20+ Must Have Keto Thanksgiving Desserts

Following a Keto Diet during thanksgiving might sound difficult. Not being able to eat certain foods sucks, but luckily for you I’ve put together a list of 20+ Must Have Keto Thanksgiving Desserts.

 

Just What Is Ketogenic?

“Ketogenic” is a term for a low-carb diet. The idea is for you to get more calories from protein and fat and less from carbohydrates. You cut back most on the carbs that are easy to digest, like sugar, soda, pastries, and white bread.

How It Works

When you eat less than 50 grams of carbs a day, your body eventually runs out of fuel (blood sugar) it can use quickly. This typically takes 3 to 4 days. Then you’ll start to break down protein and fat for energy, which can make you lose weight. This is called ketosis. It’s important to note that the ketogenic diet is a short term diet that’s focussed on weight loss rather than the pursuit of health benefits.

Talk To Your Doctor

Talk with your doctor first to find out if it’s safe for you to try a ketogenic diet, especially if you have type 1 diabetes.

Weight Loss

A ketogenic diet may help you lose more weight in the first 3 to 6 months than some other diets. This may be because of several reasons but research is very biased both for and against and none of this has been proved yet.

Exercise

A ketogenic diet may help endurance athletes like runners and cyclists when they train. Over time, it helps your muscle-to-fat ratio and raises the amount of oxygen your body is able to use when it’s working hard. But while it might help in training, it may not work as well as other diets for peak performance.

Side Effects

The more common side effects aren’t usually serious: You might have constipation, mild low blood sugar, or indigestion. Much less often, low-carb diets can lead to kidney stones or high levels of acid in your body (acidosis). Other side effects can include the “keto flu,” which may include headache, weakness, and irritability; bad breath; and fatigue.

Diet With Care

When your body burns its fat stores, it can be hard on your kidneys. Starting a ketogenic diet or going back to a normal diet afterwards can be tricky if you’re obese (because of other health issues you’re likely to have). If you have any health conditions, make diet changes slowly and only with the guidance of your doctor.

Too Many Refined Carbs Is A Problem

Personally I am not a great fan of the ketogenic diet system. However, I do think most people eat too much refined carbohydrate and in particular sugars. Adding some Keto meals or dishes into your diet will not cause any problems and may help you with certain things. Everything in moderation is one of those wise tenets we seem to forget too often.
