What Is Keto About

  1. Keto is a Lifestyle of Eating

Keto is not really a diet it’s a metabolic state with more ketone bodies in the blood, you just eat low-carb meals, which means you replace carbs with high fat meals. Not only you’ll lose weight faster, you’ll also strengthen your immune system.

Normally, the body extracts energy from the carbohydrates supplied by food – it is therefore dependent on the supply of carbohydrates. If these carbohydrates are missing, the body has to help make use of an alternative energy source: FAT

In the liver, fats are then converted into ketone bodies, which are used instead of carbohydrates to generate energy and maintain the performance of the brain. This state of energy production is called “ketosis” and is the principle on which the ketogenic diet is based.

Ketogenic nutrition:

  • Very low carbohydrate food
  • Liver produces ketone bodies from fatty acids
  • Fat burning extremely elevated
  • Insulin secretion minimal
Avocado Fat
70-75% Fat (124-133g per day)
Eggs Proteins
20-25% Protein (80-100g per day)
Raspberry Carbs
5-10% Carb (20-50g per day)

 

 

 

 

Instead of burning sugar for energy, your body is burning fat for energy, it’ll turn your body into a fat burning machine.

    Interesting article on Keto diets. Does Keto diets help to lose weight ? I am also surprise on the long list of food to abstain from including Apples, Apricots and Bananas which all are my favourite. What exactly is the effect if we still eat those food in your list on “Food to avoid on Keto” ?

      Hi Jeff!

      Those foods spike insulin levels resulting in weight gain. Keto is a low carb high fat lifestyle, when you are ketogenic or in (Ketosis) the body is consistently in a fat burning state 24/7. Foods high in carbs/sugar will kick you out of Ketosis. Basically Keto keeps your insulin levels low so that the body isn’t triggered to store fats especially in the wrong places :))
