Are you eating enough fat to lose weight?
Keto is a high fat diet, so if you’re not eating enough fat, you could stall your results! And that’s what we’re going to chat about on today’s Chat the Fat.
I listen to a lot of health podcasts, and still hear over and over, if you have fat to burn on your thighs, you don’t want to add extra fat to your diet. And while this may be true for some, I also think it’s so confusing for a lot of people who start keto – which they learn is a high fat diet … and then they’re immediately told to lower their fat.
Many follow this logic where they’re told that they can just lower carbs to below 20 and then poof! they’re in ketosis because they heard someone say they can just burn the fat on their thighs.
Some people’s bodies work that way – and perhaps that’s why this message keeps going around. Not everyone’s body works that way – so today we’ll chat about the reasons you want to get more fat into your keto diet and how to do it.
Today we talk about 5 ways to get more fat into your keto diet:
#1 – coconut oil
#2 – butter
#3 – heavy cream
#4 – fattier cuts of meat
#5 – avocado oil and olive oil
