Once people develop a mindset to lose weight, they often start their journey by turning to hunger. They limit their meals and consume less than they usually do. Nicole Rokita, an international model, wants to show them that there’s another way they can lose weight without compromising their hunger.
Nicole Rokita hails from the Windy City, known as Chicago, Illinois. There she grew up, working hard, and learning how to become an entrepreneur. From a young age, she knew which direction she wanted to take her life.
When she finished college, she moved to Los Angeles. By then, Nicole Rokita transitioned out of coding & development and UI/UX web & app development to pursue her goals of opening a restaurant. She had often been told that the restaurant industry was among the toughest, especially in Los Angeles, where nearly everything already set up shop. But nothing could stop her.
Nicole always loved a challenge. So what she did to bring something unique to the streets of LA was set up a restaurant that catered with a keto diet menu.
The keto diet is a diet that consists of low-carb, moderate protein, and higher-fat that can help people burn fat more effectively. Among its benefits are weight loss, health, and performance. The keto diet is especially useful for people who want to lose excess fat without having to go through hunger and is known to improve type 2 diabetes.
Coming up with a menu that could utilize the keto diet proved to be a challenge as it took Nicole Rokita over three years to perfect. Eventually, she was able to perfect this. She started making the usual delicacies that everyone loved — pizza, burgers, desserts — that not only retained the flavor that we all love so much but also kept people’s health in check. She would go on to open her restaurant niKETO, a play on her name and keto.
Her restaurant creates the same delicacies that everybody can’t get enough of without having to resort to the use of unnatural ingredients like preservatives or chemicals. Their menu lists foods that are gluten-free and low on carbohydrates. Nicole Rokita ensures that the food they make is served fresh and made to order.
She wants to raise awareness of scientific research that doesn’t support the teaching regarding the food pyramid and low-fat diets. Nicole aims to educate people on the right way to eating healthy as there is a lot of false information out there.
Nicole Rokita is proud to say that niKETO is the first and only restaurant in Los Angeles that offers food that follows the keto diet. The items on their menu are all low in carbohydrates, allowing their customers to enjoy relative flexibility when choosing other food items that plan to eat that day. Nicole wants to ensure her customers that they don’t accidentally go over their carbohydrate limit.
