If you’re eating a low carb keto diet, chances are you probably already understand that your main source of energy should come from fat. A true Ketogenic diet’s macros looks something like this, 75% fat 20% protein and 5% carbs. But let’s face it, adding high fat snacks can prove to be a little tricky. This is where fat bombs come to the rescue. My Low Carb LCHF Cheesecake Fat Bombs come especially handy when you just need a little something to tie you over or to help reduce sugar cravings.
Raise Ketones Levels With Fat Bombs
Fat bombs help raise your ketone levels. When your body burns fat for fuel instead of glucose, it’s important to have enough dietary fat in your diet. Think of fat bombs as a tool to fan the ketone flames. If you don’t have enough fat to fuel your metabolism you can experience a stall or decrease in ketone levels.
High Fat High Carbs A Big Mistake
It should be noted that you want to include fat bombs to your diet if you are also reducing your carbs. Adding more dietary fat to diet that is high in bad carbs spells disaster. Why? Because high fat and high carbs can never co-exsist, when joined they cause havoc in the body.
You see, it’s the carbs that make your body store the fat. Dietary fat alone is not the culprit but when combined you will not gain the benefits of burning fat for fuel. Instead you will find yourself packing on few extra unwanted pounds.
Stay Satiated On Keto Diet
When I make my fat bombs I keep them in the freezer. My fat bomb recipes all include the addition of coconut oil and when coconut oil is allowed to come to room temperature it melts. So keeping them in the freezer just makes sense.
Low Carb LCHF Cheesecake Fat Bombs make the perfect snack when I need a little something for extra energy. They are especially great as pre-workout treat. Due keep in mind that fat bombs are not a license to binge. I wouldn’t have more than two a day because they are also high in calories.
Do Calories Even Matter?
There are two camps when it comes to counting calories in a ketogenic diet. Some who track every macro and others who simply let their hunger guide them. I recommend you test what works best for you.
I am somewhere in-between on this topic. The truth is, you need to see how your body reacts, since everyone is different. We don’t count our macros at home and it’s worked for us. Randy lost over 85 pounds and today he is at his goal weight and we never counted calories. He did count his carbs and keeps them within the 20-30 net carb range.
Test For Yourselves
Since I am happy with my weight and eat this way for the health benefits, I also don’t stress about my macros and simply eat when hungry and don’t when not. However, if any weight starts to creep up I begin to keep an eye out. Like I said, do what works for you.
Finally, we just never want our eating to become a chore. It’s a lifestyle for us, so it’s important we keep things simple. Which is why recipes like my Low Carb LCHF Cheesecake Fat Bombs are loved in our low carb keto community.
