• Lose weight with keto: COMPLETE 1-week best keto diet meal plan plus what you can eat on ketogenic diet

A lot people don’t realise just how difficult it is to stick to a proper ketogenic diet when you’re trying to get fit. For many, a keto diet means ramping up your fat intake and bringing down the carb levels slightly. in reality, the macronutrient ratio on a standard ketogenic diet should be approximately 75% fat, 20% protein and only 5% carbs.

‘Whatever’ – you might exclaim – ‘I’ll just eat less crisps’. consider this: 5% carbs on a 2400-calorie average daily intake is 120 calories. That’s the same amount of calories that’s in a medium-sized banana. To keep carbs that low means you have to be very specific on what you eat.

The situation is even more dire if you are working out. A bodybuilder’s diet consists of mainly protein and carbs with some healthy fats added. Cutting all the carbs out and replacing the calories with good fats is challenging, to say the least.

However, each 50-gram serving of Bulk Powders Complete Keto Shake contains 21.9 grams of protein and 10.6 grams of fat. And not just any fat, 9 out of that 10.6 grams are the sought-after medium chain triglycerides, or MCTs for short. Interestingly there’s no volume of carbs specifically listed, although it is staded there’s ‘less than 1g sugar per serving’, and the shake is also described as being ‘High in fibre’.

Why should you try the Bulk Powders Complete Keto Shake?

The Complete Keto Shake from Bulk Powders is the UK’s first high-fat, low-carb ketogenic protein shake. Apart from being high in protein and fat, this protein shake is low in sugar too, containing less than a gram per serving.

Also, the aforementioned MCTs can increase exercise performance, decrease body fat and increase lean muscle mass, should you follow a proper keto diet.

On top of all this, the Complete Keto Shake is also high in fibre and uses Bulk Powders’ Pure Whey Protein, a shaker staple we are all familiar with.

The flavours are as varied as you’d expect from Bulk Powders: choose from Vanilla ice cream or Coconut cream. All keto fans will appreciate the sweet and healthy treat in their otherwise avocado-nuts-seed heavy diet.

6 best keto diet apps – Medical News Today

Following a keto diet can be challenging, but several apps are available to help people track their macronutrients. Some of these apps also provide suitable recipes and nutritional information for a range of foods.

The features of keto apps vary, and a person’s preference will likely depend on their level of experience with the diet and their specific goals.

In this article, we examine some of the best keto diet apps. We also discuss what a keto diet is and what the research around it says.

a man cooking and looking at an app on his phone that will hopefully let him cook the best keto mealShare on PinterestA mobile application may provide a person with recipes and food ideas for a keto diet.

A ketogenic, or keto diet, is a low carbohydrate diet that some people use for weight loss or to reduce body fat percentage. The diet is high in fats, moderate in proteins, and very low in carbohydrates. People track these macronutrients (macros) with the aim of consuming them in the following ratio:

  • 55–60% fat
  • 30–35% protein
  • 5–10% carbohydrate

For a 2,000 calorie per day intake, this would mean consuming 20–50 grams (g) of carbohydrates.

The science behind the approach is to put the body into a state of ketosis.

Glucose is the body’s primary source of energy, and it will choose this over any other source when it is available. People obtain glucose from carbohydrates in the diet.

When someone eats less than 50 g of carbohydrate per day, the body changes how it sources energy, producing ketone bodies to use as fuel instead. This metabolic state is called ketosis.

In ketosis, the body produces less insulin, leading it to store less glucose as fat. In this way, the keto diet can help someone looking to lose weight and body fat.

Experts generally consider it to be safe because the amount of ketone bodies that the body produces does not alter the blood’s pH levels. This fact distinguishes ketosis from ketoacidosis — a life threatening condition in which much larger numbers of ketone bodies alter the blood’s pH to make it acidic.

Read on to find out about some of the best apps for someone following a keto diet.

Carb manager is available for free. There is also a premium paid-for version that includes many extra features.


