Targeted Keto Diet


Targeted Keto Diet is a slight modification of a low-carb/high fat ketonic diet. In general the purpose of any ketonic diet is to trick the body metabolism into switching from carbs to fats to sustain all bodily energy needs. This in effect leads to substantial body fat loss sparing the lean muscle mass.
The only difference is that for athletes and people physically active it helps doing targeted carb pre-loading before any form of physical activity.
This type of a diet revolves around consuming the following ratio of calories a day:
65% from fats,
30% from proteins,
5% from carbs.
In addition to that, separate carb pre-loading may be done before workouts. Usually, a single dose of 30g simple carbs is sufficient to sustain a good 1-hour long workout, without throwing the body out of ketosis.

What this diet achieves is a rapid fat loss, muscle preservation, upped energy, normalized insulin levels, reduction in brain fog, less water retention, lower bad cholesterol, higher good cholesterol, reduced risk of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

Not OK

 How To Follow Targeted Keto Diet:

The major rule is to forget everything that's been learned so far about dieting. It may be a tough concept to comprehend that eating fat burns fat but once the positive results start showing, it will all make a perfect sense.
It's important to have a very strong will to stay away from carbs. This is the staple of the diet, no carbs means no carbs. One cheat meal a week is okay, but munching on cookies everyday won't do, and will keep the body out of ketosis, rendering the diet useless.
This is not only a diet, it is a life style, and should be followed for as long as necessary.

About / History

This isn't my diet. I learned about a while ago, and it's based on an almost 100-years old practice of curing epilepsy in children. The side effect of that treatment was a rapid and successful fat loss.
It's also important to notice that for thousands of years this type of a diet has been the norm for men. As hunters-gatherers men ate fatty meats, veggies, and occasional fruits. This is how our bodies are genetically programmed to feed.

discovery's top tips

1.Stay below 30g of carbs a day to induce ketosis.
2.Have a craving for something sweet? Whip some heavy cream and sweeten it with Splenda. Use it with a cup of low sugar jello.
3.Do not weight yourself everyday. Instead, do it once a week at the same time.
4.Low carb diet dyhadrates, drink a lot of water (1 oz per lb body weight).
5.Steam the veggies, instead of boiling, to preserve all the goodies in them.
6.Keep adequate intake of healthy fats to curb the appetite and spare the muscles from being used as source for energy.
