your waistline, and will keep your body’s energy levels stable so that you don’t experience the hunger swings associated with many low-carb diets.