  • This app allows people to track their macros and true net carbs (the number of carbs that the body absorbs), subtracting sugar alcohols and fiber. The app alerts someone if they go over their limits on specific macros.

  • As well as macros, they are able to track weight, exercise, calories, and water. The app also supports intermittent fasting.

  • People can make a shopping list directly from the recipes, and they can add meals to a list of favorites. Offline, they can access more than 1,000 recipes.

Researchers are still studying keto diets to determine their possible benefits and safety issues.

Some research indicates that keto diets are effective for weight loss. However, many doctors are concerned by the increase in low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, or “bad” cholesterol, that these diets cause. Those who follow a keto diet very strictly may also eat fewer plant foods that have beneficial effects.

Other studies suggest that ketone bodies may be beneficial for healthy aging and help treat some chronic diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease and cancer. However, many studies to date have involved animals, and human research is necessary to make firm conclusions about these possible benefits.

Various keto diet apps are available to cater to people’s differing needs and experience.

Some focus on tracking macros and providing recipes, whereas others allow people to track their fitness and get advice from professionals and the keto community.

Some people may find apps that detail net carbs rather than total carbs more useful. They should also read reviews and look at the interface of an app to see whether it can work for them.

People can also find out information about keto diets on other apps and websites, such as YouTube and Reddit. However, not all of this advice will be from professionals who are qualified to educate someone about nutrition.

If someone has a health condition or is on medication, they should check with their doctor before starting a new diet.

Visceral fat, also known as belly fat, is found inside the abdominal cavity.

What is a ketogenic diet

A ketogenic diet, or keto for short, is a low-carb, high-fat diet that can provide a number of health benefits including helping you to lose visceral fat.

A keto diet effectively turns the body into a fat-burning machine, while simultaneously helping a person lose weight and boost their energy levels.

The keto diet has some similar traits reminiscent of the popular Atkins diet and other low-carb plants.

The diet involves dramatically reducing the carbohydrate consumption and substituting fat instead.

The keto diet was originally created to treat neurological diseases including epilepsy, however, over the last century, countless studies have examined the other health benefits this diet can offer.

Ketogenic diets are effective for losing weight, burning belly fat and lowering the risk factors for certain disease.

While low-fat diets are traditionally recommended for those looking to lose their belly fat, research shows that keto is, in fact, a superior approach to helping lose visceral fat.

Unlike many diets which leave a person feeling deprived and hungry, the keto diet is satisfying and leaves a person feeling fuller for longer due to its high consumption of protein.

Protein may be the most important macronutrient for weight loss.

Research indicates that it can help reduce cravings by a whopping 60 percent, boost metabolism by 80 to 100 calories per day and helps a person to consume 441 calories less a day.

Not only can a high protein diet help you to lose fat, but it may also help a person to avoid regaining weight.

Protein is particularly effective in reducing belly fat.

In a study with the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the intake of macronutrients and how it effects waist circumferences was investigated.

The research indicated that protein was linked to a significantly reduced chance of belly fat gain over five years in women.

The study concluded that some macronutrient subgroups in the study had a significant loss of waist circumference.

It was also revealed that refined carbs and oils added to more abdominal fat and linked fruits and vegetables to help reduce fat.

In a study with the National Library of Medicine, the ketogenic diet and how it helps with fat loss was analysed.

The study noted: “The ketogenic diet is a very low-carbohydrate, high-fat, and adequate-protein diet that induces many metabolic adaptions when calories intake is not limited.

“It’s therapeutic use in a range of diseases including cancer is currently investigated with the objective to assess the impact of a six-week ketogenic diet on the abdominal fat distribution in adults.”

The study included 28 overweight and obese adults and found that those who followed a ketogenic diet lost more fat, especially visceral fat, than people following a low-fat diet.

