The Keto Cycle meal plan is a fat-rich, low-carb eating plan. This plan is distinctive for its exceptionally high-fat content, typically making up to 70% to 80% of total daily calories. We suggest following this plan until the desired amount of weight is lost.
How does it work?
The Keto diet causes ketones to be produced by the liver, shifting the body's metabolism away from glucose toward fat utilization. When you eat food high in carbs, your body produces glucose and insulin. While glucose is used as the primary energy source, insulin secretion is created to regulate your bloodstream glucose levels. Insulin is also responsible for storing fat in our body, and if your body produces too much of it, you'll gain weight.
Your daily calorie intake might vary each day, but the most important thing is not to surpass the maximum daily amount of carbs (up to 25 g/day). Our nutritionists consider this (together with other macros), and it reflects in your Keto Cycle meal plan. It takes proficiency to create meal plans that guarantee substantial weight loss results, and we've already done that for you!
