The Cyclical Ketogenic Diet is not a fad diet anymore. As more and more people see the value of the diet, it is beginning to get the attention it deserves. From treating obesity to working with epilepsy, this diet has many benefits. The good news is that if you are looking for a way to lose weight and still enjoy some of those junk foods, then you have come to the right place.
The low carb diet has been called a long term “fad” in the news media. With so many variations to the low carb diet, it seems that this eating system will forever be in the news. Whether you are a football coach, administrative assistant or high school teacher, if you looking to turn fat into something else, namely muscle, the low carb cyclical ketogenic diet is for you.
Make no mistake; this is not the Atkins diet or some variation of that eating plan. Those who benefit the most from the Atkins plans are those who usually are not intense about physical activity and may limit their activity to 3 times a week of aerobic exercise such as walking. The cyclical ketogenic diet plan is for those who want to burn fat but more importantly, preserve muscle mass. Of course this will help keep up the intense workout programs associated with restructuring and fortifying your body.
Yes, you can and will lose weight using the Atkins plan. The problem with this plan though is you will also lose water and lean muscle mass as well. If you are athletic and want to keep your physical form, this is not the route you want to go. If followed properly the CKD will allow you to burn the fat and increase the muscle mass most people want. It has been scientifically proven that the more muscle mass you have, the healthy your body and bones will be in your later years. You get all of this, and you can still eat those fun foods on a Saturday night. What a deal!
Will it take some getting used to? Absolutely. It will take a few weeks to get your body accustomed to eating this way and fighting off the carb cravings. Be persistent and exercise some discipline. You will win in the end so think long term and take on the attitude of a finisher. It been said that all diets and all exercise programs work. It the people who choose not to work them. Getting your mental attitude together and learning how to think long term will be the key to your ultimate success on this diet.
I started working on the CKD as a way to better control my blood sugar. I quickly learned how to eat differently on this system yet still enjoy some of my favorite junk foods. I did not have to totally give up ice cream, pizza, popcorn or pasta. I just had to learn when to eat those foods in conjunction with the CKD program. The more I stayed on the program, the less I craved bad foods altogether and that was a major turning point. This will be a turning point for you too.
