Keto Diet for Vegans

Keto Diet for Vegans

Considering the co-existence of animals along with humans, there are many in this world, who does not eat meat. As per the current situations, the Glucose level in the human body is also an overriding factor than anything else, which is common in people all over the world.

If someone is bothered with the above mentioned 2 factors, that person should seriously listen to the Vegan-Keto diet. Let us analyze it part by part. The vegan diet involves eating only the Vegetarian food. A vegetarian diet includes Cereals, Grains, Peas, Nuts, Leafy vegetables, fruits, Mushrooms etc.

Humans have a more tendency to have chewy food and hence the meats have gained great popularity among the foodies. This reason adds Mushroom to the vegetarian diet and has been included in a Vegan diet.

But going completely into Vegan diet may effect in increased glucose content in the body as the main energy providers, the cereals constitute a high level of carbohydrates which are subsequently converted into glucose and then with the blood they reach at different parts of the human physical body including the brain. This glucose containing energy is being consumed for most of the activities.

The current era being the time of comfort, the entire world even including the tribes is going behind comfort in their life. Commonly everyone has a notion that the comfort is primarily concerned with the Physical comfort only.

But comfort should finally aim at being comfortable in many situations, simply being ‘Flexible’ for any harsh situations.

Present world being fonder on physical comfort, this much glucose is not being consumed effectively and is being piled up in the blood without proper digestion and finally comes out as tiredness and tension with a simple definition: ‘Diabetes’

As a result, going completely behind the Vegan diet may help us in ending with dissatisfaction. Here is a better solution for the system of digestion.

The ‘Keto–Vegan’ diet contains High fat, adequate protein, and low carbohydrate intakes. The energy provided by carbohydrate in a High – Carb diet can be compensated in the Keto-Vegan diet. The high fat containing foods supply enough fats which are being converted to energy providing molecules as Ketones. Good fats from different sources can be used to compensate the energy source hence.

There is a number of solutions for the questions that come to you. I may list them below as well. People with conditions like obesity, type 2 diabetes, type 1 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and epilepsy can be helped tremendously by the ketogenic diet, while a vegan diet doesn’t help nearly as much.
