Well, if you spend much time surfing the internet on the topic of Ketogenic ( Keto) Diet or on Facebook groups you are certain to come across a bunch of unfamiliar abbreviations and acronyms. If you are my age or a bit younger we have already had to learn new abbreviations to be able to text with our children. I still do not have them all learned but it is a skill I want to acquire both in the realm of Keto and texting. For now, – just for grins and giggles – let’s go over a few of them for Keto.
- BPC = Bullet Proof Coffee – This is putting some type of healthy oil in your coffee such as a tablespoon of butter, coconut oil or MCT Oil (medium chain triglycerides)
- HF = High Fat
- HWC = Heavy Whipping Cream (always check the nutritional information since they can contain carbs)
- IF = Intermittent Fasting
- IR = Insulin Resistant
- LC = Low Carb
- SAD = Standard American Diet – it is a very sad 🙁 way of eating
- SW = Start Weight
- WOE = Way of Eating
- WOL = Way of Living
This is just a short list so if you are interested in a much more detailed list please check out this link.
Here is one acronym I just came up with from the word BACON:
B = Breakfast or anytime
A = Approved for eating on Keto
C = Carb Free (most of the time but check your sugars on the label)
O = Oh my! It is so good!
N = Never enough (well, once you are keto-adapted you won’t able to eat more than a few slices at a meal)
