Have you been thinking about doing “Keto” but not sure how to do it the right way? Your friends who are on Keto tell you about all the crap they are allowed to eat, and you think, that can’t be healthy. There has to be a better way.
Keto Life with Matt shows that you can eat real food, have more energy, increase mental clarity, and lose weight.
Google searches for “ketogenic diet” are at an all-time high. The stream of keto-related emails, ads, and sales pages is almost relentless but many of them only touch the surface or are just trying to sell you something.
What is Keto?
The “keto” diet is any extremely low carbohydrate diet ( 10-20 grams) that forces the body into a state of ketosis. When Ketosis occurs molecules called ketones build up in their bloodstream.
What are Ketones?
“Ketones are chemicals your liver makes. You produce them when you don’t have enough insulin in your body to turn sugar (or glucose) into energy. You need another source, so your body uses fat instead.”
In my conversation with life long friend Matt Lucchetti, a trained chef and Keto enthusiast we talk about how to Eat Real Food (one of the pillars of success at Living Healthy List), gain energy, mental clarity, and lose weight on Keto.
To understand ketogenic diets, ie keto it’s important to understand the conditions that promote ketosis and how your body uses fatty acids for energy.
Matt uses the concept of a campfire and the three types of fuel that represent carbohydrate, protein, and fat. It’s explained here.
Keto is strict and obviously removes full food groups from your diet. Which on the one hand makes it simpler however to stay in ketosis you have to do it right. We recommend you talk to your doctor before starting any new diet or lifestyle program.
Every one of us is different and will react differently to Keto. What’works for one person can be a disaster for another.
At Living Healthy List the first pillar of success is Eat Real Food. We don’t recommend one particular lifestyle or diet program because everyone’s needs and situations are different. Instead, we provide you with the information and resources you need to make an informed decision. Check out the nutrition chart here.

The concept of Living Healthy List.com came out of a very real problem. In my personal experience, I found that it is impossible to get honest, reliable, unbiased, and expert information about health and wellness on the internet. There’s too much information, misleading material, and a lack of true evidence-based health and wellness data.
As an authentic connector, inspirational thought leader I am determined to provide Living Healthy List readers with honest, reliable, research-backed content that can be implemented in real life to help you create a healthy, happy life you are working hard to find so you can grow, relax and transform into the person you always dreamed of being!
