What is Keto 2.0?

Keto 2.0 addresses the concern of clinicians who have seen increased LDL levels because of the high animal saturated fat intake. The new version allows plant-based healthier oils containing olive and peanut and plant-based high fat foods like nuts, seeds, avocado, and healthier meat options like fish.

Fibre has been missing from the original diet, but with Keto 2.0, high fibre and low net carbs from plant based foods create more space for variety and still remaining low carb.

This version is supposed to benefit women dealing with hormonal imbalance. Probably the healthy plant based fats and fibre, which are beneficial for the body also have a positive impact on hormones.

Whether the new version - Keto 2.0 - will be as effective as the original version remains to be seen; but it is definitely healthier and more sustainable.
