Have you heard of Lazy Keto? We all know how difficult it is to follow through with any diet and how laziness can be the biggest factor of failure. As keto diets are very popular nowadays, Lazy keto is a new emerging trend on the social media which is an approach of not tracking calories very strictly or keeping close tabs on your food intake with respect to carbs and proteins.
There is a lot of misinformation given that you can consume any food on Lazy Keto as long as you meet the required ratio of fats and carbs. Thus many people consume sugars, bad fats, and processed foods with a ton of additives. This is not true as it can lead to various health problems. Lazy Keto is actually more of a warm-up session. If you find it difficult to adopt a rigorous Keto diet immediately and stick to it, it can be very intimidating. This is where Lazy Keto comes in. Once you get used to dieting, you can switch to a comprehensive diet to ensure best results.
The major advantage that lazy keto offers is that you do not have to keep track of every morsel you eat, which you have to do on a strict keto. But it is still important to have a good idea on how much you can eat and the choice of foods you consume. Initially, when you start your diet, you may need to do some tracking to get the hang of it, as you may not be aware of how many calories each food item contains and what nutrients to choose for each meal of the day. But as you ease into it, you realize that these things happen automatically and hence you don’t always have to put an effort into it.
There are two things you need to keep in mind when on a Lazy Keto diet. These are your fats and your proteins. Healthy fats are your primary energy source while on Keto and also helps curb cravings. Adequately consuming these will help to get healthier and burning more accumulated fats in your body. This also helps as it reduces your feeling of hunger and hence the effort you need to put in a diet. Protein, on the other hand, is important for your physique and muscles. When these are not adequate, your body might try to break down the protein in your muscles and you end up losing muscle strength. Make sure that you keep these two in mind always while on Lazy Keto.
