Eatwell Plate VS Low Carb / Keto

Nutritional Guidelines
You may have seen this type of chart over the years either at school at even during 'Health Weeks' at the doctors. This is how we have been told to eat over the last 30 years...the same 30 years that have seen obesity and type 2 diabetes rates rise dramatically. 

We know that high carb foods raise our insulin levels. Insulin is the hormone responsible for removing the sugar from the blood and storing it away as fat. So, when 70-80% of our consumption is based on a mix of high and low carb foods, it's no wonder how we've got to where we are.

Our mindset has been altered not just from the introduction of these guidelines but from food manufacturers who have created a whole new industry...low fat products!

Low Carb / Keto

Keto nutrition is a step not only in the right direction but back to before politicians and food manufacturers created the nutritional guidelines. Up until the 1960s there were no such things as guidelines for what we should and shouldn't eat and the introduction of such guidelines was not based on any scientific evidence. 

Before the time of the guidelines being introduced we ate butter, bacon and cheese; before the climbing rates of metabolic syndrome we would enjoy natural yogurt made the way it is supposed to be made.

Nutrition on the keto way of eating is using real foods, giving the body essential mineral and vitamins and all the time feeling like you are not missing out of going hungry. 'Keto nutrition' is not bars, shakes, pills, or any other products that have been labelled 'low carb' or 'keto' but contain a multitude of inflammatory & artificial ingredients.
