Why you should do a ketogenic diet to lose fat!! It’s a high protein, low carb diet with endless benefits and effects to your nutrition, metabolism, and overall health.
#6 – A ketogenic diet is actually good for your health!!
Studies have shown that ketogenic diets have a lot of favorable effects on your body, such as less oxidative stress, reduced inflammation, an improved body composition (meaning, more muscle, less fat) and increased insulin sensitivity!! Wow, sign me up if it means I’m gonna age less, have less fat, be able to use carbs more efficiently, and feel amazing!!
#5 – You gain focus and protect your brain from neuronal stress!!
Research has found that ketones increases focus. Here’s a little background; ketones are produced when there isn’t glucose around for your liver to break down for energy, so your liver breaks down fatty acids instead, hence, Ketones. Now, Ketones inhibit the production of antioxidants, which basically beat up on protein and membrane structures in our brain!! Antioxidants are hallmarks for neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Not only do ketones inhibit the production of antioxidants, they also break down these little bastards!!
#4 – A ketogenic diet has been linked to better blood profile and cholesterol panels!
Research has shown adaptation to a ketogenic diet is associated with decreases in resting blood glucose, lower triglycerides, and increased HDL levels—all of which means improved heart health AND help for folks out there with diabetes. If you got any of these issues, definitely go keto for a few weeks to see how your body responds!!
#3 – Metabolic effects when you go keto!
Research studies have been done on Ketogenic diets compared to a traditional diet with moderate to high carbs and low fat. The people on the ketogenic diet were on a 1800 calorie diet, while the people on a traditional low fat and moderate-high carb diet were on a 1500 calorie diet. Guess who lost more fat? The people on the ketogenic diet!
#2 – You spare lean body tissue!!
Very low levels of carbohydrates are essential for full keto-adaptation to take place. This is important because ketones have been shown to prevent amino acids from being broken down, and of course this means your muscles are spared. In short, Ketones spare mass. Sign me up for anything that spares me muscle tissue and cuts down my bodyfat!!
#1 – It’s the most efficient way to lose fat!!
A landmark study and gave them all the same amount of protein and calories, and put them in a calorie deficit. The three groups either ate 104, 60, and 30 grams of carbohydrates per day, while consuming the same amount of overall calories.
What happened?? . In the 104-gram carb group, 25 percent of the weight lost was in the form of muscle, while the 30-gram group lost virtually no muscle. What!! Keto-adaptation is where your body shifts its primary fuel source from carbs to fat and ketones. Research has shown the average amount of fat individuals use during exercise is about 30 grams an hour. However when someone is adapted to ketosis, they used on average 90 grams of fat per hour during exercise!!!! A Ketogenic diet has been found to be the most efficient way to lose bodyfat.
