Is {vegan/vegetarian} Keto Possible?

A friend just asked me, can you get keto while taking the whole foods supplementation??

Well, yes, if you are following the big trend right now of ‪ketosis‬, you wouldn’t do the shakes because you’ll be like, NO… that’s 1/3 of my carbs.
Carbohydrate (total, not “net”): less than 50 gm/day, but ideally closer to 30 gm/day. However most using the Keto apps are using net carbs, the carbs without fiber and in fact recent studies show that soluble fiber can lower blood glucose levels. Right? So net carbs are 12, and that’s out of 30 – 50 they are allowed per day.



Unfortunately since we need to keep our body in ketosis without people are going all ‪‎keto‬ without many veggies and practically no fruits (a few berries/day). So those folks of course could benefit from taking whole foods encapsulated to supplement the thousands of phytonutrients they would normally get from a diet rich in fruits and veggies. Does that make sense? Your body has thousands of needs for the antioxidants and the vitamins and minerals that you are not going to get without supplementation, and most supplementation out there is just garbage.



Of course you can also use some of the latest modifications on the Florida ketosis powders without losing all of those veggies and that’s what I am looking to do now that 3.0 is available. I was not a big fan of the salts as a stand alone supplement. Beta-hydroxybutyrate levels are higher in people on the ketogenic diet, and children with the highest levels of beta-hydroxybutyrate had the most severe heart problems in studies that I have read recently. However when used with prebiotics, and vegan, well I have decided to give it a try. Butyric acid produced by prebiotics can inhibit some of the enzymes that I want to be careful about in my own diet. {https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDAC3} So if you want to follow keto, low carb, great. The whole foods shake I use is also Low-Glycemic and with the powdered fruit and veg it can give you the transformation you are looking for. Do the research as you know I am big on personal nutritional truth. For me it’s a very personal decision, and I will keep you up to date on it.
