Dirty Keto Vs Green Keto

Im sure you’ve heard about the Keto diet by now, who hasn’t? But have you heard about “green keto?” Yes, there are various levels of the ketogenic diet and different types. We will not talk about too many details, but lets talk about the basics of the regular keto diet.

The regular ketogenic diet favors acidic foods such as meat and strictly reduced carbs. It also limits fruits to berries. It also has higher potential side effects of the keto flu, dehydration, and nausea. It also is based on eating about 75% of your calories based on fats and not necessarily all healthy fats.

Lets talk “green keto.” This type of keto favors alkaline, proteins and plant foods such as leafy green vegetables and other low carb vegetables. It also favors free range and clean protein sources. Alkaline fats are more favorable her as well like avocados, nuts and olive oil. The ratio and plate image focuses on a ton of low carb veggies, and a higher percentage of high quality proteins and fats. Green keto also encourages ketosis through intermittent fasting and no snacking. Green keto also generally focuses on preventing the “keto flu” by incorporating plenty of plant based alkaline foods and “testing instead of guessing.” It also has a natural detoxifying effect not he body by the consumption of lots of green, low carb veggies. By consuming these leafy greens it helps eliminate the build up of acidity in your cells.
