In this video, we’re going to talk about why you aren’t what you eat if you’re on keto.

You’ve probably heard the expression, “you are what you eat.” But when you’re in ketosis, your body burns the fat that you consume.

A study compared a high-fat, low-carb diet to a low-fat, high-carb diet to evaluate how much saturated fat was in the bloodstream on each diet.

Many people think that if you increase your dietary fat that you’ll load up your arteries with fat. Interestingly, this isn’t what happens.

Those who consumed the least about of fat and the most amount of carbs had the highest levels of saturated fat in their bloodstream.

If you’re scared of trying Healthy Keto because of increased health risks due to fat in your bloodstream, this should help put your mind at ease.

The low-carb, high-fat group had three times more fat in their diet—yet their bloodstream contained much less fat. Why?

Carbohydrates convert into saturated fat. This saturated fat then gets stored in the body.

When your carbohydrates are high, your body doesn’t burn off saturated fats.

On keto, your body runs on fat, which means less of it is stored in the fat cells.

If your carbohydrate intake is too high, you have to watch out for your saturated fat intake. This typically isn’t an issue on Healthy Keto because your body immediately begins using the fat as fuel.
