HEALTHY FOODS TO BOOST YOUR ENERGY ON A KETOGENIC DIET

Do you experience spurts of energy that peak after a meal and dip drastically when you go too long without eating?

If YES, your diet may just need an adjustment.

A normal body is taught to run on carbs.

It becomes the primary fuel source and you feel tired and sluggish until you get your next refuelling of carbs (aka sugar).

This way of eating creates a vicious cycle that can lead to overeating, low energy and fat storage.

You’ll face zero of these issues on a ketogenic diet.

Keto Energy is Sustained Energy You Need Right Now

Here are some low carb foods that boost your energy levels

OILY FISH

Oily fish, such as salmon, trout, sardines and mackerel rich in protein, fatty acids and B vitamins.

Studies have suggested that omega-3 fatty acids may help reduce inflammation in the body. This is significant because inflammation can cause fatigue.

EGGS

Eggs are high in protein and are a sustained energy source that will get you through to the next meal.

The B vitamins in eggs help enzymes break down food for energy and the essential amino acid leucine helps cells to absorb sugar in the blood.

SEEDS

Seeds are a good source of fibre, which means the nutrients from your food will be digested more slowly. This leads to a steady release of energy, helping you to keep up your energy levels between meals, which is important if you’re on a low-carb ketogenic diet.

NUTS

When you first start a ketogenic diet, the lack of carbs may leave your energy levels lagging, especially between meals. It’s therefore important to keep some healthy, high-energy, low-carb ketogenic snacks on hand.

Nuts such as almonds, walnuts, brazil nuts, macadamia nuts and cashews are packed with nutrients and are great as a snack if you’re hungry between meals and need an energy boost.

NUT BUTTERS

This is another way of eating nuts, and it offers the same health and energy benefits.

AVOCADO

Avocados are a good source of healthy fatty acids and fibre

80% of an avocado’s carb content consists of fibre, which helps to regulate energy levels, as nutrients is absorbed more slowly.

MCT OIL

MCT stands for medium chain triglycerides, a type of fat that occurs naturally in coconut oil.This produces ketones, which your muscles and other tissues use for fuel instead of sugar for an instant and steady release of energy.
