What
you should consume: Let’s start off with
what a ketogenic diet entails.
By choosing this route, you will be drastically
cutting your carbohydrate intake, and essentially
replacing it with fat.
This reduction in carbs is said to put your
body in a metabolic state known as ketosis,
according to HealthLine.
In this state, your body will adapt to becoming
far more efficient at burning fat for energy,
which enhances weight loss, and furthermore,
turning the fat into ketones in the liver,
which becomes a supply of energy for the brain.
Through this diet, your blood sugar and insulin
levels will decrease, as well as your glucose
consumption, and your body’s metabolism
will shift away from carbs to fat and ketones
instead.
It’s important to remember, though, that
before you embark on any new kind of diet,
you should consult with a physician to make
sure that you are not putting your health
at risk.
If you are a senior, overweight, or have any
medical conditions, you should always speak
to a doctor or medical health professional
first.
To achieve ketosis, you will need to know
what you should and should not consume.
According to Diet Doctor, it is recommended
to keep your carb intake to under 50 grams
per day, as the fewer carbs you eat, the more
effective, and you should avoid starchy foods
like bread, pasta, rice, and potatoes, which
also contain a lot of glucose.
What you eat should primarily be high in fat,
and moderately high in protein.
Your meals should be based on meats, fish,
eggs, butter and cheeses, nuts and seeds,
healthy oils, avocados, and low-carb vegetables.
As for what is recommended to drink, water
is always a good idea, as well as coffee or
tea, ideally without sugar or sweeteners.
In what might excite some, an occasional glass
of wine is also acceptable.
Caffeine is known as an appetite suppressant,
so in the event that you have a craving, you
can drink coffee (preferably black coffee),
which can suppress your appetite and eliminate
your craving.
Drinking a lot of water can also help suppress
your appetite and make you feel full, so be
sure to drink lots of water and stay hydrated
throughout the day.
If you experience a craving, gulp down a big
glass of water.
The water will make you feel full and eliminate
your craving!

There are multiple versions of the ketogenic
diet.
In the ketogenic diet, there are different
options and versions available to you, according
to HealthLine.
The standard will include a very low-carb,
moderate-protein, and high-fat route, which
is broken down into 75% fat, 20% protein,
and just 5% carbs.
For the cyclical option, it divides the week
into five ketogenic days, followed by two
high-carb days.
In the targeted option, it enables you to
add carbs around workouts, and lastly, the
high-protein option introduces a ratio of
60% fat, 35% protein, and 5% carbs, similar
to the typical ketogenic diet.
It’s important to know, that only the standard
and high-protein options have been studied
in depth, and are the most recommended paths
for those looking into this diet.

The ketogenic diet keeps you feeling full.
The ketogenic diet is suitable for anyone
looking to prevent major diseases, and be
on top of their weight.
Luckily, it happens to be a very filling diet,
which allows you to lose weight without keeping
track of calories, according to HealthLine.
When starting this diet, it’s important
to stick to it to avoid bodily shock, as it
will work towards changing many aspects of
your bodily functions.
By sticking to the diet, keeping track of
your macronutrients, and eating the right
foods, you will find that the ketogenic diet
will keep you feeling full.
Once your body adjusts to the diet, you will
notice that you no longer experience any cravings
and that you feel full after all of your meals.
Of course, if you find that any new type of
diet that you try is making you feel less
energized or even sick, it’s best to speak
to a professional about it.
Some diets work for certain people, while
other types of diets work for other people.

It can help prevent cancer.
When it comes to preventing major diseases
like cancer, the idea of the ketogenic diet
is that cancer cells need glucose to thrive.
A review of some of the available scientific
research on the topic by The International
Journal of Preventive Medicine showed that
the studies “indicate that the Ketogenic
Diet had an inhibitory effect on tumor growth
and 9 researchers expressed that the Ketogenic
Diet could enhance survival time.”
This type of research shows that, since carbs
turn into glucose in your body, the limitation
of carbs will lower your glucose levels which
will deplete cancer cells of their energy
source, and essentially starve the cancer
cells to death.
This can be further justified by a German
researcher by the name of Dr. Otto Warburg,
who achieved a Nobel Prize for his discoveries
about the differences between cancer cells
and healthy cells, and the discovery that
malignant tumors feed on sugar.
Evidently, sugar can be detrimental and contributes
to other diseases as well, so a diet that
introduces a much lower sugar and carb intake
would certainly be effective in the prevention
of significant illnesses.
It could also help pre-diabetic and diabetic
patients.
A 2013 review of the therapeutic uses of very-low-carbohydrate
(ketogenic) diets by The European Journal
of Nutrition showed that a ketogenic diet
has a more positive effect on blood sugar
control than other diets.
In the modern day and age we live in, people
worldwide constantly seek alternative diets
and ways of life in hopes of preventing major
diseases and staying in shape.
People appear to be more conscious than ever
before when it comes to their food intake,
with many options available now that cater
to an individual’s specific wants and needs.
When it comes to averting illnesses and keeping
on track with your weight, there appears to
be a developing and rewarding diet that is
worth your consideration and attention.
Introducing the Ketogenic Diet.
This particular route is a low-carb, high-fat
diet that comes with many health benefits.
According to HealthLine, over 20 studies show
that this specific diet will aid you on your
path to weight loss, and prevent significant
diseases such as diabetes, cancer, epilepsy,
and Alzheimer’s disease.
The work of health professionals like Dr.
Valter Longo, from the University of Southern
California’s Davis School of Gerontology,
has also shown that low-calorie diets can
slow tumor growth and starve cancer cells
of the glucose they require for fermentation.
The ketogenic diet may be difficult to adjust
to at first as your body begins to get used
to the lack of carbohydrates, so you may feel
discouraged at first to stop the diet all
together.
If you pull through and stick to the diet,
you will notice results.
This is a highly beneficial and rewarding
diet for anyone looking to enhance their overall
bodily performance and hoping to prevent the
health obstacles that could deter a prolonged
life.
Please keep in mind that diet alone cannot
cure chronic conditions like cancer and diabetes.
The data available only suggests that it might
help prevent those conditions in some limited,
highly-controlled cases.
If you are overweight or have any medical
conditions, you should always consult with
a physician before making any changes to your
diet.
In addition to changes in diet, you should
also include an exercise plan in your life.
Exercise even a few times a week is great
for your overall physical health as well as
your overall mental health.
If you are not sure how to put together a
workout plan, consult with a fitness instructor
or fitness professional to find out what kind
of fitness plan works for you.
Remember, you are what you eat!
If you are overweight and are looking for
a diet that can keep you accountable and help
you lose that weight, try out the ketogenic
diet.
