• Low Carb, High Fat: The ketogenic diet is characterized by drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat. Typically, it involves consuming around 70-80% of calories from fat, 20-25% from protein, and only 5-10% from carbohydrates.
  • Entering Ketosis: By severely limiting carbohydrate intake, the body switches its primary fuel source from glucose to ketones, which are produced from the breakdown of fats in the liver. This metabolic state is known as ketosis.
  • Weight Loss: The keto diet is popular for its ability to promote weight loss, primarily through the mechanism of burning fat for fuel. When the body is in ketosis, it becomes more efficient at using stored fat for energy, leading to weight loss.
  • Appetite Control: High-fat and moderate-protein meals on the keto diet can help control hunger and appetite, leading to reduced calorie intake and potential weight loss benefits.
  • Stable Blood Sugar Levels: With minimal carbohydrate intake, there are fewer spikes and crashes in blood sugar levels, which can be beneficial for individuals with insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes.
  • Improved Mental Clarity and Focus: Many individuals report enhanced mental clarity and focus when in ketosis, possibly due to the steady supply of energy from ketones to the brain.
  • Potential Health Benefits: Research suggests that the ketogenic diet may have therapeutic benefits for various health conditions, including epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, certain types of cancer, and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
  • Nutrient-Rich Foods: Although the diet restricts certain food groups like grains, legumes, and fruits, it emphasizes nutrient-rich foods such as non-starchy vegetables, healthy fats (e.g., avocados, nuts, seeds), and high-quality proteins (e.g., meat, fish, eggs).
  • Electrolyte Balance: When transitioning into ketosis, it’s important to maintain electrolyte balance by increasing intake of sodium, potassium, and magnesium, as the body excretes more of these minerals in the initial stages of the diet.
  • Potential Side Effects: Some individuals may experience temporary side effects when starting the ketogenic diet, often referred to as the “keto flu,” which may include fatigue, headache, dizziness, nausea, and irritability. These symptoms typically subside within a few days to weeks as the body adapts to using ketones for fuel.
  • Long-Term Sustainability: While the keto diet can be effective for short-term weight loss and certain health conditions, its long-term sustainability and potential risks are still under investigation. It’s essential to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new dietary regimen, especially one as restrictive as the ketogenic diet.

Calories: 301kcal.



  • 2 ½ cups almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ¼ cup unflavoured whey protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup Swerve Granular
  • 5 large eggs room temperature.
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup whipping cream
  • ½ cup water

Butter Glaze:

  • 5 tablespoon butter
  • ⅓ cup Swerve Granular
  • 2 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1 to 2 tablespoon Confectioner’s Swerve
  • Preheat oven to 325F. Grease a bundt cake pan VERY well and then dust with a few tablespoon of almond flour. Pro Tip: double-grease your pan to help prevent sticking. Use a solid fat first, like butter or coconut oil, and then a spray like coconut or avocado.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, whey protein, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a large bowl, beat the butter and the sweetener together until light and creamy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract. Beat in the almond flour mixture and then beat in the whipping cream and water until well combined.
  • Transfer the batter to the prepared baking pan and smooth the top. Bake 50 to 60 minutes, until golden brown and the cake is firm to the touch. A tester inserted in the center should come out clean.
  • Butter Glaze:In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the butter and sweetener together. Whisk until well combined. Whisk in the water and vanilla extract.
  • While the cake is still warm and in the pan, poke holes all over with a skewer. Pour the glaze over and let cool completely in the pan.
  • Gently loosen the sides with a knife or thin rubber spatula, then flip out onto a serving platter. Dust with powdered sweetener.
  • Serve with lightly sweetened whipped cream and fresh berries.
