A true keto diet requires planning

Following the ketogenic diet requires knowing the exact ratio of macronutrients—such as grams of carbs vs. fat vs. protein—you’re putting in your body. “Overall, only about 5 percent of your daily calories should come from carbs and about 15 percent or so from protein,” says Josh Axe, DNM, CNS, DC, of DrAxe.com, and co-founder of Ancient Nutrition. The rest of your calories should come from fat. “Sticking with the right ketogenic macronutrient ratio can make meal planning and eating out a bit tricky at first. But once you get the hang of it, it’s pretty simple to prepare high-fat ketogenic meals for yourself or to ask restaurants to make some basic adjustments, like replacing all starchy sides with veggies and leaving off any bread or bun.”
