Introduction

WHAT IS KETO DIET?

Ketogenic diets focus on enhancing the process of Ketosis. Ketosis is a natural process wherein the body pledges to help you survive when the food intake is low. During the ketosis process, your body produces ketones which are come from the breakdown of liver fats.

Ketones are produced by the body only if the consumption of carbs is low and you moderate your protein consumption. They are often used as fuel throughout the body (especially the brain).

The whole purpose of this diet is to induce the body into the ketosis metabolic state. The main aim here is not to do this through the starvation of calories but instead aim to do this through the starvation of carbs. Which means that the ketogenic diet is carbs-free or very low on carbs. The lower the composition of carbs in your keto diet, the quicker your body produces ketones.

Sip on a keto green smoothie or green juice, and you have an easy way to support weight loss, higher energy, and glowing skin. While typical green smoothies and green juices look healthy, take caution: The high sugar content can sabotage these amazing benefits.

Whether you’re on a low-carb or keto diet or just want to make your green drink healthier, these detoxifying smoothies and green juices taste delicious and keep carbs low. With flavourful ingredients and healthy fats, you won’t miss the sugar at all.

This recipe of the keto green smoothie is not only low on carbs and high on proteins, they are also a very good source of iron.
