The keto diet

Ketogenic diets (aka keto diets) are strong metabolic factors that assist your body switch from consuming sugar (carbs) to burning fat. Results of that switch in fuel is a change in all sorts of health conditions. In practice, you get to eat real foods in the kind of essential fats and protein (meat, fish, poultry) while carbohydrates (sugars and starches) are this article, I’ll talk about how the diet works, and share on the proper implementation of the diet.

The digestion of carbohydrates (sugar and starch) releases sugar (glucose) into the bloodstream — higher carb intake effects in raising blood sugar and insulin, a pancreatic hormone that manages blood sugar. Keto replaces the dietary carb with fat and protein. Over time, your cells switch metabolic pathways and burn stored and dietary fat as a primary energy source instead of sugar. As more fat is burned, some of it is converted into ketone bodies. As blood glucose and insulin levels fall, and ketone levels rise, your muscles (skeletal and heart), use the fats in the bloodstream as fuel, while your brain uses the ketones. The outcome is more energy, more clear thinking as well as better health. Ketones are beneficial in several different ways, and being in this metabolic status of “nutritional ketosis” (where blood sugar is low, and ketone levels are moderate) has some important effects on your metabolism. There is substantial research evidence that these metabolic-affecting diets can be used to treat the following medical conditions note this is not all of them.

Epilepsy. Epilepsy is a disease that causes seizures due to excessive brain activity. …
Metabolic Syndrome. …
Glycogen Storage Disease. …
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) …
Diabetes. …
Some Cancers. …
Autism. …
Parkinson’s Disease.

A typical ketogenic meal involves 3-5 ounces of protein, generally cooked in natural fats (for example, butter, lard, duck fat, cream, olive oil, beef tallow, or coconut oil) with the bonus of non-starchy or green leafy vegetables such as lettuce, spinach, summer squash, or kale.

On a “typical” American diet, carbohydrate intake is high (about 40-60% of calories) while fat intake, and particularly saturated fat, is limited. In contrast, carbohydrate consumption on a keto diet is only about 2-4% of calories. When carb intake is low, meals are tasty and satiating. Hunger goes away, and more importantly, this dietary change has some powerful and beneficial metabolic impacts on the human body, in part because it reduces blood sugar and insulin levels.

Bottom line here is that the ketogenic diet is a potent metabolic tool for managing a broad range of illnesses. It is not a trend diet, and if it is performed correctly, it corrects metabolic function at the cellular level.
