Eating fat to burn fat sounds very strange right? However its so true!! This fantastic and inexpensive lifestyle has so many researched and well proven medical benefits, for example lowering risk for heart disease, diabetes, cancer, stroke and much more. the added bonus is total and complete weight loss!!.
This doesn’t mean stuffing your belly with fatty oils, on the contrary I’m talking about a high-fat, moderate protein, low in carbohydrate restricted diet designed to make the body burn fat for fuel.
Ketogenic diet is a globally proven and enjoyable experience where the body produces ketones in the liver to be used as energy
This is achieved by eating the food which is high in fat, adequate in protein and low in carbohydrates. Basically we are lowering carb intake…..simple!!
Anything in the region of around 30 grams of carbohydrates is good however if you are really going for it then targeting 15 grams or less is a real winner. Now we are seriously talking Ketosis.
Ketosis is a process the body naturally adapts to in order to function when food intake is low.
During the stage of Ketosis, the body produces ketones which are produced from fats which breakdown in the liver.
In the good old days, glucose was the preferred energy source by eating food high in carbohydrates. Modern scientific evidence now shows that once the body is keto-adapted fat is used as the main energy source though ketosis. As an added bonus, the fat is not stored in the bloodstream.
