Ketogenic Diet Plan

Ketogenic diet / menu

  • Keep carbs below30g per day
  • It takes around 2 weeks to become ‘fat adapted’
  • It takes 3 or 4 days to get into ketosis
  • Eat at your own risk – at this time, I don’t advocate ketogenic diets, but I am very interested in them and their potential benefits
  • For extra calories supplement with a protein drink mixed with MCTs and/or coconut oil/olive oil
