    Ketogenic Cuisine

    The ketogenic cuisine, as recommended in the context of the metabolism program dr.reinwald metabolic regulation®, uses high grade fats, fresh vegetables and salates (dependent on the season), meat, poultry and eggs in organic quality, as well as fish that have been caught. These ingredients are followed by moderate quantities of low-sugar fruit, nuts, seeds and full-fat dairy products. Count calories? Not necessary. One just has to pay attention to the types of the fats, the quantity and quality of the proteins and the glycemic loads of the side dishes and other ingredients.

    But with cream, if you don’t mind!

    Specifically, this means that a marbled pork collar is to be preferred over a lean turkey cutlet in any case. The broccoli florets should be doused in butter and refined with almond flakes. And for desert, there is natural yoghurt with raspberry puree and cream. Put briefly, connoisseurs will be more than satisfied and may eat until they are full. Which, by the way, happens relatively soon, due to the high proportion of fat. This is, of course, not good for the feed industry, which has high sales when we are constantly eating like cows on the pasture.

    A few basic rules.

    For cooking should be used above all, coconut oil, palm oil, cold pressed olive oil and ghee (clarified butter) which is so popular especially in Indian and Pakistani cuisine, also used in our house at grandmother's time still highly valued butter lard - in organic quality whenever possible. Fresh herbs and spices can be used as you please. And generous use of salt is also allowed. Thanks to a constantly low blood sugar level, the sodium excretion is not interfered with as with a diet rich in carbohydrates, so that salt exchange in the tissues works perfectly. The sugar metabolism not only pulls the lipid metabolism, but also pulls the metabolism of sodium into the abyss, which leads to the fact that sodium is stored in the tissues, thinned with water and can cause edema or high blood pressure.

    Hot hunger in the conversion phase? Cravings? Oh yeah, the sugar junkies get one´s just deserts here ... for sugar as well as wheat with its endorphins make addicted, like cocaine. It can dock at the cannabid structures of our brain as Dr David Perlmutter accurately describes in his book "The Grain Brain". But, you have to go through ... One or two tablespoons of coconut oil and lots of water may provide quick energy and satisfy your appetite. Need something to munch on? Up to 30g of nuts may be consumed each day. And don’t forget: breaks of at least 4 to 5 hours between meals are absolutely necessary. Only so will the pancreas, which dispenses insulin, recuperate, and for this the fat metabolism be stimulated.




    Don’t forget fermented products.

    Regular consumption of non-pasteurized fermented products is an important component of the metabolism program dr.reinwald metabolic regulation®. For example, it can be sauerkraut (raw pickled cabbage) from the market, preserved Korean kimchi, or probiotic B®AVO yoghurt stirred at home, that contains more than 40 bacterial cultures crucial for the gut´s core microbiome. Daily intake of natural, living lacto-bacteria builds up and maintains the flora in the large intestine.
