Vegan Keto Diet Plan – Veganism is a growing ideology based on the premise that all sentient beings should be respected, and that the consumption of animal products of any kind is an unethical practice that breaches this premise.
With the indefensible atrocities committed against animals in the meat & dairy industry, it’s easy to see why people feel so strongly about supporting the Vegan movement. A Vegan Ketogenic diet would appear to be the ultimate diet in terms of ethical consumption and fat loss, but meeting in the middle is not without compromise.
In contrast to the traditional Ketogenic diet that is based on the heavy consumption of animal fats, it would appear that the Vegan diet and Ketogenic diet are two opposite sides of a coin. A typical Vegan diet is structured based on a high carb-to-fat macronutrient ratio, while the Ketogenic diet requires a high fat-to-carb macronutrient ratio. Depending on which side you’re on, you’re probably armed with a study supporting your argument while debunking the other.
But could there actually be overlap? Could you enjoy the fat-burning benefits of nutritional ketosis while abiding by the ethical principles of Veganism? Is there such a thing as a Vegan Ketogenic Diet? The answer is of course, yes! The macronutrient ratio of the Ketogenic Diet is non-negotiable, therefore most of your calories should come from fat, with very few soluble carbohydrates (typically no more than 20 grams daily). The consumption of animal products with Veganism is non-negotiable, therefore all meat and dairy should be excluded. As difficult to fathom it may be, there are plenty of options.
