When first starting keto, it may be helpful to get a better understanding on your macro requirements for your body type.
The three main macronutrients that pertain to a keto diet are fats, proteins, and carbohydrates.
Fats are 90% ketogenic and 10% anti-ketogenic, due to the small amount of glucose (sugar) that is released in the conversion of triglycerides into our energy.
Proteins are approximately 46% ketogenic and 58% anti-ketogenic since insulin levels usually rise in response to the absorption of specific amino acids. Insulin indirectly decreases each of our own ketone production.
Carbohydrates are 100% anti-ketogenic, as they raise both blood glucose and insulin.
