People on a keto eating plan are able to feast on large quantities of protein (animal, fish, seafood or plant-based) and even higher quantities of fat high (dairy, nuts, oils). However, while the diet allows you to consume most things that other traditional regimes would advise to abstain from like bacon, butter, and heavy cream, most people fail to stay committed whilst going keto. Because it’s really tough to follow. Which is why a service like Eatology, which offers meal plans designed to keto macros (protein/fat/carb ratios) and then delivers them to your door, is the perfect solution.
Keto is HARD – Which is WHY You Need Eatology
The ketogenic or “keto” diet has taken the world by storm. A popular choice among celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Halle Berry, Kardashians and basketball superstar LeBron James, the controversial high-calorie, low carb meal plan touts plenty of health benefits like increase in energy, decrease in inflammation, better mental focus and can alleviate many types of medical conditions.
Going on keto is not just about cutting out carbs like breads and pasta; carbohydrates are in everything, and in order to get your body into a state of ketosis, you will need to curb all sugar, most fruits, even some veggies. It’s all about precise macro balance and calculations! One of the biggest mistakes keto followers make is not getting the ratios rights. Switching the body to ketosis requires meticulous calculations and measuring macros for each food and ingredient or you risk falling out of ketosis or being able to maintain it. Most of us don’t have the equipment and the know-how to measure everything perfectly…Those who don’t take the time to plan accordingly will mostly fail.
Another common misconception is that you’ll be noshing on steaks, burgers, and bacon everything as much as you’d like. While those are all keto-approved foods, it’s also important to get your vitamins, minerals and fibre and not rely on high-fat junk food.
Lastly, is meal planning your thing? Eating to achieve ketosis is mostly fat, low to moderate protein, and almost no carbs but most of us are not used to preparing meals with these ratios. It’s really hard to come up with a variety of meals on your own, especially when most commonly consumed foods contain carbs. Plus, navigating restaurant menus is going to be difficult when you’re on such a restrictive diet…
Eatology’s Got ALL Your Ketogenic Needs Covered
Enter Eatology. An elevated healthy meal delivery experience with extensive meal plan options like vegetarian, vegan, popular gluten-free subscription and more, the premium meal delivery company has a great alternative for those apprehensive of committing fully to Keto. Less restrictive to the traditional classic ketogenic diet – which could be extreme to the general public – Eatology offers a Ketogenic Light meal plan that follows the Modified Atkins Diet (MAD). While both eating plans involve reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat, MAD is can be easier to follow because it allows for controlled moderate carb intake, while Keto is drastically different from your average person’s everyday diet, so it’s tough to keep up.
“I have been on the ketogenic diet for around six months now and I am very happy with the results,” says Eatology client Stephen K. “I lost 10kg and feel better in both body and mind. I get three meals and two snacks delivered from Eatology Monday to Friday and it’s helped me a lot to start living the keto way!”
Available in one, two, or three week programs, a sample menu on Eatology’s Ketogenic Light 1500 calories plan could be as follows: organic egg with turkey breast for breakfast, a bowl of greek tzatziki & cucumber and tuna mimosa with organic eggs for both snacks, organic chicken kebab with creamy spinach for lunch, and a piece of barramundi (Asian sea bass) with vegetable spaghetti for dinner. How delicious does that sound! Plus bonus: no washing up.
