Keto Dinner Recipes

Finding keto recipes that aren’t chicken can sometimes be a challenge. Try one of these non-chicken keto dinner recipes - you won’t be disappointed.

Maintain adequate protein intake

Achieving ketosis requires a protein intake that’s adequate but not excessive.The classic ketogenic diet used in people with epilepsy restricts both carbs and protein to maximize ketone levels.The same diet may also be beneficial for people with cancer, as it may limit tumor growth (32, 33).However, for most people, drastically cutting their protein intake to increase ketone production isn’t a healthy practice.First, it’s important to consume enough protein to supply the liver with amino acids that can be used for gluconeogenesis, or making glucose (34Trusted Source).In this process, your liver provides glucose for the few cells and organs in your body that can’t use ketones as fuel, such as your red blood cells and portions of your kidneys and brain (35Trusted Source).Second, protein intake should be high enough to maintain muscle mass when carb intake is low, especially during weight loss.Although losing weight typically results in the loss of both muscle and fat, consuming sufficient amounts of protein on a very low carb ketogenic diet can help preserve muscle mass (36).Several studies have shown that the preservation of muscle mass and physical performance is maximized when protein intake is in the range of 0.55–0.77 grams per pound (1.2–1.7 grams per kilogram) of lean mass (21Trusted Source).A daily protein intake of 0.45–0.68 grams per pound (1–1.5 grams per kilogram) will help you maintain lean mass while losing weight (23).In weight loss studies, very low carb diets with protein intake within this range have been found to induce and maintain ketosis (21Trusted Source, 23, 37Trusted Source).In one study in 17 men with obesity, following a ketogenic diet providing 30% of calories from protein for 4 weeks led to blood ketone levels of 1.52 mmol/L, on average. This is well within the 0.5–3 mmol/L range of nutritional ketosis (37Trusted Source).To calculate your protein needs on a ketogenic diet, multiply your ideal body weight in pounds by 0.55–0.77 (1.2–1.7 in kilograms). For example, if your ideal body weight is 130 pounds (59 kg), your protein intake should be 71–100 grams.
