Guilt Free Flourless Keto Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Cookies
September 4, 2016
We have tied up with Mumbai based food blogger, Ms Mahua Kamat, and have also taken up the Keto-life! Following is an excerpt from her blog explaining the basic science behind this diet:
"Simply put The Ketogenic (or Keto) Diet is a super low carbohydrate high fat diet coupled with a moderate protein consumption. You’ll hear the term LCHF a lot. That’s where it comes from. Low Carb High Fat.
To follow this way of eating you need to reduce your carb intake quite radically and supplement it with increasing your fat intake. This drastic reduction in carbs gets your body to switch from using glucose for energy to using fats making your body go into a state of Ketosis.
To sum it up,
Low carb intake = Body in starvation mode (ketosis) = Body using fat for fuel (ketones) = Weight loss! Yay! (And an assortment of other health benefits)"
