    6 Sneaky Foods That Are Derailing Your Keto Diet

    By now you’ve heard all about the keto diet — eat more meat and vegetables, avoid sugary foods and things like bread, and you’ll shed pounds, right?

    That’s the general idea. In essence, a ketogenic diet is one that focuses on high-fat, high-protein foods in an effort to force the body to burn fat instead of carbs. Most experts recommend aiming to eat 30 net grams of carbs per day to maintain a proper keto diet.

    Can We Really Blame a Slowing Metabolism?

    Starting in our 20s, and as we age, most of us believe we just naturally tend to gain weight because our metabolism slows. While this may be true after age 60, that is not necessarily the case beforehand.

    Studies are showing that in adulthood weight gain is likely caused by taking in more calories than are burned.
