Whether or not you follow a ketogenic diet, we have the snack for you! This decadent chocolate pudding will satisfy any sweet tooth while keeping you on track to reach ketosis.In case you’re not familiar, the ketogenic diet is a whole foods plan in which you eat predominantly fat (70-75% of calories consumed), a moderate amount of protein (20-25% of calories consumed), and very little, if any, carbohydrates (0-5% of calories consumed). The goal is to reach a state of ketosis in which the body shifts from relying on glucose for its main source of fuel to utilizing fat. In a state of ketosis, blood sugar and insulin levels go down and the liver produces ketones to fuel the body. The ketogenic diet boasts benefits such as weight loss, increased energy, mental acuity, and reduced inflammation and has been beneficial in treating cancer, diabetes and epilepsy.
