Keto dieting has become one of the most popular dieting methods in the last few years. People doing keto diets have produced some rather incredible results through their journey. Is Beef Chief Jerky something you can eat while on a keto diet? Let's dive into it...
What is keto?
Keto, otherwise known as Ketosis dieting, is a diet that is high in protein and fats while being extremely low (almost negligible) in carbohydrates. It takes your body about 7-11 days to reach a state of ketosis. Once in ketosis, your body essentially switches up its primary source of energy to ketones, rather than glycogen (a source of energy derived from carbohydrates).
By switching energy sources, keto-dieters have been able to lose large amounts of weight in a short time, and studies have shown that keto dieting is extremely healthy for the body (in short bursts/periods of time).
Whilst in a state of ketosis, the user must be extremely careful with what foods he/she ingests, as a small amount of carbohydrates is enough to throw the body out of ketosis, and basically negate all the benefits that some with a keto diet.
