The Keto diet intentionally starves the body of carbs in order to induce ketosis, which is a natural process the body undergoes when deprived of foods. But rather than starving the body of food or calories, the Keto diet starves it of carbs and overloads it with fats to trigger the desired metabolic state.
Keto has been shown to be very effective in weight loss, and has also been linked to physical and mental performance benefits.
Our Keto meals:
- Contains about 450-500 calories
- Are nearly devoid of carbohydrates and high in healthy fats and proteins
- Help induce and maintain ketosis
- Have been shown to improve heart health, brain function, energy, and metabolism levels
Like with any diet or regimen, Meal Prep Ottawa recommends that you speak with your physician before committing to a Keto diet. Keto can be particularly shocking for your body and metabolism.
If you have selected “Ketogenic” as your meal plan choice most likely you know what you are getting yourself into, if not let us educate you exactly what “Keto”, short for “Ketogenic really means.
- Keto is a high fat (healthy fats on our plan), moderate protein, and low-carbohydrate program that forces the body to utilize fat as energy instead of carbohydrates.
- The human body uses either “Glucose” found in carbohydrates or “Ketones” found in fats as sources of energy.
- When strictly depriving the human body from Carbohydrates your body soon learns to burn Ketones which are produced by your liver
- It is very important to intake plentiful amounts of healthy fats and leafy green vegetables when following the Ketogenic way of life
- In order to achieve a state of “Ketosis”, where your body is utilizing “Ketones” as energy, you must strictly follow this program
- The average person reaches Ketosis within 2-10 days, must consume less than 30g of carbohydrates a day in most instances, remember that includes vegetables as well, which have carbs surprisingly
Benefits of following the “Keto” lifestyle are the following:
- Stimulate weight loss (great for weight loss challenges)
- Heart Health
- Brain Function
- Boost of Energy
- Boost to your metabolism
It’s taken me a long time to find an excellent vegan meal delivery service in Ottawa that has great meals, great delivery and great service. I’ve tried several companies, but they weren’t great, so I always went back to meal prepping and planning my own meals, which is totally fine too. But during a very busy time at work several months ago, I came across an ad for Meal Prep Ottawa and decided to give them a try while I was very busy, as I was having a hard time making balanced meals. I am SO happy I found them! They are vegan, they taste amazing (I am picky so this is good), I can indicate which foods I don’t want added to my meals, the delivery service is excellent (several texts are sent in advance of the meal arriving at my door) and each meal indicates the macros, which is important to me as I strength train and keep track of my macros. Love, love, love this company! I would highly recommend Meal Prep Ottawa!
After eating only 1 Keto meal, I knew I had made the right choice. Delicious, nutritious, and filling. Portions are perfect. The convenience of having prepared food delivered to my door will surely help me in my weight loss journey as the planning of a meal has already been taken care of!
I am very pleased with the ketogenic meal plan. The food is healthy and excellent, and the price is fair.
Delicious and satisfying. Excellent value.
