Boosting Ketogenic Diet with Alkaline Water

By 2nd January 2019 No Comments

Ketogenic diet is a low-carb diet that has been proven to boost health, performance, and weight loss. Going on keto or ketogenic diet involves reducing carbohydrate intake to 20-30 grams and replacing it with fat. This puts your body in a metabolic state called ketosis where your body uses stored fat as the major energy source.

Unlike traditional weight loss diets, ketogenic diet won’t let anyone go through calorie starvation. There are fewer cravings and more creative ways to perk up every meal.

Bacon, cheese, greek yoghurt, and other healthy animal products plus leafy vegetables would be part of an everyday meal for someone on a keto diet.

Although keto diet provide lots of health benefits as well as being an energy booster, there are quite a number who experience nausea and fatigue on the first few weeks. This is known as the keto flu.

This is where alkaline water comes in.

When the body undergoes ketosis, it becomes acidic which causes chronic inflammation that tells the body to hold on to its fat stores. When that happens, the body doesn’t know where to acquire its energy from. That is why you feel tired.

One way to counter this is to include alkaline water in your keto diet. Alkaline water helps to neutralise the acidity of the stomach and allow the body to maintain the fat-as-fuel state. There are also other alkaline foods that you can eat while on the keto diet such as broccoli and tomatoes.

A good way to include alkaline water in keto diet is to make bulletproof coffee to start the day. Here’s how to do it:
1. Brew coffee with alkaline water
2. Add a tbsp of coconut or MCT oil
3. Add 1 tbsp ghee
4. Optional: an egg yolk from a free range chicken

That’s all and it’s keto and alkalic at the same time.

Adding alkaline water to a keto diet is a win-win strategy. It gives you the benefits for both keto and alkaline water while balancing the effects of the diet to make you feel good and perform better!
