What is the ketogenic diet?
The ketogenic diet, or keto diet, is a way of eating that may be beneficial to your health and help you lose weight more quickly. This low-carbohydrate, fat-rich eating plan has been used for centuries to improve health conditions, like childhood epilepsy and diabetes.
In recent years, the keto diet has gained much attention and popularity for its ability to help individuals lose weight fast. It encourages a diet high in fat consumption and moderate in protein consumption, and of course, low in carbohydrates. The diet is also sometimes called LCHF (low carbohydrate, high fat) or “No Starch, No Sugar” as it’s sometimes referred to at Medi-Slim Weight Loss.
How does the keto diet work?
The keto diet is based on the principles of a naturally occurring physical process that uses fat as energy rather than glucose. Glucose is primarily added to your diet by way of carbohydrates, and it’s normally your body’s main source of energy.
When carbohydrate intake becomes limited with little glucose available to be used as energy, the body switches its approach for energy production. It initiates a ketogenic process, which changes stored fat into ketones, a useable form of energy.
Essentially, this diet forces your body into a state that uses fat for energy. This can lead to a dramatic decrease in weight.
