As we have seen in so many places, the ketogenic diet has been integrated into other systems like Atkins to help enhance the reduction of carbohydrates that you intake daily. Many questions exist about your ability to keep up with the ketogenic diet on your own. I mean, it is definitely a hard cooking method to keep up with, especially with the very limited foods that can be available in your cabinets and refrigerators.
So, many of the brands that make keto-friendly protein shakes and other treats that are part of the no-carb option that comes with the ketogenic diet, your sweet-tooth can still be met when there are no sugars included in those items. It’s exciting to have those options while still not eating carbohydrates.
I have to ask a couple of questions about all of these treats, though. Do we end up sort of attached to that sweet taste that comes along with all of these treats? Do they end up sort of removing the need to cook, to make everything much simpler while still meeting the requirements of the diet? Does the ease that comes with these treats create a sort of addiction that will make them our entire grocery list as they start to work for our weight loss goals?
No matter what, it’s much easier to follow the retail diet programs than to manage them on our own. We all seem to prefer the ability to have things placed right into our hands with instructions rather than the need to do work on anything ourselves. I see this in the same way that students work in the assignments they will work on, as the need to place their own efforts into learning seems to be a little too much. They would prefer to be taught everything in detail and told exactly what they are supposed to do.
So, do you think you would like to do your own research for the benefits of the ketogenic diet? Is there anything that you would like to learn about determining whether or not the ketogenic diet is good for you? Maybe it is helpful to find out if you will be able to see if there is a benefit to keeping a certain balance between regular daily foods and some ketogenic foods on a regular basis as well.
Let me know! I would like some input as to what would be the best to research for information to provide all of you with for your own dietary benefit!
