So many people are turning to the Keto Diet because they love being able to release weight, reduce inflammation in the body, and diminish those pesky cravings for sugar. It is important not to sacrifice your micros when trying to stay within your macros while on a Keto Diet. Getting healthy amino acids helps your body to build lean muscle while burning fat. It is also helpful to the skin that needs to retain its elasticity while your body is shrinking. I love using the IsaPro protein powder from Isagenix because I know it is the best, cleanest, and highest quality whey protein available. Here is a recipe I like to use on my keto diet.
8 ounces of coconut milk (1g net carb)
2 T heavy whipping cream (I buy the non-homogenized kind)
1 scoop Fiber Pro (1g net carb)
1 T MTC oil (C8 Caprylic Acid is the best. If you aren’t already consuming MTC oil, I recommend starting out with a teaspoon, then slowly working your way up to a Tablespoon. Your body needs time to learn how to properly digest fat after being high carb.)
1 Scoop IsaPro protein powder (2g net carb)
You can add your own keto flavorings or sweeteners if you desire. This is a good base recipe that is only around 4g net carbs, 28g fat, and 18g protein. This gives the proper fats:protein:carbs ratio of a keto diet.
