ABIGAIL: CREAM, BUTTER, BACON. HOW ABOUT THAT FOR A DIET? JESSICA: PEOPLE ARE ACTUAL
LOSING WEIGHT EATING THAT STUFF. SO WE WANTED TO KNOW WHAT’S THIS
KETO CRAZE ALL ABOUT?>>WE’RE GONNA START WITH JUST A
LITTLE BIT OF BUTTER. JESSICA: EAT MORE FAT. TO FUEL YOUR BODY. IT’S THE BASIS BEHIND THE
KETOGENIC DIET.>>YOU EAT IT AND YOU KE
LOSING, AND IT KEEPS BLOWING
YOUR MIND. JESSICA: POUND AFTER POUND GONE.>>I’VE LOST ABOUT 40 POUNDS. JESSICA: THIS HIGH-FAT, VERY
LOW-CARB DIET LOWERS BLOOD SUGAR
AND INSULIN LEVELS. INSTEAD OF BURNING GLUCOSE, YOU
BURN FAT. IT’S A METABOLIC PROCESS CALLED
KETOSIS.>>IT’S KINDA LIKE A REBOOT,
LIKE YOU GO BACK TO ORIGINAL
FACTORY SETTINGS WHERE YOU DON’T
CRAVE SUGAR THE WAY YOU DID
BEFORE. JESSICA: SARAH PARKER LOST
74-POUNDS IN A YEAR.>>IT’S BEEN VERY EASY THE WHOLE
TIME.>>IT IS AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO
LOSE WEIGHT QUICKLY NO DOUBT
ABOUT THAT. JESSICA: SO WHAT EXACTLY CAN YOU
EAT ON THE KETO DIET? THINGS LIKE NUTS, AVOCADO, OLIVE
OIL, GRASS-FED BUTTER AND BEEF
OR CHICKEN, CERTAIN FRUITS LIKE
BLUEBERRIES, AND LEAFY GREENS.>>THESE ARE PORK MEATBALLS MADE
WITH PORK, EGG AND PARMESAN
CHEESE. JESSICA: JUST ASK JENN SNOW,
SHE’S A KETO CHEF.>>I THINK WHENEVER PEOPLE
REALLY LOOK AT IT AND LOOK AT
ELIMINATING PROCESSED FOODS
PRIMARILY, THEY’LL SEE THAT
THAT’S REALLY THE HEALTHIER
OPTION. JESSICA: LOOK ONLINE AND YOU’LL
FIND COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE KETO
FLU BRAIN FOG, MUSCLE PAIN, AND
TROUBLE SLEEPING IN THE FIRST
FEW WEEKS.>>I EXPERIENCED IT THE SAME THE
NIGHT THAT I STARTED. JESSICA: THE KETOGENIC DIET IS
ACTUALLY A MEDICAL DIET TO LOWER
EPILEPTIC SEIZURES.>>IF PEOPLE WANT TO USE IT
BRIEFLY AS A QUICK WEIGHT LOSS
AND THEN GET BACK TO A MORE
SUSTAINABLE DIET, I THINK IT’S A
REASONABLE THING, IT’S JUST VERY
HARD TO STAY ON. PEOPLE TEND TO REBOUND. JESSICA: AND, IF YOU’RE NOT
CAREFUL, EXPERTS SAY IT COULD
RAISE YOUR BAD CHOLESTEROL. NOT TO MENTION GIVE YOU BAD
BREATH. BUT SOME SWEAR BY IT, AND THE
PROOF —
>>I FEEL THE HEALTHIEST I’VE
EVER BEEN IN A VERY LONG TIME
— LONG TIME. JESSICA: IS ON THEIR WAISTLINE. SARAH SAYS HER WEIGHT LOSS HAS
SLOWED AFTER A YEAR, BUT SHE
PLANS TO STICK WITH IT. ABIGAIL: BAD BREATH, THAT’S AN
INTERESTING SIDE EFFECT. AS YOU SAID, THE HIGH
CHOLESTEROL, IT COULD BE HARD TO
STICK WITH, BUT IT SEEMS TO BE
WORKING FOR SOME PEOPLE. JESSICA: THERE ARE A LOT OF
PEOPLE BIG FANS OF IT. ALWAYS CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR
BEFORE YOU START ANY DIET. WE’VE POSTED SOME KETO RECIPES
ON OUR KOCO APP. LOOK IN THE AS SEEN ON SEC
