Keto Fit: Getting Started Without Doing the Maths

Keto Fit: Getting Started Without Doing the Maths

The ketogenic diet has gained immense popularity mostly for its ability to promote weight loss, through fat burning and fighting sugar cravings while supporting healthy blood sugar levels. A ketogenic diet is high fat, moderate protein, and low carb. It’s specifically designed to deliver around 70% of calories from healthy fats, with protein contributing 20% of calories, and the remaining 10% coming from low-sugar carbs.

 

By restricting carbs to about 30g – 50g per day, you’re re-programming your body to burn stored fats for energy. The result is that you enter a state of “ketosis” and become a fat-burning machine rather than a sugar-burning machine. In order to remain in the state of “ketosis” and maintain the fat burning, you need to stay on a keto diet.

 

The Keto Fit Weight Loss Shake is an ideal way to get started on a keto diet and is designed for weight loss. We’ve made it easy for everyone to accomplish without doing any math, no counting calories or macronutrients every day.

 

 

Fat source—organic grass-fed butter powder

 

The primary ingredient in Keto Fit is our Organic Grass Fed Butter Powder. This delicious golden butter comes from our organic farmers in New Zealand. Its golden color indicates that it’s rich in beta-carotene and other beneficial fat-soluble nutrients—it’s the perfect fuel source for a ketogenic diet.

 

Our Organic Grass Fed Butter not only provides fat-soluble vitamins, and a host of natural minerals, but it also contains Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) which has been shown to increase lean body mass, reduce body fat mass, and improve overall body composition in overweight individuals.

 

Truly grass-fed whey

 

Our whey is Certified “Truly Grass Fed” as cows roam on lush nutritious grass, unique to Ireland’s wet climate year-round. They never receive commercial feed, and only receive cut grass silage when calving. Truly Grass Fed Whey is free of hormones such as rBST, rBGH and is also antibiotic-free, un-denatured, cold-pressed and micro-filtered. We are also very proud that this is the only Non-GMO Project Verified Whey.

 

We specifically-chose our Truly Grass Fed Irish Whey Isolate as the protein source for our Keto Fit Weight Loss Shake because it’s extremely high in an amino acid called cysteine, a precursor to our body’s master antioxidant called glutathione. The isolate form of protein greatly reduces lactose for those who struggle digesting this milk sugar and it also greatly reduces the carbohydrate content.

 

Ten grams of keto protein powder is the perfect amount per serving to keep you full and satiated while staying within the ketogenic guidelines of 70% fat, 20% protein and 10% carbohydrates.

 

Weight loss blend

 

Our weight loss blend contains clinically-studied weight loss activators. The first ingredient in this blend is Organic Svetol, which is a naturally-decaffeinated green coffee bean extract. We added it at a studied dosage of 450mg, which has been shown to support weight loss by slowing uptake of intestinal glucose and regulating blood sugar levels. No jitters, just metabolic benefits. More recently, peer-reviewed science has shown it to have lipolytic activity—meaning it also breaks down fat in the body.

 

Also included is our Organic Coffeeberry Whole Coffee Fruit Extract. This blend provides 50mg of caffeine, which is just a bit less than a standard cup of coffee. Caffeine is a powerful ingredient that can release fat stores, increase metabolism and encourage the body to utilize ketones as a fuel source. This makes Keto Fit the perfect shake for breakfast, a meal replacement or even as a pre-workout.

 

The third ingredient in our weight loss blend is Organic Ashwagandha. Ashwagandha is an adaptogen that helps the body adapt to stress. Clinical studies have shown Ashwagandha effective for regulating cortisol (stress hormone) in the body. We added a clinical dose of Ashwagandha to Keto Fit to help to fight stress cravings for sugar and carbs.

Dr. Formulated Keto Fit is Certified Keto and Certified Paleo Friendly by the Paleo Foundation. This third-party certification makes it easy for people to know that it’s approved for a Keto diet and has a carbohydrate content of 10% or less.

Keto fit: clean & simple

 

Available in two delicious organic flavors—vanilla and chocolate— Dr. Formulated Keto Fit is designed to be mixed with just water, and as the label says—No Math, Just Mix. It makes a perfect smoothie for breakfast, or it can be used as a meal replacement delivering the ideal ratio of macronutrients 70/20/10 for a keto diet, along with clinically studied ingredients to support weight loss.
