The Ketogenic diet should be easy to stick with, but in a carb-run world, things can get tricky. While everyone is different, we are all fundamentally very similar. Our bodies were not designed to run on carbohydrates as a primary food source, especially refined ones like sugar and flour. Instead, our bodies are genetically programmed to use fat and protein to get energy.
Additionally, when following the ketogenic diet, people often lose hard-earned muscle as quickly as fat. With the low amount of protein required by the ketogenic diet, it’s hard to meet the protein demands of growing muscles. A diet needs to become a lifestyle, a way of eating that ensures the weight stays off and your new look stays on. If you can’t stick to the diet and turn it into a lifestyle, then what is the use? We at Purus Labs ran into similar problems, and decided to do something to make things a little easier on ourselves and our fellow Ketogenic dieters. Enter, KetoFeed®.
With KetoFeed®, we knew that we had to up the protein intake for the average athlete. However, we didn’t want the protein intake to be high enough to spike insulin levels and mess with the athlete’s ability to keep shedding body fat.
We added 20g of high quality whey protein, filtered to remove all sugar, and to make sure that the protein didn't mess with the athletes’ fat-loss goals, we combined the protein with THE crucial component of the keto diet, FAT! MCT(medium chain triglyceride) fat, to be exact. The same type of fat that makes coconuts so healthy for you. This same MCT fat slows down the absorption of the protein and prevents it from spiking insulin levels.
KetoFeed® helps the body to maintain muscle with clean protein, burn fat for fuel and gather energy from MCTs. It’s an important tool for anyone participating in the ketogenic diet (or lifestyle) to have in his or her arsenal. Arguably the most important part? KetoFeed® tastes delicious and satiates carb-y dessert cravings!
Whey protein isolates generally have a higher percentage of pure protein. So pure, in fact, that they are almost completely void of carbohydrates and lactose. Thus, whey protein isolate won’t spike your blood sugar like other protein supplements, but will provide that much-needed fuel to help you to build lean muscle and burn fat more efficiently.
MCT fats, or medium-chain triglycerides are healthy fats from coconuts. MCTs help to provide neural and physical energy by converting to ketones within the liver. They can also help you to feel full longer, and help whey protein to process more slowly, further lowering the chance of a blood sugar spike.
