Interview with Robert Santos-Prowse, chatting about combining concepts from the mediterranean diet with the keto diet.
Keto isn’t all about eggs, bacon, and cheese. Heck, of those three “keto things,” I’m sensitive to two of them. To me, keto is more focused on a high intake of saturated fats, monounsaturated fats (MUFA) and omega-3 fatty acids, all from whole food, nourishing sources.
However, MANY ketogenic people have a lopsided intake of their fats, consuming far too many saturated fats, trans fats and omega-6 fatty acids, and not nearly enough heart-healthy monounsaturated fats (think: avocado oil, olive oil) and omega-3 (think: salmon and low-mercury fish).
