Introduction to Keto Protein & Diet Supplements

Keto diets seem to have taken over the world – there are new keto diet supplements being released every day. Some have wild claims, but how can we tell which ones are actually beneficial and healthy? 

In this article, we’ll be introducing the various keto supplements on the market and how to choose the best ones. 

What is Keto?

Keto is a diet that is simply very low in carbs and high in fats. This combination has shown promising results for quick weight loss! The media usually portrays animal-based keto, but this is not the healthiest. 

At Ground Based Nutrition, we focus on healthier plant-based forms of protein (as well as the world’s first plant-based keto protein powder)!

What Is Keto Protein Powder?

The Ground Based KetoFit protein powder is the first plant-based protein powder created specifically for keto diets. It’s intended to keep you in ketosis longer, help you build muscle, burn fat, and boost your metabolism.

We created the ideal macronutrient ratio just for keto diets – 70% calories from fat, 25% calories from protein, and less than 5% of the calories from carbohydrates (0 net carbs). It’s the perfect keto protein powder for those who want to lose weight quickly, in a healthy manner. 

Is Plant-Based Better?

Short answer – yes! 

Animal-based keto diets are filled with cholesterol and dangerous long-term side effects. You might lose weight by abundantly eating bacon and cheese every meal, but your body will punish you later down the line. You become at risk for heart disease, cancer, etc. 

Instead, a plant-based diet alkalizes and better energizes the body. They’ll provide all the weight loss results you desire, while avoiding the negative long-term effects. Plus, a plant-based keto diet is just as delicious and easy! There are a wealth of recipes to take advantage of. 


Other Helpful Keto Diet Supplements


Aside from protein, there are more supplements that those following keto diets should be aware of. These may help get into ketosis quicker, diminish hunger, and a variety of other benefits. 

Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs)

MCTs is a common supplement for keto diets because they help you stay in ketosis. The body is able to produce more ketones from MCTs than any other dietary fats. They usually come in the form of oil, but our MCT powder is easier to add to drinks, smoothies, or anything else you may like! We also include an MCT blend in our KetoFit protein. 


On any keto diet, our body will require more magnesium than usual to help regulate sodium and potassium levels. 

Electrolytes (through Supplements or Food) 

The keto diet can be challenging, especially during the first couple of weeks while the body adapts to less carbs. Sodium, potassium, and magnesium levels drop. The body will need more sodium, so you can simply salt your foods more or invest in a supplement like Snake Juice. You should also increase your magnesium and potassium intake. 

Digestive Enzymes

Digestive enzymes can help your body digest this burst in fatty foods. Without them, you may experience nausea, diarrhea, or bloating since your body is likely not used to digesting so much fat. 

Exogenous Ketones

These supplements are ketones supplemented through an external source and are used to increase blood ketone levels. In turn, this helps you reach ketosis quicker. Other benefits may include improved athletic performance, decreased appetite, and quicker muscle recovery (although more research is required to verify these benefits) 


Bottom Line

Overall, keto diet supplements can help boost your results to the next level. When combining our plant-based keto protein powder with a few other diet supplements like Magnesium, you’ll never have to worry about hitting your nutritional needs!
