Frequently Asked Questions
What is the role of ketones in a keto diet?
Ketones are produced when the body breaks down fats for energy in the absence of sufficient carbs. They serve as an alternative fuel source, especially for the brain.
How do I track my progress on a keto diet?
Tracking progress can be done through regular weigh-ins, measurements, and before-and-after photos. Non-scale victories like increased energy and improved mood are also important indicators.
What's the difference between total carbs and net carbs?
Total carbs include all types of carbohydrates, while net carbs subtract fiber and certain sugar alcohols. Net carbs are often used in keto diets to gauge carb intake.
How does the keto diet impact insulin levels?
The keto diet can lower insulin levels as it restricts carb intake. This can be beneficial for individuals with insulin resistance or diabetes.
How do I prevent bad breath on a keto diet?
Some people experience temporary bad breath on keto due to increased acetone production. Drinking more water, chewing sugar-free gum, or using mouthwash can help.
