What is the South Beach Diet Keto-Friendly Plan?

The South Beach Diet Keto-Friendly meal plan is designed to be a low carb, high fat dietary pattern consistent with a ketogenic diet.  The South Beach Diet Keto-Friendly meal plan is designed to deliver about 40 grams of “net carbs” (i.e., total carbs less dietary fiber and sugar alcohols) per day in Phase 1 and 50 grams of “net carbs” per day in Phase 2. Nutritional ketosis is a highly individualized biological process. While the South Beach Diet Keto-Friendly plan follows a low-carb, high-fat keto-friendly dietary pattern, it is not “strict keto” and therefore, it is not intended to allow individuals to achieve or maintain nutritional ketosis. The South Beach Diet does not believe nutritional ketosis needs to be obtained to experience many of the benefits of a ketogenic dietary pattern or low carb diet for weight loss and overall health and wellness.  More information about the South Beach Diet Keto-Friendly plan, including meal plans, articles and keto-friendly recipes can be found on the Palm here >
