Keto & Health Insights for Roast Pork Belly With Apple And Blue Cheese Recipes Recipe

  • Net Carbs are 2% of calories per serving, at 46g per serving. This food is at the upper limits (extremely risky) of what's considered keto-friendly and much higher than standard net carb guidelines for the keto diet. You risk kicking yourself out of ketosis and there's little flexibility to eat more foods that contain carbs. It's recommended that you track the macros of your daily food consumptions—this makes it easier to avoid overconsumption.
  • This meal's calories per serving is around 40% of a standard 2,000 calorie diet and probably higher if your calorie limit is lower than 2,000. If you plan to eat more meals later in the day, you should reconsider this item. If the portion size of this meal is large and satiates your appetite, and keeps you full until much later in the day, then you shouldn't have any worries. The problem is if you eat a lot of calories later, which puts you at risk for overconsumption.
  • This food's %DV (daily value percentage) for sodium is 38%. At 880mg, it's considered high in sodium according to the FDA's standard for %DV (daily value percentage), which considers any food with %DV of more than 20% as high in sodium. The organization recommends 2300mg of sodium as the daily limit. High sodium is believed to be associated with health problems such as heart disease, strokes, high blood pressure, and kidney malfunctions. There's also a belief that diets with high amounts of salt correlates with obesity, but the link hasn't proven to be so direct. Instead, salt may trigger overeating by increasing the feeling of hunger, according to studies referenced in this WebMD article about salt & obesity. Add-ons such as sauces and condiments are the usual high-sodium culprits in most restaurant meals. Sodium additives are responsible for most high sodium amounts in packaged foods, especially frozen meals. For most adults, a healthy range for daily maximum sodium consumption is between 1500-2300mg; foods should be within 5%-20% DV per serving.
