The Keto Diet, or Ketogenic Diet, can be undertaken by both men and women. This diet relies on a high intake of protein and fat such as meat, seafood, olive oil, eggs and small amounts of vegetables.
Women can experience a number of health benefits with this diet including hormonal balance, weight loss and even an anti-aging effect. A multivitamin and mineral should be taken to supplement the Ketogenic Diet.
As a woman, you might benefit from a ketogenic diet if you:
- have PCOS
- have irregular or absent periods
- have imbalanced thyroid hormones
- can’t lose or gain weight no matter what you try
- have terrible PMS
- have adrenal fatigue
- feel tired or unmotivated
- get hungry and need to always have a snack handy in between meals
- want to increase your performance in the gym
- have an autoimmune disease you would like to manage
