Exploring Popular Low Carb Diets: From Keto to Carnivore

Exploring Popular Low Carb Diets: From Keto to Carnivore

May 02, 2023Hannah Logan

Are you tired of feeling restricted and hungry on diets that just don't seem to work? As a mum of four, I completely understand the struggle of finding a sustainable diet that actually fits into your lifestyle! I also know first hand the positive impact that a low carb diet can have on one's health. After struggling with autoimmune conditions in my 20s, I finally found relief by following a keto diet, which inspired me to share my passion for low carb diets with others. By reducing your carbohydrate intake and increasing your intake of healthy fats and protein, you can achieve your health goals without feeling deprived or unsatisfied. Keto was what worked best for me - but let’s explore which low carb diet might work for you:

The Ketogenic Diet (or Keto for short)

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, moderate-protein, and very low-carb diet that aims to put the body into a state of ketosis, where it burns fat for energy instead of carbs. The diet typically involves consuming less than 50 grams of carbs per day, with the majority of calories coming from fats. With the high quantity of satiating fats, keto dieters can lose weight often without feeling hungry! This diet has also been shown to reduce blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity, which can benefit individuals with type 2 diabetes. From my experience, keto has been the easiest to stick to, with tonnes of novel and tasty foods on offer, like sweet treats and even pasta replacements!

The Carnivore Diet

The carnivore diet is a meat-based diet that involves eating only animal products and eliminates all plant-based foods, including grains, fruits, and vegetables. The diet is typically high in fat and protein, with very low carbohydrate intake.  While the carnivore diet may seem extreme to some, advocates of this diet claim that it can lead to rapid weight loss, improved mental clarity, and better digestion.

For those wanting to try the carnivore diet out, we have a range of products on offer to make it easier, like crackling, bacon jerky and biersticks!

The Paleo Diet

The paleo diet focuses on whole, unprocessed foods and eliminates grains, legumes, and processed foods, which tend to be high in carbs. As someone who follows a low carb diet, I personally love the emphasis on unprocessed foods that the paleo diet promotes. The diet is typically high in protein, with moderate fat intake and low carbohydrate intake. With a focus on protein from meat, fish, and eggs, as well as plenty of healthy vegetables, the paleo diet has been shown to not only aid in weight loss but also improve blood sugar levels and reduce inflammation. At Low Carb Haven, we offer a range of paleo products, such as this delicious paleo pancake mix. Check out all our paleo options here!

The Atkins Diet

The Atkins diet was one of the first low carb diets to gain popularity, and for good reason. The Atkins diet involves four phases, starting with a very low carb intake and gradually increasing to a level that's sustainable for the individual. By emphasising high protein foods and reducing carbs, this diet has been shown to be effective for weight loss, improving blood sugar levels, and reducing inflammation. We stock a range of official Atkins brand products and Atkins-friendly options - go check them out!
