keto curious? here's some quick things you need to know
by team nuut
nuut: When do you fit in your nuut keto shake?
hs: I like them at breakfast. nuut keto is super delicious and really fills me up. It makes me feel incredibly energised. I have mine very simply – just water and ice. Sometimes I have one before working out. I find my body responds and performs better.
nuut: Do you snack?
hs: I haven’t had a snack in 3 years! I never feel hungry between meals. When I was younger, I used to eat lots of small meals throughout the day but always lacked energy. I like my body to rest and repair between meals.
nuut: What benefits have you experienced from following keto?
hs: My energy and emotional levels are more consistent. When I wasn’t doing keto and eating refined carbs, I was constantly feeling the highs and low. By 3pm, I would be ‘hangry’ and shaking with hunger, but on keto I feel my energy and hunger levels are always in balance. My weight has stabilised too. It used to go up and down, but now it is always consistent. Even when I’m on holidays and drinking alcohol, it doesn’t change.

nuut: What is dining out like on keto?
hs: Eating out is easy! Unless it’s risotto or pasta, 80% of the menu is food I can eat. For example, I might choose a bun-less burger, and because I’m modified keto, I can still have sweet potato fries. If eating steak, I don’t have the potatoes that come with it. Easy.
nuut: Do you ever splurge?
hs: I allow myself once a week to enjoy a burger or nice Italian meal.
I have been drinking alcohol more than usual, but my family is South African and French, so we love wine with our meals. I try and do 4 nights off a week. When I do drink, I try and set limits. It’s key for me.
