There is a lot of hype going on about the keto diet, and I believe it is famous for all the right reasons. If you haven’t heard of this diet yet, then don’t worry because in this article I will be telling you everything you need to know about it.
In a nutshell, the Keto diet is all about getting into so-called ketosis and keeping your body in that state. While in Ketosis, your body uses fat (ketones) instead of glucose (sugar) for energy. As a result, to remain in Ketosis, it’s crucial to expose your body only to little carbohydrates.
All these years people have been thinking that the “fats” in the foods actually make them fat and obese, but in reality, it’s often the carbohydrates from processed food that are the ones to blame for all the extra pounds you weigh.
To enter and stay in ketosis, approximately 75% of your daily calorie intake should come from healthy fats. When you cut out the supply of carbs to your body, your body enters into ketosis where it starts breaking down and burning the fat for energy.
By getting your body used to burning fat for energy, it’s more likely also to burn the fat stored in your body. As a result, the Keto diet has shown promising results in people to have significantly reduced their body fat in a short amount of time. However, one of the most overlooked aspects of any diet is the dietary lifestyle you derive from it.
