Keto Foods Flip The Food Pyramid

For a quarter of a century, the Food Guide Pyramid encouraged heaping piles of grains and only the occasional indulgence of fats and oils for ‘healthy living.’ This guidance led to grocery shopping lists heavier on starchy vegetables, whole grain pastas, breads and rice. Today, we can look around and see the fallout of that dysfunction.

The original pyramid was published in 1992, updated in 2005, and discontinued in 2011 with the introduction of the MyPlate food guide, but still these resources recommend a disproportionately high intake of carbohydrates.

In contrast, a low-carb high-fat diet delivers massive health benefits such as supporting weight loss, lowering cholesterol, reducing the risk for heart disease, lowering blood pressure, improving cognitive function, boosting energy levels and more. This high-fat approach also puts items like bacon, butter, avocado and other meats back on keto dieter's grocery shopping lists.

“The ‘Food Wheel’ introduced in 1984 and ‘Food Guide Pyramid’ introduced in 1992, both promoted 6-11 daily servings of grains and 2-4 daily servings of fruits, while cautioning Americans to use fats and oils ‘sparingly.’ According to the CDC, the average rate of obesity in adult Americans shot from 11.1% in 1990 to almost 37% in 2017. Coincidence? I think not. Every livestock farmer knows the secret to fattening cattle is to feed them grain. Dietary fat consumption doesn’t make us fat. Rather, excess carbohydrates, especially in the form of refined grains and sugars, are causing obesity and chronic disease nationwide. Flipping the traditional pyramid on its head correctly reflects the way we should be eating for optimal health and performance.”

How The Keto Diet Works

KETO IS A HIGH FAT, LOW-CARB DIET THAT TEACHES YOUR BODY TO BURN FAT FOR ENERGY.

To do keto, 75% of your daily calories should come from fat, 20% should come from protein, and 5% should come from carbs.

Eating only moderate amounts of protein, minimal amounts of carbs, and increasing your fat intake not only flips the traditional food pyramid on its head but also allows your body to enter and remain in this powerful fat-burning mode, known as ketosis.  That's why we've incorporated so many delicious keto foods into our downloadable keto food grocery list.

The Keto Diet Has Been Featured In:

"The excessive amount of carbohydrates that serve as the base of the outdated food pyramid have wildly contributed to our nation’s obesity epidemic. Humans have relied on a diet of fats and protein for millions of years. Modern hunter-gatherer tribes still rely on a diet of healthy fruits and vegetables and animal-based fats and protein, and do not suffer from the obesity and disease that plague our society. Agricultural carbohydrates are a recent introduction to our plates, and we are unable to handle them in large amounts. Why continue to force ourselves to eat foods that are detrimental to our health? Simply put, our bodies do not need processed foods, sugar, grains, and refined oils to thrive.”
