When done right, a keto diet can help you feel energized and lose weight. In fact, a ketogenic diet was shown to increase overall health and lifespan of mice and has been linked to improving several mood disorders.  

It’s no wonder keto diets are seeing a resurgence in popularity. The ketogenic diet was originally developed in the 1920’s to treat children with epilepsy, and it evolved over time to help people manage weight and other health conditions. Now that more research is being done on the effects of the diet, more people are realizing the benefits and giving it a try.

There can be some side effects to going “keto.” Some people report feeling light-headed or having trouble thinking clearly, and others report having digestive issues, nausea and dizziness, or even and difficulty exercising.  But for the majority of people, keto can work.

Sticking to a new diet is never easy, and going keto is a big change for your body. Keto typically means cutting out carbohydrates, especially simple sugars and refined foods. Yet the average American gets nearly 60% of their calories from carbohydrates, and the vast majority of Americans’ carbohydrate sources are simple sugars and refined and processed foods. But going keto requires that only 5% of your daily calories come from carbohydrates, with the rest from fats and proteins. This is the exact opposite of a “typical” American diet, and it takes your body some time to adjust. 

So where does Rich Nuts fit in the keto world?  There are 4 main keto benefits:

  • Rich Nuts are sprouted so they’re easier on the stomach
  • Rich Nuts’ sprouting process “unlocks” nutrients by reducing the nut’s natural defenses
  • Rich Nuts are nutrient dense and full of good fats and proteins
  • Rich Nuts Brilliant Balsamic flavored sprouted walnuts are heart-healthy and keto qualified

Many people struggle to stay in compliance with the keto diet, especially in the first one to two months. Starting keto is a shock to the body, so the right snacks can help you stay on the keto pathway.  If you’re having trouble focusing or feeling light headed, try a handful of sprouted nuts - they’ll help you feel full and satisfied until your next meal.

Lots of people who go keto are also improving their fitness, but the change in food can make people feel less energized.  Because sprouted nuts are so nutrient dense and low carb, they can amplify the keto effect and help you power through your workout and recover quickly.
