3 points to keep in mind once deciding between Keto and Low Carb diet

Keto is a type of diet low in carbohydrates and high in fats. It’s indicated for fat loss, diabetes type 2, acne control, PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome), and also to treat epilepsy.

It’s known to be a very restrictive diet, as 1g of fat = 9 Cals. 

Below you can find 3 points to keep in mind to decide if the Keto diet is a good option for you:
  1. Keto is a strategy and not a lifestyle. Keeping in mind that Keto is a very restrictive diet, the ideal is to alternate it with a diet rich and complete with all types of macronutrients.
  2. It’s a type of diet that is rich in fat and can support the body's inflammation. The reason why it should not be followed for so long. 
  3. It’s not indicated for athletes. In Keto diet, the metabolic pathway for the production of energy is the fat and carbs are highly recommended in sports.

Extra: Keto is beneficial for those who do not exercise or prefer doing low-intensity sports. 

On the other hand, a low-carb diet is not rich in fat and carbs are usually higher than a keto diet. The ideal is to intake 130g or lower carbs per day.

Here are 3 points to be considered if you are thinking of following a low-carb diet:

  1. The introduction of a low-carb diet needs to be slow, in this way, the body will be able to adjust to the metabolic changes and will not feel the collateral effects;
  2. The real low-carb diet needs to exclude alcohol consumption. 
  3. You will have to eat more fresh foods. Industrialized food has a lot of carbs.
