Keto. Love it or not, we all know it’s a diet that can help with weight loss, but what really makes it our new go-to diet? 

We’ve launched a NEW range of keto shakes to complement our existing keto-friendly range. Tasty, full of flavour, and perfect for keto, our new shakes are our latest diet innovation.  

Intrigued? Let’s find out more… 

What is keto?  

The name ‘keto’ comes from the process our bodies enter when we cut down on carbs and up our intake of fat. When we eat a diet that is low in carbs, our body enters a state known as ‘ketosis’ whereby the excess fats in your body are burned for energy. To induce ketosis, a maximum of 20-50g of carbohydrate can be consumed alongside 2000 calories daily (1). 

How does keto work?

Ketosis occurs when the body turns to its fat stores to produce energy, rather than the bodies’ primary source of glucose. When carbs and sugar are significantly reduced, and protein and fat intake is increased, the body creates energy from burning the fat stored.   

Carbohydrates and sugary foods both contain glucose, so reducing them will mean your body is relying on fat reserve to keep your energy levels up. 

Enjoy Keto, the exante way…

If you’re interested in following a Keto lifestyle, look no further! We have a NEW range of keto shakes to complement our keto-friendly products. That means we have everything you need to enjoy a high fat and low carb lifestyle, without compromising on taste. 

Our full Keto and Keto-friendly range includes: 

Prebiotic Keto Shakes 

Keto Friendly Products

Is exante Keto right for me?

Our Keto products and guidelines mean that a keto lifestyle has never been tastier. Unlike traditional diet methods, keto is not always a calorie-controlled diet. Instead, the focus is on macronutrient split with less restriction on how many products and calories you consume per day. The main thing to remember is your ratio of protein, fats, carbs and sugars. We recommend that 65-70% of your calories are consumed from fats, and less than 10% coming from carbohydrates.

What’s the difference between Keto and Meal Replacement shakes?

Our meal replacement products are for following a calorie deficit plan, meaning they are high protein, fibre and contain 27 vitamins and minerals. Our Keto shakes are designed for a keto diet only, as they are sugar-free (as consumed) high in prebiotic gut-friendly fibre, contain 7g MCT coconut and up to 15g healthy fats. For best results, we’d recommend enjoying these shakes on a keto diet. However the nutritional information is on the website should you want to incorporate them into your calorie controlled plan.

What’s the difference between keto and keto-friendly?

Unlike our keto-friendly range, which can be used when following all our plans (including our weight loss and maintenance plans), we have developed our new keto shakes specifically for people who are on a keto diet. So, if you are not following a keto or low carb diet, you might want to try our meal replacement range instead. 

Why we love keto…

Keto is a great way to diet without needing to cut back on your calorie intake. While it’s important to keep your calorie intake to a reasonable level, there’s definitely a lot more flexibility with the amount you can eat while still losing weight (1). 

It’s not just this reason that we LOVE keto, it’s also great for increasing the healthy fats in your body. Since you’re concentrating your efforts on eating healthier fats, you’ll be a lot more health-conscious and, in turn, will give your body just what it needs!                                                                                     

Does keto work?

No matter what you think about keto, it is a diet plan that works- but that doesn’t always make it easy. While you’re able to eat without a calorie restriction, keto diets can have you craving carbohydrates and experiencing ‘keto flu’ for the first few days while your body adjusts (1).  

If you’re ready to take the leap into keto, our shakes are the perfect place to start. Shop our new shakes and keto-friendly range today and kickstart your diet!
