Harness the power of the Keto Bee Program to achieve your health and weight loss goals the accountable way. Ketosis is the state in which your body begins to use fat for energy. To trigger ketosis, you must follow a carefully and safely formulated ketogenic diet, which we will help you plan. To keep you accountable and invested, our Keto Bee Program was developed to limit the time it takes your body to enter ketosis, while ensuring your body is supplied with all essential fats, protein, and enzymes. When you follow the Keto Bee Program you will burn fat, optimize brain power, and improve your overall energy levels.
How Many Net Carbs Are In Your Favorite Foods?
Ketosis is the state where your body burns fats for fuel instead of the glucose it usually metabolizes, allowing you to drop weight and have greater energy, among other benefits. The glucose that your body usually metabolizes comes from the carbohydrates and sugars you eat.
Getting your body into a state of ketosis requires limiting how many carbohydrates you consume each day to less than 20 grams. This means that you must pay close attention to the nutrition labels on everything you eat and drink, so you know exactly how many carbs you’re taking in.
To remain safely in a state of ketosis – and make sure you’re properly in ketosis – you need to follow a carefully designed diet and have regular check-in lab tests, which are included in the Keto Bee Program.
Macros is a shorter version of the word “macronutrients,” which are the various types of food required in relatively large amounts in our daily diet. Macronutrients, for us, mean fat, protein, and carbohydrates. You need to keep these three types of macros in the correct balance to achieve ketosis, which means keeping count of your macros.
Your nutritionist will calculate the macros needed for your individual goals during your consultation. To figure out how much of each macro you should have each day, we take the target number of calories (e.g. 1,600 calories) needed for your body type and break it down into 70-75% healthy fat, 20-25% protein, and only 5% of encouraged carbohydrates.
If you look at the nutrition labels on the foods you consume, you’ll notice that carbohydrates listed are broken down into fiber and sugar. The fiber portion of the carbs you eat don’t affect your ability to stay in ketosis and will not raise your blood sugar. What’s left are the net carbs – the sugar content – and that is what will be used to calculate your daily carbohydrate consumption.
We have a free carb calculator on our website to help make this part easy for you.
Not long! The human body can store enough glycogen (the form of glucose your body stores) for about two days. Most people will enter ketosis after two days of consuming 5% or less of carbohydrates.
Remember, to stay in ketosis, most of the food you eat should be composed of healthy fats and protein, with only a small amount of carbohydrates. We provide you with a 14-Day Keto Bee Meal Plan and a complete Restocking Guide for your kitchen to get you started. We also have updated recipes on our website that are submitted by our patients.
After you’ve been on a ketogenic diet for a few days, you may notice you’re not feeling very good. Your symptoms may include fatigue, irritability, headache, sugar cravings, nausea, and difficulty concentrating among others. You’re not actually sick, however: This phenomena is referred to as “keto flu” and generally happens between the third and fifth day of your ketogenic diet. You’re feeling these effects as your body makes the switch from burning sugar to burning fats for energy. You may also notice yourself losing a lot of water weight during this period. This is a perfectly natural process and you will get through it! Taking your ketogenic supplements and drinking plenty of electrolyte water most often prevent this from occurring at all.
You might be worried that a ketogenic diet will raise your cholesterol since it encourages you to eat so many fats – that’s not the case, however, when you eat a carefully balanced ketogenic diet. We specialize in ensuring that you’re eating well for your whole body, and put emphasis on consuming healthy fats. While on the ketogenic diet, you may experience your “good” cholesterol (HDL) increasing and your “bad” cholesterol (LDL) decreasing through the consumption of healthy fats!
