There are a few different types of keto diets that people can follow, but for weight loss, it is generally recommended to ingest fewer than 50 carbs per day. As far as proportions, the diet is most effective for weight loss when people ingest 70% healthy fats, 25% high quality proteins, and 5% carbohydrates. Ketosis can be measured by using blood, urine or breathe monitors.
People who have certain types of healthy conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, should only follow this diet under the supervision of a licensed physician. At Pacholec Center for Weight Loss, Dr. Barbara Pacholec and our Nurse Practitioner, Lauren DeNeve, have developed a Keto Weight Loss Supervised Program to help our patients be successful and improve their weight loss outcomes following this diet. Visit our website, www.drpacholec.com/ketodiet for more information regarding this program and to set up your visit with Dr. Pacholec in either of our Lutz, FL or St. Petersburg, FL offices.
