Keto 101 Back to Basics What is Keto | Trina Belcik

Hey guys. It’s Trina Belcik here from Passion 4 Keto,
real life casual keto. I’ll be posting tons of tips and tricks about
the ketogenic, low carb, high fat lifestyle. If you’re new to my channel, please consider
subscribing and click that bell so you’re notified of all new keto topics. Over the next several weeks, I’ll be breaking
down the keto diet into short videos to make it easier to learn and understand the basics
of keto. In today’s video, I’ll be answering the question,
what is the ketogenic diet, also known as the keto diet. So let’s get started and welcome to keto 101,
the back to basics series. The term keto has become a buzzword on multiple
social platforms in health and nutrition world. Companies are marketing keto snacks, keto
friendly meal preps, and let’s not forget the numerous keto cookbooks that pop up everywhere. But what is keto? Where did the word keto come from? And what does it mean? Keto is short for ketogenic, which describes
a specific kind of diet and lifestyle. The body can run on two types of fuel. One fuel source is sugar from carbohydrates
and the foods that we eat. The other fuel is fat. The ketogenic diet, which is a high fat, moderate
protein, very low carb diet. So low in carbs that the body has to actually
switch to mainly using fat for fuel. When the body is out of sugar, fat is converted
in the liver into energy molecules called ketones. These become our main source of fuel. And the diet that results from that is known
as the keto or ketogenic diet, meaning producing ketones. Pretty nifty, huh? We generally associate the word fat with fat
that’s on our bodies. But fat is also fuel. Dietary fats from whole foods provide our
bodies with energy. The fats that we eat are not what causes us
to gain weight or add more fat on our bodies. There are so many factors at play with weight
gain and weight loss. It’s so much more complicated than the simple
saying “Calories in, calories out”. The ketogenic diet challenges these old beliefs
and sayings. And that’s what can get pretty confusing. Many people know it as a high fat diet, which
to some people sounds so strange and absurd. Actually sounded strange to me when I first
heard of it too. But I’m going to take all the knowledge and
research that I found and break it down into easy to follow short videos that you can learn
and enjoy. During the keto 101 back to basics series,
I’ll be answering all your questions. What is ketosis? What are macros and are they important? Do I need to track macros on keto? Do I need to count calories on keto? Should I track net or total carbs? Is the keto flu really a thing? What foods can I eat or what should I avoid? What is intermittent fasting? Do I really have to fast? Do I need to exercise on keto? Are there different types of keto or is keto
like a one size fits all? Who should do the keto diet? What are exogenous ketones and should I take
them? I asked myself the exact same questions. And over the next few weeks, I’ll be providing
you with the answers. The keto diet isn’t just used as a temporary
fix. In fact, many people enjoy it as a long term
lifestyle. Not just for weight loss, but for long term
health and wellbeing. Many people feel energized, full of mental
clarity. They have stabilized blood sugars. Now one aspect that I found to be so helpful
is that my hunger has decreased and my cravings for sweets have drastically reduced. If I even have any. And therefore, I don’t even need to snack
anymore. I hope you are as excited about this series
as I am. Leave a comment and let me know which topic
you can’t wait to hear about. I hope you’ve found this video to be helpful. If you did, give it a thumbs up. Let me know. If you’re new to my channel, please consider
subscribing. Thanks so much for watching. Take care and I’ll talk to you again real

    Which topic about keto are you most excited to hear about? What do you want to learn about keto?

  2. Joyce Sauvageau Posted on January 30, 2019 at 5:22 pm

    I follow a basic diet I got from a surgeon….meat, vegetables, fruit and nuts. I'm thinking the keto diet is a bit more restrictive like no sodas and fruits like bananas, apples and oranges. I use a Sodastream w/diet syrups. Could I continue w/that?

    Trina, my husband is following the keto diet for the last few months. We have noticed such a difference in him especially in his energy and mood. Thank you
