The Ketogenic Diet is a very low-carbohydrate diet. In it, carbohydrate-rich foods are replaced by protein-rich and fat-rich foods. This puts the body into a metabolic state called ketosis, which results in health benefits such as much more efficient metabolism of fat for energy and improved insulin sensitivity.
Because of the high protein and fat content of the diet, it enhances a sense of fullness and prevents feelings of deprivation. This makes it an excellent method for losing weight and keeping it off. The Cinder Grill is a very effective cooking method for use with the ketogenic diet, in several ways.
Perfectly Cooked Proteins
The cornerstone of the Ketogenic Diet is an improved protein intake. Many protein-rich foods, such as meat, poultry, and fish, are quite temperature-sensitive and often easy to overcook. The Cinder Grill’s 1F precision prevents overcooking by bringing the food precisely to the temperature you set it to. Think a perfect medium rare steak at 133F or perfectly moist chicken at 155F. No diet is sustainable if you don’t enjoy what you’re eating, and the Cinder Grill’s precision will ensure that you enjoy every bite.
Expanding Your Repertoire
Learning a new way of eating involves learning different recipes and different methods of preparation. The Cinder Grill is invaluable here as well. For instance, one recommended category of foods for the ketogenic diet is seeds, including nuts. There are many ways to add nuts and seeds to one’s diet, including toasting them and crushing them to thicken sauces without starch, or adding them whole to salads and other low-carbohydrate vegetable dishes. However, toasting nuts can be risky -- whether in the oven, in a skillet, or in the microwave, there’s a very short time between perfectly toasted and bitterly burnt. With the Cinder’s temperature control and spacious griddle plates, toasting nuts becomes foolproof. This is just one example of how the Cinder Grill can contribute to the ketogenic diet.
Versatility and Added Flexibility
Because the Cinder Grill handles temperatures so well, it provides versatility and flexibility as you adapt the ketogenic diet to your individual lifestyle. Are you concentrating on finding the perfect steak doneness to your taste? Find the temperature precisely with the Cinder Grill. Are you experimenting with a new dish you’ve never cooked before? The Cinder Grill takes temperature control out of the variables. Do you need both low heat to cook protein through and high heat to toast spices and seeds for a rich sauce? The Cinder Grill can go from cooking at low temperature all the way to searing and back again.
