Keto Diet – Everything You Should Know

Considering the Keto Diet?

But do you really know how it works?

The ketogenic diet is well-known for being a low-carb diet in which the liver produces ketones for energy.

When you consume a high-carbohydrate meal, your body will produce glucose and insulin.

Since glucose is being used as the primary source of energy, fats are no longer required and are therefore stored. On a normal, high-carbohydrate diet, glucose is the primary source of energy for the body. By consuming fewer carbohydrates, the body enters a metabolic state known as ketosis.

Ketosis is a natural process that the body initiates when food intake is inadequate to ensure survival. During this state, the breakdown of fats in the liver results in the production of ketones.

When your body is overloaded with fats and deprived of carbohydrates, it begins to use ketones as its primary source of energy.

Benefits of the Keto Diet

  • It helps lose weight.
  • It may reduce risk factors for Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and heart diseases.
  • It may help polycystic ovary syndrome by lowering insulin levels.

  • It’s being explored as a cancer treatment as a Ketogenic diet may slow tumour growth.

How to begin a Keto diet plan?

First and foremost, consult a healthcare provider. They can alert you to any unnecessary risks you might face with these changes to your diet.

If you’re given the all-clear to give keto a try, consider consulting with an experienced dietitian to determine the most balanced diet possible, as well as any supplements you may need to take.
