The 3 Types Of Ketogenic Diets

The 3 Types Of Ketogenic Diets

 

When starting the Ketogenic diet, it is important to note that there are actually three different types, and depending on your lifestyle and preferences, one may be more enjoyable to follow.

 

The first type is SKD (Standard Ketogenic diet), which contains the similar macronutrient breakdown listed previously, and is both a very popular and enjoyable method.

 

The second type is CKD (Cyclical Ketogenic diet), which includes days of the week (typically 1-2 days) in which you would eat a higher amount of carbs, and then continue on the low-carb, high fat diet. This method is great for someone who just simply loves carbs (like myself), and cannot live without them. Your body still receives the great benefits of the Keto diet, without feeling deprived of your beloved pasta, rice, and donuts.

 

The third type is TKD (Targeted Ketogenic diet), which allows you to consume carbs on the days you workout. Although the Keto diet is extremely efficient in providing your body with the proper energy to sustain even the toughest workouts, some people prefer to consume carbs prior to a workout, and TKD allows you to do this, while still following Keto.

 

And there you have it, a complete break-down of the Ketogenic diet. Now what are you waiting for, ditch the bagel and enjoy a delicious steak, your body’s waiting!

It’s hard to imagine that a physician recommended diet would be unsafe, but then again, doctors used to demonize fat, and are now actually recommending fat...pretty crazy when you think about it. But yes, the Ketogenic diet is safe, however, there are a few things to keep in mind when starting/being on the Keto Diet.
