I hope you are all doing well. And liking this effort of mine, regarding this channel. I noticed that the most liked video of mine was the one where I shared how I lost 70 pounds. So I thought I tried following alot of diet plans Initially, I did lose weight But the last 10-15 pounds are usually problematic So, I tried Keto Diet for 3 months. I would like to share Keto Diet with you. A lot of people get confused regarding what Keto Diet actually is. Okay, so first of all it is important to understand that what quantity of food would be suitable. So if you have to consume, say 1200 calories or 1500, depending on your gender, and what your weight size is. By the way you do find online calculators, which calculate the amount of calories you need to consume, in your Keto Diet according to your weight, body type, and other things like gender. Now, 70% of the time in this diet, you have to consume oils or fats, 20% proteins, and 10% carbohydrates. Now how many grams of what, Micros and macros are all very confusing, but if you properly search for it online, you’ll find information, and very useful videos. I will share with you that which oils, living in Pakistan, we can make use of. First of all, Desi ghee, is readily available in Pakistan so you can use Desi ghee Butter, but the desi one, not the processed one. Processed can also be used, but it is better to use desi. Then, coconut oil, which is easily available in the market And, extra virgin olive oil. Now these were the oils that are easily available. If you can get yourself an MCT oil from abroad, or anywhere else, that would be great. Now, I’ll give you a basic logic of what you have to do Whenever we eat something containing alot of oil we feel very heavy And we feel full after eating a small amount of it. The best thing about Keto Diet is that your stomach feels full Usually, in other diets you feel like your stomach is a well and you never feel that you are full and you keep stuffing yourself with food. But in a Keto Diet, your stomach feels full, you are satisfied and your energy level also stays high. And after Keto Diet the maintenance diet also called the Paleo Diet can also be done easily. I will talk about Paleo Diet in another video, in this one I will inform you about Keto. So Keto diet is a diet, which can be followed easily, but before starting with this diet, undergo a few tests to ensure you have normal cholesterol and you don’t have health problems like fatty liver. Because if you have medical issues like diabetes or anything like that, you first need to consult your doctor and inform them that you are planning to start a Keto Diet. When we start a Keto Diet there is a thing called Keto flu you get headaches and feel sick but this fatigue is only for 2 to 3 days. After that you feel fine. So, after going through Keto flu and your body goes into ketosis Instead of using sugars and other things it starts using fats as fuel for energy. The benefit of this is that it uses the extra fat in your body. And your weight starts to drop. I have even seen cases where people have lost 5-6 pounds in a week. But the healthy way is to lose 2-3 pounds if you have alot of weight. And this diet is not difficult to follow. Like I said you don’t feel very hungry. Now, what to do? You can have omelette for breakfast But usually what people do is, they remove egg yolks. But that is totally unnecessary, because the yolk is good for you the fat that is present in the yolks is good for you. You can even add cheese in your omelette. And that too full fat, not low fat. We have a mentality of buying low fat things. Don’t buy low fat. Fat is good. In this diet, fat is your friend. Fat is not bad. Please, glue this to your brains. Now what you can do is, Sprinkle some extra virgin olive over it and cook it in coconut oil. And there you have your omelette. Now for lunch. What I do is that, I take some vegetables, and a small portion of protein, with a lot of butter. Its already making my mouth water. And you can add spices. In short, the portion you are allowed to have, make it as tasteful as you want. By the way, I eat Nihari too. What makes the difference are the grains we use. Such as coconut flour and other grains that you are allowed to take. You can even search this online. You can make a small crispy, chapati out those grains for yourself. Or make a small piece of bread with almond flour. And make Nihari for yourself, but don’t add flour or wheat flour to thicken Nihari at the end like most people do. Nihari is perfectly healthy for you this way. It has fat and gravy. Now, what you need to eat for dinner. Anything that is cooked at home for dinner. You can’t take lentils or vegetables in big amounts. But you can take a handful of cucumbers and season them with some olive oil, lemon juice, some salt and pepper and make a salad out of it. You can take a small piece of beef with it, chop it and make a beef chili dry out of it. With green chilies and oil, there is no restriction on oil. But you have to avoid, chapati, rice, sugar, things made out of flour and grains. You can even eat a piece or two of dark chocolate, which is 70% dark and ideally sugar free. You can eat chocolates and handfuls of nuts like pistachios and even almonds. So there are a lot of things that you are not allowed to eat normally but you can eat them in Keto Diet if you have to do it for 2 to 3 months. And, If your doctor has permitted you to. Now the 3 things to remember for this diet. First, is lots and lots of water. Drink as much as you can. The more water you will drink, the more your skin will glow and stay fresh. Secondly, do use multi vitamins. Because you are taking in so much of fat and other things, so obviously you will get some sort of a vitamin deficiency. So do take a good quality multi vitamin. Now the third thing, if your weight gets stuck at one point and you can’t figure out why is that. So the biggest reason for that is, that maybe you are taking in more proteins like meat, chicken or fish etc. This can be one problem. Other then that, maybe your body has become used to. So a very good solution for that is intermittent fasting. Now what is intermittent fasting? I will make a detailed video on it later for you. But, if you go online and search how to intermittent fast, you will find information for that. I guess, my point is very simple. Fat diets come and go, there was a time when Atkins and South beach diets were very in. Then came along hcg diet as well. All sorts of diets come and go. And they do work for some time. Ultimately what works is, a healthy lifestyle. Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water. In summers make it 12. Drink more and more water. Avoid fizzy drinks. Try to avoid junk food, artificial food and processed food as much as you can. And maintain a balanced diet. And if you have reached your ideal weight then maintain yourself. If you feel like you are gaining 2-3 pounds, pull your strings right away. People say you used to be so chubby how do you maintain yourself? This is how I maintain myself. The moment i feel like I am putting on weight, I stop myself instantly. So with some control, some balance and a positive mindset, I guarantee you that you will lead a happy and healthy life. And of course, if you try Keto diet do give me your feedback. And share your comments as well as your experience. Because these videos are kind of my personal blog where I share my feelings and experiences. But with your feedback I will be able to give better guidance in my next video. So do comment. And try the Keto Diet.
