What’s a Ketogenic Diet?

“Ketogenic” is a term that refers to a low-carb diet, similar to the Atkins diet. You want to consume more calories from fat and protein, and less carbohydrates. The easiest carbs to digest are sugar, soda, pastries and white bread.

How It Works

Your body will eventually run out of fuel (blood sugar), if you consume less than 50g of carbs per day. This usually takes between 3 and 4 days. This is when you can start to use fat and protein for energy. You may lose weight. This is known as ketosis. The ketogenic diet, which is short-term and focuses on weight loss, not health benefits, is important.

Who Uses It?

A ketogenic diet is most commonly used to lose weight. However, it can also be used to manage certain medical conditions like epilepsy. Although it may be beneficial for people suffering from certain brain diseases and heart disease, there is still much to learn. If you have type 1, talk to your doctor to determine if a ketogenic diet is safe.

Weight Loss

Many people search online for how to use the keto diet to lose weight? Why? Because the ketogenic diet can help you lose weight faster than other diets in the first three to six months. It may be that it takes more calories for fat to be converted into energy than it does for carbs to be converted into energy. However, it is possible that a high-fat and high-protein diet will satisfy you better, so that you eat less. This hasn't been proven yet.

Cancer

Insulin is a hormone that allows your body to store or use sugar as fuel. The ketogenic diet allows you to burn this fuel quickly so that you don't have to store it. Your body will make and use less insulin. These lower insulin levels could help you protect yourself against certain types of cancer, or slow down the growth of cancer cells. This is a subject that requires more research.

Heart Disease

Although it seems odd that a diet that requires more fat can increase "good" cholesterol while lowering "bad", ketogenic diets have been linked to this effect. These diets may have lower levels of insulin, which can prevent your body from making more cholesterol. This means that you are less likely to develop high blood pressure, hardened arterial walls, heart disease, or other conditions. However, it's not clear how long these effects will last.
