Ketogenic diets have gained popularity in recent years. People who practice the keto diet often, have eliminated carbohydrates in their diet or limited their intake to 20-50 grams per day.
Ketone bodies are produced by the liver when there is little or no carb in the body. These ketone bodies act as an energy source for all our organs, especially for the brain. Therefore, sources of good fats are included in the diet along with proteins, to prevent muscle loss. Our brain uses the maximum amount of energy and it cannot use fat directly for deriving energy. It should be either delivered through glucose or ketones.
When a person practices a keto diet, his/her body starts using fat as an energy source instead of carbohydrates. Some of the foods popular in the keto diet are fatty fish, whole eggs, cheese, avocados, chicken, yoghurt, nuts, olives, coconut and whey proteins. Steadfast Nutrition has launched an excellent product by the name Wheylo, for people aiming to maintain adequate protein content in their diet without gaining fat.
Wheylo consists of whey protein concentrate as the primary protein source, along with this, comes the benefits of coconut milk powder. Coconut is rich in medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) which are a source of good fats. Unlike long-chain fatty acids, coconuts contain medium-chain fats which are quickly taken up by the liver and converted to ketones for fuel. It also increases the metabolic rate and promotes weight loss.
Presence of whey protein concentrate in Wheylo helps meet protein needs and prevents muscle breakdown. Whey protein being rich in antioxidant - Glutathione, helps prevents cell damage and oxidative stress. Being a complete protein, it provides all the essential amino acids, without putting any digestive load on the stomach.
Wheylo is a must for people on a keto diet. It is a perfect combination of complete protein and healthy fats. Wheylo has been formulated without the addition of any artificial colours, preservatives, stabilisers and additives. People on a keto diet refrain from using carbohydrates, especially simple ones. Wheylo contains no added sugar and yet has a mildly sweet flavour due to the presence of Sucralose.
One single sachet of Wheylo provides 18.6 grams protein per 30 grams serving. Due to its ideal protein content, Wheylo can easily be consumed by sedentary people as well. If you are on a keto diet or a beginner, Wheylo is a must-try. With very little amount of carbs, Wheylo acts as an excellent companion to burn undesirable body fat without any muscle loss and improves metabolism.
