20 Best Keto Seafood Recipes Done In 20 Minutes

There’s no stopping the keto diet, especially now that New Year’s resolution season is in full swing. If you’ve decided to commit to the high-fat, very-low-carb plan after hearing about its touted perks — a sharper memory, less brain fog, more energy, stabilized blood sugar, or most common, quick weight loss — there are a few things you need to know first. One of those is that seafood provides some great Keto Seafood Recipes.

Because it lacks carbohydrates, Keto Seafood Recipes are diet rich in proteins It typically includes plenty of meats, eggs, processed meats, sausages, cheeses, fish, nuts, butter, oils, seeds, and fibrous vegetables. Because it is so restrictive, it is really hard to follow in the long run. Carbohydrates normally account for at least 50% of the typical American diet.

One of the main criticisms of this diet is that many people tend to eat too much protein and poor-quality fats from processed foods, with very few fruits and vegetables. Patients with kidney disease need to be cautious because this diet could worsen their condition. Additionally, some patients may feel a little tired in the beginning, while some may have bad breath, nausea, vomiting, constipation, and sleep problems.

The Best Seafood for the Keto Diet

All seafood is good including shellfish. The ways to prepare Keto Seafood Recipes are endless. It is important to eat wild fish as opposed to farmed fish. Most seafood is high in omega 3 fatty acids, which have a marked impact on your general health, but especially on the health of your cardiovascular system. They lower the risk of heart disease & stroke as well as helping to reduce triglycerides levels, lower blood pressure as well as raising HDL (the “good”) cholesterol levels.

Salmon as long as they are the wild variety and not farmed are especially good because they contain fats that are high in Omega 3’s. King salmon contain the highest levels of omega 3’s. Canned Salmon contains less Omega 3 fats than fresh, but it is still high in nutrients. Smoked Salmon is also good and eaten with eggs for breakfast is an excellent Keto option!

5 Fast Facts About Some Keto Seafood Recipes

“Most people’s expectations are to lose weight with this diet. However, whether this is a sustainable strategy has yet to be determined. I advocate for whole health and taking care of all aspects of it, not just dropping weight,” says Colin Zhu, DO, a family physician who specializes in lifestyle medicine.

1. Burning Fat

On most diets, the body uses glucose as its primary energy source. The ketogenic diet essentially forces the body to use fat as its main source of energy instead. It does this by mimicking a state of starvation where the body breaks down fat stores and converts them into ketones through a biochemical process called ketosis.

2. Reaching Ketosis

Generally speaking, the ketogenic diet is composed of 70-75 percent fat, 20-25 percent protein, and 5-10 percent carbohydrates. This strict formula is the key to ensuring a person enters the metabolic state of ketosis, which isn’t necessarily easy. In fact, reaching and maintaining ketosis can be exceptionally challenging for many people and requires diligence and planning.

Newbies to the keto diet may experience symptoms such as dizziness, headaches, brain fog, nausea, and irritability, says Dr. Zhu. This is sometimes referred to as “the keto flu.” These side effects generally go away after several weeks once someone becomes “keto-adapted.”

3. Nuts and Bolts

Foods to be limited on the ketogenic diet include whole grains; beans and legumes; starchy vegetables like yams and potatoes; high-carbohydrate fruits like apples, oranges, and bananas; alcohol; sugar; and low-fat dairy products. The keto diet does promote eating meat from various sources, as well as eggs, fish, avocados, coconut and olive oils, and non-starchy vegetables.

4. The Good

Beyond weight loss, the ketogenic diet has been in use for conditions like epilepsy since the 1920s and obesity treatment since the 1960s.“ The keto diet really alters energy metabolism in the brain, so that’s why it’s thought to stabilize the functions of the neurons exposed to seizures in people with epilepsy,” says Junella Chin, DO, who uses the keto diet as a tool for treating children with intractable epilepsy in her integrative medical practice. “It helps children with seizures decrease their episodes and shorten their recovery time from seizures.”

The keto diet has also been implicated for therapeutic use in chronic diseases such as heart disease, neurological conditions, polycystic ovary syndrome, and cancer. There’s also limited evidence that insulin sensitivity improves on the diet, which bodes well for managing diabetes.

5. The Bad

The downside of a ketogenic diet is that there is no well-established evidence to support its sustainability on a long-term basis, and further well-controlled trials are recommended, says Dr. Zhu. Recent research published by The Lancet found that restricting carbs and replacing them with animal-based protein and fat could lead to a shorter lifespan.

For children with epilepsy, the biggest challenge of the keto diet is compliance, says Dr. Chin. “We struggle with compliance with kids and then parents because, of course, parents need to be on board too. And constipation can be a really big side effect that deters compliance.”

1 Easy Manhattan Clam Chowder Recipe

Easy Keto Manhattan Clam Chowder Recipe
This Keto Seafood Recipes dis is perfectly hearty and easy Manhattan Clam Chowder recipe uses celery root instead of potatoes to keep it flavorful and low carb. Keep yourself warm this season with this fabulous gourmet soup. There’s much controversy surrounding Manhattan clam chowder; people either love it or hate it. I personally love it. Those who don’t care for it often prefer New England style clam chowder, which is a cream soup consisting of clams, milk, and potatoes. As I previously said I love Manhattan clam chowder because it’s nice tomatoey broth tickles my Italian heritage and its the ease of preparation makes it perfect for weeknight dinner-time. Although I say it’s tomato-based broth appeals to the 2-drops of Italian in me, I did some sleuthing and discovered that this shellfish soup was most likely developed by Portuguese immigrants who were already preparing tomato-based fish stew at home. Portuguese fish stew anyone?
