Ever heard people talk about losing weight on dieting??? or losing weight while eating healthy???
They are probably talking about the keto diet???
People on a Keto diet can consume lots of food on a daily basis but still end up losing weight like somebody who is starving especially those who are on a keto diet and consuming our weight loss tea or doing work out at the gym
Combining the Cameroon Keto diet and with our 14 days weight loss tea, yield extremely fast weight loss result hence we often advice our customers who are on a 14 days weight loss journey with our weight loss/slimming tea to switch to the ketonic diet while on the weight loss journey to double their calorie loss.
But what is Cameroon keto diet all about???
A keto or ketogenic diet is simply a very low-carbohydrate diet.
In other words, Keto (Ketogenic) dieting is all about consuming foods which contains little to no carbohydrate.
People who are on a Keto diet consume lots of fats, the regular amount of protein and little to no carbohydrates.
Simply put, a Cameroon keto diet is a meal that consists of 70% fats, 25% protein and only 5% carbohydrates.
Somebody may likely want to ask, how does consuming food that contains little or no carbohydrate (carbs) causes someone to lose weight???
For those of you who don’t know, Carbohydrate (carbs) is a hindrance to our weight loss journey and this is because the body primarily uses the carbs that we consume on a daily basis for energy instead of the stored fat in our body.
As we all know, fat is a reserve of calories stored in the body to be used for energy when need be.
Whenever we engage in weight loss exercises at the gym or at home, we do so with the hope that the stored fat in our body would be broken down in to fuel (energy) thereby causing us to lose weight…but this is not often the case.
Most of the times when we engage in physical exercises or work out, our body instead uses the carbohydrate that we have freshly consume, for energy instead of burning the stored fat in our body for fuel (energy).
In other words, the body uses carbs as the primary source of energy and the stored fat in our body as the secondary source of energy.
The body will only start burning the stored fat in your body for fuel (energy) only after you have run out of carbs.
So it is therefore recommended to cut down on carbohydrates to force your body to use the stored energy (fat) in your body thereby causing you to lose weight. Some Cameroon-based starchy (carbs) foods include: Garri, yam, fufu, miondo, cassava, rice, bread, millet, potatoes, plantains, pounded cocoyam, cocoyam etc
Somebody may likely want to ask, but why does the body relies so much on carbs for energy instead of the stored fat in our body???
This is because carbs can easily be converted to energy than the stored fat in our body.
When our body is in need of energy, the carbs we have consumed is converted to glucose and the glucose is released to the blood stream as energy.
Glucose (from the carbs you consume on a daily basis) is the easiest molecule for your body to convert and use as energy hence it will be chosen over any other energy source in your body.
Since the glucose (from carbs) is being used as a primary energy, your fats are not needed for energy and therefore remain the same.
So typically on a normal, higher carbohydrate diet, the body will use glucose as the main form of energy.
For us to cause the body to start using the stored fat for fuel so that we can lose weight, we need to consume less carbohydrate or completely starve ourselves of Carbohydrate while working out or consuming our weight loss tea.
By lowering the intake of carbs, the body is induced into a metabolic state known as ketosis and during Ketosis, your body will start burning fat for energy instead of carbs and this result to weight loss.
Ketosis is a natural process the body initiates to help us survive when food intake is low. During this state, the body produce ketones, which are produced from the breakdown of fats in the liver.
The end goal of a properly maintained keto diet is to force your body into this metabolic state. We don’t do this through starvation of calories but starvation of carbohydrates.
Our bodies are incredibly adaptive to what you put into it – when you overload it with fats and take away carbohydrates, it will begin to burn ketones (fats) as the primary energy source causing you to lose weight.
Optimal ketone levels offer many health, weight loss, physical and mental performance benefits.
Keto dieting shouldn’t be done for a very long period of time as there is a danger to such diet, because if you take it to the extreme or do it for too long, you can go right past ketosis and straight into ketoacidosis, which is very harmful to your health. For this reason, you need to have a proper keto meal plan.
Like i mentioned earlier, a good Cameroon Keto meal plan consists of 70% fats, 25% protein and only 5% carbohydrates.
When preparing your Keto meal, try to remember that keto is high in fat, moderate in protein, and very low in carbs.
Typically, anywhere between 20-30g of net carbs is recommended for everyday dieting – but the lower you keep your carbohydrate intake and glucose levels, the better the overall results will be. If you’re doing keto for weight loss, it’s a good idea to keep track of both your total carbs and net carbs.
Protein should always be consumed as needed with fat filling in the remainder of the calories in your day.
You might be asking, “What’s a net carb?” It’s simple really! The net carbs are your total dietary carbohydrates, minus the total fiber. I recommend keeping total carbs below 35g and net carbs below 25g (ideally, below 20g).
Below is a Cameroon keto diet meal plan that we recommend for customers of our 14 days weight loss tea.
Our weight loss tea greatly suppresses appetite hence we assume during your 14 days weight loss journey, your meal plan would be limited to breakfast and dinner only.
*** On DAY 1 of the Weight Loss Journey…
Break fast – Fried egg mixed with Sardine with lots of Mayonaise
Dinner: Eru with lots of obstacles (meat, canda, fish) and small quantity of garri
*** On Day 2…

That said, if you follow this meal plan and create similar ones of your own, you should be able to see the results in no time!.
Keep your carbohydrate intake as low as possible.
Like i mentioned earlier, your nutrient intake should be something around 70% fats, 25% protein, and 5% carbohydrate.
If you’re finding yourself hungry throughout the day, you can snack on nuts, seeds, cheeses, or almond butter to curb your appetite.
Here are the foods you should consume if you want to go on a keto diet:
*** All sorts of fatty meats (including turkey, red meat, bacon, organ meat and so on);
*** Fatty fish (mackerel, tuna);
*** Seeds and nuts (walnuts, almonds, etc.);
*** Oils (palm oil, coconut oil, olive oil);
*** Low-carb fruit (coconut, pear);
*** Low-carb vegetables (lettuce, cabbage, Bitter leaf, Okong Obong, Green, cucumber, peppers, onions, tomatoes, okro, spinach, Eru);
*** Spices (everything, from salt and pepper to herbs).
You should avoid the following foods on keto diet:
*** Sugary foods and drinks (sweets, cake, fruit juice, smoothies, ice cream, soft drinks, etc.);
*** Starches or grains (wheat, noodles, cereal, pasta, rice, wheat-based products and so on);
*** All fruit (apart from avocado and coconut);
*** Legumes and beans;
*** Tubers and root vegetables (carrots, sweet potatoes, potatoes, plantain, yam);
*** Low-fat/diet products;

Below are some high calories Cameroonian foods that you should avoid when trying to lose weight…
*** Fufu corn
*** Soya Beans

I will conclude by making it clear that Keto dieting goes together with exercise.
You won’t lose much weight if you are on a Keto diet and don’t exercise.
While you are on a Cameroon keto diet, you can either work out or use our 14 days weight loss tea to boost your metabolism and you will notice a great transformation in your body within a short time frame.
