Many people are trying the ketogenic diet (“keto”), an approach to weight loss that involves cutting your daily carb intake to just 20 grams of net carbohydrates. The theory is that drastically reducing your carb intake forces your body to change the fuel source it uses for energy. The theory is that, over time, your body enters a state called ketosis, which means it burns fat rather than sugar as its primary energy source. (Keep in mind that you should always talk with your healthcare provider before beginning a new diet.)
The good news is that eating on the keto diet is anything but bland and boring. Avocados, full-fat milk and yogurt, peanut butter, and even sugar-free whipped cream are all a go on the ketogenic diet. Low-carb smoothies are a great way to mix things up as a breakfast replacement, snack, or treat. Plus, they help you get your daily intake of essential vitamins and minerals.
