An important part of the ketogenic diet is getting your greens and veggies. In fact most keto purists recommend that all carbs consumed on this diet should come from vegetables.
20g of carbs from veggies equals to 7 to 10 cups of veggies. 1 scoop of Dr. Berg’s Organic Wheat Grass Juice Powder equals 3 cups of veggies. Although I consume fresh veggies everday I like using this product to make sure I’m getting enough. There are some days when I simply don’t have enough of an appetite to be able to consume a large quantity of food. The wheat grass juice helps to make sure I get the nutrients without having to consume a large quantity of food.
I also use the organic wheat grass juice as part of my routine when breaking a fast. I usually break my fast with 1 Tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinager (ACV) in water followed immediately by the wheat grass juice. This is important because the body is like a sponge when in a fasted state. Providing the body with nutrients is very important. Drinking the wheat grass juice delivers a large quantity of vegetable based nutrients when the body is in a very receptive state.
If you consume high amounts of fat without enough greens over time you may develop a condition known as fatty liver. Eating enough vegetables prevents this from happening.
