A Look at What to Eat on the Keto Diet and the Keto Diet Food Pyramid
Over the past several years, the keto diet has become increasingly popular due to its ability to help dieters lose weight while obtaining a range of additional health benefits. And this is no fad diet with no science to back it up. Many studies including a recent one from Harvard proves that keto benefits are fact, not fiction.
This might leave you wondering what to eat on the keto diet? Our highly skilled team possesses an expert understanding of what can and can’t be included in a keto meal. The keto diet food pyramid looks something like this:
Healthy fats make up around 70% of the pyramid. These can be found in foods like salmon, avocados, bacon, nuts and seeds, coconut, olive and seed oils, and more.
Making up 25% of a keto diet, this is where you find meat, cheese, eggs, and so forth.
Only 5% of your keto diet should include carbs, and ideally less. That means eating very small portions of vegetables and fruits.
So how many carbs can you have in your keto diet? While some keto dieters go as high as 100 grams a day, on a strict keto diet you should get less than 20 grams over the course of the day and often much less.
These restrictions can make it challenging to not only stick to your diet, but to enjoy healthy, tasty, diverse meals. A great solution is Whole Body Fuel, the premier keto meal diet delivery service serving St. Pete with convenient, nutritious, delicious meals.
How Our Keto Meal Delivery Makes Your Diet Healthy, Delicious and Convenient
Founded by chefs who are passionate about crafting healthy meals using fresh, seasonal, regional ingredients, Whole Body Fuel launched in 2014. It has since become the leading fitness prepped meal delivery service in St. Pete, providing gourmet meal packages for diets spanning keto, paleo, vegetarian, and more.
One of the most frustrating aspects of any diet can involve the feeling that you’re so limited in terms of what you can eat that you can’t enjoy the delicious meals you love. This can be especially difficult for keto dieters. At Whole Body Fuel, we have disproven this myth by consistently delivering tasty pre-prepped dishes from menus that are updated weekly to countless fitness enthusiasts throughout the region.
Meet the Whole Body Fuel Chef – Company Founder, Brian Adamo
Chef Brian Adamo has spent a lifetime engaging with food, starting when he was a child helping his mother tend to their small farm in New York’s Hudson River Valley region. There, he learned the value of fresh, local ingredients, and learned time-honored methods of cooking, preserving, and pickling foods.
Later, Chef Adamo went on to attend and graduate from the prestigious Culinary Institute of America, where he was mentored by a Certified Master and honed his expertise pertaining to food. Since then, he has worked in and owned several restaurants and completed his Level 1 Court of Master Sommelier Exam.
When he founded Whole Body Fuel, his previous knowledge and passion for food became integral to the company’s mission, which is to provide customers with gastronomic delights that are as delicious as they are healthy and convenient. Chef Adamo and the Whole Body Fuel team are committed to helping you enjoy foods tailored to your diet while loving every bite.