Keto diet plan: Best snacks to help lose weight fast according to a nutritionist – Express

  • How to lose belly fat on a Keto diet without intense exercise

Nutrition Associate at Vitl (insert link) Camelia Dickson explained: “Ketogenic diets, which are high in fat, moderate protein and very low carbohydrate (20-50g/2000kcal), originally came about having shown success in controlling symptoms of diabetes and epilepsy.

“Although we are aware that the keto diet is not for everyone, the various benefits – which include weight loss, energy increase and mental clarity – can be quickly recognised and maintained sustainably, explaining its popularity.

“As with all restrictive diets (ie. cutting out food groups), preparation plays a key role in ensuring safety and efficacy, to avoid possible deficiencies, and to encourage compliance as your body adapts to a new regime.”

Preparing snacks in advance will help you follow the diet more closely ensuring that you stay to the high fat, low carb diet.

Chia Pudding

Chia seeds have many health benefits including weight loss due to their protein and fibre content.

Camelia said: “A brilliant snack to support you through a 3pm energy slump, chia seeds are nutrient rich and keto-compliant with a 20% protein content and 34-40g (100% daily recommendation) of dietary fibre per 100g).

“Chia pudding can be prepared in large batches and frozen or stored in the fridge.”

You can make chia pudding using a milk or dairy-free milk and adding chia seeds, maple syrup and vanilla. This then needs to be left in the fridge overnight which should enable the pudding to become rich and creamy.

This recipe is high in fat, and per serving it contains around 56g.

The nutrition expert explains: “Egg albumin (the egg white) is nature’s most complete source of protein making eggs a keto breakfast to start your day off on the right foot.

“As protein plays a role in glucose metabolism, it will support blood sugar levels throughout the day to avoid the energy dips responsible for cravings and irresponsible food choices.”

Ingredients (serves 6):

• 150g bacon, cooked and chopped
• 16 ounce bag frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
• 6 large eggs
• 50g onion, thinly sliced or minced
• 3/4 cup heavy cream
• 8 ounces feta cheese
• Seasonings like salt and pepper

Nuts are a great snack to consume when following the keto diet - around one portion contains 29g of fat

1. Cook the bacon until crisp and chop
2. Grease a 8×8 glass dish. Preheat oven
3. Thaw the spinach and squeeze dry. Slice the onion very thinly and crumble the feta
4. Put all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix with a hand mixer until totally combined
5. Pour into the prepared pan and spread with a rubber spatula
6. Place in the middle of the oven and cook for 40 minutes

Per serving this will contain around 26g of fat and just six grams of carbs, making it the perfect healthy keto-friendly snack.

Camelia said: “This is a great source of omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants vitamin E and selenium – and studies suggest that nut consumption can positively modify your lipid profile and helps increase your energy expenditure while resting.”

You can use nuts including almonds, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, cacao nibs, coconut.

Nuts contain a high fat content, and although that is the main aim of a keto diet, they should be consumed in moderation.

A portion of nuts (around 50g) contains around 29g of fat while only 11g carbs.

Can the Keto Diet Help Prevent Migraine Attacks? – Healthline

The ketogenic, or keto, diet is a diet rich in fats, moderate in protein, and very low in carbs.

It has long been used to treat epilepsy, a brain disorder that causes seizures.

Owing to its therapeutic effects in managing epilepsy, the keto diet has been suggested to alleviate or prevent other brain disorders like migraine.

This article examines the evidence to determine whether the keto diet can help prevent migraine.

Keto refers to a diet that consists primarily of fats with very few carbs — usually less than 50 grams daily (1, 2).

For reference, the average American adult consumes 200–350 grams of carbs daily (2).

Carbs are found in a variety of foods, such as fruits, breads, cereals, pasta, milk and other dairy products, as well as starchy vegetables like potatoes and corn.

Normally, your body breaks down carbs from these foods into glucose to supply your cells with energy.

Yet, when you severely restrict carbs from your diet for 3–4 days, your body must look for alternative fuel sources to meet its energy needs (1).

