Do bread and cookies taste good? Sure. But they also have a knack for causing weight gain. That’s because they are packed full of carbohydrates — our body’s natural go-to for creating energy.
And when we burn those carbs, our bodies naturally produce glucose and insulin.
The problem is that by using that glucose as our main energy-burning source, our body has nothing left to do with the leftover fat but store it.
It’s a vicious cycle — one that many try to break by turning to the ketogenic diet.
The ketogenic diet works by forcing our body into ketosis, the physiological state where our liver produces ketones to break down fat instead of carbs. (It’s what we do when our bodies are in survival mode.)
Getting your body to that point means you need to plan ahead with the right kind of foods. Experts recommend eating about 20-30 net carbs per day to fit in the guidelines of a ketogenic diet.
Diet-to-Go’s Carb30 plan offers restaurant-quality meals with no more than 30 net carbs per day, with the ability to substitute meals to be at 20 net carbs per day.
And the beauty of it?
We take all the thinking out of it. No need to worry about cutting carbs on your own or what you can and can’t eat.
We’re talking things like Chicken Soufflé and Prime Rib for dinner, Baked Chicken with Goat Cheese and Beef Casserole for lunch and Pork Chops and Western Omelet for breakfast.
Diet-to-Go’s Carb30 menu does it all for you. We make sure you get the proper balance of leafy green vegetables and protein-packed meats with tasty meals that will make it easy to stay on-track.
