30 Day Ketogenic Vegetarian Meal Plan
Is a ketogenic diet for vegetarians reasonably possible?
To be perfectly honest with you, keto vegetarian is the most hardcore dieting imaginable. It can be mentally and emotionally exhausting to feel deprived of all the juicy, processed foods, so this diet isn’t for beginners. Another challenge is adapting this kind of diet to your lifestyle while keeping its core tenets intact. As soon as you start a keto vegetarian diet, you’ll realize why carbs are so popular: they’re easy to make, handle transport well, and taste great. So, unless you have your logistics down to a science, you’ll find it very difficult to maintain a keto vegetarian diet, but you should try it, nonetheless, and keep trying until you make it.
Eating fewer carbs and more fat lowers insulin, which is responsible for fat storage. By maintaining low insulin in your blood, the body slowly starts to spend its fat reserves and enters a state known as “ketosis”. There are several stages of ketosis, but what you want to aim for is called “optimal ketosis”.
