The keto diet has been making headlines lately and we’re going to break it all down for you
Body Spartan has been using a keto diet in the Genesis Program since 2014, and in the women’s shredding program Revolution since this year. It’s creators, Gabe and Priscilla Tuft, have been using a keto diet for over 15 years. Priscilla, a Master Sports Nutritionist, pro-fitness competitor, and fitness cover model, developed the Genesis and Revolution keto diets based on her personal experience and knowledge of the keto diet. She also lost over 100-lbs post-pregnancy using the Genesis and Revolution keto diets.
The video below is a Facebook live that Gabe and Priscilla Tuft did recently. It covers all of the major keto questions and has a live Q&A with the viewers.
Why a keto diet?
A keto diet will allow your body to burn fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates. This has several benefits including rapid body fat loss, lowering of blood pressure, reduced hunger cravings, steady energy levels, and even muscle gain.
What does a keto diet consist of?
Basically, it’s protein and healthy fats with ultra low carbs. Protein will usually consist of:
- ground beef
Healthy fats will typically include the following:
- Olive oil
- Nuts such as almonds, walnuts, pecans, cashews, pine nuts, etc.
- Fats from meats
- Fats from egg yolks (whole eggs)
- Coconut oil
- Nut butters (almond butter, peanut butter)
What are the side effects of a keto diet?
Keto diet users don’t typically experience any negative side effects. The first 7-14 days while a user is transitioning into a ketogenic state, user may experience hunger and some tiredness. This however, is completely normal. Once your body enters a ketogenic state, it will burn fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates and you won’t experience the hunger cravings that you typically would on a normal carbohydrate diet.
What are the benefits of a keto diet?
Aside from keeping your body in an anabolic state (ripe for muscle growth), here are several benefits of the keto diet:
- Weight loss
- Controls blood sugar and improves diabetes (see study here)
- Increased mental focus (see study here)
- Increased energy
- Normalized hunger – no more crashes after eating
- Lowers blood pressure due to excess body weight
- Improves cholesterol levels (see study here)
- Improves acne (see study here)
What kind of results can I expect on a keto diet?
Below are before and after photos of Genesis and Revolution customers that have used our custom keto diet to see massive success!
Can I eat fruit on the keto diet?
In the women’s program, Revolution, Priscilla has altered the formula slightly and it allows for some fruit. In Genesis, the men’s program, it allows fruit only on your re-feed days. This is your once-a-week carbohydrate intake day. Here, you rest and allow your glycogen stores to replenish so that you maintain your strength for the upcoming week’s workouts.
Auto-calculated macros for keto in both Genesis and Revolution Programs
Both our men’s and women’s shredding (weight loss) programs include auto-calculated macros. This means that you will see your amounts of protein, carbs, and fats per meal displayed on your dashboard every morning. These macros are 100% custom just for you, your body, and your goals. They are dependent upon the information you enter in your questionnaire when you first log into your program. You can see in the image below how this is displayed in your dashboard.
Both of these programs include:
