It can be fairly hard to start a diet, especially if you have never done one or you are not entirely informed of what you are getting yourself into.
Check out our healthy soda blog today to learn about the low-carb diet and determine if the ketogenic diet is right for you.
Hearing the term "low-carb" can be a huge turn off if you are a bread or pasta
lover, but not all good things have excessive amounts of carbohydrates.
Take our natural soda for instance! Only 2-6g of sugar, 15-25 calories, and 6g of carbs. Wave Soda is definitely a case of "less is more". Less artificial and unhealthy ingredients, more delicious keto soda flavor.
The keto diet plan is often called the caveman diet because it mimics the diet that cavemen used to have. All natural food items that could be hunted or gathered. This creates a diet in which you are decreasing your carb intake and mostly eating proteins and fats.
The thing about the ketogenic diet is that even though it is a low-carb diet, you don't have to sacrifice flavor or taste if you are doing it right.
