Better Than Keto – Keto With Carbs

Better Than Keto – Keto With Carbs

I assume you have heard of Keto.  Al Roker loves it and people swear it is the “THING” that has finally been discovered to lose weight for good.

Except it’s not.

If you haven’t heard of Keto, maybe you have heard of Atkins from years ago.  It’s basically the same thing, just with a new name with the hope that people would forget it has already been tried. And failed.

Essentially, a keto diet requires you to eat protein and fat with very little to no carbs, except some vegetables.

The thing is, Keto works.  And it isn’t actually new. It’s been a part of medicine for a while, as a way to treat epilepsy when medications fail.  Effectively, it re-programs your body to not require carbs for energy but to use fat instead. If energy from carbs is limited or non-existent, our bodies go into a “ketogenic” state and will then tap into our fat as an alternative fuel source (Hyman 2018).

While there are absolutely medical benefits to a ketogenic diet of eating, it is not necessary for the majority of people out there and because it is utterly so unsustainable (I mean, can you imagine never having BREAD or CAKE again?!?!) it can cause more issues when, inevitably, we will try to eat carbs again.

But here’s the thing.  We NEED carbs…keto diets are reprogramming bodies that don’t need to be reprogrammed.  Carbs are considered a macronutrient and our body’s primary choice for energy.

Now, do we eat too many carbs? Yes.

Can carbs cause us to put on pounds? Yes.

Can carbs put us at risk for long-term diseases like diabetes?  Yes.

But we need carbs. And the #1 challenge my clients and followers tell me they have when it comes to nutrition is that they LOVE carbs and don’t want to give them up.

The good news is they don’t have to!

See here is what Keto diets do right for us…they insist we have protein and fat.  So, here’s what I like to call “Keto with Carbs”

The key is the right amount of the right carbs….and eating it WITH complete protein and good fat. It’s called PFC Every 3 and was first introduced by Mark MacDonald.

When you eat 5-6 meals a day with the “PFC” combination it balances your hormones which balances your blood sugar and boosts your metabolism which allows you to shed weight and manage symptoms. It’s the key to a sustainable approach that also doesn’t make you feel like you are depriving yourself.

Additionally, when you combine eating “PFC Every 3” with clean eating, it’s an incredible formula for not only weight loss but long-term health too because by keeping your blood sugar stabilized like this all day, you balance your hormones and reducing your risk dramatically for diabetes, depression, heart disease, dementia and more.
