Fat is your friend, not your foe — especially when it comes to losing weight and feeding your brain. While this may seem anywhere from crazy to counterproductive to some, followers of the ketogenic diet have been supporting this claim for almost 100 years. The Keto Diet is comprised of 75% fats, 20% proteins, and 5% carbs.

Hence, compared with the Standard American Diet (SAD), the keto diet is not only safe for helping overweight and obese people lose weight, it also supports those who want to improve their brain health.
The Ketogenic diet, or Keto diet, is based on the idea that eating mostly healthy fats, consuming high-quality protein in moderation, and restricting starchy simple carbohydrates provides your body with the fuel you need to lose body fat without hunger, weakness, and fatigue.
The reduction in carb intake puts your body into a metabolic state called nutritional Ketosis. During Ketosis, your body no longer relies on glucose as a primary energy source.
Instead, your liver converts fat into ketones, or ketone bodies, which are a great source of fuel for your brain.
On the Keto Food Program you’ll get most of your calories from healthy fats found in foods like Fish, Salmon, avocados, grass-fed Organic butter, olives, olive oil, coconut oil, Organic Grass-Fed Meats, Wild Game, nuts, and seeds.
Not All Nuts Work
However, keep in mind that some nuts and seeds are better than others. You’ll want to choose those that are high in fats and lower in carbs; Brazil nuts, almonds, walnuts, chia seeds, and flaxseed are all good options.
You can also eat all of the non-starchy, leafy vegetables you want, as well as other low-carb vegetables like broccoli, peppers, cauliflower, green beans, asparagus, cucumber, and zucchini.
More Protein, Less Keto…..Transition Into It!
In moderation, you can eat protein in the form of hormone free grass-fed meats, pasture-raised hormone free poultry, cage-free hormone free eggs, and wild-caught or Game Farm with Control ratings fish.
Finally, if you want to reach for something sweet, 90% Sugar FREE dark chocolate is your best option or Lilly’s sugar free Chocolate, sweetened only with Stevia.
What foods should we avoid for weight reduction?
For starters, remember that the Keto diet restricts the intake of carbohydrates to achieve a shift from glucose to ketones as a primary fuel source. In order to avoid food high in carbs, limit fruit consumption as it’s higher in sugar content — and forego fruit juice altogether. (See List Above)
You should also avoid grains or starches such as rice or pasta, beans or legumes. Root vegetables once a week is ok. Avoid any low-fat or diet products, which are typically highly processed and high in carbs. Corn Syrup and “Cane” anything needs to be avoided. CUT THE GRAINS. GO VEGI’S
Sustain Your Brain with Supplements
Switching from burning glucose as energy to burning fat can be challenging at first. An occasional few people will experience sugar cravings and feelings of a little less energy.
To avoid discomfort and support your central nervous system and brain function, there are a number of vitamins and supplements that I recommend while on the keto diet: Phyto-Multi, EPA-DHA 720, Curcumin 400x, Picolinate 500, Alpha-Lipoic Acid.

Medium-chain triglycerides (MCT OIL)
A type of fat molecule found in coconut oil, MCTs are extremely beneficial for energy and fat-burning. They also enhance ketone production, positively impacting brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which supports your brain’s existing neurons while encouraging new neuron and synapse growth.
