Keto Vs. Trim Healthy Mama
Are they the same? No but they do have some overlap.
This is going to be a very basic comment about the two diets. You can definitely read more about the ins and outs of each but this should give you a good general idea of Keto vs. Trim Healthy Mama.
The Keto diet is a very low carb, high fat diet that typically involves counting macros (fat/protein/carbs). You can read more about Keto here.
On Keto you avoid sugar and carbs. This includes most fruits and veggies that have high numbers of naturally occurring carbs.
Trim Healthy Mama
Fats and healthy carbs are allowed on Trim Healthy Mama but they are kept separate. So one meal would be a low carb meal (Like a keto meal), also called an “S” meal in the THM world.
Then three hours later your next meal could include healthy carbs like a sweet potato or fruit like peaches/apples or pineapple and would be kept low in fat. This type of meal reminds me of a heart healthy diet or even Weight Watchers.
You also avoid sugar on THM.
Which is Right For You?
This is a great question and it is really up to you.
I have personally had good experience with THM and lost 60 lbs postpartum after my second child.
I like the food freedom and being able to have healthy foods that are a bit heavier in carbs like fruits, carrots and sweet potatoes.
However, if you are following THM, the keto community can be a great resource for you for THM S meals.
