So I am apart of another Keto group on facebook and there seems to be this BIG debate on what constitutes Keto. Here is the arguement…
“Keto foods are about ingridents regardless of how low in Net carbs they are.Bad ingridents but low net carbs still equal non-Keto food”
“There is no such thing as Keto or Non- Keto foods. Every food has a Net carb count and its whether it fits your macros for the day.”
To give an example… there is an ongoing debate about a certain tortilla wrap out there. The Net carb count is only 3 grams for 1 tortilla, thus the group who believes in “if it fits your macros,” gladly indulge. BUT the group who believe its all about ingredients that make it Keto or non Keto are like “heck no! its gotta go!” and they think that because the tortillas contain whole wheat flour amongst other ingredients.
I recognize that one main factor seems to bias one side in particular…so lets take out that factor. Many do Keto because they want to reduce systematic inflammation or reduce symptoms of an illness… so lets take it out of the equation altogether. Lets imagine that the person is a completely healthy yet overweight person who is only looking to lose weight. They arent trying to eat healthier per se… they just want to lose the extra weight.
So… what is everyone thoughts?