It does so by breaking down fats in your liver to produce ketones, which your body and brain can easily use for energy.

Your body enters a metabolic state called ketosis when blood ketone levels rise above normal.

It has been suggested that these ketones have protective effects against migraine (3).

Migraine is characterized by headaches that cause severe throbbing or pulsing pain, usually on one side of your head (4).

This pain may be accompanied by other symptoms, such as nausea and sensitivity to light or sound.

While the exact mechanism remains unclear, it’s thought that the ketones produced while on a keto diet restore brain excitability and energy metabolism to counteract brain inflammation in people with migraine (5, 6, 7, 8).


Consuming a low number of carbs on a keto diet forces your body to shift its metabolism from using carbs as fuel to using ketones. These ketones have been suggested to alleviate migraine.

Early research has suggested that the keto diet may be beneficial for preventing or treating migraine.

The first report dates back to 1928, when medical literature reported that 39% of people experienced some improvement in migraine frequency and severity with the keto diet (9).

A later study in 1930 demonstrated that 28% of people with migraine who followed a keto diet experienced no migraine attacks for up to 3 months after entering ketosis, with another 25% reporting less severe or less frequent migraine attacks (10).

However, since these reports, interest in the keto diet for migraine steadily declined, likely related to the diet’s strict nature and the development of over-the-counter and prescription medications for managing the condition.

Interest was later renewed when a 2015 observational study found that migraine frequency was significantly reduced in women who followed a low calorie keto diet for 1 month, compared with a standard low calorie diet (11).

Still, compared with the standard diet, women who followed the keto diet lost significantly more weight, suggesting that the reduction in migraine frequency may also be linked to weight loss rather than the keto diet itself.

To determine whether weight loss is linked to a decrease in migraine attack frequency, researchers performed a follow-up study.

The study noted that participants with migraine experienced an average of three fewer attacks per month while on a very low calorie keto diet, compared with a very low calorie non-keto diet, despite similar weight loss between the diets (12).

Strengthening these findings, another study observed significant reductions in migraine frequency, duration, and severity after a 1-month keto diet (8).

Collectively, these results suggest that the keto diet may treat migraine but not prevent the condition entirely.


Studies have demonstrated that the keto diet may help reduce migraine frequency, duration, and severity.

The current evidence suggests that a keto diet can help reduce migraine frequency, duration, or severity.

However, there’s still much to be learned about the keto diet before it can be routinely recommended as a primary or supplementary treatment option for people with migraine.

For example, it’s unknown whether a state of ketosis must be maintained continuously or only some of the time to experience its protective effects against migraine.

Moreover, all of the studies showing the beneficial effects of the keto diet on migraine were performed in adults who had overweight or obesity based on their body mass index (BMI).

Therefore, it’s unknown whether adults with a BMI in the “normal” range would experience the same benefits.

Most of the studies were also performed by the same group of researchers in the same geographical location and setting, which could bias the results and limit the generalizability of the findings to other populations.

Aside from these study weaknesses, the keto diet can be difficult to follow long term and cause changes to bowel habits. Plus, it may be contraindicated in people with certain liver conditions, such as pancreatitis, liver failure, and fat-metabolism-related disorders (2, 13).

Interestingly, a study is underway to determine whether ketone supplements prevent migraine (14).

Exogenous ketone supplements are produced synthetically but have been shown to increase blood ketone levels, mimicking what happens when you follow a keto diet (15, 16).

That said, ketone supplements may be an alternative to following a keto diet for managing migraine attacks.

Still, additional studies are needed to confirm the keto diet’s ability to manage migraine.


While the keto diet may be a promising treatment option for migraine, additional studies are needed.

The keto diet is a diet that shifts your metabolism from burning carbs to ketones for fuel.

These ketones may have protective effects against migraine, a brain disorder that causes throbbing head pain.

While promising, additional studies are needed to determine the efficacy of the keto diet for managing migraine.
