Whether you’re looking for ways to cut down on your trips to the supermarket, or you’ve just decided to give the latest diet trend a whirl, going keto has never been easier.
From snacks and desserts to groceries and meats to ready-to-heat meals, keto meal delivery services are just a few clicks away. Juli Keene, a Los Angeles-based nutritionist, suggests thinking of keto more as a tool, rather than a diet, that focuses on increasing your metabolism by having you stick to lower-carb meals with plenty of vegetables and protein, while cutting out unhealthy fats and increasing healthy fats, such as avocado.
“By cutting carbs and sugar and increasing healthy fats and protein, you get rid of the constant hunger and food cravings that come with eating the usual high-carbohydrate American diet,” she says. “Controlling hunger-related hormones like ghrelin, leptin and insulin has much to do with the success and popularity of the keto diet.”
