The Green keto is designed for the following individuals ( but also suitable if you want to lose weight, gain more energy and live a little healthier)
- Those with risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD)
- Those with risk factors for conditions such as metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes (T2D)both
- Those with CVD (e.g., high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and elevated blood fats)
- Those with metabolic syndrome (e.g., high blood sugar, increased belly fat)
Fortunately, diet and lifestyle interventions are effective in preventing and treating all of these conditions. Some people may question why the same food plan is suggested to treat both cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. While they may seem to be different types of conditions, cardiovascular and metabolic dysfunctions share similar causes, including inflammation, insulin resistance, and stress.
This food plan is also called “cardiometabolic” or as I call it – Green Keto. It allows people to use food medicinally to treat the common underlying causes.
Modified Mediterranean Approach:
The traditional Mediterranean diet first attracted interest when
it became apparent that people living on the Greek island of Crete had a greatly reduced risk of cardiovascular disease . Since then, it has become perhaps the most well-known, well-studied diet for CVD, metabolic syndrome, and Type 2 diabetes.
While the Mediterranean region comprises 16 different countries, people in these countries tend to eat a similar diet: whole, unprocessed foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, legumes, dairy, extra virgin olive oil, spices, modest amounts of poultry, fish and red meat, and red wine.
It is the combination of all these foods, rather than the consumption of one of these foods in isolation, that is responsible for the cardiovascular and metabolic benefits of this way of eating.
A review of 50 studies on the Mediterranean diet reported that this way of eating favorably changes parameters of metabolic syndrome such as waist circumference, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, triglycerides, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, and glucose.
In the cookbook ” Green keto step by step” you find Vegged up keto recipes which is inspired by the Mediterranean diet, but the food there can be a trigger for allergies, high GI ( glycemic index ) is removed. Because it stabilizes blood sugar and reduces stress hormones which affects blood pressure and lack of weight loss
The key is to select whole, fresh, unprocessed foods rather than to buy pre-packaged foods that have been manufactured to be convenient.This is truly one of the most important takeaways of the Mediterranean diet and I my Green keto
