As you know, typical diets are centered on calorie counting. You are told you need to simply consume fewer calories than you burn, and you’ll lose weight regardless of where those calories come from. This is not only wrong but it’s unhealthy.
When you look at the definition of food in the dictionary, you’ll see why:
Food: (n) That which is eaten to sustain life, provide energy and promote the growth and repair of tissues; nourishment. The word “food” comes from an old English word “foda” which meant nourishment.
Eating is not simply a matter of getting calories; it’s about getting nutrients from those calories. And that is what Dr. Berg’s Healthy KetoTM is all about: getting the nutrition you need from the foods you eat.
Another vital point is that not all calories are created equal when it comes to your hormones. Carb calories trigger fat-making and fat-storing hormones the most, while calories from fat trigger those same hormones the least.
In other words, you need to eat keto-approved fat to lose fat.
