A possible ray of hope for those who aspire to lose weight, but for whom the tried-and-true keto diet is just too stressful: with Lazy Keto, you only have to watch the carbohydrates.
Lazy Keto is a new variation of the keto diet reported by Healthline.
Similar to the ketogenic diet, it is often used as a method for losing weight, but promises to be much easier to follow in the process.
In classic keto, the intake of calories, carbohydrates, fat, and protein is carefully calculated to achieve the state of ketosis, a metabolic state in which the body begins to burn primarily its own body fat.
Lazy Keto is said to work in a similar way, but is much less strict in that only carbohydrate intake needs to be watched.
The relaxed version of the Keto diet
Lazy Keto is a less restrictive version of the traditional high-fat, very low-carb ketogenic diet.
Originally intended as a medical approach to treat epilepsy, the ketogenic diet has become one of the most common diets for weight loss nearly 100 years later.
By consuming foods high in protein and abundant in fatty acids, but with little to no carbohydrates, the body’s metabolism adjusts and then burns primarily fat as its primary fuel source.
This so-called ketosis is the real secret of keto’s success and goes hand in hand with hair-trigger monitoring of your own diet.
Ketosis may not be achieved
Possibly not quite as fast, but much more relaxed, one’s weight loss goals can also be achieved by simply drastically limiting the intake of carbohydrates.
This is then the so-called lazy keto diet, in which carbohydrates are limited to about 5-10% of the total daily number of calories, or to about 20-50 grams per day.
For pasta and pizza lovers, this form of diet is also certainly not a walk in the park, but at least nothing more needs to be logged, reconciled, and weighed beyond that.
The security about the fact that one brought the body actually into the Ketose condition, one withdraws oneself thereby however also. But it’s not called Lazy Keto for nothing.
