The Ketogenic Diet Low Carb Dinner Recipes

The Ketogenic diet aka “Keto Diet” is not nearly new but has gained traction recently as a phenomenal diet for weight loss as well as for rectifying handfuls of diseases and disorders. It originally was much more restrictive and was formulated to combat seizure disorders.

More recently we have realized that many people can benefit from the Ketogenic diet; also known as the low carb high fat diet (LCHF).

In our society we have grown to view fat as the enemy. Consuming fat will make you fat right? (So you know, no…that is entirely untrue.) Consuming processed food, high in unhealthy and unnatural fats will make you fat.

Consuming healthy fats such as raw olive oil uncooked, unrefined coconut oil, and full fat dairy products (all in moderation of course) will not negatively effect your waistline. As long as you learn how to properly consume said products. In fact they are much more satisfying and filling than their low-fat and fat-free counterparts that are loaded with added sugars and other additives in order to lower their calorie and fat content.

Healthy fats are necessary to the proper functioning of your body. For your brain, joints and more.

What is a Ketogenic Diet?

In a Keto diet you consume almost no carbohydrates. Between 20-50 carbs a day. This low consumption of carbohydrates will leave your body searching for a new fuel source. Carbohydrates is what our body uses for fuel and energy every day.

When carbs are virtually omitted from your diet your liver will begin producing ketones to convert fat into fuel. Your energy will instead come directly from the healthy fats you consume.

Is the Keto diet restrictive?

Yes, it is. Anyone stating otherwise is straight up lying. You will have to stop consuming breads, rice, basically all grains, legumes, fruits, juice, beer, and even many vegetables.

What makes the Keto diet doable is that while there are many foods you will not be partaking in, those that you are eating are loaded with satisfying fats, cheese, and the like.

You can literally eat eggs, bacon, steak, and cheese every day.

If you keep things like Keto approved fat bombs on hand at all times it’s a heck of a lot easier to stick to this diet.

Chocolate blueberry cheesecake fat bombs and raspberry coconut cheesecake fat bombs like these are ok to eat every day!

How can you lose weight eating so much fat?

When following a Keto diet 70% of your calories will come from fat! Not Big Mac and fries type of fat either. Delicious cheeses, coconut oil, and meats. When your body goes into Ketosis after beginning to convert fat into fuel it will use up all that healthy fat you consume as well as the excess fat in your body.

The Keto diet has become extremely popular for weight loss in 2018. However there are many health reasons that people begin a Ketogenic diet.

All that being said, I’ve found 8 delicious and satisfying Keto dinner recipes that you will be dying to try!

And all these dinner recipes are actually all Keto approved.

The Keto diet is so popular right now I cannot tell you the number of websites, pins, etc. that claim to contain Ketogenic recipes that are NOT! Actually I can. Roughly 66% of recipes claiming to be Keto are not! It’s so frustrating for someone genuinely trying to learn this diet.

I guarantee all these recipes to actually follow the Keto diet. (Personally I have to follow an extremely strict Keto diet, 7 grams of carbs per large meal. Or I’m knocked right out of Ketosis and get to enjoy another wonderful day of Keto flu aka carb withdrawal.) This and all Keto posts I plan on crafting in the future will be strictly Ketogenic.
