Discover How the Ketogenic Diet Promotes Weight Loss

Discover How the Ketogenic Diet Promotes Weight Loss

It is about time to start the New Year – New You. We all know what that means. New Years resolutions to lose weight that will most likely last about three to five weeks. Instead of following the same trail as in the past, this year Discover How the Ketogenic Diet Promotes Weight Loss.

The ketogenic diet has skyrocketed in popularity over the past few years. Its efficacy has been proven repeatedly by thousands of people who’ve adopted it and shed the excess pounds.

The interesting thing about the ketogenic diet is that it overturns conventional diet advice that has been making the rounds for decades. Ketogenic dieting involves eating fat to lose fat.
That itself is mind boggling to most people who have been avoiding fatty foods in the hopes of losing weight. After all, 1 gram of fat contains 9 calories!
So, how is it possible that one can lose weight by eating fat?

* The body burns fat more readily

To keep things simple, you need to understand that your body is designed to protect you. Fat is nothing more than stored fuel. When you consume more calories than you expend, the body stores the extra calories as fat, just in case you may need the energy in future.
However, most people never use up the stored fuel, so they just keep getting fatter and obese. The body gets so used to storing the fat that when you start dieting, it holds on to its fat stores stubbornly because of the sudden increase in demand for fuel.
It would rather burn the food you eat for fuel or deplete the glycogen in your muscles than burn the fat. When you start on a keto diet, your body realizes that its getting copious amounts of fat. So, it doesn’t cling on to it’s fat stores and burns them more readily, since there is a constant supply of fat.

* Suppressed appetite

This I really like. When you’re on a ketogenic diet, ketones will be released into your blood and this will suppress your appetite. The protein that you consume will increase satiety and reduce your sudden cravings for junk food.
Most importantly, since your carb intake is low, your body will not be subjected to the usual insulin spikes that come about due to carb consumption. It’s these blood sugar spikes that cause the body to store fat because excess insulin is transformed into fat through a series of processes within the body.

* Lipogenesis and lipolysis

Lipogenesis is the synthesis of fats which are then stored in your body. When you’re on a ketogenic diet, lipogenesis doesn’t really take place. So, you’re less likely to store fat.
The keto diet creates a process called lipolysis. This is also known as the breakdown of fat, and it speeds up fat loss. Your body is starting to burn fat for fuel, instead of carbs. When this happens, you’ll notice your fat loss accelerating and it’ll be much easier to lose weight.

* Carb restriction

This is the part that takes some guidance while getting started. When on a keto diet, your carb intake will be about 20 grams per day. This is exactly what the body needs to lose weight fast. We consume too much carbs, and these are difficult calories to burn.
Carbs can be addictive, and when consumed in excess, is transformed into glucose and then stored as fat. There are no such problems when you’re on a ketogenic diet.

the Ketogenic Diet Promotes Weight LossBy now, you’ll understand that the keto diet does not only make conditions unconducive for weight gain, but it also accelerates your fat loss. This two-pronged approach makes it a very effective diet for fat loss. You’ll be amazed at the results. I live the ketogenic lifestyle all year and feel great.

  • Thanks Amy, I have been doing it for a while now and the most surprising thing is that I am never hungry. I actually need to plan my meals so that I eat enough. There are some things that everyone needs to learn so that it is done correctly, such as the ratio of carbs to protein to fat. I will write more about that in the next week. Also I am always working on getting enough fiber so that is a mission I am spending time on at the moment. There are hundreds of “keto” recipes available online but having the correct ratio seems to be overlooked often as all the focus it on “Low-carbs” I will share this information along with recipes.

  • Chef, I am anxious to learn more about the keto diet, being somebody who is always trying to lose 5 to 10 lbs, without much success, at that! I will be following these posts with interest!
