We all THRIVE on different diets. Our genetics differ based on where we are born besides other factors!
I have students from over 180 countries. As a Master Diet and Nutrition Coach I wanted to design a course that appeals to all!
But with a Ketogenic Diet this proved to be very challenging.
After all, most diets around the world including Indian, Mediterranean, Standard American Diet [SAD], Mexican have a significant percentage of calories from carbohydrates, the very nutrient restricted on a Ketogenic Diet.
A Standard Ketogenic Diet is a diet with close to 70 percent of calories from fats, 20-25 percent protein and less than 5 percent carbohydrates, somewhere between 20-50g/day.
Just think if you eat a large banana there is a high probability that you may go out of ketosis (a metabolic state where our bodies start to use ketones as fuel)!
To an Asian Indian this is a nightmare. For generations they have thrived on a 70-80 percent diet of carbohydrates!
Asking them to skip— rice, roti, pulses, beans, milk (lactose is a form of sugar, so this needs to be limited), potatoes, & most importantly fruits is asking for trouble.
And trying suggesting an Italian or a Greek to skip their pastas! Good luck with that:)
It does help to be a non-vegetarian especially if want to pursue a Ketogenic Diet, but unfortunately 99 percentage of meat (includes eggs and dairy products) comes from CAFO’s (confined animal feeding operations) and are loaded with antibiotics, hormones and are grain-fed. This can cause lot of health problems.
And I think this is one of the main reasons (besides spiritual reasons) why in the past many years, lot of Americans are turning vegetarians and/or vegan!
What’s my point? Why then I created this course in the first place?
Let me start by saying that if you are a non-vegetarian, being on a Ketogenic Diet is relatively easy.
Although it does not give you the ticket to eat processed foods just because they uphold the Ketogenic Diet Macros (Fat 70%, Proteins 25%, Carbs 5%). This some experts term as the ‘bacon phenomena’
Even on Keto, Food Choices Matter, and if you adhere to the guidelines and tips I have provided in this course, amazing health benefits will accrue to you overtime. I have discussed Keto & its Fabulous Benefits in Module 2.
In my more than a decade long experience of creating diets for people all around the world, I strongly believe in this statement:
Only a very minor percentage of people can restrict their carbs to less than 5 percentage or 30g/day.
Look around you, there are carbs in literally everything. Only in the past 100 years, sugar consumption has increased to 180lbs (up from 90lbs per person per year).
Staple foods like rice, wheat have become super refined and processed. Most beverages are sugar sweetened and are the leading cause of the obesity epidemic.
And this is THE MAIN REASON why I created this course—To help people be mindful of the carbs they are consuming, reduce it’s consumption and only select the one’s that are healthy for you (Yes, carbs can be healthy too!)
A Large Majority of you will be able to:
-Lose fat in a rapid and enjoyable manner
-Drastically improve your health
-Build lean muscles
-Triple your energy levels
-Optimize your sleep
provided you reduce your calories from Refined and Processed Carbohydrates.
This is where Module 5, 6 & 7 will come to your rescue:)
Module 5 is where I will discuss the types of Ketogenic Diet. There are mainly 4 variations based on your goals & preferences.
Module 6 is taking a step by step approach to creating a customized Ketogenic Diet for yourself and your clients.
I am super-exited about Module 7. This is my in-house variation of the Ketogenic Diet called the FAB-D Diet.
As Buddha say “ Take the middle road ”
And this diet does just that.
I strongly believe that cutting a macronutrient completely is not enjoyable and sustainable for most people.
And therefore FAB-D Diet ‘takes the middle road’ by keeping the calories from carbohydrates in a low-to-moderate range! It can keep you in Ketosis for few days a week!
In Module 8 you will find a comprehensive 21-Day Keto Reboot Challenge.
This will help anyone to get on their selected variation of the Ketogenic Diet. Its a step-by-step program which covers everything from what needs to be done everyday including recipes, meal and diet plans, shopping list, tips, guidelines to maximize fat loss and/or muscle building.
This course has everything what you need to become a Master Keto Coach if that is what your goal is. You will be required to give an exam and once you score more than 50% you will be able to secure a CPD Certificate.
