There are many outdated diets that just don’t hold as much clout as they used to in the past. Diets such as the Atkins, Southbeach and Slimfast have been proven to be flawed in one way or another.
What is this amazing diet we’re talking about? The Ketogenic Diet. It’s life changing benefits are what has earned this diet all of its praise in recent years. Below are just some of the benefits that have been discovered about the Keto Diet.
The Ketogenic Diet revolves around getting your body to achieve a certain Metabolic State known as Ketosis. During Ketosis your body produces ketones that are a result from burned fat.
These Ketones are the gold standard of fuel that your body uses to perform at peak levels. A great analogy to better understand the quality of ketones is thinking about fueling your car. Your car is going to ride and perform at a much higher level if you put premium gas in your tank versus standard level gas. Ketones represent premium fuel for your body’s performance.
How Do I Get my Body to Produce Ketones?
Reaching Ketosis involves providing your body with an abundance of healthy fats that could be used to burn for quality fuel in absence of glucose and other carbohydrate fuel. It is just as important to avoid carbohydrate and high sugar foods as it is to consume healthy fats on a Ketogenic Diet. Below is a Reference Checklist to consult with when choosing foods on a Keto Diet.
Beta-Hydroxybutyrate (BHB) which is one of the major ketones and catalysts of ketosis helps improve your body's inflammatory response. It has been known to help reduce inflammation in your body that is caused by physical wear and tear.
Ketosis may help to keep glucose levels low which can help you maintain healthy blood pressure levels. Ketones have also been known to help raise levels of healthy cholesterol (HDL) and manage your productions of bad cholesterol (LDL).
Muscle Production and Weight Management:
Ketones, mainly BHB, have been shown to promote muscle toning and spike your metabolism. BHB has been used by many athletes to sustain peak performance for longer intervals.
The Keto Diet also helps you find reserved sources of energy from ketones rather than carbohydrates that can affect sugar and glucose levels and lead to crash.
Ketones work to improve your body's metabolic efficiency. Metabolic efficiency involves using more premium sources of energy that work to give you more endurance, sustained focus and accelerated calorie burning energy.
Ketosis can help you manage your weight and get the energy to exercise more and improve your nutritional output.
The Ketogenic Diet has shown a lot of promise as a strong aid in a dynamic weight loss regiment.
Statistics show that excessive sugar and carbohydrates are really weighing our nation down. Everything we consume is loaded with saturated fats and high-fructose corn syrup. What is most frightening is, we've deemed our overloaded sugar and carb diets as normal.
You will realize after starting a Keto Diet that the foods that you thought were normal in the past were really weighing you down.
A Keto Diet will help you to shed off this excessive carb and sugar weight. Once your body is cleansed of all toxins, your Keto Diet will really be able to ramp up. All of your fuel will now come from healthy fats that you are putting into your body on a daily basis.
You will realize how empowering and invigorating it feels to thrive off of premium fuel. This fuel, made up of ketones will give you the boost that you need to exercise like never before. If you follow a Ketogenic Diet consistently, you will notice just how amazing the results can be.
