Difference between Keto and Paleo Bakery in San Antonio
I have been getting a lot of calls about Paleo and Keto products for our bakery in San Antonio.
So, I went out to do my research and here is what I found:
What is Keto Diet?
The primary goal of this type of diet is to put your body into a state of ketosis, which is when your body uses fat instead of carbohydrates as its primary energy source. When your body enters ketosis, fat travels to the liver and makes an acid called ketones, which enter your bloodstream and are converted into energy.
Unlike Paleo, Keto severely limits carbs and eliminates fruit and some starchy vegetables. For your body to enter ketosis, a good percentage of your calories (generally, somewhere between 60-80%, according to keto experts) needs to come from fats.
The extremely low level of carbs on the Keto Diet can cause what’s known as the keto flu, which causes headaches, nausea, muscle cramping, and fatigue. Like the Paleo Diet, these unpleasant side effects generally subside after a few weeks. Drinking plenty of water and getting a full night’s sleep should help.
This diet will help you lose more weight in a small amount of time.
What is Paleo Diet?
The Paleo Diet focuses on foods that are high in protein and rich with fiber. There’s a strong emphasis on meat, fruits, and vegetables — basically taking us back to the beginning of mankind.
Although Paleo is not strictly low carb, eliminating processed foods makes it lower in carbohydrates than the average American diet. Most of your carbs will come from fruits and vegetables on this plan.
The Paleo Diet: It’s common to feel lethargic as your body adjusts to the low-carb Paleo Diet. However, your energy levels will typically be restored within a few weeks.
Now for the biggest question, which diet is better? I believe one should follow Keto diet for a few weeks to a couple of months, to lose weight and get down to an ideal weight and then move to Paleo diet and of course include our Paleo options from our bakery!
I believe (and I am not a dietitian and guessing based on my readings) if we stick to Paleo diet then it will help us in the long run!
We have cakes, cupcakes and other desserts that suit both Paleo and Keto diets. This is the advantage of having a home bakery in San Antonio, as we can adapt to your making a Pale Bakery or Keto Bakery or Vegan Bakery or a combination PEGAN Bakery!
