The Ketogenic (Keto) diet is one of the most popular dieting trends currently. The basis for the ketogenic is a transition from the RDA of carbohydrates to fats. Essentially, keto adherents try to consume the majority of their calories from fats.
In the 1980s and 1990s the FDA began labeling foods high in fats as unhealthy and encouraged American consumers to reduce their consumption of fats. The FDA linked the consumption of fat to the consumers getting fat. In turn, they encouraged additional consumption of carbohydrates. Over the last thirty years, scientists have discredited this hypothesis and it is now generally recommended to reduce your intake of carbohydrates and increase your intake of fat and protein.
Out of the updated scientific understanding of consumption, the keto diet was born. There are many different types of keto diets - Standard Ketogenic Diet, Cyclical Ketogenic Diet, Targeted Ketogenic Diet, High Protein Ketogenic Diet. Each diet has a slightly different adherence to how much and when to consume fats, carbohydrates, and proteins.
At Clean Eatz, our approach to the keto diet is to provide you with meals with a high percentage of fat as the calorie composition. We strive to keep each meal over 15g of fat per meal while keeping total carbohydrates under 15g. (Understand, we are a USDA-inspected business and we must publish total carbohydrates on our meals. Net carb counts must be considered by the consumer).
Our keto diet meals are our single most-popular diet.
