|Keto Ice Cream…|
Is it the next diet breakthrough to help people lose weight, drop body fat and get fit, or just a ‘too good to be true’ marketing scam?
Never seen before….Watch this short video of me eating Ice Cream!
|Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?|
The science behind Keto or Ketosis is a process that happens when your body doesn’t have enough carbohydrates to burn for energy.
Instead, it burns fat and makes things called ketones, which it can use for fuel.
Hence, you’ll drop body fat.
|Instead of taking the label marketing for their word, I decided to measure it against my blood glucose.|
First, I established a baseline.
|Then I ate one-serving of Halo Top Keto Ice cream.|
1-serving = 2/3 of a cup.
|I then recorded my glucose in stages after I ate the Keto Ice Cream.|
You’ll notice I spike at 20-minutes after I ate the Keto Ice Cream.
I remained elevated for 40-min post-prandial (after eating) as well.
I began to drop glucose 50-minutes post-prandial.
I personally try not to exceed 110mg/dl glucose for low insulin and to promote ketosis.
For many clients, I recommend staying under 120mg/dl to burn fat.
|Although the front label is marketed as ‘Keto-friendly’ when put to the test, it did not perform Keto Friendly.|
In fact, it was Keto Unfriendly.
The reason why is because it is loaded with carbs and sugar alcohols.
Both of these ingredients will increase blood glucose and store fat.
By the way, is this really surprising?
Did you think this ice cream was made out of chicken?
Furthermore, the taste was not as good as Panda Paws!
My message is Keto Ice Cream for me has tested to increase blood glucose too much for fat loss.
In fact, I’ll gain fat.
Instead, as a ‘cheat’ try it or opt for the real ice cream one day per week on your “Free Day!”
Adding 1-tbs of MCT Oil in your morning coffee can help lower blood glucose 10-15mg/dl and help to get you into ketosis.
