Are You New to the Ketogenic Diet?
The Ketogenic Diet is a high-fat, moderate protein, low carbohydrate diet. The Ketogenic diet forces the body to burn its stored fat for energy compared to a typical diet where you’re burning carbohydrates (glucose).
Ketosis is the state where your body stops using glucose (carbohydrates) for energy, and instead starts to use fat as its main energy source.
When you reduce carbohydrates (the body’s primary energy source), the body starts to burn fat for energy instead, which leads to ketosis. Ketosis is when your body becomes efficient at burning fat into ketones. Ketones are energy molecules in the blood (similar to blood sugars), which become fuel for the brain and body.
The Ketogenic diet helps with:
- Weight Loss by Reducing Hunger
- Burn Unwanted Body Fat
- Maintain Muscles
- Improves Brain Function
- Improved Hormone Function
- More Youthful (Vibrant Skin)
Keto Diet Macronutrients:
- Fats - 70-75%
- Protein - 10-15%
- Carbohydrates - 5-10%
Ketosis kicks in after 3 or 4 days of following the keto diet
Ketosis is not a magic solution to weight loss; all that matters to lose weight is that you consume fewer calories than your body expends.
