Frequently Asked Questions
Is counting macros necessary on a keto diet?
Counting macros (carbs, fats, and proteins) can be helpful to ensure you're staying within your desired keto ratios. However, some people find success without strict tracking.
Does the keto diet have any cognitive benefits?
Some studies suggest that the keto diet may have cognitive benefits, including improved focus and mental clarity, due to the brain's utilization of ketones as energy.
What is the 'fat-adapted' state on a keto diet?
Being fat-adapted means your body has fully transitioned to using fat as its primary source of energy. It can take several weeks for this metabolic shift to occur on a keto diet.
Can I enjoy keto desserts regularly?
While keto desserts can be a treat, it's important to consume them in moderation. Overindulging in sweet treats can hinder your progress.
Is the keto diet recommended for athletes?
The keto diet may work for some athletes, especially endurance athletes, as it promotes fat adaptation. However, high-intensity athletes might require more carbs for performance.
