Do you dream of having a diet that burns your fat, supports your brain, and keeps your blood sugar level all day?
I know, it sounds too good to be true, but the ketogenic diet has sustained the test of time and is growing more and more popular.
The way it works is changing how your body receives its energy. Instead of converting it from your bread and pasta, you can train your body to convert it from fat.
By denying your body carbs, which your body converts into glucose, and supplying it with healthy fat, it drives your body into ketosis. In ketosis, ketones are produced by the breaking down of fat in your liver. Having optimal ketones in the body provides many benefits.
Because the body is no longer dependent on glucose for its energy, there is not the same kind of drop in energy levels. Without the high levels of glucose in the blood, and an excess of insulin from being released, your body will regulate your blood sugar and can reverse insulin resistance.
This diet has been used to reverse and support a number of neurological and cognitive disorders. It began as a solution for patients with epilepsy and has been proven to help those with alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis, autism, and brain cancer by correcting cell energy usage.
What appeals to most people is that you can actually lose weight by eating fat on this diet. Having a high, healthy fat diet diminishes hunger and instead of putting on weight, like you would on a high carb diet, it actually burns the fat that your body has been storing.
With all the information and recipes on the internet, this diet is completely manageable and could help you become a happier, healthier you!
