There are many myths about the Keto diet. Basically, it is a conversion process that takes the body from burning sugars, or glucose, which is a quick form of energy, to burning fats, which are a longer source of energy. Fats contain just over two times the calories per gram, so when one converts their system to be a fat burning one, more weight is lost. Tips to help boost one’s weight loss are intermittent fasting,getting quality sleep, reducing stress, exercise, and stay hydrated, while avoiding sugary drinks and stay completely away from artificial sweeteners.
- The ketogenic diet keeps your body in ketosis by strictly limiting carbohydrates and cutting out glucose. It is a high protein, high fat diet.
- Getting enough exercise, good sleep, avoiding sugar substitutes and drinking lots of water will help you succeed in the ketogenic diet.
- Supplementing with MCT oil can help get you into ketosis even with glycogen still in your system.
“Keto is not a fad that comes and goes like so many other diets. It is based on a solid understanding of human physiology and nutrition science.”
