I'm looking to go full keto from next week, albeit meat free and with limited diary i.e. no cow products. I'm mainly doing this for health reasons as i have epilepsy, and some studies have shown that it helps reduce seizure frequency. I understand it's rather challenging going keto without meat, but for moral reasons i won't eat meat unless it's organic and free-range. Within months i should be in a financial position to introduce some organic meats. In the meantime i plan to get most of my protein from fish, eggs, nuts and seeds.
If you think you may have a medical emergency, immediately call your doctor or dial 911. This piece of advice is based on theory and consistent experience from clinicians using it, and people testing it . This was also demonstrated in a small pilot study with healthy subjects.
When you limit carbs, your body starts to burn fat, rather than glucose, for energy. You go into ketosis — when your liver converts fatty acids into molecules called ketones, an alternative source of fuel. Learn more about keto and how it works with this beginner’s guide.
