We have taken a fairly unique approach to ketogenics in that we have set it out as a 16 week (plus programme), making it a lifestyle choice and empowering you to still enjoy your food and in a controlled manner.
By splitting the programme into phases we are giving you more control than any other ketogenic ‘diet’ in that it is you who decided when and if you move onto the next phase. We have ahd client who are enjoying a phase that much that they doubled the length of time that they spent on that phase (in fact they enjoyed the level of ketosis (energy, sleep and the recipes in that phase)
Great, your journey on a low carbohydrate, high fat programme starts here. Use this programme as a guide to diminish sugar cravings, improve insulin levels and ultimately increase your body’s natural fat burning capabilities to reach your goal weight and health. This programme is designed to focus on feeding the body nutrient-dense snacks and meals so that you are getting vitamins and minerals from whole foods and are not getting sugar cravings or going hungry.
Phase 2 is about keeping the same clean-eating approach to your meals and snacks with an abundance of low starch vegetables, quality proteins and good fats, plus introducing a small quantity of carbohydrate-containing foods to allow more flexibility in your diet . This should still keep your weight loss steady.
The maintenance phase is when you have reached your desired weight goal and want to maintain your weight. If you are feeling great at consuming 50-100g of carbohydrate per day and would like to keep this going instead of increasing to 150g, you may do so. There is no need increase carbohydrate intake (other than to increase variety of food or have an increased exercise level). However, if you are concerned that you are still dropping weight, then increase your energy/calorie intake from fats or protein by another 200-300 calories per day.
